A new report commissioned by the Irish government has just been released a new report that reveals the obvious: children shouldn’t be required to wear masks at school.
The report found that masks for young children can lead to anxiety and language impairments. The Health Information and Quality Authority prepared it and released it in March. It was even used by Dublin’s local government in order to decide not to require masks in elementary schools.
However, the report is still being circulated as the United States is increasingly inclined to issuing similar mandates and forcing young people into wearing masks when they return from summer break.
It was also stated that COVID-19 transmission in schools is very low. This, combined with the fact that children are unable to properly wear masks, makes mask mandates a terrible idea.
Imagine you are a schoolchild and being told that you must wear masks for many hours each day. What would it do to you?
Popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed the contents of the study during a recent episode of his “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show, describing it as evidence of “child abuse” and describing masks as “moist paper burkas.”
Carlson asked about the benefits of forcing children to wear masks, citing evidence from the Irish government.
He also shared how the report revealed that transmission was very low between children. In the United Kingdom, the consensus was that face coverings should not be required for school children younger than 12 years old.
Tucker Carlson is more than a news anchor. He’s a voice for a large portion of the American people. The question is: Are the Democrats listening?
Will they take into account this report and apply the science?
