The CDC has finally admitted that face masks are not very effective at preventing the spread of coronavirus after getting tremendous pressure to stop mask mandates across the nation. In a recent study, the CDC discovered that face masks had no influence on coronavirus numbers that did not go past statistical error margins.
The study discovered that between the months of March and December in 2020, face masks reduced infection rates 1.5 percent. With the face masks being only 0.5 percent effective in the first twenty days and under 2 percent effective after one-hundred days.
The CDC said it still urges the public to use masks, but they also admitted such mandates do not cause any real difference. In the meantime, some states across the country have returned to normal by ending mask mandates.
