As we have been reporting continuously in the Trends Journal for months, there are no strong epidemiological studies or scientific evidence concluding that healthy people wearing face masks will significantly prevent the spread of the virus.
And the mainstream media, such as CNN, which began spreading the COVID Fear and Hysteria from the onset, even admitted (though buried deep in a COVID article on 9 April), that when “we combined the results of these trials that studied the effect of masks versus no masks in health-care workers and the general population, they did not show that wearing masks leads to any substantial reduction of influenza-like illness.”
In fact, before they were pressured to bow down and suck up to political powers, just two months ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) “officially” stated, “There is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19.”
The WHO recommends that only health-care workers working with people who have, or are suspected to have, COVID-19 wear special masks, such as the N95 or equivalent.
Dr. April Baller, a health specialist with the WHO stated, “If you do not have any respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough or runny nose, you do not need to wear a mask. Masks should only be used by health-care workers, caretakers or by people who are sick.”
Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, said, “There is no specific evidence to suggest that 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.”
In 2010, long before the COVID Fear and Hysteria began spreading, Cambridge University Press reported, “Influenza viruses circulate around the world every year.” They went on to note that “many national and international health agencies recommended the use of face masks during the 2009 influenza A (H1N1) pandemic,” and that “there [is] fewer data to support the use of masks or respirators to prevent becoming infected.”
Absent from all the mandatory mask-wearing rules are the scientific facts that flus and viruses can enter the eyes, travel to the nose, and then go into the respiratory system.
Primarily, we are being told to wear masks because an infected person who coughs, sings, or sneezes can spread the disease with respiratory droplets.
TRENDPOST: To date, more than 50 nations and some 16 U.S. states mandate wearing masks in public. If the health agencies are recommending wearing masks to prevent catching the virus in a public setting, why is it that people, whether alone or with friends and companions, walking down empty streets or driving in cars with their windows rolled up are wearing masks?
Why? Because most people listen only to the news channels and the politicians they believe in, swallow their sound bites, and are ignorant and/or closed-minded to the hard facts and data.
Another reason people wear masks is that psychologists say it makes them feel psychologically more protected.
