Not Even N95 Masks Work To Stop Covid

    The Experts™” have repeatedly tried to deflect from the failure of their policies with misdirection.

    The reason lockdowns didn’t work in the United States or the United Kingdom is because they weren’t strict enough, according to many in the expert community.

    Of course, their excuses have been conveniently ignored as China’s repressive zero COVID lockdowns have continued, with horrific consequences.

    Now that mass protests have broken out in the country that “The Experts™” revered for their COVID handling, there’s a massive effort to disregard their own previous advocacy.

    This is perhaps best exemplified by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who clearly used authoritarian measures to suppress the protests in his own country, while now supporting Chinese demonstrations.

    The bewildering lack of awareness of their own hypocrisy seems to be a feature of COVID-obsessed politicians and public health authorities.

    Another similar, oft-repeated assertion is that the failure of universal masking can be explained by the type of masks being used by the public.

    Even though the CDC and Dr. Fauci explicitly claimed that wearing anything to cover your face would be effective at preventing transmission, many have now quietly dismissed that messaging.

    Fauci specifically said that “cloth coverings work,” not just surgical or N95s. Former Surgeon General Jerome Adams famously suggested that rolling up a t-shirt in front of your face would be effective protection.

    Yet public health departments and the media are now highlighting the importance of “high quality,” “well-fitted” masks.

    Their desperation to justify masking has led to remarkably poor studies being released to support their anti-science messaging.

    There is new research that has been released showing that masks are ineffective, regardless of type.

    And it’s not just new research, it’s high quality research.

    Finally, Another RCT on Mask Wearing

    The Annals of Internal Medicine just published a randomized controlled trial comparing the ability of medical masks to prevent COVID infection to fit-tested N95s.

    Importantly, this trial was conducted on healthcare workers who would be most likely to use masks appropriately.

    To determine whether medical masks are noninferior to N95 respirators to prevent COVID-19 in health care workers providing routine care.

    That trial design was also important as it was meant to determine whether or not N95 respirators were superior to “regular” surgical masks.

    They examined 29 different health care facilities on multiple continents, from North America to Asia and Africa.

    The percentage of healthcare workers testing positive for COVID in each group was tracked to determine how effective or ineffective higher-quality masking was in preventing infection.
