CDC guidance isn't internally consistent
Yesterday the CDC released new guidance on masks. The new rules call for everyone to wear masks whether vaccinated or not. This is based on secret data that the CDC has thus far refused to release (citing "CDC COVID-19 Response Team, unpublished data, 2021"). They've promised this data "real soon now" but thus far they have not been forthcoming with this crucial information.
Let's leave aside the lack of any supporting data for the moment and just focus on the policy. So the original theory was that the "vaccine" (see more about why it's not really a vaccine below) would allow us to "return to normal". Now, however, the CDC cryptically says that those who are vaccinated are still catching and transmitting the virus. Thus, everyone needs to wear masks again.
The CDC wants everyone to get vaccinated but they acknowledge that this won't prevent you from getting or transmitting the virus. So how, exactly, will everyone getting vaccinated help? Their "logic" defies ... well ... logic if we're honest about it.
Since the vaccine doesn't stop the virus we want everyone, including those who are vaccinated, to return to wearing masks. And since the virus isn't stopped by the vaccine, the only logical conclusion is that we will all be wearing masks forever.
But let's not forget, if masks worked we would have crushed this virus the last time we went through this charade. If masks stopped the virus, we wouldn't need an untested, experimental vaccine.
The "vaccine" wont stop the virus (according to CDC's unpublished data). Wearing masks also wont stop the virus (as we've already proven for the past year). Where does that leave us?
The real answer is what medical professionals said from the beginning. We need actual heard immunity. And that comes from a majority of the population getting the disease (not a vaccine that doesn't provide immunity or masks that don't slow or stop the spread).
