Biden’s COVID Guy Says Doubling Face Diapers Could Increase Virus Spread

But you double the virtue, so what now?

An infectious disease expert says wearing two face masks may increase the chances of getting infected by COVID-19.

Michael Osterholm, who was a member of the Biden Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board, gave a second opinion after Dr. Anthony Fauci said last week that doubling up on face masks “likely” provides more protection than wearing just one mask.

“When we talk about double masking, remember what we’re really talking about is just trying to prevent the virus from being excreted by me into the air or me inhaling the virus from someone else in the air, and it’s both a function of face fit and face filtration,” Osterholm said during an interview Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press.

The director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota compared face masks to swim goggles, noting that leaks usually happen “at the fit” rather than at the lenses.

“So what we’re concerned about is that many of these face cloth coverings do have already compromised fit or filtration capacity. If you add on another mask, you may actually make it tougher for the air to move through the two-cloth area, and then at that point, it causes more air to actually leak around the sides, which actually enhances your ability to get infected,” Osterholm said.

“I’m not saying that some couldn’t be used in a better way, but at the same time, there are many that may actually, you may do more harm,” Osterholm added. “Let me just say right now, one thing that’s really to me very important is we see up to 25% of people who wear it under their nose. You know, that’s like fixing 3 of the 5 screen doors in your submarine. You know, what’s going on there? We’ve got to get people to start using these right, that would help right there tremendously.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that people should wear masks “in public settings, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people.” The agency also advises that the masks have two or more layers of breathable fabric, but it has not sent out guidance on wearing two masks.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and President Biden’s chief medical adviser, spoke on Monday about how masks are a physical covering that helps to prevent respiratory droplets from spreading. “So, if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on — it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective, and that’s the reason why you see people either double-masking or doing a version of an N95,” Fauci said on the Today show.

The CDC does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including the coronavirus, noting that they and surgical masks are intended for healthcare workers.

Late on Friday, the CDC issued an order, effective Tuesday, that says masks “are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.”

    Fine with me,,, hell pile three or more on. It’ll just reduce their brain functions, assuming the maskholes have any left, and finish a lot of them off with bacterial pneumonia and a host of other nice killer diseases. After all, Gates and ilk have burned through a lot of money to achieve your RIP. Give them their money’s worth!

    And just who in the hell died and made CDC a god? I missed it when reading the constitution,,, did not see medical quacks mentioned anywhere. OH! That’s right. The constitution is now a terrorist document per the new administration and congress.

    465 ‘new cases’ in British Columbia today, and while the COVID dashboard represents that as an element of a steadily-falling curve, the provincial health authorities who apparently are running the province said they were ‘concerned’ when the number passed 100 per day. We are now more than 5 maturity-cycles for COVID infection – assuming it is 2 weeks – into the mandatory indoor masking policy, and still, clearly, seeing hundreds of new ‘cases’ every day. Why hasn’t mask-wearing knocked this number down dramatically? In fact, the ‘new cases’ number likely represents how fast they can test new applicants, and the actual infections could be much higher – if you believe the PCR test is accurate – or the number provided could be completely valueless and nobody really has any idea.

    But you have to admit, it’s a sweet scheme. You can make the numbers go however you like, because the test that records the daily count is shit and is known to generate many false positives. When it looks like the numbers are coming down, the authorities right away ramp up the fear by announcing that many new cases are the ‘super-infectious’ UK fish-and-chips virus, or the terrible South African weebo variant, and people quail in terror. Rather than easing off, the medical Nazis are doubling down and ordering increased masking in schools, and the 2021 cruise-ship season is officially canceled – no passenger vessels (except domestic ferries) which can carry more than 100 passengers are even allowed in Canadian waters until 2022. I can tell you right now that if we’re still cowering in our homes and walking around wearing face-panties by the end of 2021, the country will be far past bankrupt and ready for sale to the highest bidder, with the money we must be borrowing to pay people to not work and stay home.

    I’ve lost count of the number of restaurants that have closed permanently, meaning they have announced they have no plans to ever re-open, and small businesses are slowly squashed until they scream for mercy. Delivery services are making out like bandits, while nearly everything has moved online. Canada is a Schwabian wet dream for Great Resetters.
