This came in an interview with Trump in conjunction with another dialogue conducted by his Democratic opponent Biden, where he said: “One day soon, they came out with a statement that 85% of those who wear masks are infected with (Corona virus).”
Truth: Trump’s claim is wrong, the CDC study released in September did not mention that 85% of people who wear masks contract the virus, in fact the study did not even attempt to establish a percentage of that.
The study looked at the behavior of 154 people who had symptoms (infection with corona) and were confirmed to have the virus after a medical examination in July, in addition to 160 people who may have said that they have symptoms of infection but were not infected after examination, as the study found that 85% of the 154 people They said that they wore masks “always” or “often” during the 14 days prior to the examination, hence the number 85%.
As for the other 160 people, 88.7% of them said that they wore masks “always” or “often” during the same period before the examination.
These were the details of the news Trump makes dramatic allegations: 85% of those who wear masks develop... for this day.
