We all knew that this was coming. Apparently, it is not enough for the left to have kids wear just surgical masks, and of course, they cannot bring themselves to admit that they were wrong. Thus, instead of just stopping the insanity, they now want your child to wear even more cruel N95 masks, and those won’t provide protection against the virus either!
Of course, this situation is just like a dog returning to his own vomit. These same individuals recommended that your children use KN95 masks after both surgical and cloth failed to work. Well, if they are failing to work, why are we doing it in the first place?
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this nightmare, folks. This is a situation where a dream will descend into reality and then eventually turn into a mandate.
Of course, anyone pushing these masks on kids should be charged with reckless child endangerment, but now that we know that N95s really don’t make much difference should we really trust these same people that were wrong about surgical masks to make our kids wear a mask that could give them EVEN WORSE side effects?
Stephen Petty has made his mark as a certified industrial hygienist, and he has been sending people a copy of an N95 usage label that was manufactured by 3M that was enlarged into an infographic. Apparently, this blows the myth of using an N95 completely out of the water.
This label confirms what everyone else thought to begin with: no, masks cannot stop aerosols, and they most definitely cannot stop viral ones. This is why the label recommends against relying on them for source protection even against asbestos particles that are usually a 5-micron size, which is 50 times larger than the COVID virions. Indeed, before masking became a social and political tool, a study was published in late 2019 with the following comments: Among outpatient health care personnel, N95 respirators vs medical masks as worn by participants in this trial resulted in no significant difference in the incidence of laboratory-confirmed influenza.”
However, if you think that the efficacy of N95 against the virus is better, then you are absolutely wrong. The only known places to mandate use of the N95 masks have been Bavaria and Berlin, and they have not been able to stop the subsequent wave. It was no different than surgical and cloth masks!
Indeed, there have been studies of mask-wearing nurses in the past, and they all experienced significant increases in CO2 levels and “complaints of headache, lightheadedness, and difficulty communicating also increased over time.” Moreover, there was a study of 154 N95 wearing health-care workers in Singapore, and they too had negative effects, including an increase in carbon dioxide levels.
And what of the current California wildfires? A recent California Department of Health study says that “children should not wear these masks – they do not fit properly and they can impede breathing. The N95 respirator can make it more difficult for the wearer to breathe due to carbon dioxide buildup, which reduces the intake of oxygen, increased breathing rates, and heart rates.” The gradual and subtle deprivation of oxygen is worse for children when their bodies are still growing. Still think wearing masks is a wise idea?
