Responding to a new study by Massachusetts researchers, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, on Sunday said that three feet of social distancing may “indeed” be enough to safely reopen schools and said new guidance on the issue should be coming “soon” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Speaking on CNN’s State of the Union, Fauci said that the CDC is “very well aware that data are accumulating making it look more like three feet are okay under certain circumstances,” but he stopped short of issuing such guidance himself.
Instead, Fauci said he speaks to the CDC “every single day,” and that the agency is aware of the data and will be acting on it, adding that new guidelines to reopen schools will come from the CDC “within a reasonable period of time.”
AAPS The Facts About Masks
Conclusion: Wearing masks (other than N95) will not be effective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, whether worn as source control or as PPE.
N95s protect health care workers, but are not recommended for source control transmission.
Surgical masks are better than cloth but not very efficient at preventing emissions from infected patients. Cloth masks must be 3 layers, plus adding static electricity by rubbing with rubber glove.
The cloth that serves as the filtration for the mask is meant to trap particles being breathed in and out. But it also serves as a barrier to air movement because it forces the air to take the path of least resistance, resulting in the aerosols going in and out at the sides of the mask.
An August 2020 UCSF study suggested that the mask would decrease the absolute volume of the inoculum. (The concentrations of bacteria upstream and downstream of the test devices were measured with an aerodynamic size spectrometer)
Negative Effects of Masks
Air inside the mask is definitely stale. In filtering particles, the mask makes it harder to breathe.
CDC Fudged Numbers
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on August 23, 2020, “For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned.
For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19 , on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
In an interview with Eugenio Derbez on Instagram, Fauci admitted he doesn’t know if the vaccine actually stops the spread of corona in some people.
When asked how herd immunity will be achieved if the vaccines may not work, he said that’s why we’ve asked you to wear masks.
Fauci said the vaccine could turn people into carriers that could spread it.
So how will we reach herd immunity?
“ Specifically, the fraction of people who would need immunity to SARS-CoV-2 (either through vaccination or recovery from prior infection) to extinguish the spread of the virus was initially estimated to be 60% to 70%.
In recent weeks, Fauci had raised the percentage: from 70% to 75%, and then to 75%, 80%, and 85%”
The reason Fauci raised the threshold is because he read polls on how many DIDN’T want to take the vaccine.
“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Fauci said.
“Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.”
How do we TRUST a man who’s willing to distort the truth to get people to comply with only him while the media silences any doctor who disagrees?
