    Yes we had this discussion already every study the cdc referenced from 1942 - jun 2020 said no significant difference in transmission of cold or flu with mask wear out side a clinical setting (i.e. public places). the same studies showed masks to be effective in clinical settings. Now in 2020 when when they want the panic to continue all the sudden we have all these new studies that show how effective the masks are, wow what a coincidence.

    I really don't think we are being oppressed by "Big Mask".

    If you're outside, or not within coughing distance for an extended period of time, then yeah it's probably not necessary. But that often times isn't the case. Places like the grocery store you absolutely should have the mask on. You're breathing small bits of spit all over the food which is a huge hazard. Outside? Not really a big deal.

    Report: CDC director admits hospitals have monetary ‘incentive’ to inflate coronavirus death count.


    ... in Texas when they do contact tracing if you don't go get tested you are automatically counted as positive, not sure if the same policy is in place in other states.

    Look at what we have here:
    https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/02/healt...ess/index.html

    Even CNN is starting to consider the possibility that there natural resistance due to T-cell cross-reactivity, and that this might lower the herd immunity threshold correspondingly:
    f you have 50% already in a way immune, because of these existing immune responses, then you don't need 60 to 80%, you need 10 to 30%
    This does fit the observed data very well; look at the places like northern Italy or NYC that were hit hard early on; once they hit roughly 20%, infection rates declined, and we're now starting to see the same pattern in FL, AZ, TX, etc.
