Real-World Data Proves Mandated Covid-19 Face Masks Demonic

A year of COVID-19 panic has not changed my mind as to the gross misrepresentation of this illness and the resultant downfall of society.

The Sham of the Face Mask


Regardless of what mechanistic laboratory experiments show, regardless of what models say, regardless of what confident, credentialed researchers writing in prestigious journals say, regardless of the popular push to encourage everybody to wear face masks to control COVID-19, reality proves all this wrong.

Real numbers from the real world of experience prove all this wrong.

Honest observations and rational understanding of these observations prove all this wrong.

No amount of innovative product design, creative marketing, or clever persuasion can change what reality reveals to us -- that face masks positively do not do what many people claim that they do.

One Graph Says It All

The above graph shows daily new confirmed cases of COVID-19 for the countries of Sweden, France, India, Italy, Spain, United States, United Kingdom, for the period from December 1, 2020 to April 21, 2021. The colored curves show the progression of COVID-19 cases for the respective countries over this time.

The graph might appear to be visually overwhelming, but be patient, and focus on it in the way that I explain in the remainder of this article.

Pay particular attention to the sets of arrows, which indicate points on the curves where I am comparing face-mask use.

United States vs. India

United States vs. India

Notice the set of arrows labeled with the letter, "a", which mark the points on the United States and India curves, where both countries were at 77% of their populations wearing masks. Notice that the United States COVID-19 curve was at 504 cases-per-million, while (at the same time) the India COVID-19 curve was at 28 cases-per-million.

The same percentage of the population in both countries was using masks, but United States cases-per-million were eighteen times as many as India cases-per-million. This says nothing about the effectiveness of masks to lower case numbers. This says that masks have nothing to do with lowering case numbers.

Look again:

  • 77% mask use in one country, with 28 cases-per-million.
  • 77% mask use in another country, with 504 cases-per-million.

Where is the evidence for mask effectiveness there? It does not exist.

United Kingdom vs. India

United Kingdom vs. India

Now notice the set of arrows labeled with the letter, "b", which mark points on the United Kingdom and India curves, where India was at 77% mask use and the United Kingdom was at 74% mask use. Here India, at 77% mask use, was at 13 cases-per-million, while the United Kingdom, at 74% mask use, was at 881 cases-per-million.

In other words, the United Kingdom had over sixty-seven times as many cases-per-million as India, with just 3% less of the population wearing masks. Both countries had very similar percentages of their populations wearing masks, but one country showed sixty-seven times as many cases-per-million as the other country. Again, this says nothing about the effectiveness of masks to lower case numbers.

Look again:

  • 77% mask use in one country, with 13 cases-per-million.
  • 74% mask use in another country, with 881 cases-per-million.

No evidence for mask effectiveness exists there.

Spain vs. India

Spain vs. India

Next, look at the set of arrows labeled with the letter, "c", which mark points on the Spain and India curves, where India was at 77% mask use and Spain was at 87% mask use. Here India, at 77% mask use, was at 9 cases-per-million, while Spain, at 87% mask use, was at 791 cases-per-million.

With 10% more of its population wearing face masks than India, Spain had over eighty-seven times as many cases-per-million. To put it another way, Spain exceeded India in its use of face masks, and yet it had over eighty-seven times as many cases-per-million. Once again, there was zero evidence for face-mask effectiveness here. Face masks did not have any effect whatsoever on lowering case numbers.

Look at two arrows labeled, "c", again:

  • 77% mask use in one country, with 9 cases-per-million.
  • 87% mask use in another country, with 791 cases-per-million.

Again, no evidence here.

COVID-19 Cases Evolve Independent of Face Mask Use

Finally, look at the two arrows labeled, "d". Here, Spain (at 87% mask use) had more cases-per-million than Sweden (at only 32% mask use). Also, Spain and Italy (both at over 80% mask use) had cases-per-million 37 times and 25 times as many, respectively, as India (at 77% mask use).

Farther on in time, the curves continue to evolve irrespective of the percentage of the populations wearing face masks. The case-growth curves go through peaks and valleys regardless of face masks. Those percentages for each curve apply to the entire curve for the entire period -- they are averages over the entire period. You see extreme peaks, followed by extreme valleys for the same percentage of face-mask use.

Yet the Frightening Clown Show of Face Masks Goes On

This data is readily available to anyone who would seek it out. Reasonable government leaders would have already sought out this data. Rational thinking individuals would have welcomed the truth revealed by this data. Ignoring this data has been tantamount to mass negligence on the part of everybody promoting mass mask use to limit the spread of COVID-19.

I believe that key leaders understand the reality of this data, yet the sheer momentum of a flawed idea prevents these leaders from acting responsibly and honorably, as they should.

I believe that key companies now have a financial interest in keeping the mask mania going.

I believe that key officials want to treat adults like children and control them with a symbol that shows compliance.

Other than habit, profit, or control, there is positively no valid health reason and no ethical reason to continue advocating mass face mask use for COVID-19.
