    Default Over 150 Studies Find That Masks Makes No Difference Stopping The The China Virus

    While this may be scientifically true, try telling the Linus's they don't need their blankies

    Good video. Worth the watch.

    As governors rush to reimpose mask mandates to fight the mild Omicron variant, hundreds of studies find that wearing masks does little to nothing to protect you from the coronavirus. One America’s Pearson Sharp has more.

    Dutch public health officials recently explained why they’re not recommending masks.
    "From a medical point of view, there is no evidence of a medical effect of wearing face masks, so we decided not to impose a national obligation,"
    said Medical Care Minister Tamara van Ark.

    “All these countries recommending face masks haven’t made their decisions based on new studies,”
    said Henning Bundgaard, chief physician at Denmark’s Rigshospitale, according to Bloomberg News.

    For the Record: Some Other info I ran Across


    OSHA document OSHA DOC 1910.134 Appendix D to Sec. 1910.134, part 3, "
    "Do not wear your respirator into atmospheres containing contaminants for which your respirator is not designed to protect against.
    For example, a respirator designed to filter dust particles will not protect you against gases, vapors, or very small solid particles of fumes or smoke."


    2015 web archive OSHA page
    https://web.archive.org/web/20150905...ic_health.html
    OSHA page that says this in part:
    "Frequently Asked Questions on Pandemic Influenza Preparedness and Response Guidance for Healthcare Workers and Healthcare Employers
    Respirators:
    A respirator is a personal protective device that is worn on the face, covers at least the nose and mouth, and is used to reduce the wearer's risk of inhaling hazardous gases, vapors, or airborne particles (e.g., dust or droplet nuclei containing infectious agents)....
    ...
    •Although some disposable respirators look similar to surgical masks, it is important that healthcare workers understand the significant functional difference between disposable respirators and surgical masks.
    •Surgical masks are not designed to prevent inhalation of airborne contaminants.
    •Surgical masks are not considered adequate respiratory protection for airborne transmission of pandemic influenza.
    •Surgical masks are also used as a physical barrier to protect the healthcare worker from hazards such as splashes of blood or bodily fluids.
    •When both fluid protection (e.g., blood splashes) and respiratory protection are needed, a "surgical N95" respirator can be used. This respirator is approved by FDA and certified by NIOSH."

    AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE EFFICACY OF GAUZE FACE MASKS
    W. H. Kellogg and Grace MacMillan
    Am J Public Health (N Y). 1920 Jan; 10(1): 34–42.
    doi: 10.2105/ajph.10.1.34
    "Abstract
    Masks have not been proved efficient enough to warrant compulsory application for the checking of epidemics, according to Dr. Kellogg, who has conducted a painstaking investigation with gauzes. This investigation is scientific in character, omitting no one of the necessary factors. It ought to settle the much argued question of masks for the public."
    Among other quotes in the study
    "The masks, contrary to expectation, were worn cheerfully and universally, and also, contrary to expectation of what should follow under such circumstances, no effect on the epidemic curve was to be seen. Something was plainly wrong with our hypotheses."

    "... Masks have not been demonstrated to have a degree of efficiency that would warrant their compulsory application for the checking of epidemics."
    —W Kellogg.

    Masking lack of evidence with politics


    "The Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine"
    which "develops, promotes and disseminates better evidence for healthcare."
    Connected with the University of Oxford

    "In 2010, at the end of the last influenza pandemic, there were six published randomised controlled trials with 4,147 participants focusing on the benefits of different types of masks. 2 Two were done in healthcare workers and four in family or student clusters. The face mask trials for influenza-like illness (ILI) reported poor compliance, rarely reported harms and revealed the pressing need for future trials.
    Despite the clear requirement to carry out further large, pragmatic trials a decade later, only six had been published: five in healthcare workers and one in pilgrims. 3 This recent crop of trials added 9,112 participants to the total randomised denominator of 13,259 and showed that masks alone have no significant effect in interrupting the spread of ILI or influenza in the general population, nor in healthcare workers. "
