MIT Data Scientist: Lockdowns Not Correlated With Fewer Deaths (But Are Correlated With More Unemployment)

June 4, 2021

Dozens of studies show that lockdowns were an ineffective pandemic response. The list just got longer.

In May, Youyang Gu, an MIT-trained engineer and data scientist, released data showing that government restrictions were not correlated with lower COVID mortality in America. Government restrictions were correlated with higher unemployment, however.

“In the US, there is no correlation between Covid deaths & changes in unemployment rates. However, blue states are much more likely to have higher increases in unemployment,” wrote Gu, the creator of covid19-projections.com, a pandemic modeling site. “More restrictions in a state is NOT correlated with fewer COVID-19 deaths. However, more restrictions IS correlated with higher unemployment.”

Masks Didn’t Slow COVID Spread: New Study

May 26, 2021

New findings reported Tuesday in a University of Louisville study challenge what has been the prevailing belief that mask mandates are necessary to slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The study notes that “80% of US states mandated masks during the COVID-19 pandemic” and while “mandates induced greater mask compliance, [they] did not predict lower growth rates when community spread was low (minima) or high (maxima).” Among other things, the study—conducted using data from the CDC covering multiple seasons—reports that “mask mandates and use are not associated with lower SARS-CoV-2 spread among US states.” Continue reading “U of L Study: Masks Didn’t Slow Covid & Have Significant Risks — Facial alkalinization, dehydration, bacterial infection, headaches, sweating, decreased cognitive precision; interfere with social learning and communication”

Newly-released Emails Reveal Dr Fauci Spoke With Bill Gates Regularly, Knew Masks Don’t Work, and Was Aware of Lab-Leak Likelihood

Included in the emails is Dr. Fauci’s response to the former health and human services secretary, Sylvia Burwell, when she asked him about wearing face masks while traveling.

“Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection. The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you,” Fauci wrote in a response.

Tucker: Fauci, ‘a figure of religious veneration,’ deserves to be under criminal investigation

“Oh my god,” one Biden voter wrote to him back in March. “Is there anything I can do for you, besides being grateful?”

“Wash my feet with your tears,” Fauci may have responded. We can’t say that he did respond that way for certain. We don’t have his reply. We do know that in affluent neighborhoods throughout Washington D.C., you can still see signs that say “Thank you, Dr. Fauci.” What does that tell you?

It tells you that Tony Fauci is no longer a scientist, assuming he ever was. He’s a figure of religious veneration — Jesus for people who don’t believe in God.

2:10 “I don’t think the masks ever really did help, to tell you the truth. When you do studies of the cloth masks, 97% of the virus sized particles go right through the cloth masks. They really don’t work. When you do controlled studies in hospitals, you find that most of the cloth and surgical masks don’t work for influenza sized particles. Interestingly, the mask that does work is the N95 mask. It has to be worn properly.

Study: Masks are ‘Ineffective,’ Have ‘Devastating Health Consequences’

STORY:

Study Makes Claim That Masks are ‘Ineffective’, Have ‘Devastating Health Consequences’

Baruch Vainshelboim, a clinical exercise physiologist, published a study in November that recirculated on the internet recently hypothesizing that masks are ineffective and could have long-term health consequences.

“Although, scientific evidence supporting facemasks’ efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological and health effects are established,” the article states.

…the researcher … says not only are masks ineffective, but could also be causing long-term health problems.

“Both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to reduce human-to-human transmission and infectivity of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19,” the article details. “Wearing facemasks has adverse physiological and psychological effects … [and] long-term consequences of wearing facemasks on health are detrimental.”

The research suggests that the long-term practice of wearing facemasks has the “strong potential for devastating health consequences,” and states that masks should be “avoided from use.” …

“The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19,” the article reads. “The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects.”

