Are Face Masks Effective in Slowing the Spread of a Viral Infection?

`Facial masks, including cloth facial masks, to prevent viral transmission have only been approved for this use under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and FDA guidance states that recipients shall “have the option to accept or refuse the EUA product.” '  Other arguments include that the mask mandates violate fundamental individual freedoms, such as the right to life requiring the need to breathe oxygen-filled air, that are protected by the federal and state constitutions, including an individual’s right to informed consent and due process.

THE "EVIDENCE".  Studies supporting face mask utility have convincingly shown virus and bacteria travel but slower through face mask material than through air, ignoring the fact that aerosol particles escape out the sides and around the nose of the mask.   Other studies cleverly mislead people including this study, "Association of State-Issued Mask Mandates and Allowing On-Premises Restaurant Dining with County-Level COVID-19 Case and Death Growth Rates", funded and conducted by the pharmaceutical industry CDC, by ignoring the seasonal rise and fall patterns of viral infections and deaths and by failing to provide any comparison of its data of states having mask mandates to states not having mask mandates or states not allowing on-premise dining, i.e., ignoring the full range of the explanatory variables and assuming the truth of what it alleged to prove. Such uninformative pharmaceutical-conducted studies are used as propaganda by  media outlets funded by pharmaceutical advertising.

The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease... 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 facemasks 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."

The CDC’s Mask Mandate Study: Debunked March 2021. On the other hand, all human controlled trials, including those of hospital surgeons, medical staff, and lay persons have failed to show any benefit of mask wearing for slowing viral disease spread. However, by impeding the lungs' oxygen intake and excretory functions, masks reduce blood oxygen levels and increase CO2, bacterial, viral, and even fungal intake into the lungs and blood, thus, increasing the risk of diseases and cancers. US states and countries with no mask mandates, have lower overall average COVID death rates.

Study Shows How Masks Are Harming Children by Dr. Joseph Mercola February 2021

Dear Head Teacher – why my child must NOT wear a mask By Sonia Elijah February 2021. In conclusion: there is strong scientific evidence that mask wearing for extended periods by children/adolescents is extremely damaging to their health in many ways; masks have been proven to be ineffective in protecting against Covid; children are not ‘super spreaders’, countering the argument of teaching unions that teachers are at higher risk of contracting Covid from their students.

According to the European Centre for Disease Control,  fewer than 5 per cent of all Covid cases, not necessarily symptomatic ones, in the EU and the UK have been reported amongst children. A survey in their report found very little evidence of child to adult transmission. ... In Sweden, where there were no school closures for children aged 16 and under, the Public Health Authority has found that teachers were at no higher risk of Covid-19 than any other adult.

Judy Mikovits Q&A. Re. virus, vaccines, face masks,… 

In her new book, “The Case Against Masks: Ten Reasons Why Mask Use Should be Limited” (Skyhorse Publishing), Masks make people rebreathe their body’s waste. Dr. Judy Mikovits and coauthor Kent Heckenlively, J.D. explain that humans inhale is a mix of gases at various concentrations —nitrogen (79%), oxygen (20.9%), carbon dioxide (0.04%)— and what is exhaled. The concentrations of the gas differ substantially. We expel a quarter less oxygen, but a hundredfold more CO2, a waste product of metabolism, with each breath...inhaling high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) may be life-threatening. Hypercapnia (carbon dioxide toxicity) can also cause headaches, vertigo, double-vision, an inability to concentrate, tinnitus (hearing a noise, like ringing or buzzing, that’s not caused by an outside source), seizures, or suffocation due to displacement of air.” ... Masks make people rebreathe their body’s waste. ... On this fact, Dr. Mikovits makes another point: “Low oxygen levels can be caused by pneumonia, emphysema, smoking, and various heart conditions.” And since humans, in her words, “are oxygen hogs,” we need to breathe in as much oxygen as possible without interference. Mask wearing over long periods is clearly detrimental to our health.

Third, for those who wear glasses, masks represent a challenge that frequently leads to those glasses becoming fogged. This can be a challenge even for those with perfect vision during daytime flights when you need to wear sunglasses. Even with the built-in shades, it can get very bright in the cockpit at altitude. Consequently, wearing a mask while operating the aircraft compromises safety. With what we know about how air flows on aircraft, the risks posed by wearing a mask greatly outweigh the risks that come from not wearing one inside the flight deck.

