I am with Dr. Redfield. Wear your mask when you go out.

About vaccines and masks, Donald Trump is attacking CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield who with others testified Wednesday before a Congressional hearing on the Coronavirus Response.
The experts all back Dr. Redfield. For the general population of the United States, an easily available vaccine will not present until well into the third quarter of 2021 or maybe early in the second half of the year.
“I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against Covid than when I take a Covid vaccine, because the immunogenicity may be 70%. And if I don’t get an immune response, the vaccine is not going to protect me. This face mask will,” Redfield told Congress hours ago during public testimony.
Later in a statement, Redfield said, “A Covid-19 vaccine is the thing that will get Americans back to normal everyday life. The best defence we currently have against this virus are the important mitigation efforts of wearing a mask, washing your hands, social distancing and being careful about crowds,” he slid backwards.
Publics need to grasp the concept that even the best vaccines are not 100% effective. Far from it. Wearing the right type of mask well can fill the gap and if effectively worn, substitute for a vaccine until one is available.
Wearing a mask is in every human’s future. And it is not just about a virus, it’s about toxins in polluted air masses also. It’s about raging forest fires and runaway coal and other fossil fuel burning. It’s about Earth slowly failing in its ability to support human life.
The public needs to embrace the concept of wearing a mask to attain 95% efficiency at fighting the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It would be best if at least the most vulnerable persons were wearing an N95 medical mask. Watch the video below to learn what the World Health Organization says about wearing masks.
But if Donald Trump continues to lead Americans down a path where people are encouraged not to wear a mask and not to be vaccinated, the United States will plod along on its current path to a 60% infection rate or greater. The USA is already at around 20% infection and will likely have a million deaths in total by the start of April 2021.
- Since January FPMag writers said wear a mask. Who did not?
- Combat soldiers wear masks. You? Who is the Wuss? You?
- Who do I trust, Fauci or Trump? Should I wear a mask. Will I be OK? Critical & due analysis.
- Yes. Wear a mask. Wear a NIOSH N95 & be climate conscious.
Do you want to take some ownership of your family’s safety?
Get your influenza vaccine and have all the children’s vaccines brought up to date
Always wear an N95 mask or at least a three-layer cloth mask of three different weaves.
- You protect yourself from a lot of particulate matter plus the moisture droplets from the sneezing man who just bumped you. (Cold and flu viruses and various bacteria and even some parasites in moisture droplets expelled from one person can infect another person within a couple meters and sometimes more.)
- You send a protest message to everyone who sees you that you are conscious of exhaust gases from factories, cars and other fossil fuel burners and that you do not wish to breathe over 12µg/m³ of toxic particulate.
- In most cities of the world, your life expectancy will be longer with healthier enjoyment. See the report: Sharon Santiago
Wear a Mask to Mitigate the Impact of Air Pollution and to end the pandemic.
Here is how to don and doff your N95 respirator mask, especially when you have been in high risk areas. Most commonly used for Influenza prevention, these masks are effective according to the CDC in helping to prevent the spread of Flu, swine flu and avian flu transmission from person to person.
N95 masks are designed to fit over the nose and mouth of the wearer, and properly fitted can provide excellent protection for you and from you.Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds in a good soap before and after touching your mask. Using a hand sanitizer is an acceptable alternative if done correctly.
Hand Sanitizer Procedure
1. Apply enough sanitizer to completely cover both hands.
2. Rub hands together, palm to palm.
3. Rub back of each hand with palm of other hand.
4. Spread sanitizer over and under fingernails
5. Spread sanitizer between fingers
6. Keep rubbing hands together until they are dry. Do not dry
with a towel

Note: Total statistics for the United States do not include these offshore territories. The US Military is included as if it is an offshore territory, not reported as continental USA data but as USA overall totals and included in world totals. FPMag evaluates these separately for many reasons.

The American Epicenter including ALL Territories has 17.51 % of global 'active' cases (2,876,764 USA (incl territories) / 16,429,329 Global), people infected with COVID-19 now.
Abundant proof that vaccines are working, an observation derived from unrelated data analysis.
As the epicenter we look at continental USA together with US territories and without. The significant decline in Case Fatality Rate (CFR) in the continental United States particularly, during 2 0 2 1, since vaccines became available, is believed to be due to vaccination rates and is abundant proof that the vaccines are working.
In order to avoid letting countries that refuse to report the sum of case recoveries, thus skewing global calculations, Burundi, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Britain, most provinces of Canada, Ecuador, FaeroeIslands, Falklands, Finland, France, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Mongolia, Laos, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, South Korea, Tunisia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Spain and Sweden 'recoveries' are estimated based on the current reported global recoveries as a percentage of all cases. (([reported recoveries]) divide (550,329,302 [Global Reported Sum of All Cases] less 29,905,095 [France Sum of Cases] less 901,739 [Ecuador Sum of Cases] less 12,734,038 [Spain Sum of Cases] less 8,171,396 [Netherlands Sum of Cases] less 2,515,769 [Sweden Sum of Cases] less 3,617,629 [Peru Sum of Cases])) = 96% a coefficient which is then adjusted according to the number of cases in the past 30 days and the new coefficient is applied to the sum of each of these nation's cumulative cases to estimate the missing recoveries data. In the case of France some additional hospital-sourced recovery data is factored.
