The Director of the National Institute of Health (NIH), Francis S. Collins, announced his newest recommendations: wearing masks “at home”. This shouldn’t come as a shock, considering his last suggestion that small businesses should require vaccine passports.
What makes this announcement so alarming is that these are public statements from the Director of our National Institute of Health. Information like this influences mandates and restrictions created by mayors and small business owners, leaving a variety of different precautions and preventative measures from business to business.
Wear Masks “at Home”?
“Well, so yeah, you do need to think about it, and that’s the reason why the recommendations are for kids under 12, that they avoid being in places where they might get infected which means recommendations of masking in schools, and that at home, our parents of unvaccinated kids should be thoughtful about this. And the recommendation is to wear masks there as well, please follow up, uncomfortable I know it seems weird, but it is the best way to protect your kids”
Rand Paul Responds
Rand Paul responded “How can people who are so smart say such stupid things?”
“There is no science to defend putting your kids in masks or parents wearing masks—no science whatsoever,” Paul emphasised, adding “If there were, we would be wearing masks for years and years because for kids, the death rate is about the same as the seasonal flu. It may be less than the seasonal flu.”
The Senator continued, “So, is Francis Collins proposing that because the flu is with us forever that parents should be wearing masks around their kids that have the flu? It is absolutely and utterly without scientific evidence!”
“Now, they’re all freaking out right now about the Delta variant. One thing is—in all likelihood true—it is more transmissible, significantly more transmissible, but guess what? Every bit of evidence shows that it’s less deadly—significantly less deadly.”
“Public Health England looked at 92,000 people. If you were vaccinated and under 50, there were no deaths. If you were unvaccinated and under 50, .08%—still very, very small. So, it’s not an argument for not getting vaccinated. It’s an argument for not getting hysterical over the Delta variant,”
“We shouldn’t be changing any mandates and really, in all likelihood, the masks didn’t affect the trajectory of the virus at all. The only thing that’s slowing the virus down is the vaccine and natural immunity and they continue to ignore natural immunity because they think we are too far behind.”
“We got to vaccinate the children but, in reality I think it’s 90% of people over 65 have been vaccinated. That’s extraordinary. We should be celebrating,”
Rand Paul concluded , with a Tweet, that “the FDA has approved the use of COVID-19 antibody therapy” adding “Monoclonal antibodies can be given to elderly spouses or family members who live with someone who has COVID 19.”
Rand Paul, who was recently censored on YouTube also tweeted “Censorship by YouTube is very dangerous as it stifles debate and promotes groupthink where the “truth” is defined by people with a political agenda. If you want uncensored news, go to http://Rumble.com.”
Francis Collins previously lashed out against Senator Rand Paul back in May. Francis stated, “It’s really unfortunate that a lot of misinformation is being spread around here,” Collins insisted on Fox News. “Let me be very clear, we never approved any grant that would have supported gain of function research on dangerous coronaviruses to see if they could be more transmissible or lethal for individuals in the human species,” he added. “That was not something that we would have done … we never approved that kind of research and that’s something Sen. Paul might want to be a bit more clear about.”
It seems the Director of NIH may enjoy television publicity more than he enjoys true scientific facts. After all, it’s the existence of the coronavirus that have made people like Francis S. Collins, Peter Daszak, and Dr. Fauci, household names, when they previously were only known within the scientific community. As long as there are variants and restrictions, there is a demand for medical professionals such as Director Francis Collins. Bogus suggestions like this divert credibility and public trust from the organization responsible for $41.7 billion of American medical research annually. The term misinformation has become politically weaponized to reflect resistance against a particular stance. If not the National Institute of Health, who creates accurate health information and suggestions?
The future is immunity resilience, not encouraging fear and hiding behind a reminder of prehistoric preventative measures. In an age when mainstream scientific discussions of vitamins, minerals, and exercise have become near non-existent, media chooses to focus on “covering your face” as the top method for Americans to protect themselves. Why are Americans suddenly expected to blindly follow ridiculous authoritative demands that defy science?
