    • Wuhan Metro Line2 Masks:  "As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “ None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”1   Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission."  Dr. R. Blaylock   .... skimming all the way to the bottom line... those who are going to die 'with' covid1984 are going to die 'with' covid1984 and those who are not, are not - period.   For now, let's set aside the untold future consequences of lockdowns and masks - interventions humans discovered a hundred years ago didn't work - and just look at right now.  Right now, the number of direct deaths from the vaccine jab is rapidly catching up with the number of lives saved by all those lockdowns and masks ... yep I know I'm a heretic for so blatantly throwing up numbers that aren't in line with the narrative... but, in my view, that mainstream narrative is based on corrupt govt using corrupt science on you... and you're still standing for it?
