CDC says masks have no statistical impact on spread of Covid – will continue pushing masks


 

All smoke and mirrors. Keep wearing those rags folks. Here is the report with government word salad. So Dr. Fauci what is the bottom line?

The CDC recommends wearing masks after their study showed that related to COVID, the results of wearing masks were statistically the same as the results when not wearing masks.

During March 1–December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 (73.6%) of the 3,142 U.S. counties. Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease (p = 0.02) in daily COVID-19 case growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, and 1.8 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all) (Table 1) (Figure). Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease (p = 0.03) in daily COVID-19 death growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.0, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.9 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all). Daily case and death growth rates before implementation of mask mandates were not statistically different from the reference period.

The results of a CDC study at first appear to show that wearing masks help reduce the spread of COVID:

The results from before wearing masks were not statistically different than the period wearing masks – thus the CDC will continue recommending Americans wear masks???

 

Flashback to January 21, 2021 with Fauci, full of himself, telling us that  science rules.

    Wear your mask and don’t follow the science in this case – it’s obviously wrong.

    I think we all know, and this reaffirms, that this has nothing to do with keeping us safe and everything to do with controlling us and seeing how far they can push us.

    All the good comments above have sufficiently covered the topic. BTW, it’s also statistically proven that putting razor wire atop chain link fences further stops mosquitoes… and Libturds.

    In case anyone is interested here is what the state of NJ is doing to protect HS baseball players and coaches; for real:

    2021 COVID-19 Baseball Modifications
    More comprehensive “Guidelines & Protocols” for all spring sports will be distributed to all schools.

    Umpires

    Umpires are required to wear face coverings unless doing so would inhibit the official’s health or the official is engaged in high-intensity aerobic or anaerobic activities.

    Umpires with documented medical conditions that prevent the wearing of a face-covering may officiate. Schools shall not challenge that determination.

    Face covering shall be worn by all umpires between innings and socially distance from players.

    We will operate as normal regarding baseballs. Umpires may wear ball bags. The touching of baseballs shall be limited to receiving baseballs from the home team and handing the ball to the catcher when replacing a baseball that goes out of play.

    If the plate umpire is not comfortable with handling baseballs, then the home team will be responsible for all ball distribution.

    Visiting teams may also want to bring their own balls, in that case, each team that is on defense will be responsible for the balls.

    It is strongly recommended that umpires carry a travel-size hand sanitizer with them and periodically use it after touching a baseball.

    Umpires shall not pick up a bat on the field of play.

    Dugout / Bench Areas

    Players and Coaches within the dugout/bench area shall wear masks and maintain social distancing.

    Each team may extend the dugout/bench area away from home plate to achieve maximum social distancing. Home Team shall provide folding chairs for visitors to use if needed.

    Field of Play

    All school personnel must maintain a high level of awareness of possible COVID-19 exposure throughout all phases of the game.

    Coaches are required to wear face coverings unless doing so would inhibit the coach’s health.

    Students are required to wear face coverings unless doing so would inhibit the student’s health or the student is engaged in high-intensity aerobic or anaerobic activities.

    Schools must ensure social distancing practices are maintained to the maximum extent practicable during the game.

    Team benches must be limited to essential personnel. Coaches must limit the number of players at each game.

    Post-game handshakes and celebrations are prohibited.

    Each team shall use their own rosin bag. No sharing of a rosin bag shall be permitted.

    Pre-game Meeting

    Participants shall be limited to 1 Coach and 1 Captain that are socially distanced.

    Only the Umpire-in-Chief shall be present.

    Face coverings shall be worn by all participants.

    Participants shall not shake hands.

    The Umpire-in-Chief shall secure both teams’ lineup cards prior to the meeting. UIC shall present each team’s lineup card to Head Coach and require a coach to confirm that the lineup card is correct before accepting.

    Charged Conferences

    The coach must wear a mask. Defensive player(s) shall put on the face-covering when attending and socially distance.

    During an offensive conference, the player(s) and coach shall wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.

    After the Game

    It is strongly recommended that umpires clean all equipment with a sanitizer after each game.

    Thank you

        Mustang,
        After calling a game behind the plate I’ll run under my backyard lawn sprinkler with my hand sanitizer and only my protective cup on. If it’s raining even better yet.

