A supposed medical study cited by the Biden administration to justify renewing mask mandates has been exposed as a fake.

The supposed study, conducted in India, was used by the Centers for Disease Control to make misleading claims that people vaccinated against COVID-19 were just as likely as unvaccinated people to spread the virus’ Delta variant.


That claim, which is false, was cited by the Biden administration in calls to mandate masks for vaccinated people.

The study in question was rejected after peer review, used a small sample size, and studied a vaccine not used in the United States.

The CDC’s misrepresentations did not stop there.

“Studies from India with vaccines not authorized for use in the United States have noted relatively high viral loads and larger cluster sizes associated with infections with Delta, regardless of vaccination status,” the CDC claimed.

The cited, debunked, study did not mention viral load.

The Biden CDC also made claims about viral transmission in vaccinated people that fell apart upon closer examination.

“We’re seeing now that it’s actually possible if you’re a rare breakthrough infection that you can transmit further, which is the reason for the change,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said.

But the claim that vaccinated people are as likely as unvaccinated people to spread the disease is also misleading.  

While one study found that in cases in which vaccinated people still developed a transmissible infection it was as transmissible as those not vaccinated, those cases amounted to a fraction of one percent of all vaccinated people, far less than in unvaccinated people.

Infection levels that low do not justify mask mandates, and if the entire population transmitted the virus at that rate the pandemic would end.

Maybe somewhat responsible, but his declining mental state hastens the day when he becomes totally lost. He is dangerously close already.
