A debunking thread of common antimasking talking points:

Fauci, hazmat, "every doctor I know". Image
Fauci said masks don't work in February 2020, in an email?

Actually, he indicated that masks as source control do work.

"Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected..."

So, if you are going to cite this? Image
Welcome to #Masks4All. If we are all wearing masks, then each of us is wearing a mask to control the release of aerosols in the environment.

How many hours a week do you want to advocate for #Masks4All, @paluka ?

In regards to protecting myself wearing a mask - what do you

The lies 2020:

Don’t Panic, we go for #herdimmunity, #children can’t spread it and won’t be harmed

What was really
And use #schools as a tap for controlled spread. No transparency, no testing no mask

Lets spread the lie that mask simply don’t work

Here #polarisation starts driven by misinformation and intransparancy by your government. Everybody could see that the measures were nog in line with urgency.

What were they hiding? Why no #zerorisk #zerocovid with borders closed. It could be done

2020: wait we know this will
Lead to many many deaths but the #vaccin is almost here, working hard, we know the #SPIKE is a big thing, hold on #Hopium being built.

Meanwhile lets keep up the lie of children not important to monitor😢 we know from SARS they build less #antibodies lets presume they just not

“…the majority of people in the community did not want to be told what to do…”

Yup. I don’t like to be told what to do either, but sometimes, it’s necessary…

Some examples when risks require regulations, laws or mandates to manage effectively.

Serious but uncommon risks.
Unintuitive or hidden risks.
Risk to others, not self.
Risks that occur a long time after an action is taken.
Risk is new or has changed.
Risk may be taken for financial or other gain, setting up traps for others.


We’ve always needed some limitations on the risks we take, otherwise bridges would fall down, people would still be windscreen pizza after an accident cos no seatbelt…

The more I think about airlines abruptly allowing mask removal w/o warning—mid-flight for many—the angrier I get. People who are #immunocompromised had no choice not to travel or to upgrade their protection at that point. Some will go on to die. As an oncologist, I am enraged.
If you haven’t had #cancer or been a caregiver to someone with it, you don’t know how much people endure. I’m a breast oncologist. Our patients have breasts amputated, lose their fertility, go bald, risk nerve damage, infection, & more from chemo, because they want to live.
The fact that the airlines made a corporate decision to drop masks w/o warning—any airline could’ve chosen to give crew/passengers hrs or days of notice—disgusts me. For an industry that prides itself on safety, this is a fail.

🔊Heads up, at 11am PST we'll look at the new BA.2 #Covid variant, which now accounts for more than 50% of new infections in New York/New England, and almost 35% in California. Join us here @EthnicMediaSvc or via FB @LcacNews @StanfordChild
Welcome to today's briefing, "The BA.2 #Variant Gains Ground: Are We Heading Back to the Future?"
You can follow the discussion on Twitter @EthnicMediaSvc or via FB Live
A question from our moderator @sunita37 on how the BA.2 #variant emerged. "BA.2 is similar to #omicron that shares a common ancestor with #omicron but it is an ancestor that we do not know," says @DrBenNeuman

@ETFOeducators : @fordnation lifted the #MaskMandates in schools too soon.

Also ETFO: We're going to have an in-person event in the middle of the 6th wave where masks are recommended but NOT REQUIRED. 1/

#CovidIsNotOver @DisruptingEtfo #onted
@ETFOeducators may as well just tell the public they were lying when they said schools weren't safe. They just destroyed their credibility by holding an event that doesn't exceed the safety protocol of @fordnation which they keep saying is too low. 2/
Best of luck to Educators trying to expose health & safety issues in schools when their own union doesn't behave as though they believe that crowded, indoor, unmasked spaces are a problem during a pandemic.

@MayorFrey signed Emergency Regulation 2022-7 immediately lifting the City’s mask requirement established in Emergency Regulation No. 2022-1, which has been in place since January 5, 2022. #Minneapolis
Yet,in local "news"articles it states "The City of Minneapolis will continue to uphold mask mandates for City employees and City-managed buildings. Visitors and employees in City-managed buildings will still be "required" to wear a mask.
Exactly what are "City Managed Buildings" enforcing?
Emergency Regulation 2022-1 is hereby rescinded and has no continuing applicability or effect!

This is the face of why we need to continue masking in schools. When we talk about the most vulnerable, the immunocompromised, Arri is one of these kids. She has asthma. Everytime she is exposed to a cold or respiratory virus, this is her reality. #MaskMandates #CovidIsNotOver
Arri's mom spoke to us about getting a call from school this week that EMS was on the way because her oxygen sats were <90%. "This is what it’s like from normal day to day activity. Every time she gets a cold we end up in the ER. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone or their kid."
"With that said if I see one more post complaining about masks being required somewhere, or how happy someone is because there poor child can finally take the mask off at school because it’s been so horrible wearing one….I’m going to lose my shit."

