Disease Expert Accidentally Tells CNN that Masks Don't Prevent Viral Infections

During a segment on CNN Monday, University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy Director Michael Osterholm told the CNN audience that paper and cloth masks don’t prevent the transmission of the virus.

“We know today that many of the face cloth coverings that people wear are not very effective in reducing any of the virus movement in or out,” Osterholm exclaimed.

“We need to talk about better masking,” he added. “We need to talk about N-95 respirators, which would do a lot for both people who are not yet vaccinated or not previously infected.”

This fact has been obvious since day one. Even the left’s favorite coronavirus saint, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said as much more than a year ago.

“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you. I do not recommend you wear a mask,” Fauci wrote in an email on February 5, 2020.

Cloth and paper masks are absolutely useless. The pores in paper and cloth masks are bigger than the size of every virus. Not just the Coronavirus. All of them. Every virus.

Viruses can float in and out at will of any mask but the heavy-duty ones.

Wearing a mask is just a feels-goodism. It is not protection. It is also just a way for Democrats to control you.
