- November 23, 2021  

The New York Times has published an article citing “experts” who say mask wearing is now “normalized” and could remain in place permanently even when the pandemic ends.

Titled ‘When Can the Covid Masks Finally Come Off?’, the article explores when it’s likely the restrictions will come to an end, but then concludes that mask wearing may never end.

The piece cites scientists who say the general public “should be prepared to put masks back on in the event of future surges” and that older adults should continue to wear them anyway.

“Do we all wear masks the rest of our lives?” asked Dr. Stephen Luby, an infectious disease expert and epidemiologist at Stanford University.

“Before the pandemic there was a stigma associated with wearing masks in this country, but I think it’s become normalized in a lot of places,” noted Dr. Linsey Marr.

As officials begin to ease mask requirements, experts warn that it will be safer to loosen restrictions early next year, after more children have been fully vaccinated and the risky holiday travel season has passed.  https://t.co/F8te5otLZv

“Experts also expressed hope that new mask-wearing norms might outlast the pandemic,” states the article, suggesting that face coverings will become permanent fixtures when using airplanes or public transport.

The article cites studies which claim to assert the efficacy of face masks, although it completely ignores other studies that have concluded they’re largely pointless.

A study in Denmark involving 6,000 participants found that “there was no statistically significant difference between those who wore masks and those who did not when it came to being infected by Covid-19,” the Spectator reported.

UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon dismissed face masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.

“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.

Even Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted that masks were pointless at the start of the pandemic, when he wrote that a typical store-bought face mask “is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material.”

   - October 21, 2021Vaccines currently are the primary mitigation strategy to combat COVID-19 around the world. For instance, the narrative related to the ongoing surge of new cases in the United States (US) is argued to be driven by areas with low vaccination rates [1]. A similar narrative also has been observed in countries, such as Germany and the United Kingdom [2]. At the same time, Israel...  READ MORE

   Preliminary data were collected from June 2006 through October 2009 on 715,000 patients, and 1.4 million doses (of 45 different vaccines) were given to 376,452 individuals. Of these doses, 35,570 possible reactions (2.6 percent of vaccinations) were identified. This is an average of 890 possible events, an average of 1.3 events per clinician, per month. These data were presented at the 2009 AMIA c...  READ MORE
