Cindy ‘Baffled’ As COVID Infections SOAR in Mask Mandate New Zealand

Cindy says she is ‘baffled’ by New Zealand having the highest number of deaths and Covid infections than all neighbouring maskless countries, despite New Zealand maintaining strict mask mandates.

According to reports, nearby mask-free countries such as Australia have a tiny fraction number of infections compared to New Zealand.

Coincidentally, Singapore is the only other country with mask mandates and that country is also experiencing record-level infections and deaths.
Summit.news reports: Per capita COVID death rates in New Zealand also overtook Australia in March, despite its strict mask mandates, and have remained higher ever since.
“In Singapore, death rates dropped below Australia in April after racing ahead between October and Christmas, but are now surging wildly and are set to overtake Australia once more,” reports the Daily Mail.

“Of course, this is only the latest example that shows masks do little or nothing to prevent the spread of airborne viruses, and may make things worse,” writes Will Jones.

“The astonishing data that may prove masks DON’T work”
Not very astonishing, but more acknowledgement is welcome.

The UK government’s own investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

We previously reported on the comments of UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon, who dismissed masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.

“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.

A study in Denmark involving 6,000 participants also found that “there was no statistically significant difference between those who wore masks and those who did not when it came to being infected by Covid-19,” the Spectator reported.

Despite overwhelming data that masks are useless or may even exacerbate the problem, some countries are already preparing to re-introduce them.

As we highlighted on Monday, Germany is set to re-impose its mask mandate in September despite the summer COVID wave already “losing momentum,” indicating such rules are being made permanent.

How Face Masks Make You Sick Instead Of Protecting You

Written by Dr Joseph Mercola

During the COVID-19 pandemic, 80 percent of U.S. states mandated masks to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2, but accumulating research shows mask mandates and use do not lower the spread of the virus.

While rules requiring masks did increase compliance, they didn’t translate to lower transmission growth rates, whether community spread of SARS-CoV-2 was low or high.

Even before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, mask mandates were put in place without ever properly evaluating efficacy, but that didn’t stop them from dividing communities and being used as a form of virtue signaling and a visible reminder of compliance with the “new normal.”

Now, with research showing not only that masks don’t protect you but may actually make you sick, the rationale behind their widespread mandated usage must be questioned.

Mask Mandates Didn’t Lower COVID-19 Cases

Using CDC data, researchers with the University of Louisville calculated total COVID-19 case growth and mask use for the U.S. No significant differences were found in case growth between mandate and non-mandate states during periods of low or high transmission.
“Surges were equivocal,” they noted, concluding, “Mask mandates and use are not associated with slower state-level COVID-19 spread during COVID-19 growth surges.” While stating that their findings “do not support the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates decrease with greater public mask use,” they did note that “masks may promote social cohesion as rallying symbols during a pandemic.”

Similarly dismal results from mask mandates were demonstrated in Europe. A study published in Cureus analyzed data from 35 European countries, including morbidity, mortality and mask usage, over a six-month period. The researchers noted:

“Mask mandates were implemented in almost all world countries and in most places where masks were not obligatory, their use in public spaces was recommended …

These mandates and recommendations took place despite the fact that most randomized controlled trials carried out before and during the COVID-19 pandemic concluded that the role of masks in preventing respiratory viral transmission was small, null, or inconclusive.”

When the data were analyzed, the study also revealed that the widespread use of masks did not reduce COVID-19 transmission. Worse, a moderate positive correlation was found between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe, which “suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences.”

Mask Mandates In Schools Didn’t Reduce COVID-19 Cases

As part of the government-sponsored propaganda campaign, a widely cited CDC study, published in October 2021, reported that counties without school mask mandates had larger increases in COVID-19 case rates in children after the start of school compared with counties that had school mask mandates.

The study was used to support school mask mandates, but a team of researchers revisited the research, incorporating a larger sample size and longer study period. The updated study, published in May 2022, used nearly six times more data compared to the original study and found no significant relationship between mask mandates in U.S. schools and COVID-19 case rates. According to the researchers:

“We failed to establish a relationship between school masking and pediatric cases using the same methods but a larger, more nationally diverse population over a longer interval.

