I have no idea if the Delta variant is worse, spreading faster or if there is any evidence that masks would have impact.
I do know that public health experts have cried wolf so many times now – scaring us about “super spreader events” that had no impact, predicting “Surges upon surges” that did not happen, predicting “Holiday surges” that did not happen and scaring us about past variants that did nothing – that I no longer believe one word coming from public health or epidemiology.
Not. One. Word.
My lack of trust in their work and messaging has spread to other fields of “Science”. As soon as I see “New study says…” or “Trust the science” that a load of bull shit is incoming at high speed.
The damage these quacks have done is immense and they seem oblivious to the problem.
