Tam appeared to be awaiting permission from the China-controlled WHO to change her advice on masks.
Here’s what Theresa Tam recently said about masks:
“Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s chief public health officer, maintained in a press conference Monday that while face masks can cut down on the spread of the coronavirus when worn by someone already infected, it does little for healthy individuals.”
Here’s what she says now:
“Canada’s top public-health doctor says wearing masks is a way for people who might have COVID-19 without realizing it to keep from spreading the illness to others.
That’s a change from previous advice.
Dr. Theresa Tam says the change is due to increasing evidence that people with the virus can spread it without knowing they’re sick.”
Of course, you know very well that it has long been reported that people without Coronavirus symptoms can still spread it.
And it’s been known for a long while that the countries where masks are worn – Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, etc., have often done the best against Coronavirus.
In fact, as recently as about a week ago, Tam was still advising against widespread mask usage.
Now, she’s reversed herself, and it’s no coincidence that her reversal came right after the WHO changed their advice and recommended more widespread mask usage.
Tam has reversed herself over and over again during this crisis, saying the risk was low, saying travel restrictions wouldn’t work, focusing on ‘stigma’ as the biggest threat.
Eventually, Tam ends up with the right policies, but she gets there weeks – even months – late, by which time the virus has spread further and further out of control.
At this point, Tam’s performance is seen as a mixture of disturbing devotion to the China-controlled WHO, and stunning incompetence.
