Unmasking the Danger of Face Mask
Perhaps one of the most annoying – and wholly unnecessary – government-imposed mandates during the COVID-19 crisis is the increasingly widespread demand that healthy Americans wear face masks. Of course, just a few months ago, practically everyone in the elite medical establishment – from the Surgeon General to Herr Doktor Fauci as well as the CDC and the World Health Organization were advising against the use of face masks. Now, they have all shifted gears and we are being told that we must use face coverings whenever we leave our homes or enter stores. These mandates are usually being imposed by unelected and unaccountable county health directors without the approval of any elected body of lawmakers. While many law enforcement jurisdictions are refusing to enforce the mask edicts, some are and innocent individuals are being threatened with fines or jail time. And, what exactly is the science behind all this?
The truth is there is no scientific evidence affirming the value of face coverings in preventing the transmission of viruses. Recent studies have been unable to establish any conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection, according to nationally-recognized neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock. While it’s too early to report any studies related to COVID-19, it’s unlikely masks would be any more effective against it than against the flu virus. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams himself said in March that: “The data doesn’t show that wearing masks in public will help people during the coronavirus pandemic.”
