Mission Creep?

Rochelle Walensky-CDC Director---"Masks can help reduce your chance of #COVID19 infection by more than 80%. Masks also help protect from other illnesses like common cold and flu. Wearing a mask-along w/getting vaccinated-are important steps to stay healthy. #WeCanDoThis @HHSgovvaccines.gov

So now we should consider staying masked up to prevent the common cold and flu. No doctor. No.

The messaging out of the CDC is not a winning one to encourage folks to vaccinate.

I think real story is we all get sick and what is the real risk. How sick? Not very for 99% of us. We should live our lives.

An 80% effective mask is useless. Been proven many times.***

Umm...no.

Umm ... yes, really. Proven many times. In simple terms.

Use an 80% condom. Tell me where to send the baby gift.

That's what a dozen or so very expensive, randomized tests have shown about masks. Lots of charts and grafts, and letters like 'R' and 'n'. PhD's involved and everything. Very interesting. And I'll send you $1000 for every RCT that showed masks materially effect the spread of a virus in a population, and you send me $1000 for every one that shows they don't. You're down about $12,000. Those have to be done because some people don't believe the simple math. A small probability x many events = outcome approaching 1. A relatively large probability, say, 20%, and you're toast in a hurry, like, in 5.

Pink or blue?

No. Not really, but would you not agree the messaging is poor? If one despite being vaccinated has to continue wearing a mask for the indefinite future, is that a motivation for the unvaccinated to take the vaccine? I think not. What I would like to know is some estimate from the CDC, Fauci, et al when they feel masking will no longer be recommended? What is the number of acceptable deaths from COVID?

can't understand the nuances of the truth, so let's just give a bottom line sound bite and tell them what to do."

Some cultures will fall in line. Ours won't. At least for now.
