The NY Times finally admitted that masks don’t work, and it doesn’t matter what kind of mask you wear. It won’t work. This is the conclusion reached by the definitive Cochrane study. It took the Times a month to say something about it, but they eventually had to do it. We had this information from other studies, but this one sealed the deal.
The Times reports:
The most rigorous and comprehensive analysis of scientific studies conducted on the efficacy of masks for reducing the spread of respiratory illnesses — including Covid-19 — was published late last month. Its conclusions, said Tom Jefferson, the Oxford epidemiologist who is its lead author, were unambiguous.
“There is just no evidence that they” — masks — “make any difference,” he told the journalist Maryanne Demasi. “Full stop.”
But, wait, hold on. What about N-95 masks, as opposed to lower-quality surgical or cloth masks?
“Makes no difference — none of it,” said Jefferson.
What about the studies that initially persuaded policymakers to impose mask mandates?
“They were convinced by nonrandomized studies, flawed observational studies.”
The study canceled all doubt about what Anthony Fauci admitted two years before – before he changed his mind – masks don’t work.
The Cochrane Library updated its study on masks and handwashing. While handwashing slightly keeps the flu and COVID infection away, masks have zero effect.
Eugyppius says it surprises no one except the “profoundly stupid, the deeply disturbed, or the ideologically committed.”
The CDC still has not changed its tyrannical masking guidance for children. They don’t work, so why do they insist on continuing the charade?
Coat a table with oil based polyurethane while wearing a respirator. Then try it with an N95 mask. When I regained clarity, I had definitive results.
I still see the odd person in a car wearing a mask. I tell myself they are just worried about pollution. Prefer not to share the road with the disturbed. 15% still wearing in public, and I tell myself they have weakened immunity, so they wear masks as a good luck charm. Or they are thieves.
I had covid. It’s a cold. Sorry for those that don’t do well with colds. Life is hard sometimes.
I consider the Mask a gauge of measuring Mental Illness in America; I think it’s closer to 25% and even more in the Communities that vote Democrat.
A Bio Level III positive Pressure Full Face Mask or Hood with HEPA Filters and a Bio Level III Suit would protect you. To bad Wuhan was just a Bio Level II Lab.
