Danish Study Finds Masks Provide Little Protection From COVID-19 Infection


A large, randomized study out of Denmark concluded wearing face masks may not provide the protection health experts have claimed as the clinical trial found wearing surgical masks failed to cut the risk of being infected with coronavirus by half. Last week, the CDC updated their guidelines to inform Americans that masks now DO allegedly protect the wearer. However, the new Danish study counters that claim.

The leftist New York Times acknowledged the study, but advised its readers that “You need to wear it anyway.” Democrat Joe Biden is promoting a national mask mandate and wearing masks while inside of your own home.

A study out of Denmark released on Wednesday concluded wearing face coverings may not provide the protection “health experts” have touted.

The large randomized clinical trial found wearing surgical masks failed to halve the risk of being infected with coronavirus.

Even the New York Times had to address the study in an article titled, “A New Study Questions Whether Masks Protect Wearers,” however, the bossy liberal outlet made sure to add, “You Need To Wear Them Anyway.”

This headline is referring to the narrative that wearing a face mask protects others from illness, not the wearer.

Just last week, the CDC updated their guidelines to inform Americans that masks now DO allegedly protect the wearer.

However, the new Danish study counters that claim.

The study was conducted during April and May when 6,024 adults were divided into two groups, one constantly masked and the others were the “control group.”

The researchers concluded, “The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use. The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection.”

Portuguese Appeals Court Deems PCR Tests to Diagnose Covid-19 Are Unreliable


On November 11, 2020, a Portuguese appeal court ruled it was unlawful to quarantine people based solely on a PCR test. The court stated that the test’s reliability depends on the number of cycles used and the viral load present and concluded that “if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the rule in most laboratories in Europe and the US), the probability that the individual is infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.”

The case was brought to court after four people had been quarantined by the Regional Health Authority. Of these, only one had tested positive for COVID using a PCR test, and the other three were deemed to have been at high risk for exposure, which required all four of them to go into isolation.

On November 11, 2020, a Portuguese appeal court ruled it was unlawful to quarantine people based solely on a PCR test.

The court stated, the test’s reliability depends on the number of cycles used and the viral load present. Citing Jaafar et al. 2020, the court concludes that “if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the rule in most laboratories in Europe and the US), the probability that said person is infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.” The court further notes that the cycle threshold used for the PCR tests currently being made in Portugal is unknown.

This case concerned the fact that four people had been quarantined by the Regional Health Authority.  Of these, one had tested positive for COVID using a PCR test; the other three were deemed to have undergone a high risk of exposure. Consequently, the Regional Health Authority decided that all four were infectious and a health hazard, which required that they go into isolation.

Top Pathologist Says Coronavirus is “The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on an Unsuspecting Public”

Dr. Roger Hodkinson, a top pathologist and an expert in virology, who is the CEO of a company that manufactures COVID tests, told government officials in Alberta that the coronavirus crisis is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.” Dr. Hodkinson said that social distancing is useless and he condemned mandatory mask mandates. He slammed the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that positive test results do not mean a clinical infection and that all testing should stop because the false numbers are “driving public hysteria.”

Dr. Hodkinson said that the risk of death in the province of Alberta for people under the age of 65 was one in three hundred thousand, and that it was “outrageous” to shut down society for what the doctor said “was just another bad flu.” He called for society to be re-opened immediately to prevent the debilitating damage being caused by lockdowns.

Top pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson told government officials in Alberta during a zoom conference call that the current coronavirus crisis is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”

 

Hodkinson’s comments were made during a discussion involving the Community and Public Services Committee and the clip was subsequently uploaded to YouTube.

Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”

“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson.

The doctor said that nothing could be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people and that the whole situation represented “politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.”
