      • Hey look: actual data! From very-red Tennessee!

        Areas With Mask Mandates Have Lower Covid-19 Hospitalization Rate, Study Finds

        Alison DurkeeForbes Staff
        Business Topline

        Covid-19 hospitalizations in Tennessee have risen at a far lower rate in areas that have mask-wearing mandates than those that don’t, a new analysis from Vanderbilt University researchers found, reinforcing evidence showing that face masks play a significant role in slowing coronavirus transmission.

        The study found that in Tennessee hospitals where less than 25% of patients came from counties with a mask mandate, hospitalizations as of Oct. 23 had risen by more than 200% since July 1.

        Hospitals in which 26% to 50% of patients were from counties with mask mandates saw hospitalizations rise by approximately 100% since July 1.

        In hospitals where patients came from counties where more than 75% of patients were under mask mandates, there was virtually no change in the level of hospitalizations since July 1, and hospitalizations only slightly increased in hospitals where 51 to 75% of patients were under mask mandates.

        The researchers note that areas that have mask requirements also have “greater changes in other community behavior” that could reduce Covid-19 transmission, so the lower hospitalization rates may not be attributable to masks alone.

        The researchers also make clear that with hospitalizations going up across the state, “masking alone is not a silver bullet” to prevent hospitalizations entirely.

        The Vanderbilt analysis also tracked mobility data and consumer spending habits and found that lower mobility was associated more with higher Covid-19 rates than stay at home orders, meaning people were less likely to go out if cases were higher in their area than if there were shutdown restrictions in place. As a result, the researchers concluded that “the best way to manage the economic fallout is to definitively manage the virus using proven strategies that can break chains of transmission.” “Only when transmission is reduced will individuals feel comfortable participating in activities that support the local economy as they did before the pandemic,” the researchers wrote.

        Big Number

        44,212. That’s the number of current Covid-19 hospitalizations in the U.S. as of Wednesday morning, according to the Covid Tracking Project, out of 465,777 total hospitalizations since the pandemic began. Covid-19 hospitalizations have been surging as cases have risen nationwide, and hospitals across the country are starting to face capacity issues, activate field hospitals and discuss how to ration medical care if needed.

        Key Background

        The Vanderbilt analysis is the latest in a string of studies to show that face masks play a key role in reducing Covid-19 transmission or reducing the severity of the disease, and health experts including Dr. Anthony Fauci have advocated for a national mask mandate as cases continue to rise across the country. Mask wearing has become a source of partisan controversy, however, exacerbated by President Donald Trump and his allies’ refusal to wear masks or impose mask-wearing restrictions.

        North Dakota and South Dakota, the two states currently experiencing the worst Covid-19 cases per capita in the country, are both led by Republican governors who have refused to implement mask mandates even as cases have soared. “Those who don’t want to wear a mask shouldn’t be shamed into wearing one,” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem wrote in an op-ed for the Rapid City Journal last week, citing sources that “question the effectiveness of masks.”

        White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said North Dakota had “the least use of masks that we have seen in retail establishments of any place we have been” in a visit to Bismarck Monday, calling the lack of mask-wearing “deeply unfortunate.”
        TL/DR: The more mask-wearing, the less Covid hospitalizations.

                Easy.
                They didn't rebrand flu deaths as COVID, thus showing that coronavirus doesn't even exist.

                  Maybe it's because French is your primary language, but that makes no sense at all.

                  I think (hope) he's being sarcastic.

              • Both of my parents were covid-positive, as well as my aunt, the family of my gf, my ex-gf and nearly an half of my unit I was working with every day.
                But thanks God and our medicine all of them are fine now and covid-negative as myself.

                    • Those people called idiots.
                      If I didn't wore a mask and there was no other precaution measures like checkpoints where their measure your body temperature every morning, I would have been be dead now.

                      • But thatnks to those and all other simple measures Russia has +20K covid positives every day now out of 150mil population, while USA has over +100K with popultation of 330mil.
                        And the death rates are not even comparable. It's like a day and night.

                        • As cases are rising in Europe and the US current WH folks stay the course:

                          White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has tested positive for coronavirus, according to two officials familiar with the matter, becoming the latest official in President Donald Trump's administration to become infected with the virus after a string of outbreaks in the West Wing.

                          Two other Trump staffers have also tested positive, officials said, lending further disquiet to an already-tense post-election White House.

                            I wondered what jobs Trump WH staffers could hope to have after they are expunged (Except for conservative commentator) ,,, I think medical school cadaver could join that list.

                          Denmark will cull all its mink - as many as 17 million - after a mutated form of coronavirus that can spread to humans was found on mink farms.
