CDC Study Based on 14 Clinical Trials Shows Face Masks do Not Work!

A new study that reviewed 14 randomized controlled trials, appeared in the Emerging Infectious Diseases journal published by the CDC. The abstract reads, “Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.’ This means that, despite use of face masks, there was no proof that it stopped the spread of influenza. -GEG

Alert to citizens, governors, mayors, presidents, prime ministers, and public health officials—

You want science. You always state that. Well, here is your very own science.

The reference is: “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures.” Published in: “Emerging Infectious Diseases, Vol.26, No. 5, May 2020.” (That journal is published by the CDC.)

I quote from the abstract: “Here, we review the evidence base on the effectiveness of nonpharmaceutical personal protective measures and environmental hygiene measures in non-healthcare settings and discuss their potential inclusion in pandemic plans. Although mechanistic studies [*] support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza. We similarly found limited evidence on the effectiveness of improved hygiene and environmental cleaning.”

Here are quotes from pages 970-972 of the review: “In our systematic review, we identified 10 RCTs [randomized controlled trials] that reported estimates of the effectiveness of face masks in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the community from literature published during 1946–July 27, 2018. In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks…”

The Integrity Project (TIP): A Blueprint for Democrats to Steal the 2020 Election, Linked to George Soros

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP), reportedly funded by Soros, prepared for a clear Trump win with a plan for Joe Biden to refuse to concede, while expecting the military to force Trump out of office. A “street fight,” would be advised in this scenario rather than legal battles or “elites observing norms.”

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf Says White Supremacists Are Biggest Threat to US

Last week, FBI Director Chris Wray testified before Congress that his agency looks at Antifa as an ideology or movement, not an organization. Just about everyone in the country except the FBI knows this is not true. The FBI is protecting Antifa, allowing it to create chaos and terror throughout the nation.

NO SURPRISE. However, here is the bottom line. IF YOU WANT TO WEAR A FACE MASK (FOR ANY REASON), GO RIGHT AHEAD. The flip side of that coin is … if you do not wish to wear a face mask (for any reason)), go right ahead.

So what do we Do regarding the fakes, the spread of false information, the sale at high cost of masks that do nothing? After speaking with pharmacists, doctors and nurses, the facts are, masks do NOT PREVENT THE SPREAD OF VIRUSES!!!

“…However, as with hand hygiene, face masks might be able to reduce the transmission of other infections and therefore have value in an influenza pandemic when healthcare resources are stretched” 

-The part you didn’t include.

Responding to Terry:

If you want to wear a mask, then wear a mask. PROVE your case before you infringe on other people’s bodies. You quoted the study: “face masks MIGHT be able to reduce the transmission of other infections,” – where is the proof? Medical experts can’t even prove a novel ‘virus’ exists.
