Do you insure your house? The odds are 100:1 that it is unnecessary, but you still do it. If you've got a mortgage they compel you to do it. Why? Risk reduction.Seat belts - no guarantee, but you wear them, they reduce the risk of death. The recent extensive and official research show a proper mask reduces risk by about 60%. So what's your problem?Do you get angry when you see someone wearing a mask? Why? Who is the blind one then?
The ruling class are the weakest, most hypochondriac people ever to exist.
Are masks effective at preventing transmission of respiratory pathogens?In this meta-analysis, face masks were found to have no detectable effect against transmission of viral infections. (1) It found: “Compared to no masks, there was no reduction of influenza-like illness cases or influenza for masks in the general population, nor in healthcare workers.”This 2020 meta-analysis found that evidence from randomized controlled trials of face masks did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.

You are cherry picking. That is not the accepted view. Studies have broadened and data is available.Three months ago strong doubts were published, and trumpeted. Not so now.https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/who-mask-study-confirms-effectiveness-1.5607318https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/06/21/880832213/yes-wearing-masks-helps-heres-why
@Ches the wealthy travel but their lifestyle is the exclusionary.The health compromise would be how the use surgical staff and the addictions that compromise the immune system.Interesting that immigrants and detention camps have been excluded from Covid and the homeless.The reports have been everchanging, as is any virus.Viruses evolve and go viral.They are not undetectable are they?At Fargo this replies to your comment as well.I provided a study on masks from 2004 in crises.

"ConclusionTo maintain the functionality and capacity of the health care workforce during outbreaks or pandemics of emerging infections, HCWs need to be protected. This study provides new data, which will help developing policies for safe workplace environment. The study shows that the prolonged use of medical masks (>?6?h) and frequent clinical contact in healthcare setting increase the risk to health workers through contaminated PPE. Protocols on duration of mask use should specify a maximum time of continuous use."Availability of data and materialsThe datasets used and/or analysed during the current study are available from the corresponding author on reasonable request.Compilations 2003,2004,2007, etc.-Adenoviruses.
Rendering all masks ineffectual PPEs. Viruses evolve and are communicable.Viruses have carriers and antigen markers.It depends on the immunodeficiency and thecurrent appropriate medical treatment on anindividual basis.Pneumonias require quarantines.The point is and I may be wrong,they createdmore than health issues- world economies too.
@dedo do you actually believe such drivel? Are you truly so gullible, so credulous?
Absurd nonsense - idiotic stuff. You are just posting the idiocy of others.
Wearing a mask ( especially if done incorrectly ) will not guarantee you won't get sick. COVID19 can also transmit through the eyes and at least 50% of manufactured masks are completely useless if made in China. Masks may protect against droplets and still viral particles, known as aerosols can get through if in a crowded area.Nurses, doctors, and medical staff near infected patients have to use masks or any infected person whether sick or a carrier to avoid spreading the infection. Masks have hardly any use walking on the street and may even be deadly in hot and humid weather if you have asthma or MVP of the heart with either shortness of breath or palpitations. All viruses create mutations and actually may differ from location to location. Viruses also have a tendency to pick their weakest victims or if "IS" is low... the versions that can propagate quickest and replicate effectively in the body will be the most successful. However, viruses that kill rapidly or incapacitate patients usually don't transmit easily... COVID19 on the other hand has a longer incubation period and sometimes your own "IS" can ward off the infection.Genetic samples taken of patients in Wuhan suggest two main strains emerged initially, "L" and "S", where "L" was more prevalent ( roughly 70-75% ) and the "S" type was more of an ancestral version with known coding features. In short, "L" was more aggressive, transmitting more easily or replicating faster within the body sometimes depending on blood type. Still, the theory is not fully accurate and it's not clear if one version is more likely to spread or be more severe.In some cases, COVID19 is no worse than the seasonal flu and yet the mortality rate of hospitalized patients is more deadly. By all estimates, COVID19 has a mortality rate of about 1% and is roughly 10 times more deadly than the common flu. Most people who are not elderly and do not have underlying health conditions will not become critically ill from Covid-19. The increased respiratory symptoms are the problem for at-risk groups... health workers are in first place needing the best protection and if young people who get infected don't take precautions not to spread the infection it will worsen the trajectory of the outbreak.Technically a person has to be within 6' of an infected person to get ill who sneezes or coughs for at least 10 minutes or longer. Shorter interactions are also possible if not careful or if you touch contaminated surfaces. The genetic sequence of the virus was released long ago and yet any new vaccine produced in the next 6 months may still have unwanted side effects from one individual to another. Your best bet!Keep washing your hands often.Use sanitizer when in stores or mix your own.Wear a good mask in stores or crowded areas and learn how to remove it and clean it.Sanitize your phone, computer, door handles, car steering wheel, and shoes whenever possible.Have specific clothes for inside and out.Winter may be brutal... so prepare now. Wearing or not wearing a mask is almost like using hockey equipment during a game. When needed pads will protect you against pucks and hits while you still may get hurt and if you wear none you may get hurt bad.So use your head.The only issue is herd immunity... if this goes on too long with a continued lockdown this may worsen and immunity may drop for everyone.
