Fox Guest: Masks Are Slowing Down Herd Immunity

Fox Guest: Masks Are Slowing Down Herd Immunity

“In fact, lockdowns and mandatory mask mandates are probably slowing the onset of herd immunity. We want people who are generally healthy to actually contract COVID if they do naturally. If you’re under the age of 50, you have got a 99.95 chance of survival.

“You need herd immunity to develop and that’s going to be between about 50-66 percent. Young healthy individuals get COVID, they get sick, they move on with their lives. For the vast, vast majority.

“Look at President Trump, he is 70 plus, he got COVID, he did beautifully. I think we’ve, we need to talk about fundamental issues, vitamin D, zinc.

“If you’re sick, quarantine. If you’re fragile, you’re vulnerable, again, stay safe, quarantine. But the rest of us have to get this society moving. This is a cruel experiment.” – Dr. Ramin Oskoui, speaking last night on Laura Ingraham’s show.

There is video at the link above.   The fact is scientists are not sure herd immunity is even possible with this virus.   They do know it would spike the death rate possibly into the millions.   How many of our population is expendable for someone else’s profits?  Are you?  Is your family?  Your children or grand children?   Why is it that these people can not see that the great USA is saying it can not do what most other countries on the planet managed to do?  When the presidents chief of staff Mark Meadows said that they wouldn’t try to control the spread of Covid he was asked why.   He replied that it was contagious, it was a virus.   Yet again other countries did control it, and even some states in the US are containing it.  I am tired of being thought of a work animal only here for someone else profit.   Also who is going to pay the large medical bills for those who get sick.    I know I was not born a wealthy entitled brat like Jared Kushner and tRump and his family, but I have as much right to life at they do.  Or damn well should.   Hugs

Florida man banned from Disney World after ‘challenging’ mask rule, video shows

Florida man banned from Disney World after ‘challenging’ mask rule, video shows

“I’m kind of challenging this mask thing right now,” Roy Fields said in a Facebook video he streamed live from Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week.

Fields runs a Lakeland-based ministry, called Run With Fire Ministries.

Face coverings are required at Disney’s theme parks, resorts and at Disney Springs.

Fields wore a mask to enter the park, he told 8 On Your Side, but removed it when it became hard to breathe. He said he has asthma.

Fields went viral earlier in the month when he posted a 9/11 conspiracy video on his Facebook page. The video has been shared more than half a million times.

In an unrelated incident, deputies were called to Epcot in August after a man hit a security guard during a dispute over the mask rules, according to reports.

Mask Refuser Dragged Out Of School Board Meeting

Notice this person claims the board is being divisive and making trouble, just because they wont give him his own way.   Yes he is the problem but in his tRump like mind not giving in to him is the problem.   Also he fights with the police, and even though the smaller one pulls his taser he doesn’t use it.   If the guy had been a big black man doing that he would be dead on the floor.   Also you can hear the woman say he just wants his say.   White privileged assholes who are making the virus worse for all of us.    Hugs

Mask Refuser Dragged Out Of School Board Meeting

The Mitchell Republic reports:

A member of the public was escorted out of the Mitchell Board of Education Monday night by Mitchell Police after he refused to don a mask as per district policy that mandates mask wearing on school property. The man, whom Mitchell School District Superintendent Joe Graves identified as Reed Bender, appeared at the meeting and sat in the front row of the audience area while not wearing a mask.

Graves contacted the Mitchell Police Division, which arrived approximately 20 minutes later and also asked Bender to leave. Bender again refused, saying he would have to be physically removed from the meeting. Two officers spoke with Bender for a few minutes before attempting to escort him out of the building. Bender resisted the officers while several audience members implored Bender to not resist.

Mitchell, South Dakota. Population 15,000.

