A tweet by Dr. Scott Atlas, noting places with face mask mandates have seen an explosion in new cases (which is true), and quoting WHO policy, was deleted by Twitter censors for not agreeing with the official narrative (it’s unclear who or what determines the official narrative’s permitted by Twitter).
The tweet in question, posted Saturday by Dr. Scott Atlas, read: “Masks work? NO: LA, Miami, Hawaii, Alabama, France, Phlippnes, UK, Spain, Israel. WHO:’widesprd use not supported’ + many harms; Heneghan/Oxf CEBM:’despite decades, considerble uncertainty re value’; CDC rvw May:’no sig red’n in inflnz transm’n’; learn why.”
As best I can tell, nothing written there is untrue. However, it does not agree with the official narrative.
If face masks are not working well, is there a way to improve them? Better materials? Better instructions on proper use? Compliance in wearing is already 80-90% based on numerous surveys. Twitter is preventing any discussion on this – which prevents identifying solutions that could fix problems. But Twitter is treating the issue of face masks as an article of religious faith and questioning any part of the beliefs is blasphemy. Twitter’s action are a clear and present danger to everyone.
