California COVID vaccine mandate dies, Bangladesh mask study and a new documentary
My latest at ACSH:
A new clinical trial examining the efficacy of masking on COVID-19 transmission has garnered a lot of media coverage. What the study shows and what people have been told the study shows are very different.
California just paused its plans for a statewide COVID-19 vaccine mandate. There wasn't an ounce of scientific evidence to support this proposal and enough opposition to halt the legislation, at least until after the upcoming elections. There's an important lesson here for policymakers.
We also made a documentary called Big Fears, Little Risks. I interviewed the director Azel James and the host of the film, Stranger Things Star Matty Cardarople. Listen to it here.
