I'd take it over a MD, honestly, when it comes to something like this. It is much more difficult to get into Vet school and those very clever individuals who are interested in public health matters, virology, etc, often start off in vet school because they must understand the diversity of disease within all the different species (far more complex than in just our species, if that makes sense) to understand how viruses spread around the world, etc.
I haven't pulled that up but I'd imagine that individual went on to do additional PhD work within public health or something relevant.
Not liking that line about advantages outweighing risks. Don't think so..
ETA: Yeah, look, he's sufficiently qualifed with following phd(s?), even if I don't like what it says:
