Important to note- CDC nor any other group is going to take responsibility for your inability to breathe while wearing a mask. Note from the screenshot below- the word “tolerate”. If you cannot tolerate- don’t wear. Breathing is absolutely the most essential bodily function.
Furthermore, I point out that as predicted there would be “more cases and restrictions” in the winter as in Minnesota at least, people tend to be inside more. This results in air circulation and that is why we have seasonal respiratory diseases that generally are reduced when people are outside more.
On a personal note- I was tested for vitamin deficiency, which is a very common problem in the Midwest and areas where people spend a lot of time indoors. Some people are also genetically predisposed to it, I believe. I was low enough on vitamin D that I was advised to supplement. This year, I have been noticeably less sick.
Mask mandates and a vaccine passport have gone into effect in some parts of Minnesota. This serves to compromise individual protected health information, it’s invasive, will hurt the economy in the cities where the vaccine passport has been enacted- Minneapolis and Saint Paul. These are also areas with high numbers of people of color. Once again proving that the credentials government says one thing and does another. More on this in another piece.
