Minnesota doctor fired after he said that mask mandates in schools are useless
Lake Region Healthcare fired by a surgeon who said at a speech at Fergus Falls school that wearing masks is useless.
“The example of it is like trying to stop a mosquito with a chain-link fence, good luck.” said Dr. Jeff Horak on October 10th.
Earlier, Fergus Falls schools conducted a social experiment involving students of elementary schools in the county who were required to wear masks for two weeks. The parents were unhappy and protested against the mandate, however, the experiment found that the spread of Covid-19 does not depend on whether the children are wearing masks or not.
On October 20, the mandate ended and at the meeting it was decided not to renew it.
“I’m used to wearing masks, I’m not trying to do it while I’m running, or playing in the gym or all that other stuff. These masks, you want to stop the virus,” he said at the meeting.
According to official information, Horak has worked as a surgeon for over 16 years. However, his comments about masks and vaccinations forced the employer to terminate his contract.
Subsequently, more than 500 people protested in support of the surgeon.
