STUDY: masks might make COVID worse

A massive study covering 35 European countries (602 million people) concluded that wearing COVID masks did not reduce transmission or deaths and may have exasperated the virus.

In the peer-reviewed study published in the journal Cureus, Dr. Beny Spira reviewed every European country with at least 1 million people between October 2020 – March 2021, when “the entire continent was undergoing an outburst of COVID-19.”

Mask mandates and compliance across these countries varied significantly, from 5 per cent to 95 per cent. By comparing each respective country’s infection and death statistics, along with these mask-wearing percentages, Spira drew two conclusions: 

“While no cause-effect conclusions could be inferred from this observational analysis, the lack of negative correlations between mask usage and COVID-19 cases and deaths suggest that the widespread use of masks at a time when an effective intervention was most needed, i.e., during the strong 2020-2021 autumn-winter peak, was not able to reduce COVID-19 transmission. Moreover, the moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe also suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences.” [Emphasis added]

Of course, previous studies draw contrary conclusions, but Spira argues they falsely attributed mask mandates as having efficacy when in reality, they were implemented at the tail end of COVID waves.

Spira is yet another scientist who has discovered that masks may have harmful effects on public health. As previously reported by The Counter Signal, a separate study found that microplastics in face masks could have exacerbated the virus and caused many health problems.

Furthermore, it isn’t unreasonable to assume Canadian authorities are unaware of these studies or they arbitrarily pick and choose what “science” to follow.

Canada’s state broadcasting company, the CBC, just wrote an article about three “top doctors” in Ontario writing to the provincial health authorities to reimpose mask mandates.

Politicians, too, have demanded mask mandates return, and Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer Moore recently said they could come back by the Fall.
