Maybe they weren’t wearing their masks?

Probably coming to a town near you soon... not that I support that idea at all.
Could be, I don’t think anywhere in the US has explicitly done that yet, though. I’d have to think it would run into Constitutionality issues, though to be honest I doubt Governors having the power to basically indefinitely close businesses is technically Constitutional as it is. These Covid restrictions truly are potentially a slippery slope towards tyranny, especially as they drag on longer and longer. It was one thing when it was a month or two, but now we are at 7 months with no end in sight.......

Masks help to some extent, but they aren’t full proof either way.

In China they had 12 cases so they screened 3 MILLION residents of that city in 48 hours and will do the remaining 9 million by the end of the week.

This is how you snuff out chains of transmission. We have authorities striving to reduce testing. No wonder we are going backwards.

Arizona is starting to have a resurgance in cases. Arizona reported 1,185 new cases which is the highest since mid August.

I'm all for more testing but I'm not sure I would want the government knocking on my door to swab me whenever they please. I know that was not your point.

See to me that just doesn’t sound reasonable. Actually it sounds borderline irresponsible.

Well that's why they keep their numbers under a few hundred cases while we run 5 digit daily case increases DAILY.
There is a Lancet study that states that estimates have the false positive rate in the UK between 0.8 to 4%. Unless China has a much better test, false positives alone would run in the tens of thousands if you tested a high percentage of 3 million people.

China lied, again.

This is the problem with interpreting clinical trial data incorrectly. It can have big consequences, like viewers now believing wearing a mask is pointless.

Who did he hear this from and why has he repeated it twice?

As I pointed out in this thread, that’s not what this trial said. Now we have people that will stop wearing masks after hearing the president of the US say this. This only delays getting back to normal.
