The corporate media complies with the disinformation on face masks, but occasionally stories leak out showing the detrimental effects that can result from prolonged usage, like this one where a man passed out while driving his car and crashed while wearing a face mask too long.
As businesses reopen, many are requiring shoppers and employees to wear a face mask. Costco, for instance, will not allow shoppers into the store without wearing a face mask. Many employers are requiring all employees to wear a face mask while at work. In some jurisdictions, all citizens must wear a face mask if they are outside of their own home.
Dr. Russell Blaylock warns that not only do face masks fail to protect the healthy from getting sick, but they also create serious health risks to the wearer. The bottom line is that if you are not sick, you should not wear a face mask.
“There’s a general view that the virus is everywhere and that anyone could be transmitting it … it causes a significant amount of stress and anxiety in people,” Evans said. “We now know that to get infected with this virus, you have to be in close contact with another person (and) that contact has to be for a significant amount of time. It’s not 10 or 15 minutes, it’s hours. It needs to be in a closed environment, a house, and in the environment, there has to be a significant amount of contamination.
The custom of facemask-wearing began in Japan during the early years of the 20th century, when a massive pandemic of influenza killed between 20 and 40 million people around the world—more than died in World War I. There were outbreaks of the disease on every inhabited continent, including Asia (where it devastated India, leading to the deaths of a full 5% of the population). Covering the face with scarves, veils and masks became a prevalent (if ineffective) means of warding off the disease in many parts of the world, until the epidemic finally faded at the end of 1919.
Face coverings now mandatory in all area commercial establishments for customers and employees
Public Health issues an order that goes into effect on Friday, fines of up to $5,000 for businesses not in compliance
“It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria,” Justice David F. Viviano wrote Friday, MLive.com reported. The court’s 7-0 decision vacated a lower court order that upheld the state’s attempt to close the Owosso, Michigan shop.
“I knew that traits from the so-called Dark Triad (narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy) as well as the traits subsumed within psychopathy are linked to health risk behavior and health problems, and I expected them to be implicated in health behaviors during the pandemic. There is also prior research suggesting that people high on the Dark Triad traits may knowingly and even deliberately put other people’s health at risk, e.g., by engaging in risky sexual behavior and not telling their partner about having HIV or STIs,” Blagov told PsyPost.
“I don’t question the need for a lockdown in March,” said Dr. Martha Fulford, an infectious diseases specialist and chief of medicine for the McMaster University Medical Centre. “But now we have more information. And two months in, we are at a stage where the harm from lockdown is starting to look like it is going to be greater than the harm from COVID.
“And that is the conversation I think we should be having.”
In the first big research scandal of the COVID-19 era, The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) today retracted two high-profile papers after a company declined to make the underlying data for both available for an independent audit, following questions being raised about the research. The Lancet paper, which claimed an antimalarial drug touted by President Donald Trump for treatment of COVID-19 could cause serious harm without helping patients, had had a global impact, halting trials of one of the drugs by the World Health Organization (WHO) and others.
Unemployment brought on by the COVID-19 lockdown could trigger as many as 2,100 extra suicides this year and next, predicts a new study whose lead author is calling on governments to re-open the economy faster.
The paper by University of Toronto researchers says action is “urgently needed” to prevent mental distress that could lead to hundreds more people than usual taking their own lives.
