CDC Study Shows the Vast Majority of People Who get Coronavirus Wore Masks


A report by the Centers for Disease Control published in September shows that masks and face shields are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those who wear them constantly.


A study conducted in the US in July found that 154 "case-patients" who tested positive for COVID-19 were compared with a control group of 160 participants from the same health center who tested symptomatic but negative. More than 70 percent of market patients were infected with the virus and became ill, even though they "always" wore a mask.


"In the 14 days before the onset of the disease, 71% of patients and 74% of controls said they always wear dust covers or other types of masks in public," the report said.

Besides, more than 14 percent of case-patients said they "often" wear a face mask and are still infected with the virus. The study also shows that less than 4 percent of case-patients affected with the virus, even though they "never" wore a mask or face mask.


Despite the efforts of more than 70 percent of the participating case-patients to follow the CDC recommendations by undertaking to always wear face cover in meetings with ≤ 10 or> 10 people in a household; a restaurant, an office, a lounge, a gym, a bar/cafeteria or a church / religious gathering or the use of public transport, ”they added.


While the study finds that some of these people may have contracted the virus from the few moments they removed their mask to "eat or drink in places that offer local food or drink", the CDC admits that they do not go with it. Assess successfully whether this was the exact moment that someone exposed and infected the virus.


"It can be difficult to characterize community exposure when widespread transmission occurs, particularly of asymptomatic individuals in intrinsically connected communities," the report said.



Indeed, the report suggests that "the direction, ventilation, and intensity of the airflow may affect the transmission of the virus, even if measures of social distancing and the use of masks are implemented under current guidelines."


Despite this new scientific information, the CDC, director of the National Allergy and Infectious Disease Institute Anthony Fauci, and many political authorities continue to encourage people to wear masks. Many states and cities have even called for masks, citing them as one of the primary tools to slow down the spread of coronavirus and keep case numbers low in their area.