Our study demonstrates that observational studies of interventions with small to moderate effect sizes are prone to bias caused by selection and omitted variables. Randomized studies can more reliably inform public health policy.”

On Twitter, surgeon and public policy researcher Dr. Marty Makary pointed out that the CDC’s original study appeared to include cherry-picked data and the agency refused to publish an update using the more extensive data:

“This study demonstrates how the CDC was cherry-picking data to support their school mask dogma.

The article states that CDC’s MMWR journal rejected publishing this re-analysis. Most likely because it exposed the CDCs salami-slicing of data & use of science as political propaganda.

It should be noted that a previous CDC study found mask requirements for students had little effect on COVID-19 incidence in Georgia schools, while improved ventilation, such as opening a window, reduced cases more than mask mandates for staff and teachers.

The Foegen Effect: Mask Mandates Increased COVID-19 Deaths

A profoundly important study was conducted by German physician Dr. Zacharias Fögen to find out whether mandatory mask use influenced the COVID-19 case fatality rate in Kansas from August 1, 2020, to October 15, 2020. He chose the state of Kansas because, while it issued a mask mandate, counties were allowed to either opt in or out of it.

His analysis revealed that counties with a mask mandate had significantly higher case fatality rates than counties without a mask mandate. “These findings suggest that mask use might pose a yet unknown threat to the user instead of protecting them, making mask mandates a debatable epidemiologic intervention,” he concluded.

That threat, he explained, may be something called the “Foegen effect” — the idea that deep re-inhalation of droplets and virions caught on facemasks might make COVID-19 infection more likely or more severe.

“The fundamentals of this effect are easily demonstrated when wearing a facemask and glasses at the same time by pulling the upper edge of the mask over the lower edge of the glasses. Droplets appear on the mask when breathing out and disappear when breathing in.”

“In the “Foegen effect,” the virions spread (because of their smaller size) deeper into the respiratory tract. They bypass the bronchi and are inhaled deep into the alveoli, where they can cause pneumonia instead of bronchitis, which would be typical of a virus infection.

Furthermore, these virions bypass the multilayer squamous epithelial wall that they cannot pass into in vitro and most likely cannot pass into in vivo. Therefore, the only probable way for the virions to enter the blood vessels is through the alveoli.”

Wearing Masks Could Be Related To Long COVID

Fögen explained that wearing masks could end up increasing your overall viral load because, instead of exhaling virions from your respiratory tract and ridding your body of them, those virions are caught in the mask and returned.

This might also have the effect of increasing the number of virions that pass through the mask, such that it becomes more than the number that would have been shed without a mask.

The fact that “hypercondensed droplets and pure virions in the mask might be blown outwards during expiration, resulting in aerosol transmission instead of droplet transmission” is another issue that could make transmission worse instead of better, and the use of “more protective” masks could also backfire, making COVID-19’s long-term effects worse.

Fögen explained:

“The use of “better” masks (e.g., FFP2, FFP3) with a higher droplet-filtering capacity probably should cause an even stronger “Foegen effect” because the number of virions that are potentially re-inhaled increases in the same way that outward shedding is reduced.

Another salient point is that COVID-19-related long-term effects and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children may all be a direct cause of the “Foegen effect.” Virus entry into the alveoli and blood without being restricted to the upper respiratory tract and bronchi and can cause damage by initiating an (auto) immune reaction in most organs.”

Clear Risks Of Prolonged Mask Use

Two expert reports spoke out against the use of masks for children in 2021. The first, a psychology report, stated that masks are likely to be causing psychological harm to children and interfering with development. “The extent of psychological harm to young people is unknown,” the report stated, “due to the unique nature of the ‘social experiment’ currently underway in schools, and in wider society.”

The second report focused on health, safety and well-being, noting potential permanent physical damage to the lungs caused by fibrosis from inhalation of fibrous nanoparticles.

“There are real and significant dangers of respiratory infection, oral health deterioration and of lung injury, such as pneumothorax, owing to moisture buildup and also exposure to potentially harmful levels of an asphyxiant gas (carbon dioxide [CO2]) which can cause serious injury to health,” the authors explained.

