It’s time to follow the science

Bazant and Bush question long-held Covid-19 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization in a peer-reviewed study published earlier this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science of the United States of America.

“We argue there really isn’t much of a benefit to the 6-foot rule, especially when people are wearing masks,” Bazant said in an interview. “It really has no physical basis because the air a person is breathing while wearing a mask tends to rise and comes down elsewhere in the room so you’re more exposed to the average background than you are to a person at a distance.”

So if all of this isn’t about the science, what is it about?

In answer I submit that there are groups who seriously benefit when our economy is crippled, nobody’s going to work or school, and we are more “socially distant” (you may remember we used to call it “antisocial”) , separated from each other.

And it’s no accident that these are the results of government orders, particularly in States run by leftists, such as California, New York and so on. It’s also no accident that all of this occurred just prior to a national election where election rules could be changed at a whim all because of the fear of the virus… A fear whipped up to a frenzy by the same people who would politically benefit from the effects of that fear.

The study identifies clearly that we are being lied to:

“We need scientific information conveyed to the public in a way that is not just fear mongering but is actually based in analysis,” the author of the study said.

Is the virus real? Certainly. Is our reaction to it beneficial? Clearly, the answer is no.

The fear mongers need to be called to account.
