Analysis of the Effects of COVID-19 Mask Mandates on Hospital Resource Consumption and Mortality at the County Level

Objectives

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) threatens vulnerable patient populations, resulting in immense pressures at the local, regional, national, and international levels to contain the virus. Laboratory-based studies demonstrate that masks may offer benefit in reducing the spread of droplet-based illnesses, but few data are available to assess mask effects via executive order on a population basis. We assess the effects of a county-wide mask order on per-population mortality, intensive care unit (ICU) utilization, and ventilator utilization in Bexar County, Texas.

Methods

We used publicly reported county-level data to perform a mixed-methods before-and-after analysis along with other sources of public data for analyses of covariance. We used a least-squares regression analysis to adjust for confounders. A Texas state-level mask order was issued on July 3, 2020, followed by a Bexar County–level order on July 15, 2020. We defined the control period as June 2 to July 2 and the postmask order period as July 8, 2020–August 12, 2020, with a 5-day gap to account for the median incubation period for cases; longer periods of 7 and 10 days were used for hospitalization and ICU admission/death, respectively. Data are reported on a per-100,000 population basis using respective US Census Bureau–reported populations.

Results

From June 2, 2020 through August 12, 2020, there were 40,771 reported cases of COVID-19 within Bexar County, with 470 total deaths. The average number of new cases per day within the county was 565.4 (95% confidence interval [CI] 394.6–736.2). The average number of positive hospitalized patients was 754.1 (95% CI 657.2–851.0), in the ICU was 273.1 (95% CI 238.2–308.0), and on a ventilator was 170.5 (95% CI 146.4–194.6). The average deaths per day was 6.5 (95% CI 4.4–8.6). All of the measured outcomes were higher on average in the postmask period as were covariables included in the adjusted model. When adjusting for traffic activity, total statewide caseload, public health complaints, and mean temperature, the daily caseload, hospital bed occupancy, ICU bed occupancy, ventilator occupancy, and daily mortality remained higher in the postmask period.

Conclusions

There was no reduction in per-population daily mortality, hospital bed, ICU bed, or ventilator occupancy of COVID-19-positive patients attributable to the implementation of a mask-wearing mandate.

Masks are theater for the ignorant and stupid, and weapons of the dark state.  Ignorant because they are sheep and won't spend 15 minutes on the 'net to realize that the best of medical masks were not for toxic particulate mitigation and could never ever stop the spread of viruses.  Look up the size of the largest of virus particulates, and then the mesh size of N95 masks.  The lazy ignorant ones become the stupids because their particular lazy ignorance is their social bliss and proof they are all willing sheep and lining up to take the lemming plunge.   Whatever, too many American sheep that will kill us all over vile hatred for Orange Man.

He and all his disciples and ruling overlords are the true monsters of the 21st century.  It's bad enough how their lies and evilness have corrupted and co-opted the adult sheeple, but their souls will burn in eternal hell for the heartless crimes and suffering they are perpetrating on our children.

I like the woke-scolds on SM that equate the virus to getting peed on and how masks work like pants to stop that.

 

Then they make fun of you for being a Facebook Doctor.

 

 

Oddly enough I liked the mask.  Anonymous, and while I knew it did not stop anything dangerous it felt like a layer of just general protection from the animals I live near.

Pure nonsensical foolish feel-good theater for the fools. 

Worse yet, the use of masks only further supports the idiocy of sticking face diapers on children. 

Man up, be a lion and not a sheep, and just stop this sh*t once and for all.

I dont wear it.  I didnt mind it when it was mandated purely due to my disgust for my fellow man.  If they stopped farts and bad breath I would wear it every time I go out.
