Not much time today, but wanted to get something off my chest before it keeps me up again at night. I’m trying to get packed to go to my grandmother’s funeral tomorrow. So, sorry, won’t be links to what I’m referring to this post. Most of the links can be found over at Principia Scientifica International if you’re curious.
Covid-19, it’s not just a novel virus. It’s magically different then every other virus. It does things that no one ever thought it could do.
We have 40 years of scientific research, starting with Dr. Orr, showing us that medical masks don’t reduce infection rates. Several studies have come out in the decades since his study showing that infection rates aren’t reduced in the operating room, the hospital floor or even in the dentist’s office, by the wearing of a mask.
But this virus is different. Masks work! They keep us all safe and our infection numbers down we’re told. Which would indicate that the infection is being caught in the mask. Only, we’re told that no, the mask after having been worn is not actually a biohazard. We can simply drop it in the trash when done. I have yet to see a biohazard disposal box anywhere in public.
