CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Contracting COVID Did This One Thing
Even though people wear masks in every public place they go to, there are still people who are continuing to test positive for COVID-19.
Let me rephrase that; most people who catch COVID are those who are wearing masks.
As we continue our way through this pandemic, the World Health Organization has recommended that everyone stay at home unless it is clearly necessary and then wear a mask.
With more than a million deaths and 37 million recorded cases worldwide, who knows when it will all be over.
One report stated, “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.”
In addition, over 14 percent of the case-patients said they “often” wore a face covering and were still infected with the virus. The study also demonstrates that under 4 percent of the case-patients became sick with the virus even though they “never” wore a mask or face covering.
Despite over 70 percent of the case-patient participants’ efforts to follow CDC recommendations by committing to always wearing face coverings at “gatherings with ≤10 or >10 persons in a home; shopping; dining at a restaurant; going to an office setting, salon, gym, bar/coffee shop, or church/religious gathering; or using public transportation,” they still contracted the virus.
While the study notes that some of these people may have contracted the virus from the few moments that they removed their mask to eat or drink at “places that offer on-site eating or drinking,” the CDC concedes that there is no successful way to evaluate if that was the exact moment someone became exposed and contracted the virus.
We’ve already seen the studies that show that wearing a mask has almost no benefit and does not significantly prevent a person from contracting the virus.