Mask Pollution Catastrophe: Over 1.5 Billion Masks to Pollute Ocean This Year — “This plastic does not ‘go away”

Claiming 3 million masks used globally every minute, researchers warn of environmental catastrophe

March 12, 2021

Researchers in the U.S. and Denmark estimated in a study in Frontiers in Environmental Science that “an astounding 129 billion face masks [are] being used globally every month,” a number that works out to three million every minute. “Most are disposable face masks made from plastic microfibers,” the researchers note.


Report: Over 1.5 Billion Masks to Pollute Ocean This Year

29 Dec 2020

Over one billion of the 52 billion masks produced in 2020 will pollute the world’s oceans, warns report published by an environmental group out of Hong Kong. …

“Single-use face masks are made from a variety of meltblown plastics and are difficult to recycle due to both composition and risk of contamination and infection,” OceansAsia’s report states. …

The report estimates nearly 7,000 tons of plastic could pollute the ocean and may take roughly 450 years to break down.

“This plastic does not ‘go away,’ but rather accumulates, breaking up into smaller and smaller pieces. Annually, it is estimated that marine plastic pollution kills 100,000 marine mammals and turtles, over a million seabirds, and even greater numbers of fish, invertebrates, and other marine life,” the report says. “Plastic pollution also profoundly impacts coastal communities, fisheries, and economies. Conservative estimates suggest that it could cost the global economy $13 billion USD per year, and lead to a 1-5% decline in ecosystem services, at a value of between $500 to $2,500 billion USD.”

The report also highlights various animals that have died due to masks.

This could be the Anchorage Assembly, ruling by emotion instead of facts. Mat-Su (Wassila and Palmer) has half the deaths and hospitalizations that Anchorage has (the facts that really matter. PCR tests have up to 90% false positives – NY Times), yet has an older population and no mandates.

(video) Dr. Ryan Cole: “If you are in MIDLEVEL VITAMIN D range you cannot die from Covid” — MOST are D deficient — “No such thing as ‘flu and cold season,’ only low vitamin D season”

MY NOTES

Average Covid-19 age of death: 78.6. Average annual US age of death historically: 78.6.

4:40 “The biggest lost message on this entire pandemic is vitamin D. … There is no such thing as ‘flu and cold season.’ There is only low vitamin D season.”

“It is the master key to your immune system. If one has a level in midrange you cannot develop a cytokine storm, data shows. What kills people? Cytokine storm. If you are in midlevel range, you cannot die from Covid because you cannot get a cytokine storm.”

70-80% of Americans are vitamin D deficient. 82-88% of nursing home patients, 83% of African Americans, 70% of Latinos, 72% of Native Americans, 47% of Caucasians are vitamin D deficient. 96% of ICU patients are vitamin D deficient.

“The best mask of all is a healthy immune system, and a healthy immune system doesn’t occur if you don’t have D in normal range.”

Above the 35th parallel, WE CANNOT make natural vitamin D from the sun in winter for 4-5 months.

“Obesity drastically reduces your ability to get vitamin D into your circulation.”

9:35 “Normal D levels decrease your risk for Covid symptom severity risk for hospitalization by 90%. That’s the world data now. There have been a lot of placebo controlled trials that show this, all around the world. It is scientific fact.”

10;25 “That’s why the hospitalizations and the death rates in the darker skinned populations. It is not social disparity. It is plain and simple biology.”

The RDA, the recommended daily allowance: that was after WWII to sustain basic life. … It is absolute nonsense.”

Fauci said in an interview in November, 2020 he takes 8,000-9,000 iu per day, but then doesn’t make this a public health message.

13:00 CONFLICT OF INTEREST: If there’s a treatment [like HCL or Ivermectin], by law the FDA cannot approve a vaccine.

14:00 Treatments that don’t work by the time people are in the hospital: Remdesivir at $3,000 and still used by hospitals does NOT add survival benefit. Convalescent plasma and monoclonal antibodies only work early. Steroids at the right point in the disease does add benefit.

