Double up on your masks. That's the updated advice from the New York Times, VOX, and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Social media noticed several people at Biden's inauguration wearing two masks. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband both wore a cloth mask over their surgical masks (N95 type).
Fauci said, 'So if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective. That’s the reason why you see people either double masking or doing a version of an N95.'
The New York Times adds, 'Double-masking is a sensible and easy way to lower your risk, especially if circumstances require you to spend more time around others — like in a taxi, on a train or plane, or at an inauguration.'
The sudden reason to go from 'masking up' to double masking up is that a COVID mutation is spreading around the world. The experts say this updated version of the virus is more contagious because the spike protein that attaches to your cells is stronger, making it easier for COVID to spread in your body.
At least that's the reason they are using it to sell double-masking.
The real reason they are recommending two masks is masking alone doesn't work. Had masks worked the spread of the virus would have been slowed. It hasn't and 90% of Americans are already wearing masks outside their homes.
The double-masking move by the Fauci's and the corporate media is also an admission they misled us about the efficacy of masks from the beginning. Mask measures were meant to mitigate fear, not mitigate the spread of the virus.
On March 8, 2020 Fauci advised against wearing masks in general saying it wasn't necessary.
Later in the year, Dr. Fauci said he was lying when he said masks weren't necessary because he didn't want the public to cause a mask shortage for healthcare workers.
Now, almost a year later he's recommending double-masks.
Mask policies were implemented so people wouldn't go into a full panic. Masks allowed people to feel a little less scared going to the grocery store. This allowed some economic activity to continue. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo even admitted the driving factor behind his COVID response was 'fear-driven.'
There are dozens and dozens of stories of people saying they did every CDC-Fauci recommended policy including mask-wearing, social distancing, and washing their hands, yet they still came down with COVID including one Arizona Republic writer.
With the COVID mutation spreading the size of the virus particle hasn't changed. The virus's ability to get inside your body hasn't changed. Only what the virus does inside your body has changed. Therefore, they are using the latest strain of the virus as cover. Cover so they don't have to admit they were wrong about masks, that they weren't 'following the science.' The science behind masks isn't science. It's computer models based guess-work.
Their initial advice led to more people getting COVID. Why? Because 'virus gonna virus.'
Oddly, the government bureaucrats rarely talk about nutrition and vitamin supplementation as a strategy to reduce inflammation in the body, which would help slow the spread of COVID. Nope. Health must be too sensitive a topic to discuss in public.
The good news is there is plenty of information out there designed to help you. Information that goes much further than masks, social distancing, and washing your hands. But, as usual, it's up to you, the government isn't here to save you.
