AMA Journal: Masks Are Bad For Your Kids. Quit Forcing Them To Wear Them; CDC Boss: Vaccinated are ‘safe’ from Delta variant, don’t need to wear masks, and other C-Virus related stories

AMA Journal: Masks Are Bad For Your Kids. Quit Forcing Them To Wear Them:
A new report published by an American Medical Association journal revealed forcing children to wear face masks leads to adverse health effects. JAMA Pediatrics, a top-rated monthly journal published by the AMA, found wearing face masks increases the amount of carbon dioxide in inhaled air to unhealthy levels.
The study measured carbon dioxide levels in 45 children ages 6-17 while wearing masks. The normal content of carbon dioxide in the air is 400 parts per million (ppm), with anything above 2000 ppm considered unacceptable by the German Federal Environmental Office.
The JAMA report measured averages of 13,120 to 13,910 ppm of carbon dioxide in the inhaled air of children wearing masks, which is over six times higher than the unsafe threshold. The study further pointed out this measurement was after only three minutes of wearing a mask. Children forced to wear masks at school find themselves wearing masks for hours, five days a week. --->READ MORE HERE

Vaccinated are ‘safe’ from Delta variant, don’t need to wear masks: CDC boss:
Americans who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus are “safe from the variants that are circulating here in the United States,” the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Wednesday.
“Here in the United States, we’re fortunate,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky told NBC’s “Today” show. “We have three vaccines that we know are safe and effective. We have two-thirds of the adult population that is fully vaccinated, and really quite protected from the variants that we have circulating here in the United States.”
When host Savannah Guthrie suggested to Walensky that “the bottom line is, the CDC still says if you are vaccinated, you don’t have to wear a mask,” Walensky answered: “That’s exactly right.”
Earlier this week, the World Health Organization (WHO) caused confusion by recommending that vaccinated people continue to wear masks and practice social distancing due to the spread of the so-called “Delta variant” of coronavirus, which was first discovered in India. --->READ MORE HERE
