  • Fox’s Kilmeade Pushes Back After Surgeon General Says Healthy People Shouldn’t Wear Masks to Fight Coronavirus

"We still have PPE shortages across the country", Adams continued.

This comes after Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus task force's response coordinator, said Monday the USA could be facing between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 even if "we do things together well, nearly perfectly". "There was a study in 2015 looking at medical students".

"If you want to put that aside for healthcare workers, we get that, but if it could actually help us, we would love to know", Kilmeade responded. "It can also give you a false sense of security and you see many of these pictures with people out and about closer than six feet to each other but still wearing a mask". He also noted how mask-wearing is a common preventive measure in China. "And the best way to make sure you don't run out of ventilators is to make sure you don't need so many people who need to get on ventilators in the first place".

"Seriously people- STOP BUYING MASKS!"

"They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can't get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!"

People who are sick should wear masks, said Adams, but acknowledged that if healthy people feel better by wearing a mask, "by all means, wear it" but they should not touch their faces. And medical students wearing surgical masks touch their faces on average 23 times.

Adams also said that N95 respirator masks aren't as effective for the general public as one might think, saying N95 masks "have to get fit-tested". "I have to make sure it's properly fitted and I have the right size in order for it to work properly", he explained.

"There may be a day where we change our recommendation, particularly for areas that have large spread going on, about wearing cotton masks but again the data is not there yet", said Adams.
