States that have the most restrictive policies take severe economic losses, while those that do so suffer from mental disorders.
But don’t tell the politicians—they want more!
In the United States, there are many government officials who seem to be eager to revive the mask mandates, and possibly other pandemic artifacts, in order not only to remind them of their high-tide authority, but also because they want the public to see that the authorities have been able, with some success, restore the original purpose of these policies.

CNN’s Leana Wen, a CNN medical analyst says that “cloth masks are nothing more than facial decorations.” To viewersDec 2021 The CDC was also largely in agreement. admittingJanuary is the hottest month for “loosely weaved cloth products to provide little protection.” “Fitted surgical masks, K95 masks, and NIOSH-approved respirators (including N95s), are the best and offer the greatest level of protection.
