Until now those who have been thinking wearing mask as the best way of protecting from getting infected to COVID is proved totally wrong. A paper published by the journal Medicine said: “The Foegen Effect: A Mechanism by Which Facemasks Contribute to the COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate”, concluded that “contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case”.
The National Pulse in a report said: “Mask mandates caused higher COVID-19 death rates, according to the bombshell claims made in a new medical journal report analyzing fatality rates across the state of Kansas.
The paper analyzed “whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas” during the time period of August 1st, 2020 to October 15th. Kansas was used for comparison because the state allowed each of its 105 counties to decide whether or not to implement mask mandates, with 81 counties deciding against the measure.
“The most important finding from this study is that contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case”, summarized the paper.
“Results from this study strongly suggest that mask mandates actually caused about 1.5 times the number of deaths or ∼50% more deaths compared to no mask mandates”.
The study suggested a rationale for the increased risk ratio. Virions – the infective form of the virus outside the cell – “that enter or those coughed out in droplets are retained in the facemask tissue, and after quick evaporation of the droplets, hyper-condensed droplets or pure virions (virions not inside a droplet) are re-inhaled from a very short distance during inspiration.”
The author’s theory, dubbed the “Foegen effect”, is that the masks make the COVID-19 virions smaller, allowing them to spread deeper into the respiratory tract.
“They bypass the bronchi and are inhaled deep into the alveoli, where they can cause pneumonia instead of bronchitis, which would be typical of a virus infection”.
COVID-19 data collected by the New York Times shows that the mandates had no impact on case rates. The Manhattan Institute’s City Journal published a graph based on that data comparing the cases in the 11 states that never mandated masks with the 39 that did.
While Joe Biden and his partner is the Biden-Harris administration have been repeating asking people to use mask, White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, in fact, told then Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell in a February 2020 email that masks “are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection”.
“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you”, wrote the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location”, Fauci stated.
Meaning, mask does not help any uninfected people. Instead it causes hazardous side effect.
Similarly, Fauci spoke out against universal masking amid a pandemic in a “60 Minutes” interview on month later. He warned of “unintended consequences,” saying there’s “no reason to be walking around with a mask” in “the middle of an outbreak”.
The executive director of the World Health Organization health emergencies program, Dr. Mike Ryan, said there was “no specific evidence to suggest that the wearing of masks by the mass population has any potential benefit”.
“In fact, there’s some evidence to suggest the opposite in the misuse of wearing a mask properly or fitting it properly”, he said.
The WHO at the time recommended people not wear face masks unless they are sick with COVID-19 or caring for someone who is sick.
Still some people are asking people to wear mask. Why? Are they helping mask manufacturers in making tons of cash?
