Alex Jones openly opposed the idea of wearing a mask to fight the virus. Face coverings can significantly help reduce the risk of transmission.
Infowar host Alex Jones led an anti-mask rally with nearly 150 un-masked like-minded protesters in Texas. Jones arrived in an armored vehicle and led the protestors against the state and local governments' mask mandate. He said wearing a mask is a sign of slavery. He couldn't breathe with a mask on and is willing to fight for his right to ignore the scientific community's advice. In another instance, he can be heard telling a group of teenagers that Covid-19 is a hoax and was filmed yelling at park employees in Austin, Texas, for wearing masks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
