They don’t give a liquid shit about you or your family.
I posted a note in this space a week or so ago from my sister begging people to stop hoarding (that is, stockpiling more than they need) the highest quality N95 masks that healthcare workers need desperately. But this is the actual Surgeon General of the USA telling you to not bother wearing masks at all! LYING right to your face that they cannot protect you.
He should be forced from office immediately, along with the scum at the CDC and FDA who have worked so hard to prevent masks from being distributed and preventing doctors and independent companies from testing — for their own interests. While we’re at it, let’s just abolish the national government entirely. Who needs ’em?
Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS!
They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!

And now look! The MFer is still at it! (Unbelievable.)
1/3 Regarding masks:@WHO @CDCgov & my office have consistently recommended against the general public wearing masks as there is scant or conflicting evidence they benefit individual wearers in a meaningful way, but real concerns about pulling from the healthcare worker supply… pic.twitter.com/uvjT31ZGt7

Via the Great Jim Bovard: New York Times writer:
“Why Telling People They Don’t Need Masks Backfired”
To help manage the shortage, the authorities sent a message that made them untrustworthy.
Update: How has Japan kept Coronavirus in check? MASKS.
