Six months ago Dr. Robert Redfield told the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee that healthy people should not wear face masks.

Dr. Redfield even tweeted about it.
CDC does not currently recommend the use of facemasks to help prevent novel #coronavirus. #2019nCoV is not spreading in communities in the US. Take everyday preventive actions to help slow the spread of respiratory illness. https://t.co/A2r88U6i1q pic.twitter.com/dw7ajtfMly

But like so much else coming from the completely ridiculous US medical elites they changed their mind a few weeks later.
A few weeks ago, Dr. Robert Redfield told the Senate Appropriations Committee that masks offer better protection from the COVID-19 China virus than a vaccine.
They changed their mind on that now too.
NEW: CDC Director Redfield to US Senate cmte.:
“These facemasks are the important, powerful public health tool we have … I might even go so far as to say that this facemask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine.” pic.twitter.com/7LJZ3U9xi1

Now there is evidence that masks don’t work very well.
CDC: 85% of COVID-19 patients report ‘always’ or ‘often’ wearing a mask.
Americans are wearing masks, but masks aren’t working.https://t.co/1DZKXDLuZx
