WHO reverses again, says everyone should wear masks to stop the spread of coronavirus

The World Health Organization purports to be the world’s foremost authority on all things health-related, but the dizzying series of reversals on coronavirus makes it hard to know what to believe.

The WHO on Friday reversed earlier guidance that masks to slow the spread of the virus should only be worn by those that were sick or caretakers of those that were sick.

WHO director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced that the organization is now recommending that everyone wear masks in public when social distancing is not possible.

“In light of evolving evidence, the WHO advises that governments should encourage the general public to wear masks where there is widespread transmission and physical distancing is difficult, such as on public transport, in shops or in other confined or crowded environments,” said Tedros.

Though many in the US are already wearing face masks in public as a matter of course, Tedros also advised that not just any face covering is adequate for slowing the transmission of the virus.

Tedros advised people to wear a “fabric mask – that is, a non-medical mask,” that should consist of “at least three layers of different material.”

Though much of the world is emerging from coronavirus lockdowns, the New York Post noted on Friday that in some places, coronavirus infection rates are accelerating, indicating that the pandemic is not over. “[worldwide], the number of new cases topped 100,000 for nine of the past 10 days. In April, new cases never topped 100,000 in one day,” the Post reported.

    1. I’m with you Annette, so many different stories, they can’t all be true when they are all different on the same subject. We could get whiplash from trying to follow their instructions.

    2. Me too. This is the silliest, dumbest thing going on these days. It seems practically EVERYTHING IS BEING RUN BY SELF SERVING IMBECILES. And those imbeciles are WORSE THAN HITLERS GESTAPOS AND IF OUR GOVERNMENT HAD ONE IOTA OF INTELLIGENCE AND GUTS, ALL OF THIS IDIOCY WOULD BE STOPPED NOW.

      Criminal democrats and gutless republicans ARE our “Congress”. I’m sick and tired of all of this ignorance and idiocy.

    3. I agree Annette! Doctors are saying not to wear the masks anymore. Wearing them are decreasing our immune system. We are not getting the oxygen our bodies need when wearing a mask. I am just fed up with all the bullcrap.

    1. I do believe that practically no person running for office these days is honest OR intelligent. I believe they merely want the power and their EASY MONEY. I also believe it is time citizens re-organize our “GOVERNment” into something less dictatorial and more intelligent. Anyone agree or am I the only person blaming Congress for practically all of our problems and they are helped a lot by our unAmerican media.

  1. I will not wear mask. Don’t believe the CDC it any of you. You are just trying to control people until they kill themselves or someone else because of your controlling efforts.

  2. Much of the increase in cases is probably because more testing is being done so that those with mild to no symptoms are being found and not because of an increase from opening up the economy and life. Admittedly, so may be from exposure to someone who is asymptomatic that you might come into contact with in the course of daily life and you might be inclined to be symptomatic because your system handles things differently. I just think that the high increase that does not seem to be overwhelming the hospitals at this point has to be a result of testing and wish that accurate information would be published instead of scare tactics!

  3. Are you telling me this is what you get for $400+ MILLION DOLLARS a year? Another good reason to support PRESIDENT TRUMP;S action to defund WHO.

  4. I cannot believe the wishy washy attitude of the WHO! And in some respects the CDC! Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, put off surgery’s because of the virus, fear of going to the ED because of possibly being exposed. I am so over the scare tactics that have caused people to sequester themselves in their homes, shut down small businesses causing many to be in a position that leaves them unable to recover. Do authorities feel proud of themselves for destroying people? I personally will not be intimidated, I believe that the flu, even with inoculation available, is far more dangerous that the virus. I am over all this!

  5. the WHO cannot be trusted. do not listen to anything they have to say. cldnt care less except money we have been giving them for years.

  6. Fauci is a mad scientist, not a medical doctor! Hard to trust him or Birx or the CDC or WHO. They are all in this experiment together and we are the lab mice! I’m done with my mask unless there is a good reason to wear it.
