Do masks really work? Can they help contain the spread of COVID-19?

Why does some data show that mask mandates in the U.S. and other countries did not prevent surges in COVID-19 cases?

Doug Badger, a visiting fellow in domestic policy studies at The Heritage Foundation, and Norbert Michel, director of Heritage’s Center for Data Analysis, join “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss these questions and more.

We also cover these stories:

  • The Trump administration announces broad changes to the plan to distribute approved COVID-19 vaccines. 
  • President Donald Trump stands by remarks he made at a rally before a mob breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, calling his comments “totally appropriate.”
  • Trump speaks out against big social media companies after Twitter permanently bans him from its site and Facebook announces that his account is suspended at least through Inauguration Day.
