Does this mean the CDC is saying that face masks did not work to prevent the spread of Covid-19 as cases exploded since then?
Despite President Trump’s very public resistance to mask-wearing for much of this year, a newly released survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that a vast majority of Americans of all ages have been wearing face coverings since April.
COVIDcast from CMU estimates 90% in my state since September, reaching 95% in November.
I’m so old, I remember last August when the CDC Director said if just 95% of Americans wore face masks, this pandemic would over with in weeks.
We’ve now done the experiment – and cases exploded in number, an order of magnitude greater in some cases.
FYI I am heretic for asking why face masks are not working. As best I can tell, it is apparently against local, state and Federal law to note this discrepancy, will get me suspended on Twitter and Facebook, and canceled everywhere else.
Heh – this “fact check” about whether face masks work or not seems to prove the opposite of the headline … read the whole thing.
