Although not only Americans but people all over the globe were forced to wear masks and endure numerous lockdowns, all in the name of public health and safety, it appears that booster shots, so-called vaccines, and masks did very little at stopping the COVID-19 pandemic. While most might already know this with science and data, a senior writer for The New York Times printed a newsletter on Wednesday that went against the COVID-19 agenda and noted the protocol and mandates did nothing. 

Not just an opinion piece, the newsletter compared the COVID-19 case numbers by voter status and area. Knowing that Democratic areas were more likely to wear a mask, get the jab, and follow the rules, writer David Leonhardt noted, “These factors seem as if they should have caused large differences in case rates. They have not. And that they haven’t offers some clarity about the relative effectiveness of different Covid interventions.”

The letter also dropped another massive bombshell against the current narrative by adding, “Nationwide, the number of official Covid cases has recently been somewhat higher in heavily Democratic areas than Republican areas. There is a strong argument for continuing to remove other restrictions, and returning to normal life.” 

It should be noted that many Democratic strongholds are still advocating for local restaurants to only seat at 40% capacity. In places like Miami, Austin, Texas, Nashville, Tennessee, restaurants are able to seat at full capacity and yet again, the case numbers are consistently better. 

While the articles criticized the COVID-19 mandates, it did note that areas that voted heavily for former President Donald Trump did see death rates due to the virus double. Still, the letter concluded, “If a new variant emerges, and hospitals are again at risk of being overwhelmed, then reinstating Covid restrictions may make sense again, despite their modest effects. But that’s not where the country is today.”
