In the nation of 10.7 million, 6.7 million are considered fully vaccinated, while over 2.8 million have received a booster shot.

The majority have so far declined the booster, Czechs are starting to doubt the narrative.

The Czechs have faced down tyranny before, in 1989 the Velvet Revolution defeated the Communist Regime without firing a shot.

Not a single mask in that mob. Morons.

Absolutely beautiful!

Great example of the famous line from Dune “fear is the mind killer”.

The narrative that few to none are against these mandates falls apart more every day.

Only if you have an overactive imagination. As you have often claimed, protesters are not always right.

who is the expert I should follow for the situation in Prague?

just because they haven’t had the booster does not mean they have declined the booster. And you talk about narrative…

Bingo! I agree.

Anti-Vaccine . . . Pro-Covid ???

“fear is the mind killer”.

Yeah, a thousand people huddled together with no masks. Blowing whistles and shouting. At least they are in a group, makes them easy to avoid.

I see the majority are all wearing wooly hats though, afraid of catching a cold?

The vaccinated need to be protected from the unvaccinated by forcing the unvaccinated to be vaccinated with the same vaccination that FAILED to protect the vaccinated... say the "experts"

Czechs are waking up.

More like they want to stay warm.

Hats won’t stop a virus, but masks will.

Yes, that is a narrative that the “experts” often push. The majority of experts, however, are smarter than the “experts” and have never said the vaccines have failed.

Bingo! I agree.

Irrational fear is the mind killer.

The far right is fearless when it comes to a virus that has killed 5.5 million people, but are brainwashed to tremble at the thought of vaccines, asylum seekers, critical race theory, "socialism", the war on Christmas, gun control, and mail-in ballots.

Two are wearing police hats.

Quite a few more than two, and I think they are part of the protest as the mandates affect them too.

According to the science.

According to a former physics professor (who got fired for malfeasance), who in his opinion piece cherry picks old studies on mask use and influenza and common colds. This guy is not an epidemiologist.

@Haaa Nemui, thanks for linking to a legitimate and pertinent medical study:

https://med.stanford.edu/news/all-news/2021/09/surgical-masks-covid-19.html

A large, randomized trial led by researchers at Stanford Medicine and Yale University has found that wearing a surgical face mask over the mouth and nose is an effective way to reduce the occurrence of COVID-19 in community settings.

Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of health policy and infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, said face masks might not be as effective at stopping the omicron variant.

“Omicron produces more virus, even than delta,” Schaffner told Health. “So, the masks’ capacity to interrupt or reduce transmission back and forth is likewise reduced.”

This is an opinion piece, not science.

Based on science.

Try again. We’ve been over this numerous times, Bass; opinion pieces are not evidence of anything other than someone’s opinion.

Neither are yours, you show me proof of science as do I and then you decide which you want to follow. Many different scientifically researched viewpoints from both sides of the medical minds.

Nice self-own, Bass

Hardly

Completely different to “masks don’t work”

Thanks for clearing that up.
