Masks Work? US Hits Highest Number Of One Day COVID Cases Friday

And CNN has found one expert who says US will soon hit 6 digits

Daily Covid-19 cases will hit six digits soon, expert warns, as US reports a one-day high of more than 83,000 infections

The US just marked a harrowing milestone: It recorded its highest one-day number of Covid-19 infections Friday at more than 83,000 — more than 6,000 higher than the country’s previous record set in July.

And as the fall surge continues, the daily numbers will get worse, experts warn.

“We easily will hit six-figure numbers in terms of the number of cases,” Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN Friday night. “And the deaths are going to go up precipitously in the next three to four weeks, following usually new cases by about two to three weeks.”

This comes as the country’s seven-day average of new daily cases surpassed 63,000 Friday — an 84% increase since the average started ticking back up in mid-September, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

Health officials say the steep inclines follow the reopening of schools and colleges across the US and have been largely driven by small gatherings — often family events — that are increasingly moving indoors, where the virus is likely to spread.

But, we were told that if everyone wears a mask we wouldn’t have these type of problems. That they would stop the increase, that they keep people from getting it. Dr. Fauci says they work so well they should be mandated

Dr. Anthony Fauci wants all Americans to wear a mask and — contrary to previous statements he’s made on the issue — he now favors a mask mandate in order to make that happen.

Fauci, a physician and immunologist, and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for the last three decades, told Erin Burnett on CNN’s OutFront Friday evening: “If people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating.”

“There’s going to be a difficulty enforcing it, but if everyone agrees that this is something that’s important, and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and says, you know, we’re going to mandate it but let’s just do it, I think that would be a great idea,” he said.

And Handsy Joe Biden

Speaking in Wilmington, Del. on Friday, Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden said, “First, I’ll go to every governor and urge them to mandate mask wearing in their states and, if they refuse, I’ll go to the mayors and county executives and get local mask requirements in place nationwide.”

Again, perhaps Joe missed that 37 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico have mandates. Yet, even in those states numbers are rising. And rising internationally.

    How many false positives?

    Dr. Fauci says they work so well they should be mandated

    And, if you vote for Super Predator Joe, Deep State Dwarf will be telling you how you will live.

      The stench of your fear is overwhelming
      Obviously you are no longer confident if Trump winning

      • formwiz says:

        Sock puppet, you’re too, too boring.

        Same old gibes. Don’t you people ever think for yourselves?

        And, no, I’m anything but afraid. Some people are talking Perfect Storm on our side (40+ states, add to the Senate, retake the House). I might have smiled but thought it was a best case scenario only. Now I’m thinking it’s doable. Like Custer at Hanover, everything seems to be falling into place at the right time.

        YMMV

        But the idea Gropin’ Joe had a prayer, especially after Trump let him shoot off his mouth (always a bad move for Super Predator), was always nonsense. Trump’s numbers appear to be shooting up and he’s picking up vast swathes of support.

    In the Bluegrass State, where Reichsstatthalter Andy Beshear (NSDAP-KY) imposed a mandatory mask order months ago, we shattered the weekly COVID-19 death toll with a day to spare. In Lexington, our second most liberal city, they topped 100 new COVID-19 cases on consecutive days for the first time in a month. It’s almost as though the Reichs Governor’s orders mandating masks and forbidding gatherings of more than ten people, even on private property, haven’t worked.

    But, of course, the left will respond, “But, but, but, it would have been much worse without the restrictions,” knowing that there would be no way to either prove or disprove such a claim.

    Its a WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC.

    EU has had a drastic surge and they said they are not shutting down again. It practically destroyed their countries the last time.

    Sweeden has less that 100 cases per day, and they remained open the entire time.

    Masks do not work. At least these cheap assed masks made by grandma with porous cotton. Talk about a joke. When doctors start wearing cotton masks when dealing with Covid-19 positive patients Ill start wearing a cotton mask.

    Everyone and their brother knows that the virus has mutated and is now more contagious but less lethal. That is a fact about viruses. They want to thrive not die. They mutate and become less deadly and the exceptions are Ebola which snuffs itself out regularly because they are so deadly they can’t find enough hosts to keep surviving in the wild.

    Now the press is all hand wringing and scaring the shit out of voters by measuring CASES instead of deaths because the deaths are `1000 per day spread among 50 states. Thats 20 per state.

    So now we have to scare the bejesus out of everyone with CASES even though most of the cases are simply he/she tested positive, self isolates and has no symptoms or only a couple days of icky feeling before recovering.

    Lets blame trump for a virus that has decimated the WORLD, spread by CHINA, IGNORED BY DEMOCRATS because they were too busy impeaching Trump to be bothered and once that failed, well now lets blame trump for a virus released on the entire world.

    I no longer respect anything the lest does or says and if you look at Hollywood. Those people will be the first to do commercials for Chairman XI when China takes over America.

    The purpose of the masks is not to keep you from getting COVID-19, but to reduce the airflow of your exhaled breath , to keep it from projecting as far. The virus is contained in the moisture of your breath, and the masks can slow down — not stop — the projection, so that it falls to the ground closer to you.

    My darling bride — of 41 years, 5 months and 5 days — is a hospital nurse, and some days she gets assigned the COVID patients. Her small hospital assigns all of the COVID patients to a single nurse, to reduce the time the whole staff has to spend getting armored up in PPE. I always know when she’s had COVID duty, because she comes home, says not to touch her, undresses in the bathroom and immediately takes a shower. She does not want me to pick up her discarded clothing, but insists on doing so herself, and it goes straight into the washing machine.

    I do not doubt that this virus is extremely contagious; I simply disagree that the government has the authority to violate our constitutional rights to fight it.

    Masks only reduce the likely if transmission
    Looks like many posters here simply don’t understand that fact
    Lol
    Anyone still remember when our Dear Leader told us last March that many people believed that the virus would magically disappear in April when’s the weather was warmer ?
    The red states are where the virus is now spreading fastest

    • Est1950 says:

      Does anyone remember when Nancy Pelosi told us to all go down to China town and enjoy themselves?

      Does anyone remember when the Mayor of NYC said to go out and enjoy a drink at the bar with your buddies knowing the next day they were locking down the City because of the sniffles?

      Does anyone remember that Trump Tried to send the CDC to China while being impeached and China said no.

      Does anyone remember that China destroyed the evidence of the early times of this virus?

      Does anyone remember that the WHO said this is not a serous problem and is not TRANSMISSIBLE FROM HUMAN TO HUMAN back in January?

      Does anyone remember the Truth?

      • Bill589 says:

        Apparently Hairy doe not remember the truth. I’ll believe the doctors who say masks do no good, are even bad for us, and who have never lied to me, over the politicians who have routinely lied to me.

    The number of “cases” goes up, but fewer are hospitalized, and fewer die.

    You’d think even a liberal could connect those dots, but I see this is not the case.
