Isn’t there only 1 person here who’s against masks? WHO and CDC both flip flopped which doesn’t give them a ton of credibility. I still don’t get the uproar against masks. They are cheap and not much of an inconvenience. It seems like a relatively easy thing to do.
Newsome didn’t help himself with the secret contract to buy masks from China just before he mandated them.
Plenty of people are skeptical about the increase being due to re-opening. It would be ignorant to ignore the impact of protests and mixing in antibody tests results. Plus, we are testing for more people now. We should have more cases given most cases have zero symptoms. Originally, we only tested those with symptoms, so we were at best capturing 25% of people with COVID. Ignoring factors that any reasonable and unbiased scientists should consider just makes the whole thing look stupid.
