Outdoor Maskers Asked Why They Don’t Follow The New CDC Recommendations

The Daily Caller ventured out into the streets of Washington D.C. to ask people wearing masks outside about new CDC guidelines that say masks are no longer necessary for the fully vaccinated. The announcement from the CDC caused widespread confusion among cities, states, and individual people. Some breathed (pun intended) a sigh of relief upon hearing the news from the CDC. Others were skeptical of the news, fearing that it contradicts what they have been told about the virus and mask-wearing.

Many of the people in D.C. echoed the sentiments of Dr. Fauci. The controversial doctor (who has become famous because of the pandemic) recently got caught up in a whirlwind of controversy due to his stance on wearing masks for “optics” purposes and not “science”.

Fauci said that he wore masks indoors, even after being vaccinated, because he did not want to send the wrong message. Several people in the Daily Caller street interview video said the exact same thing. There was also some doubt for the CDC shared among those interviewed in Washington. And the source of their doubt is actually pretty valid. If the CDC said that masks were essential and should not be dropped any time soon just one week ago, why would they change their tune now?

Mask “critics” who doubted the word of the CDC were, up until recently, seen as “ignorant Trump supporters who don’t believe in science”. That has changed with many left-leaning people also doubting the CDC’s stance on the issue of masks. Each “side” on the issue of doubting the CDC has a valid reason for their doubt. The virus is brand new and, quite frankly, the Government is just about as prepared as anyone else to deal with it.

  1. Notice how most of those masks were ill-fitting, slipping down, or just weren’t pulled up? I’m not saying THESE people were obsessive, but if you’re going to be obsessive, then go all the way. Don’t be a hypocrite. The CDC is a government (political) agency, just like the ATF, CIA, FBI, etc. They will back up their bosses almost all of the time. If they provide “guidance”, then feel free to follow. If they start mandating things, it’s because they are getting direction from their bosses, and you can be assured it has nothing to do with any perceived expertise.

  2. I’m a retired Registered Nurse, so I know whereof I speak: the only time Fauci told the truth was at the very beginning, when he said that masks need not be worn.

    According to Merriam-Webster (online), “Bacteria are giants when compared to viruses. The smallest bacteria are about 0.4 micron (one millionth of a meter) in diameter while viruses range in size from 0.02 to 0.25 micron. This makes most viruses submicroscopic, unable to be seen in an ordinary light microscope. They are typically studied with an electron microscope.”

    The maximum filtration capability of an N95 mask is 0.3 micron, which makes it potentially a reasonably good protection against bacteria, but not necessarily for viruses. Although there is a theory that “Brownian motion” (the erratic flight path of floating particles) would cause naked viruses to bump off of or become tangled in a filter’s mesh, and also a belief that there are rarely naked viruses, but that they are nearly always carried by droplets or other larger particles which could be filtered out by a mask, research results of mask filtering tests may be contradictory.

    Be that as it may, “It is important to note that the only way to ensure 100% efficiency of blocking particle flow is to also block airflow. Without airflow, you will not receive oxygen, and you will suffocate and die,” as stated by South Peninsula Hospital (Homer, AK).

    Our atmosphere is an ocean that is filled with invisible dirt, fauna and flora. Take a swab test of anybody’s nasopharynx, and you’ll find all kinds of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and archaea organisms there. Just because a test is “positive” for these critters doesn’t mean the host is a “case” of illness; however, if a person persists in continually wearing a mask, the re-breathing of microorganisms that the body would otherwise be expelling from the respiratory tract could make that person sick.

    Thanks for a finely produced news-and-commentary site.
