Bad Mask Data
Biden mask mandate won't save 130,000 lives because most already wear one.
The national mask mandate advocated by Joe Biden and others won’t save 130,000 lives by February because the vast majority of Americans already wear a mask in public, according to Phillip Magness in The Wall Street Journal. Bad data in a seminal study in the journal Nature Medicine is fueling the push, but would a Biden administration follow the science? Despite President Trump’s somewhat cavalier attitude toward face coverings, mask adoption to fight COVID-19 isn’t 49%, but north of 80%.
