Report: Mask Mandates Correlate With GREATER COVID Spread/Death

Perhaps a clue is that the politicians who insist on instituting mask mandates are shown, repeatedly, to not be too fond of actually wearing masks themselves. But whether they know better or just believe they are better, here’s reality: At best, mask mandates do nothing to reduce society-level coronavirus spread.

 

At worst, they lead to greater COVID-19 transmission and death.

 

The latest case in point is Oregon, where a month ago Democrat governor Kate 

Brown instituted a totalitarian mask mandate. As National Review reports:

 

On August 24, Oregon governor Kate Brown instated a state masking requirement that requires everyone five years and older, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask, face covering, or face shield in outdoor spaces if they are less than six feet apart from individuals not in their household.

“Cases and hospitalizations are at a record high,” said Governor Brown. “Masks are a quick and simple tool we can immediately deploy to protect ourselves and our families, and quickly help stop further spread of COVID-19.”

On August 24, Oregon had 49,889 active cases of COVID-19. As of yesterday [Sept. 21], Oregon had 86,623 active cases of COVID-19 — an increase of 73 percent from the day the governor announced the outdoor mask requirement. Keep in mind, cases merely mean positive tests; an active case does not necessarily mean that person is significantly ill.

 

This is striking given that Oregon is one of our less densely populated states. Of course, correlation isn’t causation, and a mask advocate could argue that the numbers would be even worse without the mandate. Yet Oregon isn’t alone in exhibiting this phenomenon. Just consider the following tweets compiled by commentator Andrea Widburg.

  1. This has been known for seventy years and our stupid media pretends cotton was just discovered last year. The masks give a false sense of protection thus allowing people to spread it. They think they are protecting others so they take more risk. They go shopping while symptomatic. They sit in the aisles of stores and chat. They don’t handle them properly and get lazy about washing them. And if you catch covid and the respiratory virus is weakening your lungs, the bacteria on the masks now have an entry point to make you really sick. I read a stat that bacteria infection was one of the leading causes of Covid deaths. And here they are putting incubators on their faces.

  2. Why are these idiots constantly being tested?
    The only reason to be tested is if you have MAJOR symptoms, sniffles don’t count. We can essentially stop the whole pandemic by returning to normal and stopping the massive testing.
    The flu has essentially disappeared, COVID has taken it’s place. That should be your first clue that they’re manipulating the numbers and the sheeple

  3. Stupid people commit suicide every day. So it is with these people who OBAY such murderous mandates from what appears to be ‘non-human’ caricatures of real people. Don’t think so? Would a ‘human being’ worth the title GLEEFULLY murder you and your children by forcing ‘you’ to kill yourself AND your own children???

  4. Masks in schools are particularly gross. No other word for it. I brought a group of 20 kids back in from a 95 degree PE time and 95% of them had been wearing their mostly cloth masks since they got to school. Sweating, breathing, touching them with dirty hands, all day long. In the pocket or around a sweaty neck for lunch. If they aren’t sick, they will get sick with maybe a virus but also bacterial infection, something from a fungus, or even parasites. This is Governor Gruesome’s stupid idea. Although I can get in trouble, I did not bother them in class about pulling the masks up like the other teachers do. That’s inhumane.

  5. Mandating masks and then vaccines are only a step or placeholder for the next solution for COVID-22 which wont go ever away. The family of Corona viruses are endemic.
    THINK seasonal FLU Shots

    Who benefits and has reaped profits from a so-called permanent virus crisis?
    NEXT step -COVID QR code vaccine pass or ID MARK tattoo. Billy Gates of hell and company.
    .
    We have dishonest corporate governance at all levels (ie…local state, fed and crony corporativist business interest)

    As soon as people AWAKE up and STAND against bad science technocratic systems (think large medical groups) we can have change.

    THINK- more than one solution for a virus. Please-we are not just a vaccination away…please speak w/ honest medical professionals!
    HCQ and Ivermectin are effective!
    LOOK at INDIA! AFRICA SOUTH AMERICA
    What is going on there?

    TPTB elites are working at tearing down local and regional rule for a very centralized socialist and globalism….history shows us more concentrated power is the road to tyranny, poverty, and much suffering.
