As if mask mandates brought on by the Chinese Plague are not draconian enough, Dr. Anthony Fauci and other researchers now suggest literally doubling and tripling down.
"So if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on." Dr. Fauci said. "It just makes common sense that it would be more effective." A study by Virginia Tech professor Linsey Marr along with Dr. Monica Gandhi with the University of California-San Francisco ups the ante even farther, suggesting three masks. Report analytics suggest double masks increase efficiency against Covid by 50 to 75 percent, while triple masks can potentially be 90 percent efficient. One mask? Might as well be naked. Of course the simple ability to breathe while going through daily routines decreases proportionally.
The new recommended standards were hailed on a CNBC segment by Contessa Brewer and Shep Smith. At one point, Brewer donned a Chinese KN95 mask easily available on Amazon that features the equivalent of five layers and extremely tight fitting. So in addition to creating the pandemic, China is not out front making profits providing the solution. Smith also said those sporting beards and goatees consider going clean shaven as recommended on the mask label.
Colorado based physician Dr. Dave Hnida noted that he and his family routinely wear two masks, "but that three masks might be going to far" for it could restrict the ability to breathe. The updated suggestions come as more variants of COVID-19 are discovered and as President Joe Biden signed executive orders mandating masks on planes, trains, buses and on all Federal property.
