Facebook would not let me load this Web Article directly to my Facebook Feed (something wrong with that, don’t you think?) so I am giving it a shot this way to hopefully get this information to you.
Admittedly the CDC report is dated July 2020.
It takes a while to get such reports as this out to the public. I found a link to the CDC report at Newswars.
The Article I read is entitled
A study by the CDC examining adults infected with COVID-19 concluded the vast majority wore face masks or coverings frequently in the weeks leading up to becoming ill.
“In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of case-patients and 74% of control participants reported always using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public,” the report states.
. . .
In August, Sweden’s top epidemiologist said, “It is very dangerous to believe face masks would change the game when it comes to COVID-19.”
A University of New South Wales study dating back to 2015 found, “The widespread use of cloth masks by healthcare workers may actually put them at increased risk of respiratory illness and viral infections and their global use should be discouraged.”
Despite all of this, mandatory mask orders remain in effect throughout the world.
Combine this information with the fact that 90% of COVID-infected individuals are not contagious enough to transmit the illness and that 94% of those who died from the virus had 2-3 comorbidities and you’ll likely conclude it’s time to return to normal.
