Face masks suck. They are a publicly visible sign of compliance to tyranny.
Even the CDC and WHO openly and recently state that face masks suck. There’s no proof they reduce the spread of influenza like viruses, but there is proof they can cause medical harm.
From major CDC study posted last month https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/5/19-0994_article
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.
We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.
… and from the World Health Organization http://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/Adviceusemaskscommunityrevised.pdf
Using a mask incorrectly however, may actually increase the risk of transmission, rather than reduce it.
Although some alternative barriers to standard medical masks are frequently used (e.g. cloth mask, scarf, paper masks, rags tied over the nose and mouth), there is insufficient information available on their effectiveness.
Today, Governor Abbott of Texas issued Executive Order GA-29, decreeing that
Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when
inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when
in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social
distancing from another person not in the same household; provided, however,
that this face-covering requirement does not apply to the following:
How can I resist effectively?
