Even some Democrats are beginning to wake up and look at the data on Covid.
And it’s bad for the Biden administration.
A top Democrat said four words that made Dr. Fauci go pale with horror.
Scientists have known from the beginning that Covid spreads as an aerosol and that surgical masks, even when worn correctly, don’t provide protection against aerosols.
Only N95 masks are able to stop Covid effectively.
Dr. Fauci knew this from the beginning.
He wrote in February 2020 that masks were not effective.
“Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection.
“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keeping out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you.”
“I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location.”
It’s hideous that Fauci lied to the American people for years.
Democrats don’t care about the science; they want authoritarian control over your life.
While long overdue, even Democrats are beginning to wake up to the fact that masks just do not work against Covid.
Connecticut Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont announced on Monday that he would not be extending an indoor mask mandate noting that a similar mandate in New York had not helped “curb the spike.”
During a Covid press conference a reporter asked the governor if he planned to reinstate a mask mandate to “curb the spike.”
“Well, it’s not curbing the spike down in New York City, which is probably ground zero,” Lamont answered.
“If I think about things, I certainly think about nursing homes and other congregate settings where I think the booster shot is probably the number one priority, to make sure everybody that can be boosted is boosted there. That would be my next priority,” he added.
In an interview on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Monday, the governor said, “The good news is while our infection rate is up a lot, we stabilized things at the hospital for now.”
A major reason that hospitalizations are down is because the Omicron variant is significantly less dangerous.
A British analysis of more than a million cases of both types in recent weeks found that the risk of hospitalization with the Omicron variant of coronavirus is about one-third that of the Delta variant and that despite a spike in cases, the number of people needing ventilation beds has also remained steady.
There’s no reason to panic and Covid fearmongering and regulations need to stop now.
