The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just issued a stunning mask reversal. Democrats have been completely humiliated with less than 20 days until the November election. They never expected this to happen.
“The researchers found that 71 percent of the case-patients contracted the virus despite reporting ‘always’ wearing a cloth face covering or mask at least 14 days before illness onset,” reported Breitbart News on an overlooked CDC report from July.
This represents a major reversal on the issue of masks and Democrats have egg on their face once again. Since the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak, liberal politicians have pushed for restrictive mask mandates as a cure-all for the virus.
However, as Breitbart also noted, the CDC report “indicates 85 percent of the COVID-19 study participants contracted the virus even after either always (71 percent) or often (14 percent) wearing a face covering or mask.”
Does this mean masks can’t help in some way? Of course not. After all, a mask is simply a tool — it doesn’t guarantee that one won’t catch the virus. But the pro-mask hysteria has now been proven to be a politically-motivated narrative.
What the hysteria has likely caused is a false sense of security and, therefore, a lack of appropriate social distancing. It is one of the reasons why President Donald Trump refused to push a national mask mandate in the first place. He was right.
