    The researchers found that daily temperature and symptom checks did not detect infections.
    That few infected recruits had symptoms before diagnosis;
    That transmission occurred despite implementing many best-practice public health measures (like mask-wearing, social distancing and regular handwashing).


    Masks don't work! PERIOD!

    From that NEJM article:

    "Our study showed that in a group of predominantly young male military recruits, approximately 2% became positive for SARS-CoV-2, as determined by qPCR assay, during a 2-week, strictly enforced quarantine."

    According to that study masks are not 100% effective. They are only 98% effective. Another example of Republicans propaganda.

    NYT: Study Finds That Masks Do Not Protect Wearers


    A new study from Danish researchers found that mask-wearers were not protected from becoming infected by the novel coronavirus more than their mask-less counterparts, contradicting the mainstream consensus, including that of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    The study was comprised of 4,862 total participants; about half were directed to wear masks in public, and the other half were told not to.


    Our study gives an indication of how much you gain from wearing a mask,” said lead author of the study Dr. Henning Bundgaard. “Not a lot.”
    Dr. Christine Laine, Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Internal Medicine, noted that study underscores that masks “are not a magic bullet.”

    More propaganda.

    Lead Researcher Behind Controversial Danish Study Says You Should Still Wear A Mask

    Finding one study that shows masks aren't as effective is an exception. The vast majority of studies show masks are effective. The consensus is masks work.

    From the NEJM:

    "Since these policies (along with preventive measures of mask use, social distancing to the extent possible, small-group cohorting, strict hand hygiene, and regular cleaning of common spaces) were put in place, the Navy has deployed multiple ships without sustaining another serious outbreak."
    "Members of the medical department, who wore personal protective equipment when evaluating crew members, had a somewhat lower attack rate (16.7% [8 cases among 48 personnel) than the overall crew, despite being at highest risk as a result of exposure to patients with Covid-19 in a small space."

    Democrats amuse me. They claim to be the party of science. But their top scientists (Peolsi, Shumer, Newsome, ect.) support mass protests by BLM and Antifa. Their follows blindly follow along. Moreover the top democrat scientists are routinely busted ignoring their own mandates. Again, their followers blindly keep following their mandates without nary criticism.

    STFU.

    Masks Work
    Try going on a Airplane
    Try going into your next service call without one.
    Try telling your boss your not wearing a mask when you service equipment.
    Next time your see a doctor tell him You don't believe in Masks.
    Next time you have surgery tell them you don't want them to wear masks or gloves.
    Macho Man!

    Wear your Mask!