    Everyone here “gets it.” Going back in history, we can say with certainty that whatever disaster befell our country, it was either caused or made worse by our inept government. A list of government failures would be long; its successes much shorter, but if there is one thing the government excels at, it is convincing us that what we think actually matters, and the proof of this is that we, the sheeple, continue sending the same crap-for-brains people to Washington to lord their “wisdom” over us. I do not recall — ever — any apology or promise to do better by any elected or appointed official of any federal, state, or local politician. So I highly concur with the Bunkerville community’s comments and will add only this: China has learned an important lesson about how to destroy the US without ever having to fire a single shot. The influenza of 1918-1920 killed tens of millions of people worldwide; our question should be, “What else are the Chinese cooking up inside their labs?” The WuFlu, as I understand it, came from a project involving HIV. Who knows? But just suppose … nah, never mind. We aren’t up to it anyway.

    Let’s all relax. Should a serious threat to Harris arise in 2024 miraculously masks will go away along with the Covid threat unless of course a new Chicom virus is needed to facilitate the left in Washington consolidating all control in every facet of our lives,

    Note:
    Yesterday while driving for Uber in Paterson, NJ, picked up a Latino with his young son. He said he’s a school bus driver and also drives for Uber on weekends but yesterday his wife needed their car. We were talking about the price of gas which is either at $3.00 p/gal or on the cusp at some stations, reflecting how nearly doubling the price here in NJ since the election has an impact on drivers especially for those who drive for their primary source of income. But he said its ok because Biden is raising the minimum wage for his school bus driving job to $15 p/hr. Hard to argue with that logic since then he can better afford to pay $3.00 p/gal when driving for Uber. Viva Zapata!!!!!!

        If I were a democrat politician I would entertain legislation for gasoline cards for the immigrant “community” so they could afford to drive to the Super Mercado at the taxpayers expense.

      Peter, you let one escape without asking, “How much money would you make, at $15/hour if all the schools in Paterson remained closed for a year?” I’m guessing that with people like that school bus driver determining the future of our country, Biden/Harris will be with us at least for another seven years. Personally, I can’t wait for the autonomous city buses to take to the streets. That should be fun to watch.

        What I find curious is that with the public schools closed there are adult crossing guards replete with reflective safety vests in many towns, including mine, with no school children to cross. If this provides a needed income for these retired and lower income people I don’t mind as long as they don’t park their Mercedes and Lexus’ too near their appointed corners where we can see them. Now then empty school buses driving around adding to the already overcrowded highways and byways, that’s another issue.

    I woke this morning to news that a riot composed mostly of women erupted when a woman challenged another woman who was not wearing a mask. This happened in a retail store in Scottsdale, AZ. No one was seriously hurt but here is the rub. Wuhan Madness seems to be the real public health crisis. Infection and death rates (grossly inflated) are plummeting. But the ill effects of insane public policy are rising. We know scientifically that masks have marginal utility in virus control. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result each time equates to madness. This particular brand of mass hysteria, Wuhan Madness is becoming the real public heath crisis.

      Yes. Sadly there are some masks that do offer some degree of protection- N95 masks but the public has little access. What people are wearing has zero and only can possibly spread other diseases. The mask syndrome almost equals Trump derangement syndome.

        Uncharacteristically for me at the very beginning of the mask season last March I bought on line two 10 mask packages of N95 masks for peanuts (Peanuts is not my dog, cat or monkey, its slang for cheap) only to find I was allergic to the N95 mask. Thankfully my 94 year old mother in law, a seamstress all her adult life, came to the rescue. While we no longer have sheets and pillowcases in or home we do have a plethora (don’t get to use that word very often)t of Covid masks.

        Don’t you love how our language has been hijacked? I remember a Baptist preacher in West Texas in the early 1970’s using “gay” as it once had been meant (happy, frivolous) and then his having to backtrack and re-define his sentence.

      Alarmed as I was at the number of homeless/maskless people who are begging for coinage along the exit ramps, I started a petition to have all of them locked up as health hazards to our communities. I obtained all of two signatures before realizing that these dangerous people would only be released back into society or placed in homes for the elderly because they pose a health hazard to prison inmates.

      It was one of those dark conversations we all have with our spouses … and I said to mine, “Honey when I go, I want to be cremated.” My wife is nothing if not efficient. She got me an appointment for next week.

        $30 billion is hard to get your head around. I would be happy with the simple interest of that amount for one scrawny year. What would that be? I figure around $32,000/day. Yeah, I could do that.
