Covid is much less contagious than originally thought (R0 is not the same as R, because 80% of people have some kind of innate immunity to covid-19 based on the data collected to date). Why is this not the biggest headline in the news?
Dr. Russell Blaylock, and Professor of Immunology and Molecular Biology, Dolores Cahill, PhD, speak out on the uselessness and dangers of mask wearing and lockdowns on The Highwire (video). Also a more recent episode of The Highwire with more mask studies explained. CDC Publishes Meta-analysis of Mask Studies: MASKS DO NOT WORK
And an even more recent episode of The Highwire did a live demonstration of CO2 levels of a child wearing a mask, showing over 7000ppm of CO2 in only seconds of wear, which is over the workplace safety limit of 5,000ppm established by OSHA. (YouTube banned the video but it’s on bitchute luckily!)
Dr. Alan Palmer also wrote a great article recently summarizing the pros & cons of masks.
Honestly the above sources are all you need but I have some other stuff below from before:
Aside from just anecdotes like this one, a study published in 2015 found that cloth masks can increase healthcare workers’ risk of infection. It also called into question the efficacy of medical masks. https://www.collective-evolution.com/2020/05/15/study-cautions-against-use-of-cloth-masks-because-they-can-increase-your-risk-of-infection/
Has anyone noticed the masks don’t cover your eyes, and don’t even fit your face perfectly, leaving gaps? Yeah, some people have.
And maybe you remember the CDC advice from a few months ago to NOT wear masks? Dr. Amesh Adalja, a scholar at the Center for Health Security at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health applauded the CDC’s recommendation on face masks. “Even during H1N1 [flu epidemic], there was no recommendation to wear face masks,” he said. They “end up creating a false sense of security and most people don’t wear them appropriately,” he said. Even after CDC flip-flopped, WHO still doesn’t recommend wearing masks unless you are sick or care-taking a sick person. YouTube claims to censor any info that goes against WHO policies, so they should be censoring all videos recommending public wearing of masks, no? And since WHO contradicts itself every other day, they should censor all WHO advice as well, no?
Stanford University says current masks may cause lung damage due to lowering oxygen intake. “But in filtering those particles, the mask also makes it harder to breathe. N95 masks are estimated to reduce oxygen intake by anywhere from 5 to 20 percent. That’s significant, even for a healthy person. It can cause dizziness and lightheadedness. If you wear a mask long enough, it can damage the lungs. For a patient in respiratory distress, it can even be life threatening.”
Once you’ve damaged your lungs from the mask, you’ve also damaged your brain: “Lung disease with chronic hypoxia has been associated with cognitive impairment of the subcortical type.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5619525/ (although hyperoxygenation might help reverse some damage).
People are wearing masks while driving, and dying in car crashes as result of lack of oxygen, say police.
“Seventy percent of the patients showed a reduction in partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2), and 19% developed various degrees of hypoxemia. Wearing an N95 mask significantly reduced the PaO2 level”
“Wearing N95 masks results in hypooxygenemia and hypercapnia which reduce working efficiency and the ability to make correct decision.”
“Dizziness, headache, and short of breath are commonly experienced by the medical staff wearing N95 masks. The ability to make correct decision may be hampered, too.”
“Chronic hypoxia-hypercapnia influences cognitive function”
“Hypercapnia status has been shown to predict mild cognitive impairment https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-35797-3
Finally, let’s keep this whole disease in context. We’ve never had such a dramatic response to a pandemic before. Is that because this pandemic is worse than previous ones? Let’s find out:
