Masks against Covid-19

The New England Journal of Medicine editorial on the topic of mask use versus Covid-19 assesses the matter as follows:

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection.  Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 20 minutes).  The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal.  In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.” (29)

Weighing risks versus benefits of mask use

In the summer of 2020 the United States is experiencing a surge of popular mask use, which is frequently promoted by the media, political leaders and celebrities.  Homemade and store-bought cloth masks and surgical masks or N95 masks are being used by the public especially when entering stores and other publicly accessible buildings.  Sometimes bandanas or scarves are used.  The use of face masks, whether cloth, surgical or N95, creates a poor obstacle to aerosolized pathogens as we can see from the meta-analyses and other studies in this paper, allowing both transmission of aerosolized pathogens to others in various directions, as well as self-contamination. 

It must also be considered that masks impede the necessary volume of air intake required for adequate oxygen exchange, which results in observed physiological effects that may be undesirable.  Even 6- minute walks, let alone more strenuous activity, resulted in dyspnea.  The volume of unobstructed oxygen in a typical breath is about 100 ml, used for normal physiological processes.  100 ml O2 greatly exceeds the volume of a pathogen required for transmission. 

The foregoing data show that masks serve more as instruments of obstruction of normal breathing, rather than as effective barriers to pathogens. Therefore, masks should not be used by the general public, either by adults or children, and their limitations as prophylaxis against pathogens should also be considered in medical settings.

 

Coronavirus: Face masks could increase risk of infection, medical chief warns

Members of the public could be putting themselves more at risk from contracting coronavirus by wearing face masks, one of England’s most senior doctors has warned.

Jenny Harries, deputy chief medical officer, said the masks could “actually trap the virus” and cause the person wearing it to breathe it in.

(Jennifer Margaret Harries OBE is a British public health physician who has been the chief executive of the UK Health Security Agency and head of NHS Test and Trace since April 2021. She was previously a regional director at Public Health England, and then Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England from June 2019 to April 2021.-

Widely shared posts from the summer of 2020, purportedly citing the CDC and U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, offered numerous claims but little evidence.

Scientific research over the last decade has showed without  any doubt that Masks are neither effective nor safe . They are  an environmental hazard  and when  not worn correctly they can spread infection.

The initial advice  and recommandations given by health professionals  working in health institutions  and politics was against universal mask wearing. 
What changed  decades of  research  and research virtually overnight ? 

Why is data  that is generated unscientifically at a press of a button via mathematical and computer models  given any credence ?

Media  and unqualified people eg. celebrities, politicians  , big tech companies are spreading dangerous  medical misinformation  written by unqualified people who seem to have little or no knowledge / understanding of  evidence based medicine, the basic principles of science and the golden stands of research.
And they claim it is 'followimg scince' .Who's science'

"During this pandemic, the term “science” has been used “ad nauseam”, that is, has been repeated to exhaustion: “Science, science, science”, “I’m pro-science”, “For from the science, through the science and to the science I guide my decisions and acts” and “I am, therefore, fully right to do so”. It is clear that the intention here is to lead all of us to the idea of ​​decisions based on something unquestionable and infallible, as scientific as law, as the law of gravity. " -

Groups of “science experts” or famous YouTube scientists, many of them still “beginners” in science, some of them with a minimal or no experience in fighting pandemics, are selected by the establishment and the media to give “scientific aura”)

Health professionals  should  follow evidence based medicine  and have patient's best interest at heart, 'First do no harm' . Advicing  and enforcing mask wearing  is unethical and liable to malfaesance for causing mental and physical harm especially to children.

They are symbol of a psychological chain of submission.


"A New York Times article reveals that some of the reasons people don’t want to give up their masks have nothing to do with COVID. “Masks have also become so much more than mere barrier between germs and lungs. They can keep that too-chatty neighbor at bay or help the introvert hide in plain sight,” the NYT says. “And vanity? Goodbye to that.”

The pandemic of 2020-21 brought trauma, and as people begin to emerge from their isolation and think about traveling, eating out and returning to school or the workplace, they are feeling confused. “Do they shake hands? Hug? With or without a mask?”

The Times article points out that it’s a confusion exacerbated by changing rules, state and federal, that vary by congressional district or even neighborhood, all while the very real threat of infection remains, in some places more than others."
