Masking: No pro’s, just cons

The statement

“More Than a Dozen Credible Medical Studies Prove Face Masks Do Not Work Even In Hospitals!

The medical literature for the past forty-five years has been consistent: masks are useless in preventing the spread of disease and, if anything, are unsanitary objects that themselves spread bacteria and viruses.

Mandating masks has not kept death rates down anywhere. The 20 U.S. states that have never ordered people to wear face masks indoors and out have dramatically lower COVID-19 death rates than the 30 states that have mandated masks. Most of the no-mask states have COVID-19 death rates below 20 per 100,000 population, and none have a death rate higher than 55. All 13 states that have death rates higher 55 are states that have required the wearing of masks in all public places. It has not protected them.”

My take on it

First, the pro’s.

The main argument used to support masking as a public health measure is that they stop or significantly impede transmission of the virus from one person to another.The science does not support that argument.

I have also heard NSW Chief Medical Officer Kerry Chant say words to the effect that (notwithstanding the case against them) masks are still helpful as a reminder to the public to be on their guard. In all the circumstances that statement is ignorant, insensitive, and condescending. And against the public interest..

The cons?

Expired air is a waste product of bodily function. As Martin Geddes pointed out, to re-breathe our expired air makes as much sense as eating our own scat, or drinking our own urine or sweat.

Atmospheric air contains about 20.9% oxygen.  Expired air contains about 16%.  Atmospheric air contains about 0.04% (400ppm) carbon dioxide.  Expired air contains 4%, a hundred times more.

So the re-breathing of our expired air deprives our bodies of life-sustaining oxygen, and intoxicates them with CO2. Bad idea. Very bad idea. Some of my earlier posts indicate how bad.

And then there are the adverse impacts on social interaction, and particularly on childhood formation.

For a more detailed treatment , may I recommend The Case Against Masking by Dr Judy Mikovits.

Covid: “Nobody needs to be dying from this disease.”

The statement

“I would not say we have a pandemic.  I would say this disease has become endemic. …

It’s not the scary disease that everybody is making it to be, and it has effective treatment, and effective prevention.   …

We use hydroxychloroquine, ivermection, and we use ?azithromycin, and we make sure they take vitamin C, D, zinc … I think one of the biggest problems we’re having is the vitamin D deficiency, so make sure they get a booster of vitamin D.   …

This disease is very manageable, it is easy to treat.  ….

They are censoring us because we are saying the truth.  They don’t want to treat people, they want to sell vaccines.  I think this whole pandemic was made for the vaccine ?industry, and not the other way around.  I just wish people would wake up, and realise that.   …

Covid has effective treatment, and effective prevention .   Nobody needs to be dying from this disease.  We said that from Day One, and it is still true.”

My take on it

The heading to this clip says that Dr Immanuel has treated over 20,000 patients with hydroxychloroquine.   The oral introduction says that Dr Immanuel ‘has successfully treated tens of thousands of Covid patients.’  These numbers presumably refer to the Medical Centre where she works.  In the clip following, Dr Immanuel speaks of treating over 350 patients personally, including many that are advanced in age and with various co-morbidities, without losing one.

In some places I found the audio unclear.  Hence the two question makes in the text above.

“Nobody needs to be dying from this disease. “  That has to be great news.

Dr Immanuel just wishes that people would wake up.  So do I.
