This is irony at its finest. The United States attorney general used twitter to tell the public to NOT use face masks to protect against the coronavirus because they don’t work, they only work for health care workers. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering a recommendation that people wear masks when in public.
We all remember this:
Surgeon General DEMANDS: “Stop Buying Face Masks!”
Jerome Adams tweet said it all:
Chinese Doctors BEG For Face Masks Amid Coronavirus’ Continued Spread
We were told that face masks weren’t effective at preventing a coronavirus infection unless we are a healthcare worker, but now the CDC is saying otherwise. There’s still no consensus (meaning someone from the government hasn’t made a decision yet) on whether widespread use of facial coverings would make a significant difference, and some infectious disease experts worry that masks could lull people into a false sense of security and make them less disciplined about social distancing, according to a report by The Washington Post.
But studies done by doctors in the medical field have shown properly fitting N95 face masks to be about 80% effective.
Will A Face Mask REALLY Protect You From The Coronavirus?
They are certainly better than nothing and could be used to get people back in public and the economy on a roll again. It’s an “ongoing discussion” however, and nothing has been finalized. The official, who asked to remain anonymous, said the new guidance would make clear that the general public should not use medical masks — including surgical and N95 masks — that are in desperately short supply and needed by health-care workers. So once again, the guidelines would be to “cover your face” not use a respirator that could actually stand a chance at protecting you.
At the daily White House briefing Monday, President Trump was asked if everyone should wear nonmedical fabric masks. “That’s certainly something we could discuss,” Trump said, adding, “it could be something like that for a limited period of time.”
It seems like the government can’t make up their mind on just about anything. But the one thing they have been doing is expanding their power and getting the docile population in a constant state of fear.
And where are we going to get them from? The government confiscated everything. And the trash from China is too faulty to be used.
Oh, CA Rebel, turn off the lamestream news.
That’s such an easy question to field, please allow me.
Needle, meet thread, meet fabric. Now….. A mask!
I was saying this since day 1 runs on the masks.
Are you telling me in this whole country, nobody remembers how to sew or form a mesh fiber paper product into a mask?
Wash, re use, etc. My neighbor, my wifes co worker, patients at hospitals. Everyone with know how and capability is making home made masks and freely giving them out right now.
My favorite is the 3m n-95 Plus, that one is simply the best.
Great! Now maybe they will tell us where the public can still buy one. Nice to be ahead of the curve, unfortunate that those who actually trust in their govt. got screwed again. Buy gold. We’re polishing the brass on the Titanic.
Tell the corrupt CDC to kiss our A$$. Its time to let the virus do its job and cull the fat useless eater herds of imbeciles across the planet.
Cull the old too, they are wasting our future Social Security, as they sit and drool all day watching reruns of wheel of fortune.
I have no compassion for the unprepared. You were warned for decades. Now you pay.
they dont want you to wear masks cus they want you to end up in the icu on a vent. they will then help those they deem worthy. the rest they let die. they probably have your voting history to help them decide if your worth saving.
where are folks gonna get masks when there is a shortage. this is what i mean about gov agencies. they couldnt manage a hotdog cart.
CDC is more screwes up than Hogan’s Goat. The CDC’s pronouncement that wearing masks in public does NOT prevent infection DEFIES LOGIC, especially in the face of their recommendation that EMT, ER and ICU workers wear masks whenever a respiratory infection case is suspected.
The real reason they issued the previous recommendation is because a lot of people in the USA were buying them and drying up the hospital supply chain for replacements.
Even the CDC, just like all the rest of the Fed .gov agencies, think we’re stupid.
Hell, I tried to buy N95s on 20-Jan. There were none to be had at Home Despot, Lowes, or any pharmacy in the area where I live.
I have been using 3% hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and faruv light to disinfect my homemade mask since day one.
Then some johnny come lately comes along and steals my thunder. lol
If masks didn’t work, doctors wouldn’t wear them. Is everyone too stupid to figure that out?
Blacks and Muslims believe they are immune to coronavirus. Encourage this belief. They can be found all over the internet dancing over the idea old white people are dying in droves.
Ask for them to be put on the frontline in the pandemic since they are “immune”.
Have compassion on people and get off the hate train. This corona virus fiasco is only the beginning. The Bible teaches us that 1/3rd of the population of the earth will die in these end times from disease, famine, pestilence and war. That’s 2 BILLION dead people, and its very possible that ALL of us here will be among them. SO lets get off the hate train and start being good to people. Be kind, friendly, forgiving and if you want to live in peace beyond this human life, accept Yahusha (“Jesus”) as your Lord and follow Him.
I am perfectly calm and prefer to remain so. I have no intention of harming myself, nor others, nor their property.
But, I believe in a Freudian “death drive”.
In charismatic terms, if you like.
Meh, fook that. I want 6 billion to die. There has to be at least that many useless eaters on the planet. Anyone with an IQ under 110 should be gone. Sorry pal….
Well, the government has all the masks, so if they want us to wear them they will have to set up distribution centers where folks can actually get one, because there are none to be had in the stores or via the Internet.
while the Federal Government goes back and forth contradicting themselves and letting people die unnecessarily, the 2 Navy hospital ships sit nearly empty of patients !
The Navy thinks it a good idea to fire a respected Captain for trying to save his sailors but won’t do a thing about the inept person in charge of the hospital ships. True story ! The ships are equipped and staffed to accommodate 1,000 patients each but currently have less than 2 dozen patients each due to “red tape”. Those relying on the feds are DOOMED !
