Mask Mandates are Without Question, Useless

Fact: COVID-19 Cases are Higher with Mask Mandates than Without

A new study shows that mask mandates do the opposite of what they are supposed to do, wherein they actually encourage the virus to spread through communities, rather than stop it.

  • Rational Ground looked at COVID-19 cases from 1 May to 15 December 2020, in all 50 US states, those with and without mask mandates
  • Among states with no mask mandates, 17 cases per 100,000 people per day were counted, compared to 27 cases per 100,000 people per day in states with mask mandates
  • NPIs (Nonpharmaceutical interventions), including mask mandates, travel restrictions, stay-at-home orders, quarantines and lockdowns, do not reduce COVID-19 transmission and death rates, according to a working paper released by the National Bureau of Economic Research
  • For all the countries and US states studied, once the region experienced 25 cumulative COVID-19 deaths, the growth rates of daily COVID-19 deaths fell from initially high levels to close to Zero within 20 to 30 days
  • After this initial frame, growth rates of daily COVID-19 deaths have “hovered around zero or below everywhere in the world,” with or without NPIs
  • Mask mandates were rolled out despite a lack of solid evidence to support their use among the general population; on the contrary, the evidence against them continues to mount.

If you live in an area without a mask mandate, remember that wearing 1, or not, is a personal choice.

For those in areas with mask mandates, keep in mind that most rules state you must wear a mask unless you can maintain a 6-ft distance from people which means in many cases you can forgo wearing a mask and still be in compliance with the mandate.

Have a healthy Happy New Year, Keep the Faith!
