CDC head says masks are better than vaccine at preventing Covid spread as Trump sends mixed messages

President Donald Trump s’n own health officials continue to publicly contradict him when it comes to the coronavirus pandemicthis time on the importance of mask wearing.

In werklikheid, Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, testified that mask wearing may be a more effective protection against coronavirus than the potential vaccine that the President can’t stop hyping.
“Ek kan selfs so ver gaan om te sê dat hierdie gesigmasker my meer gewaarborg is teen Covid as wanneer ek 'n entstof teen Covid neem., because the immunogenicity may be 70%. En as ek nie 'n immuunrespons kry nie, die entstof gaan my nie beskerm nie. This face mask will,” Redfield told lawmakers during public testimony on Wednesday, adding that the American public has not yet embraced the use of masks to a level that could effectively control the outbreak.
The comment comes the day after Trump’s White House held a peace agreement ceremony with dignitaries from three foreign countries that largely ignored social distancing and mask guidelinesand the President awkwardly and baselessly namedwaitersas part of a group of people who don’t like wearing masks to prevent the spread of the virus.
    Despite the CDC’s repeated oproepe for Americans to wear face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Trump gesê during an ABC town hall Tuesday night daardie “there are a lot of people that think that masks are not good.
    Asked for a specific example, Trump said waiters.
    They come over, they serve you and they have a mask. And I saw it the other day, where they were serving me and they’re playing with the mask. I’m not blaming them. … They’re playing with the mask. … They’re touching it and then they’re touching the plate. That can’t be good,” Trump gesê.
    The President has occasionally donned a mask and said they’re important. But his actions send a different message to supporters: The White House and Trump’s reelection campaign have also disregarded the CDC’s guidance, state guidelines and local public health officials, permitting large crowds of rallygoers to stand shoulder to shoulder, not mandating mask wearing.
    Other top Trump administration health officials, including Adm. Brett Giroir, assistant secretary for health and human services, en dr. Bob Kadlec, assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services, also testified Wednesday to the importance of mask wearing in preventing the spread of coronavirus.
      After Trump questioned the effectiveness of masks on ABC, his press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, told reporters on Wednesday that the President hasalways supported mask-wearing.
      Yesterday he was pointing to a quote, that event Dr. (Anthony) Fauci has noted, which is that masks can have unintended consequences. While we support wearing them, and it’s patriotic to do so, the unintended consequence can be inappropriate usage,” McEnany gesê.
