Joe Biden calls for mask mandates nationwide, according to Town Hall.
Reports of the effectiveness of face mask mandates have been retracted by its authors.
Cases of the virus have continued to rise in areas the researchers analyzed.

Biden says, “This is not about Democrat, Republican or Independent. This is about saving American lives, so let’s institute a mask mandate nationwide, starting immediately.”
More from Townhall:
Biden has billed himself as a leader in lockstep with public health experts. But that’s not particularly reassuring when so much of what the experts have said has turned out to be wrong.
The U.S. surgeon general, the World Health Organization and Dr. Anthony Fauci have all said face masks are not effective when it comes to COVID-19. But then the experts told Americans the coronavirus could be controlled in just a few weeks if mask mandates were implemented. Some places tried that, and the virus only seemed to spread faster.
And sure, it’s just one study being retracted. But it’s good to know science can still prevail when so much about the Wuhan coronavirus has been honed as a political weapon by Democrats and the liberal media.
