This has been bubbling on a lot of the definitely extremist Instagram accounts I follow... the sheer amount of information they've been able to collect, interpret and lay it all out in one or two threads is insane. The idealist in me thinks that this overwhelming pile of (many times) clear video evidence and black and white malfeasance will finally lead to some break in accountability, that the floodgates will open, and some people will actually get fired.

The cynic in me, though, has already moved past the inevitable disappointment.

Great post, sarcasm directed at everyone who thought their cute lil ducky mask was making them a better person than those around them, not you.

I know what you are saying and agree with bullshit masks. A fitted N95 prevented me from getting COVID for sure on multiple occasions. And is just about 100% effective when properly worn.

One of the scariest parts of the pandemic for me, was our inability to scale production of the most effective means of protection from an airborne viral illness.

The nihilist in me still sees this as a terrifying demonstration of how to cripple the US and western world with a real dangerous biological agent. Many people have absolutely(and legitimately) lost trust in the public institutions dedicated to public health. I worry in the future, a slow mutating much more deadly biological agent will be a very effective weapon against the US.

Agreed on all points. Regarding the N95, yes, agreed, but, don't know how to read this but many of us in medical profession wore fit tested N95s, religiously, stayed home to "slow the curve", hell, many of us wore P100s, deconned properly, all that jazz, still got the OG variant.

Then, continued to wear proper masking, jabbed up. So, natural immunity that the government refuses to talk about, the jab, proper masks, still careful since my pop is immunocompromised, same with Maria's folks....

Got the Omnicron. Many nurses and docs I know, many are virtue signaling sheep that have faith in our lord and savior Fauci, followed the "rules for the greater good", still got ill, small amount ended up as admissions, even with all of that AND multiple jabs.

It's all a fucking joke bro.

I’m no virologist, but wouldn’t antibodies generated by getting vaccinated show up on these tests? I didn’t see anything on the page saying that they controlled for those proteins.
Well, the dudes in this article are, and they laid out the problems with the Bangladesh mask study- there are a lot besides the one you brought up.

Second looks: Peer-reviewed research questions mask study, finds hydroxychloroquine benefit

Just a quick disclaimer for all- I didn't make the study. I am not saying it is or isn't correct. I have looked at the posted studies and I understand what they're saying, but I won't defend it nor do I necessarily care if you disagree with the conclusions- hit up the science nerds that made it.
