And there it is, y’all – masks on kids forever, regardless of the science.
Which, for those of us who’ve been paying attention for the past nearly two years, comes as no surprise – particularly when dealing with government agencies that seem much more interested in prolonging their own power trips than in the safety and health of children.
The latest is straight from the almighty CDC and its director, Rochelle Walensky, who has declared that schools should retain facemask mandates for students even if those students are fully vaccinated.
“As we head into these winter months, we know we cannot be complacent,” Walensky said during a briefing of the White House COVID-19 response team, as the Biden administration announced it would soon begin recommending the COVID vaccine for children as young as five years old.
But getting the highly controversial “jab” won’t be enough to keep the filthy face diapers off your child’s nose and mouth, as the CDC is still recommending face coverings be worn even by students who get the shot and are supposedly protected against the virus with a 99% survival rate and which rarely impacts children.
“Right now, we’re going to continue to recommend masks in all schools, for all people in those schools,” Walensky said.
Children in school districts across the country have been required to wear masks in the classroom for two years, including during hot summer months, on playgrounds, and at athletic events.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, roughly 6.2 million children have tested positive for COVID-19 since the onset of the "pandemic," coming out to be around 8,208 cases per 100,000 children. However, only between 0.1% and 2% of all child cases resulted in hospitalization, and an even smaller 0%-0.25% of child cases resulted in deaths among all reporting states.
