Can you name any country that had a mask mandate in June and had bad case numbers in July? (Worse than AZ)
If no, then maybe masks work better than you admit.
Don't know if per capita they are as bad as Arizona, but the Philipines despite a rigorous mask mandate have had a bad outbreak. About 2000 cases per day in July. The Philippines also had had a huge testing debacle so the number of cases is being undercounted. Also Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong have also had outbreaks despite mask ordinances. Like I said...I think masks help...I don't think they help that much...saw one German piece this morning about a factory outbreak (despite mask usage there). Also saw a piece out of Italy (in Italian) that one of the main effects of mask might be to encourage distancing by being a symbol the person actually believes in distancing...though it was mostly speculation.
Hope y'all have got your goggles and faceshields. Fauci says we need goggles and faceshields.
