PKB: Masks, measures' (in)effectiveness studies

“Bacterial and fungal isolation from face masks under the COVID-19 pandemic” (Nature, 2022.07.18):
A longer mask usage significantly increased the fungal colony numbers but not the bacterial colony numbers. Although most identified microbes were non-pathogenic in humans; Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, and Cladosporium, we found several pathogenic microbes; Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Aspergillus, and Microsporum. We also found no associations of mask-attached microbes with the transportation methods or gargling. We propose that immunocompromised people should avoid repeated use of masks to prevent microbial infection.
“Masking the downside: prolonged exposure likely to give you toxoplasmosis.“ (El Gato Malo, 2022.05.12):”
children clearly got much higher CO2 levels than adults and exceeded 5,000ppm in both mask categories
adults and elderly were under 5k for surgical masks (though 37.5% and 25% of each respectively exceeded it) but not by much
FFP2’s caused much higher CO2 than surgical masks and severely exceeded 5k in all age groups.
all masks in all ages resulted in at least a 10X rise in CO2 rate from ambient and some were nearly 30X.
“TSA mask mandate“ (Vinay Prasad, 2022.04.21): “The CDC failed you. It never ran a trial. It never generated knowledge. It kept us in the dark. It should be no surprise that it lost it's power and legitimacy. It proved it does not deserve the power it was was entrusted by the people. It failed to use science to reduce uncertainty. We should be ashamed of the organization. “
“Detection of microplastics in human lung tissue using μFTIR spectroscopy“ (ScienceDirect, 2022.04.13): “Microplastics were identified in all regions of the human lungs using μFTIR analysis.“
“How to protect Grandma from getting COVID“ (Steve Kirsch, 2022.03.05):
“Lockdowns only reduced COVID deaths by 0.2 per cent, Johns Hopkins study finds” (National Post, 2022.02.02): “We find no evidence that lockdowns, school closures, border closures, and limiting gatherings have had a noticeable effect on COVID-19 mortality,” reads the paper, which is based on a review of 34 pre-existing COVID-19 studies. Given the “devastating effects” that lockdowns have caused, the authors recommended they be “rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument.”
“Biden's ridiculous free N95 mask offer” (Steve Kirsch, 2022.01.31): “The Biden administration is giving out 400 million free N95 masks. Here’s what they aren’t telling you: an N95 respirator will “work” for around 2 hours in a hospital or similar setting with filtered air; an N95 respirator will “work” for around 30 min outdoors. So if 200M Americans receive two respirators each, they get around 4 hours of protection. And that only works if the respirators are fitted perfectly with no gaps and people are trained on their use.“
“Everything you need to know about masks and P100 respirators“ (Steve Kirsch, 2022.01.13)
“Are Face Masks Effective? The Evidence.“ (Swiss Policy Research, updated 2022.01)
“More than 150 Comparative Studies and Articles on Mask Ineffectiveness and Harms” (Brownstone Institute, Dr. Paul Alexander, 2021.12.20)
“More Than 400 Studies on the Failure of Compulsory Covid Interventions (Lockdowns, Restrictions, Closures)“ (Brownstone Institute, Dr. Paul Alexander, 2021.11.30)
“Lancet Letter Demolishes Vaccination“ (Igor Chudiv, 2021.11.30) :
In the UK it was described that secondary attack rates among household contacts exposed to fully vaccinated index cases was similar to household contacts exposed to unvaccinated index cases (25% for vaccinated vs 23% for unvaccinated).
12 of 31 infections in fully vaccinated household contacts (39%) arose from fully vaccinated epidemiologically linked index cases.
Peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status or variant type
“Masks don't work“ (Steve Kirsch, 2021.11.27)
“That Bangladesh Mask Study Shows AT BEST A Population Seroprevalence Reduction Of 0.0026%, And Likely Smaller: Plus Four New Studies Showing Mask Mandates Are Useless“ (William M. Briggs, 2021.09.08)
“Quantitative Method for Comparative Assessment of Particle Removal Efficiency of Fabric Masks as Alternatives to Standard Surgical Masks for PPE“ (2021.08.22): “This study has been used by members in the medical industry to stipulate that a face mask (not a respirator) can achieve a “fit factor” and protects the wearer. This research included a review of the published paper of the research along with the original report that had some important information that was omitted from the final paper. Not only was this study unnecessary because we already have the science and methods to determine if a face covering can be qualified as a respiratory protective piece, but this study significantly lowered the bar of standards the exposure science industry has long adhered to. This study encourages an uninformed, untrained public to engage in indiscriminate PPE construction and use, to attempt in achieving what is believe greater protection for themselves or their children, by means of any process or materials their imagination conjures. This study did not follow OSHA regulations to determine protection, proper use, or if their new guidelines for mask use were even safe. This is an example of evidence from the lowest form research in the hierarchy of evidence and should be removed from all reputable sources for scientific guidance. Finally, the CDC and publications must retract the claim that face masks protect the wearer. This study was that claim’s foundation and the fact that this mask study is voided, that claim of masks protecting the wearer too must be annulled and communicated to the public. This is due to the large amount of media attention this invalid research received (see Appendix H).“
