@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Let’s unpack this. 1. There is no evidence AT ALL after over a year that masks lessen the spread. Mask-mandated locations have done no better than mask-free regions? Feel free to show proof that they’ve actually lessened the transmission. 2. Wearing masks has several negatives.
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Figure 1. “Mask mandates and use are not associated with slower state-level COVID-19 spread during COVID- 19 growth surges.“ medrxiv.org/content/10.110…
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Figure 3. Fauci email stating masks don’t work as the virus is small enough to pass through the material.
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Figure 4 (and this is one I REALLY recommend you read). ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville But just in case you don’t these two bits are pretty good.
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Would you like me to continue and show you the studies that show the detrimental effects of wearing a mask?
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville Summary. A lot of scientific consensus that masks don’t work at all in preventing viral transmission. There is however a LOT of political consensus that they DO. I’m a scientist so I prefer scientific evidence. Please read all those studies. :)
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville There are a lot more studies I can link you if you’re not satisfied but please try to read those. That’s just a short list. If masks worked we’d have had much less transmission than we have had.
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville However sadly I suspect this won’t change your opinion. That’s the thing about mask-proponents. It’s “I believe they work so you’re wrong and no amount of evidence can change my opinion” versus “here is actual proof that unfortunately they don’t do anything for transmission”
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville @threadreaderapp unroll please. I can’t be bothered to type all this out again.
@Danger__Dean @ChrisThompson43 @JamesMelville @Danger__Dean have you had a chance to read through this yet?
