I have covered the topic of mask wearing extensively in several previous posts, including a post with 29 links to studies and papers regarding this topic (Go HERE).
In July 2020 the CDC conducted a study (Go HERE). The conclusions in that study are as follows:
The CDC studied patients with coronavirus and researchers found that 71% of the case-patients contracted the virus despite reporting “always” wearing a cloth face covering or mask at least 14 days before illness onset, and 14 percent contracted the virus despite reporting “often” wearing one at least 14 days before illness onset.
Those are extraordinary results directly implying masks do not stop (or slow) the spread of COVID19, and might contribute to the propagation of the virus. These findings line-up well with many of the studies and papers referred to in our post linked in the first paragraph above (GO HERE).
These data align well with the recent statement from the World Health Organization (Go HERE), in which they found the coronavirus death rate has plummeted to .13% (from their 3.4% projection in March 2020. That March rate was 26 times the current rate). There is every likelihood the rate may come down further.
It is important to note that the WHO has stated the annual flu death rate is approximately .10%, which means the COVID19 death rate has dropped to near flu levels. Another critical finding by the WHO is they now estimate 760,000,000 people have been infected at some time during this pandemic, that is 20 times the confirmed cases.
