More Real World Data Confirms Masks Are Useless
New data from the UK on mask usage is yet another nail in the coffin for masking
Masks refuse to die.
It was inevitable that once it became accepted wisdom among corporate media, corporate executives, public health authorities and politicians that masks worked, that mask mandates would become a permanent threat to society.
But as we’ve seen the evidence base accumulate over time that masks and mandates have been completely useless, from real world data to randomized controlled trials like the DANMASK study, there’s been a concerted effort to maintain the fiction that masks are necessary interventions.
The latest example comes from the UK, where the head of the National Health Service has already called for the return of “tougher” COVID measures:
Specifically, Matthew Taylor called for several “interventions” to be reintroduced in the UK to “protect” the NHS:
It called for stronger messages to the public on how to reduce transmission, including wearing the best possible face masks, and urging people to get vaccinated.
Taylor also highlighted the profound incompetence of many institutional medical professionals when he explained how removing restrictions doesn’t actually mean “living with COVID:”
“In our view, we do not have a ‘Living with Covid’ plan, we have a ‘living without restrictions’ ideology, which is different. We need to put in place the measures that are necessary to try to alleviate the pressures on our health service while this virus continues to attack.”
Before addressing his comments regarding masks, Matthew should be required to explain exactly what “living with COVID” actually means.
He says that the “measures that are necessary” should be put in place to help the National Health Service while the virus “continues to attack.”
So apparently he’s advocating for permanent restrictions on normal life…
How else are we supposed to interpret this?
Putting aside the glaringly obvious fact that the highest surge of infections in the UK happened while restrictions like mask mandates and vaccine passports were in place:
