Fraudci, who will soon 'resign' from his position, had words of advice for a Friend of Obama on masks. The email was dated February 5, 2020.
Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection. The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you. I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a vey low risk location. Your instincts are correct, money is best spent on medical countermeasures such as diagnostics and vaccines.Is this his 3rd, 4th, or 5th iteration of Scientific Guidelines?