Normally, the CO2 then dissipates into the air around you before you take another breath. In the open air, carbon dioxide typically exists at about 400 parts per million (ppm), or 0.04% by volume.

The German Federal Environmental Office set a limit of CO2 for closed rooms of 2,000 ppm, or 0.2 percent by volume.

If you’re wearing a facemask, the CO2 cannot escape as it usually does and instead becomes trapped in the mask.

In a study published in JAMA Pediatrics, researchers analyzed the CO2 content of inhaled air among children wearing two types of masks, as well as wearing no mask.

While no significant difference in CO2 was found between the two types of masks, there was a significant elevation when wearing masks compared to not wearing them. CO2 in inhaled air under surgical and filtering facepiece masks came in between 13,120 ppm and 13,910 ppm, “which is higher than what is already deemed unacceptable by the German Federal Environmental Office by a factor of 6,” the researchers noted.

Also important, this level was reached after only three minutes, while children wear masks at school for a mean of 270 minutes at a time. Even the child who had the lowest measured CO2 level had a measurement three-fold greater than the closed room CO2 limit of 0.2 percent. However, younger children appeared to have the highest CO2 values; a level of 25,000 ppm was measured from a 7-year-old wearing a facemask.

Bacterial Infection Risk, Problems With Social Learning

The full consequences of prolonged mask use are only beginning to be understood. The University of Louisville researchers noted, however, that using a mask for more than four hours per day “promotes facial alkalinization and inadvertently encourages dehydration, which in turn can enhance barrier breakdown and bacterial infection risk.” Other reported adverse effects include:

Increase in headaches and sweating Decreased cognitive precision
Association with medical errors Interference with social learning in children
Obscured nonverbal communication Distorted verbal speech
Removal of visual cues, which is detrimental to people with hearing loss

After a lawsuit was brought by Leslie Manookian’s Health Freedom Defense Fund (HFDF), U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle finally voided the CDC’s U.S. mask mandate on airplanes and public transit in April 2022.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) has appealed the court order, however, making it clear that they don’t intend to give up on mask mandates without a fight. In response, HFDF issued the following statement:

DoJ’s statement [that it would appeal] is perplexing to say the least and sounds like it comes from health policy advocates not government lawyers. The ruling by the US District Court ruling is a matter of law, not CDC preference or an assessment of ‘current health conditions.’

If there is in fact a public health emergency with clear and irrefutable science supporting CDC’s mask mandate, does it not warrant urgent action? Why would DoJ and CDC not immediately appeal?

HFDF is left with no option but to conclude that the Mask Mandate is really a political matter and not at all about urgent public health issues or the demands of sound science. While DoJ and CDC play politics with Americans’ health and freedoms, HFDF trusts individual Americans to make their own health decisions.

HFDF is confident that Americans possess ample common sense and education to understand that there are real questions about mask efficacy and risk and that CDC’s policy reflects neither.”

America has been repeatedly warned about the dangers associated with the wearing of face masks. Medical professionals who should know better and politicians exercising their tyrannical tendencies continue to push mandates for entire populations. Aside from health risks, masks are an egregious violation of free speech and the First Amendment.

  1. She is baffled??????? FFS what planet does this stupid woman live on. It makes perfect sense if you breathe in your own breath its not good for you, you are taking in your lung waste and plenty of other germs. Jesus and all the other deities wept, and wept and wept. I hear the dumb f**k that is ruling the US of A has been boostered and now has covid. Well aint that a complete waste of time. It’s mild though, hahahaha. Could the world be in a worse state than now? Woke bastards ruling the world? FFFJA

    • Viking, They may have voted for her but a smaller number every day are still trying to polish that particular TURD.
      Unhappiness and depression are what weakens the immune system just as badly as some sickness, that’s one of the reasons Coof is rampant in our Country.

  2. Facemasks not only contribute to viral illness theyre a sure sign of something massively wrong in the wearers brain.

    Hmmm just read the header meme and it sums things up perfectly.

  3. “Masks might make you feel secure but are not capable of controlling viruses”
    “Masks must be mandated in all public settings as they are an effective tool in controlling outbreaks of Covid”
    BOTH ACTUAL QUOTES FROM DR ANTHONY FAUCHI.
    That right there tells you how moronic the sheeple of the western world countries have become to continue swallowing this mask B/S.

