As each month passes, we seem to get yet another study showing that medical masks are next to useless, and in bad news for mask zealots, a new study shows that they are better at making people sick instead of keeping them healthy.
The new study shows that constant use of masks helps instigate long COVID, not repel it.
Per Just the News:
Surgical and N95-grade masks might induce symptoms misidentified as biologically elusive “long COVID,” according to a “systematic review” in the peer-reviewed Swiss journal Frontiers in Public Health. It echoes a recent study of Norwegian adolescents and young adults on long COVID’s connection to “loneliness” and physical inactivity — conditions exacerbated by pandemic interventions.
A U.K. government metareview found no real-world evidence that N95s and equivalent masks protect those at highest risk of severe COVID, while a U.K. hospital study found “no discernible difference” from surgical masks in “reducing hospital-acquired SARS-CoV-2 infections.”
They join a metareview of several dozen randomized controlled trials, updated in January, that found surgical and N95-grade masks made “little to no difference” on either influenza-like or COVID-like illness or “laboratory-confirmed” infections. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky dismissed the study’s validity because of its reliance on RCTs.
Just the News went into more recent studies that proved that masking is at best useless and at worst actually unhealthy.
Except for a few months when governments were pushing masking as fake studies emerged pushing the government line, no studies before COVID and none since have proven that wearing masks are an effective means of preventing sickness.
You are basically a fool if you think wearing a mask will keep you safe.
