For a month we have been urging Americans to wear face masks whenever outdoors and around other people. The White House now recommends All Americans begin wearing cloth masks or some type of face coverings in public to dampen the spread of SARS-CoV-2. For more, see Spread the Word. Not the Virus. #MaskUp
The CDC still advises citizens not to #MaskUp. How many people have our “experts” sickened or killed? How many more will die due to their slow response?
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams (2.29):
“Seriously people. STOP BUYING MASKS!”
“They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”
Texas City Fines Residents For Not Masking
City council in Laredo, Texas, passed a resolution earlier this week that fines residents up to $1,000 for not wearing some form of covering on their nose and mouth in the midst of the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak.
All residents over the age of 5 are required to have their nose and mouth covered when entering public buildings, using public transportation or when pumping gas. The emergency measure went into effect Thursday, April 2nd.
“This does not apply when a person is: engaging in a permissible outside physical activity; that are riding in a personal vehicle; that are in alone in a separate single space; that are with their own shelter group (household members); when doing so poses a greater health, safety or security risk; or for consumption purposes.”
Americans are #MaskingUp
Arrogant American officials have COVID-19 egg on their faces. Asia warned the world. They masked their population. American elected politicians laughed. As the death toll rises in our country, CNN and other media outlets question our collective response.
“The big mistake in the US and Europe, in my opinion, is that people aren’t wearing masks.”
Gao Fu, director general, Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention
California officials now disagree with CDC bureaucrats. Residents are #MaskingUp.
I have been writing local officials for about a month. On March 30th, Hawai’i Lt. Governor Josh Green, MD heard my desperate calls to #MaskUp our population. Thank you, Dr. Green!
On April 2nd, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell FINALLY took SARS-CoV-2 seriously. How many needlessly now will get sick and possibly die due to the lack of action by local officials?
As the nation falls deeper into crisis, our so-called “experts” stopped being such arrogant know-it-alls and started seeking real solutions.
An estimated 25% to 50% of people infected with SARS-CoV-2 remain asymptomatic. They don’t know they’re infectious. You don’t know either. If everyone covers their face, we reduce the transmission of the virus.
What if I sneezed on you? Wouldn’t it be better if I was masked? And if you were as well, wouldn’t all of us be more protected? Can you believe U.S. and state officials couldn’t understand this basic principle regarding infectious disease?
What If There Aren’t Enough Masks?
Masks for professionals are in short supply. You can make your own. Here’s suggestions.
Kim Hanks has been making masks from home here in Hawai’i for the past couple weeks. As she’s unable to work her regular job, she simply pitches in and helps other people in the war effort. How creative is this mask? What a hero!
Other Nations Are Beating USA in the Third World War
An example of a medical professional treating a suspected COVID-19 positive patient. The provider and patients are both protected. U.S. protocols endanger both parties.
Generations ago, there was a famous book written by Hans Christian Anderson called, “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” The emperor walked naked through the city believing he looked dazzling. Our officials have been walking around naked during this crisis. I’m happy someone finally convinced them to put on a mask.
Be safe out there and #MaskUp.
