Major Study Finds Masks Don't Reduce COVID-19 Infection Rates

Ed.'s note: To make things simple all one has to know is that this WEF-directed global COVID operation is code for a corporate and banking communist takeover 3.0. To be more specific, a City of London sponsored corporate communist takeover. Only this time the communist takeover has technology behind the subversion. Do you submit? Put your mask on. The big question on everyone's mind right now is when do we go to guns?


A high-quality, large-scale Danish study finds no evidence that wearing a face mask significantly minimizes people’s risk of contracting COVID-19. The randomized-control trial found no statistically significant difference in coronavirus infection rates between mask-wearers and non-mask-wearers. In fact, according to the data, mask usage may actually increase the likelihood of infection.

"The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use," the authors summarized their results.

While mask-wearing has been advertised by health officials all around the world, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Danish researchers found that there was no statistically significant difference between wearing a mask or not in preventing people from contracting COVID-19.

"In the third post hoc analysis, which investigated constellations of patient characteristics, we did not find a subgroup where face masks were effective at conventional levels of statistical significance," researchers found.

The randomized-control trial, which is considered the "gold-standard" design for scientific research, had a large sample size of more than 6,000 people. Most studies conducted on various kinds of face masks against various coronaviruses are neither randomized, controlled trials nor conducted regarding the specific SARS-CoV-2 virus currently affecting the world.

Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers

A Randomized Controlled Trial

Abstract

Background:

Observational evidence suggests that mask wearing mitigates transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is uncertain if this observed association arises through protection of uninfected wearers (protective effect), via reduced transmission from infected mask wearers (source control), or both.

Objective:

To assess whether recommending surgical mask use outside the home reduces wearers' risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in a setting where masks were uncommon and not among recommended public health measures.

Design:

Randomized controlled trial (DANMASK-19 [Danish Study to Assess Face Masks for the Protection Against COVID-19 Infection]). (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT04337541)

Setting:

Denmark, April and May 2020.

Participants:

Adults spending more than 3 hours per day outside the home without occupational mask use.

Intervention:

Encouragement to follow social distancing measures for coronavirus disease 2019, plus either no mask recommendation or a recommendation to wear a mask when outside the home among other persons together with a supply of 50 surgical masks and instructions for proper use.

Measurements:

The primary outcome was SARS-CoV-2 infection in the mask wearer at 1 month by antibody testing, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), or hospital diagnosis. The secondary outcome was PCR positivity for other respiratory viruses.

Results:

A total of 3030 participants were randomly assigned to the recommendation to wear masks, and 2994 were assigned to control; 4862 completed the study. Infection with SARS-CoV-2 occurred in 42 participants recommended masks (1.8%) and 53 control participants (2.1%). The between-group difference was −0.3 percentage point (95% CI, −1.2 to 0.4 percentage point; P = 0.38) (odds ratio, 0.82 [CI, 0.54 to 1.23]; P = 0.33). Multiple imputation accounting for loss to follow-up yielded similar results. Although the difference observed was not statistically significant, the 95% CIs are compatible with a 46% reduction to a 23% increase in infection.

The Greatest Scam in History for Political Change

November 20, 2020 | by Martin Armstrong
I am here from the Government to Protect You

COMMENT: Hi Martin Now that coronavirus deaths have apparently topped 1 million people globally, which is over 0.01% of the world’s population, I've been wondering whether there are any other comparable threats to my life that the government is not protecting me from. I am troubled to see that a similar number of deaths occur across the globe from mosquito bites each year

In addition to this, according to the World Health Organisation 2.8 million people die every year from obesity-related illnesses.

In light of this, do you think that the wearing of mosquito resistant hazmat suits should be mandatory wearing all times during the summer months for anybody living south of the Arctic Circle and north of the Antarctic region? In addition to keeping mosquitos out, the head apparatus could be fitted with a very small feeding hole limiting calorie intake so that nothing is pernicious as a cheeseburger could get through.

As far as I'm concerned if it saves lives, it's a no brainer.

As always I am most grateful for your thoughts.

REPLY: Don't forget cars. Nearly 1.25 million people are killed in car accidents each year and nearly 2 million are disabled. Then all cars should be outlawed even if they are electric. People use to die also riding horses, so can't use them either. Hm. A major crisis because we obviously cannot achieve 100% safety. Then we eventually die and that impact 100%. So we should outlaw strokes and heat attacks as well.

This is all a scam to use this virus to change the world to Communism 3.0.
