More details on covid lock down collateral damage. These are from the UK but surly apply here as well:


  • Delays in treatment are set to cause a 20 per cent rise in deaths among newly diagnosed cancer patients in England – 6,270 excess deaths this year;
  • Treatment for strokes fell by 45 per cent during lockdown and there were more than 2,000 excess deaths in from heart disease;
  • More than 50,000 operations for children were cancelled;
  • Organ transplants fell by two thirds, with the number of those who died on the transplant waiting list almost doubling;
  • Total waiting lists for routine orthopaedic and eye operations are at record levels;
  • Calls to child abuse helplines rocketed;
  • As rates of depression and anxiety doubled, thousands of recovering alcoholics have relapsed.

College students are driving the increase in covid infections in a number of states. So close the colleges and stop the spread. Except that college students who get the covid don't die or even get very sick. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


For the math challenged on Yappi that's a death rate of less then 0.001%. And it's probably lower then that given that a lot more then 214,000 college students have become infected with covid.

You just made 9 straight posts of BS while the pandemic rages at insane levels of infections and hospitalizations. You are very funny.

Science!


Rumors are that in this controlled study that no one will publish masks did not work.
smh. blogger wannabe

Part of our long running discussion. Lotr you've completed the joke your position on this has become and that you have any idea what research is. You go from a declaration this is true science to a fact stated titled that is exactly as described in your last comment, "rumor." The rest of your links, same politically based nonsense, I'll presume the rest of the links the same.

All the article is saying, the research process has not been confirmed or repeated. As all researchers know it must be.

Please, continue to not wear masks, go visit the covid wards and hug as many people as you can. Be sure to document. Solid research.

What are you talking about? You don't need to run a 2nd clinical study before you publish the results of the first one. In the discussion and conclusions part of a scientific paper is where you point out that the results presented in this paper need to be replicated. You would know this if you had actually ever wrote a scientific paper.

Hell I doubt you can even read a scientific paper with any level of understanding.

BTW IF this paper shows that masking had little effect on covid transmission then it would be consistent with the accumulated evidence of mask wearings effectiveness against flu transmission. That alone is a powerful confirmation of the studies reliability.

And do you believe that there would be any hesitation to publish this study in the leading journals if the authors had found that masking reduces covid spread? That's the point and the concern. You don't make decisions to publish a study based on whether it matches political & bureaucratic convention. That's how Soviet science worked.

But here judge this clinical trials design for yourself:


And here is more information on the controversy of why leading journals are turning down this paper:

So it's settled science? is this what you are suggesting? You know that masks work, and there is no need for further study of the subject?

I wonder how long will it be after the vaccine is out and the virus is gone before we get the truth from the scientists that Biden says he will listen and follow about whether masks worked or not. I am betting on years and maybe never.

Pretty sure he never said that. Not sure how citing rumor/speculation about the contents of an unpublished study leads one to conclude that he believes "rumor = science." Seems like a reach, but whatevs I guess. 🤷‍♂️
When all else fails, create a strawman? 🤷‍♂️
