Just when millions of Americans breathed a sigh of relief, believing that the COVID War was over, U.S. federal health officials have urged the return of face masks for Americans due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases, which has been blamed on Omicron variants.
Health officials in the U.S. are monitoring a surge in COVID-19 cases that they say justifies about 32 percent of the population to start considering wearing masks again inside public places.
Dr. Ashish Jha, White House coronavirus response coordinator, said last week that the primary driving force behind these new infections was incredibly contagious Omicron sub variants, BA.2 and BA.2.12.1. (See “FACE MASKS: ENOUGH ALREADY,” “MASKS OR NO MASKS? THAT IS THE QUESTION” and “STUDY: MASKS HARMING CHILDREN.”)
"They are more contagious with more immune escape, and they are driving a lot of the increases in infection that we're seeing across the nation right now. And that is ... a huge challenge," she said.
He told “This Week” on Sunday that he believes that Americans should be wearing a mask when they are indoors.
“I feel that very strongly that in crowded indoor spaces, in places with high transmission, people should be doing that," he said. He said the government is considering ways to prepare for a wave of new infections in the fall and winter.
TRENDPOST: Selling more fear and hysteria in the reporting of jumping “cases,” never mentioned in the mainstream media is the fact that the day this mask mandate was issued, 18 May, the seven day average of COVID deaths was 304. Yet, one-year-ago-to-date, the COVID death rate was more than double with a 637 seven day average.
“The attitude is, ‘We’ve got this; we're over it,” Dr. Eric Topol, a professor of molecular medicine at Scripps research in San Diego, told the Times. “People should be getting booster shots. But there is no awareness.”
The Milwaukee Health Department announced on Friday that it recommended that residents dust off their old masks after the county moved into the “high” level of community spread. The School District of Philadelphia on Monday will also force all students and staff to wear masks during school and while riding on school buses and vans, 6ABC.com reported.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called for masks in 54 of New York’s 62 counties due to high Covid-19 levels, Syracuse.com reported.
New York City is one area considered to be high risk for transmission, but Mayor Eric Adams said he will not reimplement mask and vaccine mandates, the Times said. He said he will focus on antiviral treatments and at-home testing.
“I think that the reason we are here and we are not seeing drastic actions is because we’ve done an amazing job of telling people—vaccines, boosters,” Adams told reporters, at a recent news conference. “When I was hit with Covid, it was just a tickle in my throat. I was still able to exercise, didn’t have any breathing issues, no pain.”
TRENDPOST: The Trends Journal has kept subscribers up-to-date on the scientific data showing the fallacy of mandatory mask-wearing and lack of hard evidence that wearing cloth face masks offers any real protection from COVID.

TREND FORECAST: In the 30 March Trends Journal, we featured an article titled, “SPERM DOWN FOR THE COUNT, PENISES FALLING SHORT.”
In the article, we reported that Dr. Shanna Swan, a professor of Environmental Medicine & Public Health at Mount Sinai Health System, has warned that phthalates, a chemical commonly used in the manufacturing of plastics, can shrink penises and decrease male fertility.
And now, with more people wearing masks, the “penis-shrinking” trend is speeding up.
The National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health found that the microplastics used in the manufacturing of COVID face masks contain a number of toxic chemicals, including penis-shrinking phthalates.
