The Masks are coming off .. CDC removing mask mandate
There has been a lot of discussion on PP over the past year about Masking being used as a population control mechanism and not an attempt to try and control the C19 spread.
The CDC just removed their guidance for vaccinated persons to use masks and social distancing in most situations, indoor or outdoors.
I just read this before coming here. Terrible reporting IMHO.
So this is mostly optics in my eyes, and possibly to appease the teachers unions now that school is ending. Just long enough to appease the teachers and give them three months to be comfortable again. Maybe I’m wrong, but one of Biden’s keys to power are the teachers.
But note that the one paragraph (third or fourth) starts with “the fully protected…”. Fully vaccinated is now fully protected
And I’ve been battling arguments in other discussion venues lately that say new studies show less transmissibility and infection in the vax’ed. Yet no one will point me towards these studies. All I get is “I’m not doing you research for you” even when it’s their claim I’m asking to have cited. Shocking, I know.
I’m not buying any of this as I think we’ve just left the pandemic phase and are naturally moving into endemic and mutation phase.
If anyone can point me to the new vaccine efficacy data or study that allows for “fully protected”, I’d love to see a link.
I just am not so good at finding medical papers as I am at physical or mathematical data. Thanks.
I’ll believe it when I see it. I’m still waiting for the 2 weeks to be over that will “flatten the curve”, along with many other claims that turned out to be bullshit.
It seems clear to me that making contradictory proclamations is part of the psy-op.
Cloth masks don’t work. So Biden isn’t giving up anything by saying the vaccinated don’t have to wear them. It’s an opportunity for him to drive a further wedge between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.
It’s true that most masks being worn are not effective – any doctor or nurse will know that only an N99/FFP3 mask is effective against the tiny aerosol particles of the Covid virus, and anyone who did a bit of research would have discovered this as well. But Dr. Peter McCullough said it best when he stated that the focus of governments should have been on early treatment for the virus (including HCQ, Ivermectin, nutrients etc.) rather than pushing the emergency use of experimental vaccines, and this point was also made by Dr. Simone Gold, who said ‘No one needed to die’.
In terms of whether the vaccines are effective, Dr. McCullough mentioned in an interview that 60% of his Covid patients are fully vaccinated. Someone else posted this link here on PP recently:
Here is my take on this announcement: by offering the carrot of not having to wear a mask they hope to bring in more people for the jab. They’ll ride that horse till it no longer brings in the marks. You can expect that this will lead to an increase in vaccination checks at the entrances to schools, shops, and public venues: the same people that stand outside Whole Foods now, limiting the number of shoppers, will be asking to see your paper vaccination record, or telling you to mask up. Some vaccine defiant people will try to get around this system by printing a fake paper record… and this will be the justification for forcing everyone to have a vaccination record that is digital and unhack-able. This digital ID that is tied in with bio security is, I believe, the real purpose of the vaccination campaign; sure, the virus and/or the vaccination might kill off some percentage of the population, especially the elder and vulnerable, but I think at the end of the day it is all about setting up social control.
It appears that this is exactly the direction they are going in. Using public shaming to force non-vaxxers to wear a mask. Feels like we’re living in China.
Pappy, there is research showing a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine will cut household transmission by ½..
I’m sure there are more of these, but there is a UK study showing decreased risk of infection for vaccinated people.
As for the mask mandate update, I also think it is more about persuasion than science. Being allowed to take off your mask is a reward for getting vaccinated. It does not matter whether masks are effective, or the vaccines prevent transmission. If those things were considered at all they were seen as less important than getting everyone vaccinated.
I couldn’t open the first link but I glanced at the UK study.
I love the clinical use of “shows excellent results” in the beginning synopsis.
They also introduced so many limitations/caveats including my favorite:
Users of a participatory platform (as well as participants in all voluntary studies, including clinical trials) are likely to be more interested in health, and might behave differently to the general population as a result.
I like how the randomized controlled studies they tend to proclaim are needed for evidence of therapeutics working, but these bizarre observational studies can prove whatever they want on the effectiveness of “vaccines”.
It’s interesting that removal of masks indoors is being floated for the “vaccinated” group. The evidence is piling up that these are “leaky” “vaccines”. Suspect that the net effect will be to prolong the situation.
