Fake News = The False Prophet
Total Garbage. Without getting into the MANY negatives of mask wearing….
if there were any benefit to wearing a mask, because of the blocking
power against droplets and aerosol particles, then there should be more
benefit from wearing a respirator (N95) compared to a surgical mask, yet
several large meta-analyses, and all the RCT, prove that there is no
such relative benefit. Masks and respirators do not work.
This winter ,put your scarf, facemask , or whatever shield
thingy..take a big breath and exhale, all that steam you are going to
see , yes those are the “droplets” that you think you are protecting
yourself or others from.
After reviewing ALL of the studies worldwide, the CDC found “no reduction in viral transmission with the use of face masks.”
Similarly, in recent weeks, the World Health Organization also has
found that there “is no evidence wearing a mask by a healthy person in a
community setting can prevent infection with respiratory viruses,
including COVID-19.” And thus, the World Health Organization concluded
“universal community masking” is ineffective at preventing “infection
from respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.” Indeed, the WHO went so
far as to recommend against wearing medical masks as they “may create a
false sense of security” against COVID-19, while it took pains to
reiterate that there is “no evidence available on a [mask’s] usefulness
to protect non-sick persons.”
Even the N95 respirator, recommended for medical workers, requires
training to use properly and “without training, the masks could not only
expose workers to the virus but also lull them into thinking they are
protected,” according to doctors at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Yet worse, in practice, the N95 mask has been found to be ineffective
in preventing the transmission of viruses: a review of six clinical
studies, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found
that medical workers caught viruses from their patients just as often
when they used N95 respirators as when they used ordinary medical masks.
As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent
careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies
were analyzed, concluded:
None of the 17 studies established a conclusive relationship between
mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.
IF this were a real “virus” that is so deadly contagious you can get
it by standing next to another person (closer than oh, let’s say 6 feet
LOL), you would need to wear an entire Hazmat suit and breathing
