US Senator Rand Paul has pledged publicly on Sunday to do everything he can to prevent presidential candidate Joe Biden from imposing a nationwide lockdown.

"I’m going to do everything I can to try to prevent Biden from locking us up and locking us down and forcing us to wear masks forever. We can’t go on like this forever," said Paul.

“Today, Biden’s talking more about a lockdown. This is absolutely why he’s going to be a terrible president if we get him. He’s going to ruin the country. Lockdowns don’t work. And in fact, all of the evidence on mandatory masks show that they don’t work either. There’s about 10 different countries or venues, maybe 20, that instituted mandatory masks, and every one of them to a T, the infection rate or the COVID rate went up after the mask mandate. Now, this is just showing that … all these mitigation strategies — washing our hands, staying 6 feet apart — they really don’t work, frankly. And the virus, as the Wall Street Journal put it, is insidious. It does what it’s going to do. The only thing that’s going to stop it is either enough immunity among individuals in the community or a vaccine.”

Paul also tweeted the following on November 12th:

"So @JoeBiden wants to lock us down and force everyone to mask up. Doesn’t anyone care to know if mask mandates help? The data on mask mandates actually shows an INCREASED rate of COVID cases after the mandates."

The Tweet then continues with a link to a study showing the lack of effectiveness of mask mandates.

According to the Washington Examiner, Paul has been a very strong critic of lockdown measures worldwide for some time now. He previously has said back in July, "I think we've made a big mistake in the lockdown. We've crippled the economy, but I don't know that we've done much to the virus."
