Americans are wearing masks. They're just not working.
For God's sake can we please stop with the "masks don't work crap"! Of course they work. Are they perfect? No. Better than nothing? Yes! If you think coughing or sneezing into you sleeve is a good idea then the mask is a good idea too. Use your logic please.
If you get the disease it is probably from your HANDS touching your face. Damn you people are stupid and believe anything to justify being a baby and not wearing a mask. I'm so tired of this crap. Use common sense people.
This is fantastic Jordan and timely as well. Someone pointed out to me that if you go to the CDC's website, there's a PDF that is not easy to find or read for most people, but it has this information buried in it. They DO NOT want anyone to know this. They do not want to report it nor do they want to admit that universal mask-wearing has been a disaster. The fact is, they focus on "respiratory particles" being caught by the mask which they say can slow the spread of the virus. Oddly enough, this is only partially true. When you are wearing said mask, they get damp and allow more to get through the rather large porous material. Secondarily, they are not meant to slow any virus spread. Lastly, if you are breathing in bacteria and viruses then they sit on the fibers of a mask and then you talk to people through them, and in many cases you talk louder and get closer so someone can hear you; thus you are expelling out all those viruses and bacteria in a spewing fashion. Great huh?
I honestly would not be surprised if people are getting sick from wearing their masks too long and that's being diagnosed as "COVID" to keep the "case" numbers up.
Excellent as usual, Jordan! Im a subscriber now, it's great to be able to support true journalism even through my own slender means.
Hey - youcantcurestupid - Studies have shown the likelihood of transmission due touching things is actually spreading the disease. It is spread via DROPLET! . . . This is the CDC reporting. . . . So when the CDC said wear masks w/ no data you agree but when it says the data is showing otherwise now you don't believe them. . . . .
Did you know the average cloth mask does not protect against particles the size of COVID? That doesn't matter either though - this is from someone who still wears a mask bc I am told to. . .
You are right - You can't cure stupid. . . . .
My thought is, WHO THE FLIP CARES!! Why is everyone in a panic over virus's that were discovered in humans in 1965? They actually dated "coronaviruses" with a molecular clock as far back as 10,000 years. This virus has a 99.8% survival rate and the mask nuts act like its the end of the world. I work in a hospital in a clinical setting and have for the last 22 years and I only wear a mask when i'm in surgery. I have been in rooms with Covid positive patients with no PPE on "mostly by accident" and have never that I know of caught the virus and none of my family "wife and four kids" has caught anything. The only thing we all have in common is non of us wears a mask. Your body is designed to ingest bacteria and viruses in the environment all the time. Your immune system will attack those viruses creating antibodies which makes your immune system stronger. What the "political science" doesnt want to say is that by wearing a mask all the time you actually weaken your immune system by not allowing in the bacteria and viruses you need to keep your immune system strong. Then, when you do come in contact with a virus like Covid or the flu or anything actually, your immune system is compromised and you have a harder time fighting it off. It's just crazy to me how people just fall in line like sheep being led to slaughter. Dictators throughout history have been correct when saying "If people hear something enough, they will believe it". What's going on in our country right now is proof of that. Local governments have illegally shut down your businesses, taken away your right to make a living and feed your family, shut down our churches tried to force us to comply with mandates that effect our health and everyone just goes with it. They even tell us that even though we feel great, have absolutely no symptoms "Your Still Sick" and people just believe it. This, in my opinion is all about control NOT protecting us or others. The government, local or federal has never cared about what is best for the people. They care about money and power and if you do your research deep enough you will always find the money and power behind their actions.
How stupid are these people in comment section. Can’t even distinguish between correlation and causation? Control group(not sick) have 10% not frequently wearing mask. It’s 15% not frequently wearing mask in the sick group. The risk is higher if you don’t wear masks. I don’t think any of you retards have graduated from a legit college.
Why are we so worried (to the point of ruining our economy, instilling fear into our children, increasing isolation, drug use, child abuse, etc.) about a virus with a 98% survival rate? Even if you are over 65, the survival rate is over 95%. The average age of death in the US is 78. The average age of the dead from Covid? 78. Whether masks work or not, the virus just isn't dangerous enough to permanently alter, for the worse, our entire way of life.
Oxygen Deprivation Diaper (ODD)
It's about time someone is doing an actual story and not following the crowd of sheep !! I have argued so many of these points for several months. I'm happy to read this !
Surgeons wear sterile clothes, gowns, hairnets, booties, gloves, mask, visor, safety glasses, and the equipment and room are sterilized between uses, the air is filtered and enriched with oxygen, the patients are covered except the wound, which is sterilized. Despite all these precautions, infections are not eliminated not even bacterial infections, which are far larger and easier to trap.
Yep, always wore a mask, hospitalized right after Christmas with pneumonia caused by COVID-19. Better now, but mask did nothing.
Breaking news. The war between mask wearers and non-mask wearers just broke out. 23,000 killed so far with the gun of choice AK47. Covid deaths are not reported anymore.
WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE FLU LAST YEAR....AND TUBERCULOSIS THE YEAR PRIOR (1.5MM DEATHS?). THIS IS A TRAVESTY. Recovery from this "virus" is 97%+. Is death by illness comfortable... NO. But, death is imminent and a guarantee of life. Stop running in FEAR.
You might be amused to know that I shared this on FB, which immediately put a "fact-check" overlay on it, saying there's no evidence that mask-wearing contributes to an increased risk of catching the virus. Which, of course, is not what your article says at all. They're just making stuff up now to make sure people don't encounter any narrative but their own.
This comments section reads like communist propaganda. The propaganda is working and people are very brainwashed or living in fear.
Americans were taught the wrong germ theory first of all. A virus from my body can’t do anything inside another’s body without the antibodies to tell it what to do because virus cell don’t have a nucleus (brain of a cell). Furthermore covid19 virus doesn’t hang out in your saliva, it’s too weak, neither do your antibodies.
So masks are pointless, and you’d catch covid19 from a surface and touch your face before air transmission. Bottomline, masks hinder your health to more easily get covid19.
