A couple of weeks ago, I showed data from three US states which demonstrated very clearly that wearing a face nappy makes sod all difference to covid spread. Now here is data from closer to home which makes the same point. Can the mask cultists explain this? Of course not so they will insist that I am not a doctor so not allowed to opine. Of course my job does focus on looking at numbers and explaining them but Harold Shipman is more qualified to interpret data than I am. Whatever..
On July 19, England removed the mask mandate so allowing folks to do all sorts of things without wearing a face nappy which we in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland cannot do. Here in Wales, I refuse to obey a moronic law which patently is not justified by the data and so go maskless everywhere. But I am afraid that most of my fellow citizens obey the diktat. So mask wearing is more common in Wales, Scotland and God’s chosen land of Northern Ireland than it is in England. I am sure there is a joke about the mates of Gerry Adams in there somewhere.
If one is to believe those who say masks work you would expect covid cases in England to have increased at a faster rate or decreased at a slower rate than in the other three countries since July 19. But the chart below tells a very different story. Now I am not arguing that there is a causal link between wearing masks and more covid spread. That is because I actually understand data analysis, unlike almost all Shipmans. But the chart does suggest more evidence from a 65-million person lab test that wearing a mask does not slow covid spread at all. As for covering your hands in a smelly gel….