    • Simon Fauci Says” seems to be proving more sinister as an insidious training game for children. 🙂 The beginnings of accepting indoctrination?

      Nah, more of fun thing, “a time for children” ….. which helps parents, teachers, to get some things done.
      Then “a time to grow-up” ,,, figure some commonsense.

      Fauci says “Follow the Science”
      “I am the Science” whilst “Science follows the Money”

      The biggest problem it has really come into its own as an adult game. 🙁 or is the real truth, that those adults have not grown up, grown on. so no commonsense, unable to reason,

    • It has been known for decades that surgical masks do not stop a virus, it can’t.
      It was written on the side of the packets “not suitable for virus” in 2003, as it is still written today
      Any Surgeon or mask nurse knows and understands the limitations of masks.
      I was issued with 5,000 surgical masks doing a Silk Road Moscow to Beijing in April 2003 at the height of Sars.
      The passengers were told they could help themselves.
      I threw most of them away in Beijing, most ignored them
      Not one passenger caught Sars, only one with a cold, poor bugger a kiwi, was treated like a leper by his fellow punters.
      Came home went on a cruise then took a trip back through China in May before going to Europe for the summer season.
      It was a very different outbreak, and was over before it started.
      We were the last foreigners in China, and Great Wall and Forbidden city we were the only visitors.
      By May it was all over and life went back to normal in China, it was normal everywhere else right through except a few places in Asia, namely Singapore had 8 deaths in a market in a week.
      If they were serious about masks, Ardern and Albanese would not have ventured to Fiji without masks,
      Here are the current 7 day rolling averages of new cases per million
      New Zealand 1853
      Australia 1730
      Fiji 90
      It is very clear to me that both these leaders do not believe in any validity of masks, if they do, they are hypocrites.
      Surely you would protect the locals from the two countries with some of the worlds highest infection rates.
      Just all continual parade of fear porn, but it is the plebs that wear masks, not the elite.

  4. A person’s immune system is affected by fear.

    Putting aside the “doctored” Covid death toll, which reclassifies death by flu, cancer, old age, gunshot, car accident, and in fact ANY death with a couple of months of a positive Covid test, as a Covid death, fear does screw with your immune system.

    Worry, stress, fear, and anxiety kill. It is well known amongst professionals in both mainstream medicine and alternative medicine that stress can kill.

    Worry, the cognitive enumeration and anticipation of potential future negative events, is associated with autonomic dysregulation, which may in turn have implications for the immune system. People endorsing high (n = 7) and normal levels of trait worry (n = 8) were briefly exposed to a phobic stimulus and the autonomic and immune responses and recovery were assessed. A time-matched control group (n = 6) was not exposed to any stimulus. Both worry groups showed increased heart rate and skin conductance in response to phobic fear. However, only the normal worry group showed a concomitant increase in natural killer cells in peripheral blood. Patterns of change during the follow-up period suggested that phobic fear had disrupted a normal circadian increase in natural killer cells. Adrenergic and hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal mechanisms may be responsible for the differences between high and normal worry groups in their natural killer cell response to and recovery from phobic fear.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10373274/

    And according to said professionals, there are two types of stress.
    [1] Self inflicted stress as a result of choice: The stress you encounter when you take on a positive challenge, e.g. Starting a business that requires working seven days a week to get it of the ground; Or working long hours to save for that OE. Or building a rocket to Mars. The person has choice, because at any stage they could kill the stress by choosing not to pursue the goal. Usually they accept that the confusion and stress is part of the journey, which may involve personal growth.

    [2] Stress that is inflicted upon us. In a job we don’t control and where we believe we have little choice. One option is to opt out and become a [1] above, but many people let their fear stop them. The other stress, is masks, lockdowns, and constantly being battered by Covid theatre and brainwashing. This also explains the high suicide rate.

  5. 15 riders have now had to withdraw from the Tour de France due to testing positive for Covid. All officials have masks on, as each rider finish each stage they are given masks for the most part and of course all are vaccinated. One poor rider was made to withdraw even though had no symptoms but had tested positive.
