Mus’, The data I was referring to has since been pulled from the CDC website. But it was a study done for the CDC and posted on their site.
It began by stating that the masks most wear today were never designed to do what they’re being asked to do today. They were designed for surgery and bacteria and to protect the patient on the table. They do absolutely nothing for the wearer. Then they tested what happens since the masks never achieve a good seal and air flows around it. They found that the test substance they put in the air was deposited on the filter material in the eddies created by the leakage and each time the wearer pulled it up and such it dislodged what had been concentrated on the mask. Since there is no seal the wearer got a concentrated dose by breathing it in. I had the study and never thought it would disappear but it was removed. What a surprise right? Can’t have a proper pandemic if people know what masks to use to stay safe.
Now with that information and experience… Wearing those masks sux. They don’t stay in place because they are held at the end and not from above so they drop and people are constantly frigging with them to get them back in place. What is one of the things we’re NOT supposed to do with our hands? Correct. Keep them away from the face. Couple that with the disappeared study and I make my case for my statement That wearing the current mask is more dangerous for the wearer than no mask at all. That was the conclusion of the study also.
There are masks that will stay up without constant adjustment and they are once again available for purchase. They tie up and at the top back of the head and don’t go around the ears. But even those are basically for show due to the nature of the filtration. There are masks that do a great job at filtration and one can wear them for hours at a time and never once adjust them. They have filters that lock in place and one uses them over and over only changing the filters as required (N95 & P95) when they get plugged. But they don’t follow the socialist agenda of everyone wearing the mask for others. They provide personal protection, but since they have an exhalation valve and the outgoing air is unfiltered they are a no-no. But they should have been used for the people at greatest risk along with quarantining them to keep them safe. But that wasn’t the point. Trump won and we needed to be taught we made a bad choice. Whitmer in MI has verified that by stating that the preventive measures would remain in place until Biden is elected.
Personally I think the chosen masks were chosen to get the death rate as high as possible. Yes, there are people in the go’vermin who are evil enough to do that. The Chinese could have been told to make us only masks that tie and don’t require constant adjustment. But that didn’t happen.
Then there is the other study that the CDC also pulled from their site where they categorically state that that the mask material itself can’t filter out flu viruses. I got a copy of that from someone here.