Ivermectin works, and is safe. Over 4 billion people have taken it since 1980! “There is blood on the hands of bureaucrats in Washington who have suppressed this lifesaving medication.” In India, Ivermectin packets costing only 2 cents have been given out, and have brought life in India back to normal. In the U.S., it’s less than $30 for an entire treatment.

20:30 The experimental mRNA vaccines are not vaccines. Long term safety is highly suspect.

23:15 “Masks don’t do anything.”

We are in an endemic right now. We are not in a pandemic.”

26:00 Cytokine storm explained, which vitamin D stops.

Six Proofs Masks Do Not Reduce Infections | Five Ways Forced Masking is Immoral

Six Proofs Masks Do Not Reduce Infections

1. Insubstantial: A CDC-funded review on masking in May 2020 came to the conclusion: “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… None of the household studies reported a significant reduction in secondary laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the face mask group.” If masks can’t stop the regular flu, how can they stop SAR-CoV-2?

2. Unreasonable: “Evidence that masking as a source [of] control results in any material reduction in transmission was scant, anecdotal, and, in the overall, lacking… [and mandatory masking] is the exact opposite of being reasonable,” ruled a hospital arbitrator in a dispute between The Ontario Nurses’ Association and the Toronto Academic Health Science Network.

3. Ineffective: “Oral masks in healthy individuals are ineffective against the spread of viral infections,” write Belgian medical doctors in an open letter published in The American Institute of Stress, September 24, 2020.

4. Unsanitary: “It has never been shown that wearing surgical face masks decreases postoperative wound infections,” writes Göran Tunevall, M.D. in the World Journal of Surgery. “On the contrary, a 50% decrease [in bacterial infection] has been reported after omitting face masks.”

5. No Protection: “There were 17 eligible studies.… None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask ⁄ respirator use and protection against influenza infection,” concludes a research review in the journal Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses.

6. Unproven: Dutch Minister for Medical Care, Tamara van Ark, asserted that “from a medical perspective there is no proven effectiveness of masks” after a review by the National Institute for Health on July 29, 2020 (according to Reuters).

Five Ways Forced Masking is Immoral

1. Reckless: “By making mask-wearing recommendations and policies for the general public, or by expressly condoning the practice, governments have both ignored the scientific evidence and done the opposite of following the precautionary principle,” writes Denis Rancourt, PhD in his 2020 paper Masks Don’t Work.

2. Manipulative: Dr. Andreas Voss, member of the World Health Organization expert team and head of microbiology at a Dutch hospital in Nijmegen, on July 24, 2020, told I Am Expat that masks were made mandatory “not because of scientific evidence, but because of political pressure and public opinion.”

3. Fear-Mongering: “In fact, there is no study to even suggest that it makes any sense for healthy individuals to wear masks in public,” write Drs. Karina Reiss, Phd and Dr. Sucharit Bakdi, MD in Corona, False Alarm? “One might suspect that the only political reason for enforcing the measure is to foster fear in the population.”

4. Totalitarian: “If you look at the history of totalitarian regimes… they all do the same thing, which is they try to crush culture, and crush any evidence of self-expression…” explains Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in an interview regarding face masks. “And what is the ultimate vector for self-expression? It’s your facial expressions…. [Yet] we’ve all been told to put on the burqa and be obedient.”

5. Virtue-Signalling: “Masks are utterly useless,” testified Dr. Roger Hodkinson, a pathologist, certified with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, at a city council meeting. “…masks are simply virtue-signalling… It’s utterly ridiculous seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.”

Elizabeth Gayle: Anchorage’s Emergency Orders Did NOT Work — “How does Anchorage get away with justifying ANYTHING they’ve done?”

NOTICE these numbers are for the entire Mat-Su valley: Wasilla, Palmer, etc..

Posted on Facebook 3/4/21

Elizabeth Gayle [5/21 update: now changed to ‘Elizabeth Welsh’]

Did Anchorage’s Emergency Orders work?

