‘Masks Are Symbolic,’ say Dr Fauci and The New England Journal of Medicine 


This is from the New England Journal of Medicine on May 21, 2020: 

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.

Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes).

The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal.

  • In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic. So, why are we ordered to wear masks? Symbolism.
  • It is also clear that masks serve symbolic roles.
  • Masks are not only tools, they are also talismans

PURE MAGICK AIN’T IT ?
