People That Aren't Wearing Masks

 They are obviously listening to experts from earlier this year.  3/2/20 Business Insider:

  • US Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Monday, March 2 that wearing face masks could actually increase a person's risk of contracting COVID-19, echoing remarks he made on Saturday that called for people to "stop buying masks."
  • In a similar stance, Vice President Mike Pence, the head of the US coronavirus task force, said on Saturday, February 29 that the "average American" does not need to "go out and buy" a mask to protect themselves from coronavirus.
  • The reason was to reserve the supply for front line health care workers:

    • Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, says he doesn't regret advising Americans against wearing masks early on in the COVID-19 pandemic.
    • In an interview with CBS News anchor Norah O'Donnell published in InStyle, Fauci defended his credibility and decision-making in response to recent attempts from the White House to undermine and sideline him. 
    • "I don't regret anything I said then because in the context of the time in which I said it, it was correct. We were told in our task force meetings that we have a serious problem with the lack of PPEs," he said. 
The war on day 50 always looks different from the war on day 2, but unsurprisingly, people who are already skeptical of the official news media need little provocation to decide that those sources are lying when they see constantly changing recommendations and reports, along with Gov. French Laundry and San Francisco Mayor French Laundry ignoring their own Draconian rules.

  1. There's also the paper Dr. Fauci wrote showing that many (most?) of the deaths from the 1918 pandemic weren't from the flu but from bacterial pneumonia caused by wearing cloth masks.

    Strange how he doesn't seem to mention that these days...
