WATCH: CDC Director ‘Hopes We Will One Day Be Able to Get Rid of Those Masks’


CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said vaccinated people still need to wear face coverings, but “one day” we will “be able to get rid of those masks.”

“Are masks with us for a long, long time? Years? Forever?” asked CNBC’s Shepard Smith.

“The best way you can protect people with underlying conditions and people who are unable to get vaccinated is to get vaccines yourself … What we do know right now from the Delta Variant, is for people who have had two doses of the vaccine, they still need to wear their masks,” said Walensky.

“I do hope that with disease transmission coming down, community transmission coming down, we will one day be able to get rid of those masks,” she added.

CNN senior medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen made similar comments over the weekend.

“Those who are vaccinated, we now know based on the CDC, they are now able with the Delta Variant, because they carry so much virus, they may transmit it to their unvaccinated family members,” said Wen.

“I, for example, even though I’m fully vaccinated, my children are not because they’re too young. So now I have to be careful for my children because of all the unvaccinated people around us,” she added.

    Masks are pointless, 2 major studies one out of Yale and the other commissioned by the CDC both state that cloth masks are useless (less than .03% effective, a statistical nonfactor and below the margin of error) and best numbers for the surgical masks is 11.2% both studies had a very large sampling and very good controls.

    There’s a video of a painter wearing two masks: a surgical one, and a N95 over that one. He’s spray painting pretty heavily for a while. He then ends the video by taking the N95 off and showing the paint flecks on the surgical mask, and then takes the surgical mask off and shows the paint on his nose. Paint is a whole lot thicker than some “droplet” or a microscopic virus.

    Moral of the story. Masks don’t work.

    No, Tim. They don’t.

    Ps. And these people are paid how much to show complete incompetence over a simple PPE? Think about that. They are so stupid they can’t acknowledge that cloth masks don’t protect squat. It boggles my mind the morons running these companies.

      It’s not the morons running some of these big companies that concern me, it’s the whack job politicians who are all bought and paid for by these big corporations and control our lives through their completely moronic policies that are the elephant in the room that needs to be culled.

    This bitch has no idea how to promote a healthy mask culture to fight disease. There will never be a day when masks are not needed. Healthcare professionals aside, People should still wear masks in public if they know they are sick. This is widely done across the world. Distance from the weak and elderly, don’t go out unless you need to, and focus on getting better. It is very obvious when you get the flu. This is why I am against government social programs in the US. The country is run by retards who couldn’t tell you which way is up without lying or simply being wrong.

      Correction……….. “For sale to the highest bidder” morons would of been the proper term for all the cunts that reside in DC! That ball game the other day would of been the PERFECT opportunity for an A10 or F18 to accidently of had a Jdam or small nuke accidentally fall from it’s mounts while flying over that ballpark! My “big bang theory” on how our little universe here in the USA gets recreated!

    The best way to protect the public is to take power away from these people and punish them for their tyranny.