MASKS October 2020. "One of the biggest controversies of the coronavirus pandemic is about face masks. Should we use them, or not; do they work, or not? People’s attitudes towards masks have become an intense political question, that in some instances have even led to violence... My own opinion regarding masks is that certain face masks, properly used, may be of benefit to medical professionals and their patients in controlled environments, such as hospital wards. However, to have the general public adopt universal mask wearing is of no benefit, and can lead to various harms. Up until April of 2020, this was also the position of the medical establishment--the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), etc. Then, starting in April, there was a sudden shift, as the medical establishment changed their tune... In ... this article, I will investigate the reasons for the original opinion of doctors and scientists regarding public mask wearing, and possible reasons for the shift we have seen..."

 Masks, false safety and real dangers, Part 1: Friable mask particulate and lung vulnerability  Boris Borovoy, Colleen Huber, Q Makeeta  Abstract  There is no biological history of mass masking until the current era. It is important to consider possible outcomes of this society-wide experiment. The consequences to the health of individuals is as yet unknown... Masked individuals have measurably higher inspiratory flow than non-masked individuals. This study is of new masks removed from manufacturer packaging, as well as a laundered cloth mask, examined microscopically. Loose particulate was seen on each type of mask. Also, tight and loose fibers were seen on each type of mask. If every foreign particle and every fiber in every facemask is always secure and not detachable by airflow, then there should be no risk of inhalation of such particles and fibers. However, if even a small portion of mask fibers is detachable by inspiratory airflow, or if there is debris in mask manufacture or packaging or handling, then there is the possibility of not only entry of foreign material to the airways, but also entry to deep lung tissue, and potential pathological consequences of foreign bodies in the lungs.

Maine’s Rise in COVID-19 Cases Linked to Face Masks Gov. Mills’ Face Mask Mandate Not Based on Actual Science. The Data Shows Prolonged Face Mask Use Increases Risk of Catching Respiratory Illness  By:  David Deschesne. Fort Fairfield Journal, November 2020

Masks Delay Inevitable Acceptance of COVID-19 Reality by Dr. Joseph MercolaFact Checked  November 2020.

  • The science does not support universal mask wearing recommendations
  • A policy review paper published in Emerging Infectious Diseases in May 2020 — the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s journal — found no evidence to support universal mask wearing as a protective measure in non-health care settings
  • A recent meta-analysis and scientific review — which focused on randomized controlled studies rather than observational ones — found that, compared to no mask, mask wearing in the general population or among health care workers did not reduce influenza or influenza-like illness cases
  • One study found U.S. states with universal mask mandates saw a 2% reduction in growth rates of positive COVID-19 tests compared to states that did not mandate masks
  • Another investigation shows mask rules have had nothing to do with infection rates after all, as no matter how strict the mask rules and how high the compliance, cases have risen and fallen around the same time

Are Face Masks Effective? The Evidence. October 2020; First Published: July 30, 2020. The Swiss Policy Research group. "So far, most studies found little to no evidence for the effectiveness of cloth face masks in the general population, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control" .... "In many states, infections began to increase after mask mandates were introduced. The following chart shows the very typical example of France. Other examples include California, Florida, Hawaii, Argentina, Peru, the Philippines, Spain, Italy, the UK, Israel, Japan, Switzerland and many more."

Is It Time for Full-Time Mask Mandates? Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

  • Despite claims of having a pandemic plan in place, and despite having conducted a global coronavirus pandemic response exercise a mere 10 weeks before the COVID-19 outbreak, planners appear to have overlooked the most important part of pandemic planning, namely researching and identifying the most effective response measures
  • Universal mask wearing, like the lockdowns, has no basis in science. On the contrary, the available scientific evidence near-conclusively shows that mask wearing does not reduce infection rates
  • Recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data reveal 85% of COVID-19 patients had “always” or “often” worn a cloth mask or face covering in the 14 days preceding their illness
  • Despite lack of scientific support for universal mask wearing, Dr. Anthony Fauci now supports a federal mask mandate, saying “the data on masks speaks for itself”
  • The World Health Organization encourages universal cloth mask use, not because they’ve been proven to work best but rather because they encourage “cultural expression” and “offer a source of income for those able to manufacture masks within their communities”

The Year of Disguises Roger W. Koops – October 16, 2020 "It boggles my mind when there is some notion that by wearing a face covering you are actually doing a “service” to your neighbor and therefore everyone has to protect everyone by this. Actually, the opposite is true. You are now becoming an additional potential source of environmental contamination. You are now becoming a transmission risk; not only are you increasing your own risk but you are also increasing the risk to others." ...  Roger W. Koops holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Riverside as well as Master and Bachelor degrees from Western Washington University.  He worked in the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industry for over 25 years. Before retiring in 2017, he spent 12 years as a Consultant focused on Quality Assurance/Control and issues related to Regulatory Compliance.
