Rest of title sentence, “in a parallel universe far, far away.” Chart below is self-explanatory. But I will explain it some anyway. Masks. Don’t. Work. To. Stop. Community. Spread. Period. And I will have to guffaw loudly if I hear “but it could have been even worse”. I don’t think on this kind of chart you can go past vertical. Germany got kudos up the wazoo for their wonderful handling of the epidemic. Man, one thing that is for sure, when this thing wants to go, it goes. (Twitter Link) Oh, and look, Denmark’s mask mandate is working well too. Remember the Danish mask study that people derided. If you want any further proof that that study was absolutely correct, look at the second chart below. (Twitter Link)
And one more thing, California, with the most moronic lockdown measures of all, even on a population basis, has one of the worst case rises in the country. When are people going to wake up and realize these measures don’t slow spread.
