with all the calls for reintroduction of mask mandates, it seems like a good time to review mask efficacy evidence. a 🧵...
please share with mask evangelists.
the one in which masks were shown as 'statistically insignificant' in preventing covid transmission.

the one in which medical masks were shown to be very penetrable (not even counting leaks out sides) and cloth masks were actually shown to increase risk of transmission.

the one in which masks show no benefit in reducing transmission of colds.

the one in which N95's show no superiority over medical masks with regarding to reducing transmission.

the one in which masks take on the flu with no conclusive evidence of transmission reduction.

the one in which there is no evidence they work, but they SHOULD work.

the one in which the CDC show masks do not reduce flu transmission.

and then the WHO admitting there is no evidence masks reduce viral transmission but we should wear them in pandemics anyway.

*regard* to 🙄

based on 'very scientific' (anecdotal) evidence, i believe that if trump runs in 2024, he will lose. i saw DNC (biden) signs in 2020 in sub-suburbia on par w/ nothing historically, & even saw a few in very rural small towns, which is unprecedented.
a vote for trump has been so successfully stigmatized by the media that i think some people who would secretly like to vote for him (simply as an alternative to the new neoliberal fascists), won't do so, lest they have to admit it or lie in social circles.
there seems to be a decent number of right-leaning & independent never-trumpers already, but on top of all of this, the disaffected libs that are migrating to red states will turn them blue despite their disenchantment, giving us DNC power in perpetuity.

1/? a thread in hopes of speaking for a group of ppl (unrepresented in corporate media) who choose not to covid vaxx and therefore oppose all vaxx mandates:
2/? it's possible to see the data available, & even believe the data showing that covid infection poses a higher risk than a vaxx, & still choose not to vaxx. for some, esp young-ish healthy folks, we prefer organic likely risk over synthetic definite risk, scale notwithstanding.
3/? on top of this, the reality is that both the vaxx & pathogen will have unique side-effects for each person that we'll never be able to notice/prove. it's unique for each person so correlation/trends can't be established, & consequently these side-effects will go undiscovered.

@cariboumarkt @GovInslee 1/? did you even wonder why restaurants and agriculture were number 1&2 in cases? clearly not. because you only listen to the ‘news’ as opposed to following it with some critical thinking. both industries employ high numbers of immigrants living in small, crowded households.
@cariboumarkt @GovInslee 2/? on top of that, restaurants employ a young sample, they are tight knit and they’ve been socially gathering in each other’s homes this whole year. the spread is there and not a result of indoor dining.
@cariboumarkt @GovInslee 3/? the ‘studies’ of indoor dining spread amounted to surveys asking covid positives if they’d dined indoors at restaurants in the last 14 days. the other ‘studies’ used credit card data to show correlation of indoor dining and covid cases.

@naomirwolf pcr ‘testing’ issues finally hitting mainstream. it only took a year. here’s the main issue with pcr and ‘testing’ healthy ppl.
a thread...
@naomirwolf 2/ when you get a strep test, it is a culture test. if the live virus is there in any substantive way, it will grow in the lab after your swab. with pcr, they are just searching for strands at insanely high magnification.
@naomirwolf 3/ even the inventor of the pcr test, kary mullis, loathed the use of pcr as a ‘test.’ you can most always find endemic virus that you are looking for, dead nucleotides or alive, contagious or not.
