Offering advice on how to be safe for the holidays, a CNN medical analyst acknowledged that cloth masks offer virtually no protection against COVID-19, describing them as “little more than facial decorations.”
Leana Wen, former president of Planned Parenthood, said people should attend “events that are safe and also the events that have fun for people, too.”
“We can’t be canceling everything, especially if we’re going to be living with COVID for the foreseeable future,” she said.
Wen advised anyone attending New Year’s Eve celebrations in Times Square or elsewhere to “make sure that you’re vaccinated and boosted, make sure that you’re wearing a mask even though it’s outdoors.”
In crowded places, she said, “a three-ply surgical mask” would offer protection.
But she said “don’t wear a cloth mask — cloth masks are little more than facial decorations — there’s no place for them in light of omicron.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
