Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has taken on a new role in the era of the Wuhan coronavirus as an expert in the realm of infectious diseases, appearing on multiple media platforms to expound on the response to the virus. [...] Gottlieb expounded at length on infectious disease, predicting that “the scenes out of New York are going to be shocking.”

One problem: Gottlieb is not an expert on the spread of infectious disease, and has never focused on that area of health policy work. In fact, he is best known for his role at the FDA in fomenting a deceptive moral panic over vaping.
