From Must Read Alaska: Following the science: Last year, top doctors said mask-wearing was unhealthy
Dr. Anne Zink, the state’s Chief Health Officer, who told the Senate Health and Social Services Committee on Feb. 12, 2020 that a person wearing a mask is breathing in a wet, moist environment collecting viruses and bacteria, and it is in general not useful for protection from other persons’ germs.
Zink said that a mask was useful for someone walking into a clinic who was coughing or sneezing, but that the N95 mask — the one that is effective — has to be fitted and tested and that the recommendation was for average persons to not wear masks because they don’t know what they are doing with them.
“The CDC is not recommending the average person to wear a mask. If you think about a mask, it’s a wet, moist environment that’s collecting viruses and bacteria, and in general, it’s not necessarily useful to protect you from other people. It can be useful if someone walks into a clinic, and they’re having symptoms. They’re coughing and sneezing — to keep you from coughing and sneezing on other surfaces and other people. So if you’re going into a healthcare setting, and you’re sick, putting a mask on and calling beforehand is recommended. In general day to day it’s not recommended.
The N95 that you mentioned is a tighter fitting mask that has to be tested and specifically fit. ….”
