New Yorkers aren’t that fast, your fascist Democratic leaders still want you to wear a mask.
Ashwin Vasan, New York City’s new health commissioner, announced that children under the age of 5 should wear masks indefinitely.
Reason? They’re not vaccinated, so he’ll put pressure on them, trying to get them to do the same, even though the data says they’re statistically not at risk.
In his first press conference, Vasan made the case for maintaining a mask duty duty for young children.
New York City’s new health commissioner sparked outrage after announcing that children five years old and younger should wear face masks indefinitely, halting a national trend of mask removal and face masks. There is a growing body of evidence that children are at low risk of contracting Covid-19.
Dr Ashwin Vasan said: “I think it’s indefinite at this point. COVID-19 briefings in Queens. ‘People who have been trying to predict what will happen in the future during this pandemic have consistently found eggs in their faces, as they say, and I’m not going to do it here today. “
This contradicts Mayor Eric Adams‘Promise this week, assuring parents that their kids won’t have to wear masks much longer.
The commissioner woke up, living in Brooklyn with his partner and three children, including a four-year-old son, arguing that he wanted to put masks on children because the kids weren’t vaccinated.
“But as a scientist, a doctor and an epidemiologist, I want to keep him safe because he’s not eligible for the vaccine.”
On Thursday, NYC Mayor Eric Adams was greeted by angry parents who told him to reverse the masking rule for toddlers.
On Thursday, Adams was confronted by angry parents who asked him to reverse the task of masking toddlers and telling them, “I get it. They will be unmasked.”
Parents who spoke to CBS2’s Thalia Perez shared that sentiment.
“We don’t want to wear them. And we have immune systems. This is what we are designed to do. We will fight it,” said Francesca Amodeo, resident of Middle Village.
“Children under the age of 5 must be able to breathe and have fresh air, not have to wear masks indoors all day,” said Andrea Cornea, resident of Central Village.
The new mask debate comes amid concerns about the new Omicron sub-variable BA.2. BA.2 now accounts for nearly 25% of new COVID cases in the US, and 39% in New York and New Jersey. Health officials say it does not appear to cause more severe illness, but data shows it is 30% more contagious.
“We are keeping a close eye on the numbers and we will continue to let you know what they tell us. At the same time, we know an increase in cases in other parts of the world can be worrisome,” Vasan said.
He encouraged New Yorkers to get vaccinated and stay healthy as the best line of defense.
With NYC’s newly awakened Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan at the helm, the Big Apple will continue to labor under radical ordinances and fear for the unforeseeable future.
I never thought I would see so many ignorant snowflakes in power.
