Well, since Herman Cain is reported to have gone without a mask right up until the day of his diagnosis with Coronavirus, we may never know. Cain’s representatives said in a statement after the diagnosis that “there is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus.” So, yes, once an infectious disease reaches the pandemic stage, it can be very difficult to attribute the time, place, and manner of infection. A diagnosis nine days after the Trump Tulsa rally ought to make us all stop and think, though.
Herman Cain was a cancer survivor and has been quoted as feeling called to do something bigger, greater, more significant after his completion of cancer treatment. If you contribute to a call to reason and decency about mask wearing, sir, you will have accomplished that goal.
