Published online 2020 Nov 22.Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesisBaruch Vainshelboim⁎AbstractMany countries across the globe utilized medical and non-medical facemasks as non-pharmaceutical intervention for reducing the transmission and infectivity of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Although, scientific evidence supporting facemasks’ efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological and health effects are established. Is has been hypothesized that facemasks have compromised safety and efficacy profile and should be avoided from use. The current article comprehensively summarizes scientific evidences with respect to wearing facemasks in the COVID-19 era, providing prosper information for public health and decisions making. ...ConclusionThe existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

Vinay Prasad, MD MPH 🎙️📷@VPrasadMDMPHAug 22Right now America is intoxicated on masking 2 year olds outside and inside ('cept when they nap - virus naps too) Soon we will be sober and look at what have we done. It won't age well, I promise.8:44 PM · Aug 22, 2021
Clay Travis@ClayTravis3hEngland has removed all mask requirements for children in schools.
Patrick sayshttps://sorendreier.com/list-of-30-studies-showing-face-masks-are-useless-against-covid-19/These are all good news, step by step the vaxxholes and maskholes narratives are crumbling.
In the realm of science and public-health policy outside the U.S., the implications of these particular findings are not exactly controversial. Many of America’s peer nations around the world — including the U.K., Ireland, all of Scandinavia, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy — have exempted kids, with varying age cutoffs, from wearing masks in classrooms. Conspicuously, there’s no evidence of more outbreaks in schools in those countries relative to schools in the U.S., where the solid majority of kids wore masks for an entire academic year and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Indoors, they linger in the air for hours to days depending on ventilation, making the 6ft rule pointless.
the health care system effectively abandons Covid patients until they are nearly beyond help.
“We had hoped to see the new statewide masking mandate make a difference in flattening the rate of infection, but we’re not seeing that yet,” said Peter Graven, Ph.D., lead data scientist in OHSU’s Business Intelligence unit.

Karloff saysthe health care system effectively abandons Covid patients until they are nearly beyond help. I strongly suspect that this is a deliberate policy to increase deaths so as to keep the fear going, sell more jabs, and increase Pfizer profits.
In sunlight, the virus is killed quickly by UV. Around 20 seconds, if I recall. Without that, I do not know how long it can last. I've heard days, but there are so many lies, it is hard to know for sure.
the days is a maximum and it assumes it has a surface to latch onto, plastic, cardboard etc
The Philly naked bike ride required masks this yearThe whole point of a naked bike ride is to throw off the shackles of authority and celebrate the freedom of the human body and spirit.Unless, of course, your free-spirited nudity goes against the moral edicts of our new woke religion and the patron saint of masks, St. Anthony Fauci.In THAT case, you have to celebrate throwing off your shackles by literally muzzling your face.You may be wondering how a thin cloth mask could possibly play any difference in viral spread when you're riding outdoors at 30mph with your bits and kibble flapping freely in the wind.Your problem is that you have a functioning brain.To save the public conscience from the horrors of woke bodies bouncing on bicycles, I will spare you of the video of the actual event.Sufficed to say, however, the majority of participants strapped a face diaper on as they let the rest of their bodies hang out for the world to see.
when you're riding outdoors at 30mph
Patrick sayswhen you're riding outdoors at 30mph Hol' up.. 30mph pedaling a bike? Down a steep hill maybe with the wind behind you. No way on normal terrain.
Sep 1st, 2021 12:13 pmA few weeks ago Forbes published an article by teacher and Columbia University Ph.D student Zack Ringelstein, warning about the harms of mask mandates for kids:"Masks and social distancing induce trauma and trauma at a young age is developmentally dangerous, especially for children who are experiencing trauma in other parts of their lives."In the essay, Ringelstein also argued that "children in masks who are socially distanced are more likely to lead a sedentary lifestyle at school and home, and therefore are also more likely to become both obese and depressed" and that "children in masks are also likely to miss out on critical language development, another fundamental area of growth in early years."It was a bracing article, notable for its unvarnished assertions about school mask mandates at a time when questioning those mandates is professionally and personally risky.It would appear that Forbes belatedly decided the same thing, because as of Wednesday, the article is... gone.

Any imbecile who runs a marathon while wearing a mask deserves to be ridiculed when the inevitable video of them collapsing is uploaded to the Internet.
