Biden promotes using masks again, says it’s ’best defense’ against Covid-19

Even as the US ramps up its coronavirus vaccine supplies for inoculating a majority of Americans the coming months, President Joe Biden said masks are ’the best defense’ against the virus. Biden said, ’The brutal truth is, it’s going to take months before we can the majority of Americans vaccinated,’ adding, ’In the next few months, masks, not vaccines, are the best defense against Covid-19.’

"In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946–July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks (RR 0.78, 95% CI 0.51–1.20; I2 = 30%, p = 0.25) (Figure 2). One study evaluated the use of masks among pilgrims from Australia during the Hajj pilgrimage and reported no major difference in the risk for laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infection in the control or mask group (33). Two studies in university settings assessed the effectiveness of face masks for primary protection by monitoring the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza among student hall residents for 5 months (9,10). The overall reduction in ILI or laboratory-confirmed influenza cases in the face mask group was not significant in either study" Someone should tell him the cdc already looked into that claim and determined it was a lie.😂🤣 http////wwwnc.cdc.g/v/e/d/artic/e//6/5/19-0994_article

I wish just once these politicians would promote taking vitamin D, exercise and eating healthy. If we could exert 1/10th the social pressure to do that as we did mask wearing so many issues in society could be helped

Masks are only political because the right wing hates any science based information. Climate change denial, anti vaxxers, it's all right wing refusal to accept science.

The "best defense" is a $4 mask with some questionable stitching from China, not the multiple vaccines that took millions of dollars to develop, test, and rush to the people. Okay. Sure.

Now that docters have found ways to treat covid. No more people are dieing from covid then the flu. You have a 99.9 percent chance of survival, which is almost identical to the flu. Everyone is wearing mask and still catching the virus, because its like the flu. They have found that staying at home is the biggest spreader of all. Yet people are told to stay at home. I believe myself that this is the greatest con job in world history. So the question is..why?
