Yep, as long as it's a far left narrative. As you see with Trump shutting down travel last year, which NOW I'm sure he doesn't think went far enough. Oh, along with Mao's little red book. But he's more disingenuous than just parroting the media.
Which paper are you referring to? Masks are one of the best researched aspects of medicine so you're going up against 100 or more years of medical studies, but let's start with the basics: which paper concludes that masks don't work?
Even the CDC admits this:
"In 2015, we conducted a randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of cloth masks with that of medical masks and controls (standard practice) among healthcare workers in Vietnam (4). Rates of infection were consistently higher among those in the cloth mask group than in the medical mask and control groups. This finding suggests that risk for infection was higher for those wearing cloth masks. The mask tested was a locally manufactured, double-layered cotton mask. Participants were given 5 cloth masks for a 4-week study period and were asked to wash the masks daily with soap and water (4). The poor performance may have been because the masks were not washed frequently enough or because they became moist and contaminated. Medical and cloth masks were used by some participants in the control group, but the poor performance of cloth masks persisted in post hoc analysis when we compared all participants who used medical masks (from the control and the medical mask groups) with all participants who used only a cloth mask (from the control and the cloth mask groups)"
And I also ask you- when was the last time you saw a surgeon wearing a cloth mask? I'm by no measure saying N95's don't work- they do. Cloth and paper, however, do not.
Dude. You're saying they make the mandate for masks and Vax because someone that is unvaxxed may come in without a mask? No. Well that isn't why they say they're doing it so...why are they doing it? If you can't come up with a reason besides that then c'mon, man
It doesn't really get more scientific than "there's a REAAAAAAAALLY strong correlation between the kinds of people who get their vaccines and the kinds of people who keep their masks on once they're inside".
I'm honestly certain that what you mean is, you want to find a reason to reject any answer that would be offered to this question so that you can then say nobody offered you a valid answer.
