From Kathy Dopp:
The study is far worse than the author painted it in his article because the authors gathered and analyzed NO data for the same time period for ANY counties or state with No mask mandates! Given that the rate of any respiratory illness and deaths, including COVID, goes down seasonally every summer, and they never reported the actual dates of any of these mandates, it is highly likely that the case and death rates went down MORE than the 1.32% in counties and states having NO mask mandates and that did Not close their restaurants and bars!
So your statement the author made: “You read that correctly, they didn’t misplace the decimal: according to the federal government agency that is responsible for managing the COVID-1984 pandemic, the difference between mask mandates and no mask mandate is literally just a 1.32%.”
IS NOT SUPPORTED BY ANY DATA IN THE STUDY THE AUTHOR REFERS TO. For all we know, the No mask mandate and no lockdown states had far far LOWER COVID cases and death rates, consistent with most of the data I gathered all along, esp. in high density states!
The study is, thus, fundamentally logically flawed 110%. They could prove that the tides are not affected by the moon with studies like this that are done by pharmaceutical company shills.
