For most of this pandemic, you’ve been told to mask up because masking will protect you and others from getting COVID.
But suddenly the ball game has changed. New studies show that the commonly worn cloth masks aren’t very effective, and experts are saying you need to ditch them.
“We want to make sure that it is not a cloth mask. A cloth mask does not offer protection,” says Asha Shajahan of the Mayo Clinic.
The Mayo Clinic recently conducted a study that found that cloth masks had a negligible impact on COVID transmission in villages in India–about 5%.
So, cloth masks don’t work? Who knew? If you’re a regular reader at PJ Media, you did. Because we and others in conservative media have been pointing this out for nearly two years–even at the risk of being censored. Chances are very good that those who don’t follow conservative media are unaware that mask mandates haven’t worked or that studies have shown that masks aren’t effective at protecting you from COVID. Heck, even Dr. Fauci admitted it. In fact, anyone who dared question the efficacy of masks risked being banned from Facebook.
But we weren’t afraid to point this out to you. Last summer, researchers from the University of Waterloo in Canada found that most cloth masks and the popular blue surgical masks are only 10% effective since they don’t adequately cover the wearer’s mouth. This bombshell study should have ended useless mask mandates. But it didn’t. The mainstream media and big tech have kept this information from the public. We haven’t. This is why we need your support more than ever.