The case for #fraud charges in #Ontario

The following 🧵will attempt to establish that @fordnation & members of his cabinet including, but not limited to, @celliottability WILLFULLY & KNOWINGLY "by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means" defrauded the public AND...

...significantly "affecting public markets" via those INTENTIONAL fraudulent actions.

Further, as #Canada 's most populous province by a significant margin - #Ontario 's COVID-19 data also makes up a significant portion of the national data on cases, hospitalizations, etc.

#Ontario 's COVID-19 data therefore not only has a significant impact on the markets within the province, but nationally AND internationally to the degree of Canada's impact on trade & international markets.

#Vaccines are clearly NOT the promised "way out".
They haven't just moved those goal posts around the field - but to different fields all together!

#Lockdowns, shutdowns, school closures & other restrictions are NOT the way out.

#Masks are clearly NOT the way out.

1/... Image
What IS our "way out" is for @fordnation , @celliottability & @JustinTrudeau to show:

1) HUMILITY - to admit that they have made mistakes...not just at the beginning, but each step of the way...from repeated #Lockdowns , #shortcutvaccines , #VaccineMandates ,...

... #VaccinePassports , #MaskMandates , capacity limits, plexiglass barriers, etc. - NONE of which has the scientific merit to meet the threshold of a "reasonable limits" on the freedoms of those in #Ontario & #Canada - as they can NOT be "demonstrably justified".

Imagine if...
1) ... @fordnation or @JustinTrudeau would have NOT accepted a #shortcutvaccine that was quicker to make, but provided INFERIOR immunity compared to traditional vaccines?

2) ... @fordnation & @JustinTrudeau had heeded the warnings that mass vaccination with this #shortcutvaccine would likely (& predictably) eventually provide the selective advantage for variants like #Omicron - which would lead to a #pandemicofthevaccinated ?

3) ... @fordnation & @JustinTrudeau had actually "followed the science" and NOT dictated #vaccinemanates prior to evaluation of real-world data?

Face masks do not work and are dangerous to health, a thread.

A May 2020 meta-study on pandemic influenza published by the US CDC found that face masks had no effect, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control.…
A Danish randomized controlled trial with 6000 participants, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in November 2020, found no statistically significant effect of high-quality medical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection in a community setting.…

Truthfully, I’m feeling more bitter than sweet entering this new year, especially when I compare it to how much hope I had entering 2021. I rounded out my last two weeks of the year on the general medicine wards, taking care of both COVID and non-COVID patients. My experiences:
-Escalating care for COVID patients but ALSO:
-Taking care of an unstable post arrest patient for 1.5 hours on the floor because there were no immediate ICU beds
-Self doing Q1H checks on patients not stable enough for the floor because there were no immediate ICU/SDU beds
-Unable to discharge patients swiftly with anything beyond a “home with no services” dispo because everything from STR to psych to delivery of equipment is back logged (seeing a theme here?)
-Extreme medication shortages, including blood. Only getting a HALF unit at a time…

1/ It wasn't a conspiracy theory, it was a #CrimeAgainstHumanity...and it came from Florida. 🧵

The GOP started lying about COVID when Trump called it a "hoax". THAT lie has cost hundreds of thousands of American🇺🇲 lives. It also made them and their friends billions $$.

2/ Trump said it was a hoax on Feb 27, 2020. Community transmission was being confirmed in multiple cities in the US. Around the world, case numbers were increasing exponentially everywhere one was found, and economic disruptions began roiling global financial markets.

3/ Four Republican Senators on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee who knew how bad the virus was, sold their stocks ahead of a market collapse which saw equity valuations plunge up to 40% worldwide in a matter of weeks.

The #Omicron variant has been found in Colorado, thx to thorough surveillance by @CDPHE.

Omicron cases now detected in three counties in the US. I live in one of them. Seems like a great*time to take both individual & collective responsibility to slow spread. How?

2/ Don't freak out. It's "not a time for panic, a time for caution." You have some indiv control over your COVID health risk:
✅ Vax + boost yourself & family
✅ Wear a tight-fitting, high-quality mask
When possible:
✅ Avoid crowded areas
✅ Move meetings outside
✅ Open windows
3/ Loads of resources on what high-quality mask to choose & the #COVIDisAirborne safety protocols that you can follow.
