A research article published by the CDC in May titled “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures” has determined that face masks do not provide protection from the spread of a virus. Has anyone else heard of this article? Of course not, the media and elected officials are happy for you to follow their unsubstantiated and illegal mandates.
The article in question references 10 random controlled trials (which are the gold standard in scientific research) conducted between 2008 and 2016. Their conclusion was “In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks” and “Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”
They also stated “We did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.”
My own research has found that the COVID-19 virus itself is estimated to be approximatley one-third the pore size of even an N-95 mask, which most people are not wearing. N-95’s do offer limited temporary protection due to the static charge imparted to their fabric. Simply put, N-95’s are not designed for constant every day wear. While paper or cloth masks may stop virus particles that are suspended in moisture, that protection disappears as soon as the moisture evaporates. Masks also provide absolutely no protection for the eyes, which are also a major avenue of infection.
The truth is, we have been mandated by our betters to wear what is in effect a furnace filter over our face. What do you think happens when you wear an annoying dirty filter over your face all day, touching it constantly and rubbing your eyes? You are actually causing a greater spread of various virus and bacteria that collect on the outside of the mask. Masks worn improperly are actually worse than no mask at all. Since the research indicates that a properly worn mask provides no significant help, I choose not to wear a mask at all.
You are being fed lies by people who are either too inept or corrupt to care. Read the research for yourself and stop being sheep.
