Toddlers in NYC are still required to mask at school or daycare.

Freak-out over case rates….and yet, if 20% of NYC really did have covid last month, then we have nothing to worry about from it any more, because the hospitals and support services were NOT even slightly overwhelmed!

JHU study on the effects of lockdowns. Worth the read. Basically we did more harm than good (which, duh).

School counselors on the effects of the pandemic response on kids.

Preprint: Study of inhaled carbon dioxide when wearing masks. For the TL:dr folks–the younger the mask wearer and the more active they are the more carbon dioxide you’re re-breathing, children in the study averaged 6439ppm after just a few minutes in a mask. The international standard for safe amounts? 5000ppm MAX.

In Kansas ’20, counties with mask mandates had higher CFR than those without mandates. An attempt to figure out why.

A while back the CDC did a “study” to “prove” that masks reduced covid cases in schools. It was a REALLY limited and badly done study. So someone redid it, looking at a bigger picture, with better controls. (spoiler, no evidence masks made a bit of difference).

A look at covid in children, study.

Quote: The cumulative rate of infection over the course of the pandemic was about 24 percent in the mandate states as well as in the non-mandate states. Their cumulative rates of Covid mortality were virtually identical, too (in fact, there were slightly more deaths per capita in the states with mask mandates).

  1. I echo Marianne’s thanks for your diligence. It did strike me as funny that the data labeled cities with populations of from 1,787 to 53,678 as “large cities”. That’s a bit of a stretch.

    • your comment got caught by my spam filter and I just noticed, sorry about that

      and yes, there was something funny going on there
