Doctors Orders…Masks Don’t Seem to Do Anything

Well, well, well…a group of USC and UCLA doctors has let the cat out of the doctor’s bag. Apparently, masks don’t work.

The LA Daily News recently obtained a letter from a group of California doctors written to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. It said that it was clear from the data they’ve seen that infections continued to increase despite the imposition of the mask mandate suggesting limited or no efficacy of the mask mandate.

The doctors were looking at data that revealed after Los Angeles imposed a mask mandate in June of 2021, COVID  cases kept rising well into December. 

The letter goes even further, it cites the county’s statistics, and studies in Europe and some U.S. states, showing that after mask mandates were imposed, the transmission of COVID-19 did not slow down.

Jeffrey D. Klausner, one of the doctors, wrote that he “is also opposed to requiring children to wear masks in schools, saying that 70%, or more, of children attending school, have been infected or been vaccinated or both, giving them immunity from severe disease.”

The LA Daily News indicated that this letter may have influenced LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer to not require another mask mandate in July, even though she threatened to. 

The letter to the Board of Supervisors was part of a campaign to educate the board. It was signed by Dr. Jeffrey D. Klausner, clinical professor of medicine, population and public health sciences at USC’s Keck School of Medicine; Neeraj Sood, professor of public policy at USC’s Sol Price School of Public Policy; James E. Enstrom, retired professor of epidemiology at UCLA; Dr. Noah Kojima, senior resident for internal medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine; Dr. Catherine A. Sarkisian of UCLA’s Geffen School; James E. Moore, II, professor at USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering; Dr. Gabe Vorobiof, associate professor of medicine and cardiology at UCLA Geffen School of Medicine; and Avanidhar Subrahmanyam, professor at UCLA’s Anderson School.
