CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Getting Coronavirus Wore Masks

A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them.

A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.

“In the 14 days before illness onset, 71% of case-patients and 74% of control participants reported always using cloth face coverings or other mask types when in public,” the report stated.

  1. If you search nih.gov, you can find studies going back decades that have proven that masks are not effective against a virus. At least one study showed that wearing masks for extended periods of time led to respiratory illnesses that would exhibit symptoms similar to having a virus, which sounds like the control group.

  2. We in healthcare have know for DECADES that the main transmission route for viral respiratory illness has been is fomites…..transferred from contact by your hands from contaminated surfaces to your face. The NUMBER ONE defense against transfer of fomites is PROPER hand hygiene.
