    In the past all respiratory viruses were symptomatic before the infected person could spread them. The infected person has a fever, congestion, cough or other symptoms. So it was easy to isolate the infected and break the chain of transmission. There are many ways to do this. And it's why in some places, like healthcare setting you are asked those questions and your temperature it taken before you're allowed to enter.

    But with SARS-CoV2 it is more infectious before the infected have any symptoms. So there is no way to isolate people that have it before they can infect others.

    So when Fauci wrote that email it was still assumed we'd be able to isolate those with symptoms and control outbreaks. However it was confirmed about 30 days after that email was written that SARS-CoV2 spreads asymptomatically. And later it was confirmed that it was less infectious after symptoms appeared. And then it was confirmed that it was actually the immune system response following infection that was what was really effecting people.

    So at that point it became important for everyone to wear even simple masks. Because they greatly reduced the asymptomatic spread of SARS-CoV2. Because they stopped the infected person from giving it to someone else. But yeah, freedumbs and all of that.

    But yeah, I get that people not capable of thinking for themselves would find that hard to understand. They just follow along whatever some authority figure in their lives tells them and claim they are thinking for themselves.

      That last paragraph is gold considering that you are preaching the msm narrative, so who’s really thinking for themselves

      Here is a meta-analysis of 54 studies including 77k participants on household spread (so masks aren’t a factor) that illustrates asymptotic spread is virtually non existent.

      Results  A total of 54 relevant studies with 77 758 participants reporting household secondary transmission were identified. Estimated household secondary attack rate was 16.6% (95% CI, 14.0%-19.3%), higher than secondary attack rates for SARS-CoV (7.5%; 95% CI, 4.8%-10.7%) and MERS-CoV (4.7%; 95% CI, 0.9%-10.7%). Household secondary attack rates were increased from symptomatic index cases (18.0%; 95% CI, 14.2%-22.1%) than from asymptomatic index cases (0.7%; 95% CI, 0%-4.9%), to adult contacts (28.3%; 95% CI, 20.2%-37.1%) than to child contacts (16.8%; 95% CI, 12.3%-21.7%), to spouses (37.8%; 95% CI, 25.8%-50.5%) than to other family contacts (17.8%; 95% CI, 11.7%-24.8%), and in households with 1 contact (41.5%; 95% CI, 31.7%-51.7%) than in households with 3 or more contacts (22.8%; 95% CI, 13.6%-33.5%).

        These number of  deaths due from Covid that’s reported is absolutely totally wrong!  I know of at least 10 people who died from heart attacks, strokes, cancer amd even on the news one died from being shot and murdered and all their death certificates said cause of death was Covid because they get thousands if death certificate said cause of death was Covid! Don’t anybody tell me this is a lie because I know this for a fact. 2 were very good friends of mines fathers. And all the others were my clients family and they were all horribly upset over it. And as far as spreading it being asymptotic has also been studied and it was maybe 4% and then couldn’t be proved that it wasn’t picked up on a surface rather than someone being asymptotic. Just my 2 cents of actual friends family members and my own studying  on the asymptotic aspect.
