Terd Immunity.........

Well, that's a little embarrassing to say but in my country the response to the virus was probably among the worst in the world, so now we have a case study on herd immunity for Covid19. That's the only explanation for the decline in infections and deaths in the studied city, since safety guidelines were poorly followed and social distancing was almost inexistent during the peak of the pandemic. The bad news is that the herd immunity was supposedly achieved with around 66% of the population infected.

Oh boy here we go!

Examine the premises behind this article.

1) It's based on the assumption that mask-wearing is effective despite data from numerous places showing a substantial increase in cases shortly after mask mandates were imposed. The timing correlation between these "spikes" and the mandates should be enough to make one wonder whether mask mandates aren't actually counter-productive.

2) It's also based on the assumption that people remain just as fastidious about hand-washing as they were several months ago, and personal observations tell me this is not the case. Hand-washing only works if you do it and do it thoroughly.

That said, it is of course an evolutionary advantage for a virus to become more contagious, but also to produce less severe symptoms.

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Nabarro said.

This article claims he "ignored guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention" without providing a any evidence, such as a link to the guidelines he ostensibly ignored.

What has happened to actual journalism?

So can anyone care to provide a link to CDC guidelines that contradict what the congressional attending physician stated they are?

New CDC Report Shows Wearing Masks Didn’t Help for July.


"...showed that 85% of those who contracted COVID-19 during July among the study group either “always” or “often” wore face coverings within the 14 days before they were infected. More than 70% of those outpatient individuals who tested positive reported always wearing masks. Just 3.9% reported never wearing a mask. "

" The reality is that the pores in surgical masks are about 30 times larger than the average size of SARS-CoV-2 virions, and some of the cheap (but more comfortable) cotton masks that are commonly worn have pores hundreds of times larger than the virus particles. "

"Whether it’s Japan, Hong Kong, Israel, France, Peru, Philippines, Hawaii, California, Miami, or Argentina, the virus spread wildly months after strict mask mandates have already been in place"
