As we head into 2021, we are being told masks may be the “new normal.”
State after state is imposing more draconian policies in the hopes of “slowing the spread.”
But now a new detailed analysis of all 50 states shows a shocking fact about mask mandates.
Everywhere we go people are wearing masks.
We’ve even seen masks on dogs and babies.
Wearing masks seems to be a status symbol – but it’s more like a virtue signal.
Cloth masks, paper masks, funny masks, ludicrous masks.
We here at Deep State Journal have said from the beginning that the masks are ludicrous.
It’s never been about “slowing the spread” or “saving just one life.”
No, mask mandates have always been about one thing.
The political class and their pals in the media are working with Big Pharma and the medical industry to force everyone to conform to the new world order.
Sure, politicians will virtue signal and wear masks when they’re on camera, but they rip them off as soon as the cameras are off.
And it’s no surprise. Because the simple fact is masks don’t work. Just last week, researchers at RationalGround.com – which has become a well-respected leader in tracking and monitoring COVID-
19 data trends – did an analysis on all 50 states based on those that had mask mandates and those that did not.
They studied each state’s total number of known coronavirus cases over a 229-day period from May 1 through Dec. 15 and divided the results by the days with mask mandates and days without mask mandates.
The clearinghouse, run by a group of seasoned data analysts, computer scientists, and actuaries, reported their results in a Twitter thread from Justin Hart, co-founder of RationalGround.
The results were shocking, even for us.
It turns out there is absolutely no evidence that mask mandates worked to slow the spread at all.
The states that had mandates in effect averaged 27 cases per 100,000 while the states without mandates had 17 per 100,000.
The 15 states that did not have a statewide mask mandate for the duration of this analysis were Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Wyoming.
And not only did the mask mandates not work, but they actually could be seen as being worse, even at the county level, if only slightly there.
There simply is no evidence of masks correlating with reduced spread, no matter how you run the numbers.
It’s just a scientific fact that viruses will do what viruses do regardless of state policies.
It’s time for Americans to wake up, rip off those useless masks and say NO MORE!