 

 

 

 

 

Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs tweets against wearing masks, gives other questionable COVID-19 advice

Is this what the GOP is now, shilling for dollars while being willing to sacrifice the people they serve to their god of economy?   They are no longer trying to take the country back to the 1950’s but instead to the 1650’s.   A time of little education except for the elites and slave labor with early death for the rest.   A struggle for survival for most with luxury for the privileged few.    Hugs

https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-health/2020/09/08/rep-andy-biggs-tweets-covid-19-wearing-masks-hydroxychloroquine/5748715002/

Rep. Andy Biggs is neither a physician nor a scientist but he continues to attack public health advice and scientific evidence on COVID-19.

Biggs, R-Ariz., whose 5th Congressional District includes most of the East Valley area, in recent days has posted a string of pro-hydroxychloroquine and anti-mask messages on social media.

In his latest tweets, Biggs urges Arizonans to flout national and local public health guidance on COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or new coronavirus. He says Arizonans should be able to use hydroxychloroquine as a preventive COVID-19 measure, though it’s not recommended for prophylactic use by the federal or state government.

He’s also been urging members of the public to “unmask.”

Earlier this summer, Biggs challenged Arizona’s rising hospitalization numbers and suggested the COVID-19 pandemic was being blown out of proportion.

As of Tuesday, the Arizona Department of Health Services was reporting  206,045 COVID-19 cases and 5,221 known deaths from the respiratory illness.

“There’s no medical basis for what he’s telling people do to and he has no scientific standing to make these statements,” Dr. Lee Ann Kelley, Maricopa County Medical Society president, said of Biggs.

“It is absurd this has become a political issue instead of a public health issue,” Kelley said. “There is tons of evidence that masks do work and I do believe one of the reasons Arizona’s numbers went down was because of the mask mandates.”

There is real “cause and effect” evidence that masks do work and for Biggs to tell people that wearing a mask is about freedom is “highly irresponsible,” she said.

Arizona experienced a spike in COVID-19 cases in June and July that overwhelmed hospitals to a point where they canceled elective surgeries, scrambled to add COVID-19 beds and negative pressure rooms, and hired nurses and respiratory therapists from other states.

Arizona has one of the highest infection rates in the country, the CDC’s COVID tracker says. Its death rate of 72 COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 people is above the U.S. average of 57 deaths per 100,000 people, the CDC says.

In his tweets, Biggs says Arizonans should “fight the medical establishment” to have more access to hydroxychloroquine. The drug “has unfortunately become too politicized, including in Arizona,” he tweeted Aug. 31. He has since tweeted in support of Arizonans’ “right to try” hydroxychloroquine five more times.

The FDA revoked that emergency use authorization June 15 because the federal agency found that that found the medicines “showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery.”

On July 1, the FDA issued a summary of safety issues with the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Those issues include reports of serious heart rhythm problems, blood and lymph system disorders, kidney injuries and liver failure.

Biggs told Martin in the interview that hydroxychloroquine is “a safe drug that seems to have some positive effects, so let us make that choice. Let us as free individuals make that choice after meeting with our physician.”

He blames restrictions on the drug that are in place in various states on “petty tyrants.”

There is more of his craziness at the link above.   I waded through it, and if you want to see how devoted to every word tRump utters and such blatant dismissing of education along with public safety, then give it a read.  These jerks and assholes act as if 200,000 thousand people dead of this are nothing, at least to them.   He is only interested in getting people back to what was so that his hero tRump can win and his wealthy donors have their money flowing again.    Hugs

Christian Booted from Alaska Walmart After Screaming About Satanic Face Masks

Christian Booted from Alaska Walmart After Screaming About Satanic Face Masks

Instead of returning with a mask, which is what decent people would do, the man started screaming out things like, “Get back on your highway to hell and get out of a godly man’s face” and “Return to your service of Satan and your ignorant belief that you’re right.”

While we don’t have any information on who this asshole is, there’s no shortage of Christian pastors who have downplayed the COVID threat and insisted that it’s fine to hold services with little regard for social distancing or masks. None of them give a damn about the science. They act like it’s their right to infect other people because their faith teaches them to be selfish.

There is more including the video of the jerk at the link above.   Hugs