Let’s take a look at the numbers that matter. Cases alone are irrelevant, as testing is unreliable (lots of false positives because cycle thresholds were too high), and most people just have the sniffles. The important metrics are deaths and hospital capacity (which is what we were told in the beginning, that the intent behind mandates was to protect hospital capacity and save lives).

In Anchorage, with extremely restrictive orders, a mask mandate, and no in-person school, there have been 242.12 hospitalizations / 100,000 people and 55.2 deaths/ 100,000. (Using a population of 288,000)

In the Mat Su, which has had no health powers nor mandates in place since May, and kids in school since August, there have been 92.7 hospitalizations / 100,000 people and 32.7 / 100,000 people. (Using a population of 110,000) Continue reading “Elizabeth Gayle: Anchorage’s Emergency Orders Did NOT Work — “How does Anchorage get away with justifying ANYTHING they’ve done?””

Dr. uses vape clouds to illustrate how masks do not work

Facebook’s “fact check” claims that the virus particles don’t come through the mask because they’re always spread through respiratory droplets? No doubt, anything going around the mask gets out as if there were no mask, and if droplets do encounter the mask, trying to get through, if they didn’t evaporate and get through the mask, all masks would be soaking wet, dripping on the person from the massive amounts of water vapor people exhale.

Water vapors do go through the mask, just not in large, individual droplets, which cannot travel six feet anyway, when someone accidentally spits while talking, for example.

A doctor friend online who posted this video says “some of the Covid particles are not on droplets, but are free floating,” so are independent of droplets, and are tiny enough to go through the much larger fabric pores.

And regarding the particles that are on droplets, they can move through the mask material and be pushed out the other side with future exhalations that send water vapor away from the mask.

Gov. Whitmer’s Executive Orders Ruled Unconstitutional By Michigan Supreme Court

Michigan Supreme Court Confirms Whitmer’s Orders Are Out

October 13, 2020

CBS Detroit – After the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Governor Whitmer’s executive orders were unconstitutional under the 1945 Emergency Powers Act, the Governor appealed for clarification that she had a transition window until October 30 to work with the legislature before the court’s orders took effect.

Now Michigan’s highest court has spoken again and as reported by The Detroit News, ruled in a 6-1 decision that the orders had an immediate effect and denied her time to develop further legislation. …

The initial decision by the court ruled the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act was unconstitutional and “are of no continuing legal effect.” The 4-3 decision by Justices Markman, Zahra, Viviano, and Clement who represented the majority said the 1945 law gave legislative authority to the governor’s office.

Immediately after the October 2 ruling, the governor reissued mask and public gathering orders through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services under state health statutes already on the books.

Masking: A Careful Review of the Evidence

So basically the many control trial, reliable RCT studies show no benefit. So those who push masks ignore them, and cite the biased observational studies that are full of errors. And 13 harmful effects from mask wearing are listed, which probably none of these studies researched.

– February 11, 2021

The question on whether to wear a face mask or not during the Covid-19 pandemic remains emotional and contentious. Why? This question about the utility of face coverings (which has taken on a talisman-like life) is now overwrought with steep politicization regardless of political affiliation (e.g. republican or liberal/democrat).

Importantly, the evidence just is and was not there to support mask use for asymptomatic people to stop viral spread during a pandemic. While the evidence may seem conflicted, the evidence (including the peer-reviewed evidence) actually does not support its use and leans heavily toward masks having no significant impact in stopping spread of the Covid virus. 

In fact, it is not unreasonable at this time to conclude that surgical and cloth masks, used as they currently are, have absolutely no impact on controlling the transmission of Covid-19 virus, and current evidence implies that face masks can be actually harmful. All this to say and as so comprehensively documented by Dr. Roger W. Koops in a recent American Institute of Economic Research (AIER) publication, there is no clear scientific evidence that masks (surgical or cloth) work to mitigate risk to the wearer or to those coming into contact with the wearer, as they are currently worn in everyday life and specifically as we refer to Covid-19.
