Dr. Rancourt: Masks and Respirators Do Not Work

Dr. Rancourt: Masks and Respirators Do Not Work - A Review of Science Relevant to Curbing Covid-19 Transmission - Fort Russ

Abstract

Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles. Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle. The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.

Conclusion Regarding that Masks Do Not Work

No RCT study with verified outcome shows a benefit for HCW or community members in
households to wearing a mask or respirator. There is no such study. There are no exceptions.

Likewise, no study exists that shows a benefit from a broad policy to wear masks in public
(more on this below).

Furthermore, if there were any benefit to wearing a mask, because of the blocking power
against droplets and aerosol particles, then there should be more benefit from wearing a
respirator (N95) compared to a surgical mask, yet several large meta-analyses, and all the RCT,
prove that there is no such relative benefit.

Masks and respirators do not work.

Multi-system inflammatory syndrome in kids being associated with COVID-19 - NOT SO FAST!

Now the corrupt vaccine distribution sales force (aka, the CDC) is telling us that kids are dying from COVID-19 due to multi-system inflammatory syndrome, except the evidence indicates otherwise.

From Children's Health Defense...

Inflammatory Syndrome Affecting Children: Kawasaki Disease, COVID-19 . . . or Something Else? • Children's Health Defense

There are many medical uncertainties swirling around the COVID-19 story, but one widely accepted observation has been that children are among the least affected, both in number and symptom severity. At least until recently. In the United Kingdom, elsewhere in Europe and in a handful of locations in the U.S. (including New York, New Haven, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area), reports are surfacing of a pediatric inflammatory syndrome that many are rushing to blame on COVID-19. New York State has attributed the deaths of up to five children to the mystery ailment that, in some cases, has resulted in multisystem organ failure.

The potpourri of symptoms “striking newborns and teenagers alike” has prompted clinicians to draw comparisons to the rare childhood inflammatory condition called Kawasaki disease (KD) as well as to toxic shock syndrome (a condition resulting from poisoning by bacterial toxins). Years before COVID-19 came on the scene, the CDC estimated that about 5,450 children, primarily under age five, are hospitalized for KD each year in the U.S.—the equivalent of about 15 every day. While rare compared to other childhood diseases, KD attracts concern as the leading cause of pediatric acquired coronary artery disease, with life-threatening aneurysms being a possible outcome.

By early May, while affirming that the new syndrome was “Kawasaki-like,” some researchers were suggesting that “It’s really beyond that” and were latching onto COVID-19 as a convenient explanation—even though, in New York, well under half (40%) of the affected children had tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 with PCR testing. Hypothesizing that the illness could be a late-stage inflammatory reaction to SARS-CoV-2 infection, doctors baptized the apparently new inflammatory syndrome as “pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome temporally associated with COVID-19,” later settling on the more acronym-friendly “pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome” (PIMS).

[...]

This is not the first time that scientists have tried to pin the blame for KD on a coronavirus. In 2005—in the aftermath of the early-2000s SARS outbreak that first propelled human coronaviruses into popular awareness—Yale University researchers reported identifying a “New Haven coronavirus” (HCoV-NH) in the respiratory secretions of eight children with KD as well as one child with a respiratory tract infection. Noting the longstanding suspicion that an “elusive” infectious agent or an “abnormal immune response to infection” might be the cause of KD, the Yale authors proposed consideration of HCoV-NH as a candidate. However, describing human coronaviruses as “ubiquitous,” they admitted to being stumped as to why KD would arise only “in a relatively small number of children.” There was no follow-up publication.

When researchers conducted studies of the Bexero meningococcal B vaccine in European adolescents and infants from about 2008 to 2010, “most” vaccine recipients experienced skin redness, over half reported high fever and six children developed KS; researchers saw only one case of KS in the control group (who received four other vaccines for seven diseases, but not Bexero). In addition, Bexero produced reports of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Commenting on synergistic effects, researchers noted Bexero’s association with “more solicited systemic adverse events (particularly fever) . . . when coadministered with routine infant vaccines than when these vaccines were administered alone.” In September 2015, the UK became the first country in the world to start administering three doses of Bexero to infants in their first year of life. UK researchers were also the first to publish a report about the new “COVID-19-related” inflammatory syndrome in April 2020.

Bill Gates And The Population Control Grid

The takeover of public health that we have documented in How Bill Gates Monopolized Global Health and the remarkably brazen push to vaccinate everyone on the planet that we have documented in Bill Gates' Plan to Vaccinate the World was not, at base, about money. The unimaginable wealth that Gates has accrued is now being used to purchase something much more useful: control. Control not just of the global health bodies that can coordinate a worldwide vaccination program, or the governments that will mandate such an unprecedented campaign, but control over the global population itself.

Forced vaccinations?

I've been asked a few times whether there would be forced vaccinations as a result of the coronavirus non-crisis and my answer was that i doubt it because the push-back would be too great; it would be just as effective to restrict movement instead (no shot? no grocery story/work/travel/etc.). Florida seems to be pushing this boundary however and the question is whether this model will be rolled out elsewhere.

This U.S. State Has Already Established Legal Means for Mandatory Vaccinations

While the U.S. government and global health “authorities” debate how quickly they can roll out Contact Tracing surveillance programs and fast track vaccines, Americans are left wondering and debating over whether the vaccinations programs for COVID-19 might end up being mandatory.

Mandatory Vaccinations

We decided to fact check this meme to see if there was truth to the claim and, unfortunately, the document is in fact a Florida state document. Here’s what we found:

The document is called, “COVID-19 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH MANDATORY SELF-ISOLATION AIRPORT TRAVEL,” and can be found on the official website of the Florida Airports Council. The form asks travelers to put their home address, a detailed description of the trip, and the names and birth dates to family members who traveled with the person filling out the form.

At the bottom of the form it states the following:

I UNDERSTAND THAT ANY INDIVIDUAL IN MY FAMILY WHO VIOLATES THE SELF-ISOLATION OR SELF-QUARANTINE BY FAILING TO REMAIN WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE ADDRESS I PROVIDED FOR MY STAY IN FLORIDA FOR THE MANDATORY LENGTH OF TIME, CAN BE SUBJECT TO PROSECUTION UNDER SECTIONS 252.50 OR 381.00315(6), FLORIDA STATUTES, WHICH IF CONVICTED IS PUNISHABLE UP TO 60 DAYS IMPRISONMENT, A FINE NOT MORE THAN $500.00, OR BOTH.

Additionally, it says:

Pursuant to Executive Order 20-80 and the Florida Department of Health declaration of a Public Health Emergency, the State Health Officer and Surgeon General can order any individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated or quarantined for COVID-19. Any isolation or quarantine order issued pursuant to section 318.00315, Florida Statutes, shall be enforceable by injunction filed in a Florida Circuit Court.

Finally, passengers are reminded that, “Failure to follow any isolation or quarantine order by the Florida Department of Health is a second-degree misdemeanor.”
