Virus masks unmasked, by JD

Toby Young's Lockdown Sceptics for 11th July has that picture of Boris and his blue muzzle with a caption "Muzzled sheepdog looks bewildered, where's his owner gone?"

On the current page, 13th July he has a link to this by a Swiss doctor:

"Masks in everyday life have no or very little effect. If used improperly, they can even increase the risk of infection."


"Interestingly, the demand for a worldwide obligation to wear masks is led by a lobby group called “masks4all” (masks for all), which was founded by a “young leader” of the Davos forum."

That Swiss Doctor page is worth reading in full. It is a very comprehensive summary of the Covid scare story so far. And here is another page I found via Spiked Online:

It is worth going back to Plato and reading how easily democracy turns into tyranny; we are at that stage now where the public are demanding to be 'rescued' by the Tyrant, demanding their own enslavement, demanding that everybody wear masks and applaud the incompetent NHS management etc.

We await the next chapter in this brand new Whitehall Farce.

JD adds...

A few words from a real doctor by which I mean a retired GP who used to see real people on a daily basis and offered advice and medication as appropriate for their illness.

That Swiss Doctor page is worth bookmarking and reading in full. Lots of interesting information and graphs.

And yet the large-scale studies from almost everywhere are showing that the masks are effective, especially in stopping asymptomatic people from spreading illnesses.

From an analyst trying to help companies restart, "...One thing stands out: behavior modification. If you look at the data on the states that currently have a decrease in case counts they all have one thing in common....they mandated mask usage early. Those that threw caution to the wind are paying a substantial price. Our tracings show a significant decrease in transmission in those who were wearing a face covering/mask. It’s undeniable data. It’s dropping the Ro from 3 to less than 1. "

Face masks do nothing, it is like using a chain link fence to restrict mosquitos.

If you clap your hands, there will be no elephants in NYC. And by golly there are no elephants in NYC. Gee it works.

What makes it so reasonable that people accept that the solution works?
