How long has it been since we were told that all we needed to do was “15 days locked down to slow the spread?”
How many 15 days has that been now, since the middle of March 2020? And now places are locking down again.
But never fear, folks, Joe Biden says he has the answer! Wait for it. Are you ready?
We just need 100 more days of wearing a mask. Because 262 days is not enough.
Joe Biden says he will ask all Americans to wear a mask for the first 100 days of his administration:
“Just 100 days to mask. Not forever. 100 days and I think we’ll see a significant reduction… drive down the numbers considerably.”

“Just 100 days to mask. Not forever,” Biden said. “100 days and I think we’ll see a significant reduction… drive down the numbers considerably.”
So do what we’ve already been doing for the past 262 days? Gee, what remarkable decision making, Joe! Is there anything he says that he hasn’t plagiarized already from President Donald Trump?
But I will note a few things. Note how careful his language, suggesting that the vaccines aren’t final yet when there are already three vaccines already discovered with over 94% effective and the Trump team is already talking about plans for distribution. Biden doesn’t want to say that, because that’s what will actually reduce the virus, not anything Biden actually says or does.
But if the virus goes down after the vaccine, Biden will certainly take credit for it, saying it’s his masking/approaching it “seriously” that’s had an effect.
The problem of folks like Biden is having this shibboleth of a mask without the context of actual science of how one catches the virus. The mask isn’t magical. The mask might only protect some bigger particles from being sprayed around. It wouldn’t stop smaller virus particles. Additionally so many people don’t wear it correctly and are constantly touching it, so it can actually increase their chances of getting the virus. Not to mention that while they might wear the mask, they’re touching everything everywhere and then also touching their face.
But beyond that, when do they get that doing more of what you’ve been doing means you’re going to get the same result? And understand that over 99% survive the virus?
It’s also kind of funny that he talks about his adviser having worked with Dr. Anthony Fauci before on the last pandemic. Ah, you mean that one where his adviser Ron Klain admitted they did everything wrong and they only were saved because it wasn’t more deadly because 60 million people got it?
This is unadulterated insanity.Everyone has been masked up. New Danish study,among many,shows masks have minimal effect on spread of viral infections.California stats show masking up did not slow the upward spiral of cases. We have two vaccines, early&late Rx, and 99.98% survival

Yeah I’m old enough to remember when we were told back in March we just needed 15 days to flatten the curve… Ohio has had a mask mandate for almost 6 months now And approximately 80 to 90% of the population is mask compliant. So just stop it.

We won’t. Masks in public have been enforced for months in Louisiana and did nothing. Pretty much every city in the world that had a mask mandate is seeing cases increasing on par with cities that don’t enforce them. Still have to wear it if I need to go out though.
