For perspective, read: "A city of masks: When the flu tore through San Francisco"
Then consider this:
Finally, consider this:
The CDC recommends the wearing of masks. “Your cloth face covering may protect you,” Fauci now says.
There's that little qualifier again, "may." It’s possible that cloth face coverings “may” be protective. But there’s no data to support a statement that they “will” protect you. Yet everyone seems to treat the two words as interchangeable because some government bureaucrat carefully crafted a true statement that is also meaningless.
The COVID-19 virus is in water droplets where mask-wearing may stop the virus from spreading for a while, at least until those water droplets caught in your mask evaporate into an aerosol, a few minutes at most.
These microscopic water particles with virus riders are to droplets as clouds are to rain. Droplets, which come from loud voices, coughs, and sneezes, rain out to the ground rapidly [six feet] and don’t participate in life after that.
Aerosols, on the other hand, escape around paper masks, through the valve on N-95 masks, and through the fabric of cloth masks to continue on as aerosol-clouds for extended distances before they slowly dissipate.
Masks will stop droplets, just like an umbrella will stop the rain. But expecting a mask to stop an aerosol is like asking a chain-link fence to stop mosquitoes. It's not happening.
A study on "Prednisone, Hydroxychloroquine Best Among COVID-19 Treatments," claims large Spanish study.

They’re coming for our churches… – As we have repeatedly pointed out, Marxist movements are always anti-Christian and anti-Jewish endeavors. The current Marxist movement being mounted in America today by the Soros-funded Antifa/Black Lives Matter/Democrat Party alliance is also allied with Islam, which only makes it even more focused on its fervor to destroy other major religious symbols and institutions.
Christians in China ordered to renounce faith, worship communist government to receive welfare payments
Last weekend, this anti-religious fervor resulted in the highly-suspicious burning of three Christian churches across the country. That campaign has continued this week with the desecration of Catholic symbols in various cities in the U.S. and Canada.
A report from the Daily Caller:
A Catholic church in New Haven, Connecticut, has reported vandalism as attacks on churches continue throughout the U.S.
Pastor John Paul Walker of St. Mary’s Parish, which consists of both St. Mary’s Catholic Church and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church,announced in a Thursday Facebook post that St. Joseph’s Church was vandalized sometime between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.
The Archdiocese of Hartford also shared a Facebook post confirming that a person or group of persons had painted anarchist and satanic symbols on the doors of St. Joseph Church in New Haven." [RELATED: Statue Of Jesus Vandalized At Catholic Church In Canada]
“This follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala,” the pastor wrote on Facebook. “The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.”
The efforts by Democrat governors like Gavin Newsom, Phil Murphy and Gretchen Whitmer to continue their illegal discrimination against religious freedom only encourages this kind of activity by marginalizing Christians and Jews, just as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong did during the 20th century. The timid response by leaders of those faiths seen thus far only encourages the thugs to double down.
At some point, America’s Christians and Jews will either have to engage in massive civil disobedience or this highly organized and coordinated campaign to marginalize them will only continue to grow.
Sadly, thanks to the constant peddling of panic porn by the corrupt news media, more and more Republican governors and Mayors are helping them along. Whether they do so knowingly or unwittingly doesn’t matter: Every new lockdown order, every new shutting down of specific classes of businesses, every new limitation on the number of people who can attend church or Synagogue on the Sabbath, every new ordered destruction of thousands of jobs pushes our nation closer and closer to the critical mass needed to elect a new wave of Marxist Democrat true believers with the same mindset of AOC and Ilhan Omar into office.
