After the San Francisco Chronicle came out against mandatory masks, the death rate continued to climb, said Mak.
“An op-ed ran in the local paper w/headline ‘What’s The Use?’ after a man got sick despite following public health guidelines,” he explained. “A promised vaccine turned out to be bogus. Hundreds of citizens congregated on Dec. 16 to debate a masking order.”
On Dec. 19, he explained that officials voted down an order that would make wearing a mask mandatory.
“The dollar sign is exalted above the health sign,” the public health officer said, according to Mak.
“Citizens were arrested/fined for not having masks on, but widespread disobedience of the order continue & large numbers of citizens refused to wear masks,” said Mak, noting that the protests still continued.
The worst rate of deaths from the flu pandemic was Dec. 30. Finally, the council reconsidered their vote and passed the order on Jan. 10. A whopping 600 new cases were reported just that day.