Assumption 1: The Method of Counting COVID Deaths is Sensible and AccurateA grand assumption of the COVID plandemic is that the numbers are real and accurate, especially the death toll. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth. We have had confirmation after confirmation after confirmation (in nations all over the world) that authorities are counting the deaths in a way that makes no sense. Well, it makes no sense if you want to be sensible or accurate, but it makes perfect sense if you are trying to artificially inflate the numbers and create the impression of a pandemic where there is none. The sleight of hand is achieved by counting those who died with the virus as dying from the virus. This one trick alone is responsible for vastly skewing the numbers and turning the ‘official’ death count into a meaningless farce devoid of any practical value.
Assumption 2: The PCR Test for COVID is AccurateAs I covered in previous articles, the PCR test (Polymerase Chain Reaction) was invented by scientist Kary Mullis as a manufacturing technique (since it can able to replicate DNA sequences millions and billions of times), not as a diagnostic tool. COVID or SARS-CoV2 fails Koch’s postulates. The virus which shut the world down has still to this day never been isolated, purified and re-injected, or in other words, has never been 100% proven to exist, nor 100% proven to be the cause of the disease. When used to determine the cause of a disease, the PCR test has many flaws:1.There is no gold standard to which to compare its results (COVID fails Koch’s postulates);2. It detects and amplifies genetic code (RNA sequences) but offers no proof these RNA sequences are of viral origin;3. It generates many false positive results; and4. Even a positive result does not guarantee the discovered ‘virus’ is the cause of the disease!That is staggeringly useless! Here is a quote from the article COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless:“Tests need to be evaluated to determine their preciseness — strictly speaking their “sensitivity” and “specificity” — by comparison with a “gold standard,” meaning the most accurate method available. As an example, for a pregnancy test the gold standard would be the pregnancy itself. But as Australian infectious diseases specialist Sanjaya Senanayake, for example, stated in an ABC TV interview in an answer to the question “How accurate is the testing?”:If we had a new test for picking up [the bacterium] golden staph in blood, we’ve already got blood cultures, that’s our gold standard we’ve been using for decades, and we could match this new test against that. But for COVID-19 we don’t have a gold standard test.”Jessica C. Watson from Bristol University confirms this. In her paper “Interpreting a COVID-19 test result”, published recently in The British Medical Journal, she writes that there is a “lack of such a clear-cut ‘gold-standard’ for COVID-19 testing.”“Here is the admission about the PCR test by the CDC and FDA:“Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms …this test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.”Accurate would be about the last word I would use to describe COVID PCR testing, yet it is currently the standard test worldwide for COVID. Another magnificent example of many COVID assumptions. Go figure.
Assumption 3: The Antibody Test for COVID is AccurateIf you realized by reading the last section that the COVID PCR tests are flawed and meaningless, get ready for more absurdity with the COVID antibody tests. As I covered in the article COVID Antibody Tests: Here Comes More Trickery and Fakery, there are numerous reasons why the antibody tests don’t really work and can be interpreted any way you want:1. Old blood samples contain COVID antibodies, so if a test find antibodies, they may have been there for years or decades. There is no way to tell if they were recently acquired;2. Like the COVID PCR test, they generate many false positive results;3. They test for antibodies which may not even be specific for COVID;4. Antibodies don’t actually prove immunity, since there are people who fight off disease with little or no antibodies, and conversely, there are those with high antibody titers or counts, but who still get sick; and5. The results can be interpreted any way you want. The presence of antibodies could mean you’re safe and immune to future COVID waves, or conversely, it could mean you’re dangerous (sick and infected right now). It’s all about the interpretation.Hhmmm … all these COVID assumptions are not exactly reassuring, are they?
