具有讽刺意味的是,尽管媒体声称面具命令是以科学为基础的,可以”拯救生命”,但事实并非如此。科学实际上被完全忽视了,推荐主要是基于情感上的理由和诱因。如果科学真的被遵循,那么健康人戴的通用面具就不会被推荐——实际上也不可能被推荐。

口罩使命:它们有害而不是有益?Story at a Glance

故事一瞥

While the media claims mask mandates are based on science and will"save lives,"science is actually ignored wholesale and recommendations are primarily pushed based on emotional justifications and triggers

虽然媒体声称掩盖命令是基于科学的,将"拯救生命",但科学实际上被完全忽视,推荐主要是基于情感上的理由和触发器

Recommendations have fluctuated wildly from initially admonishing people to not wear masks,to mandating universal mask wearing by all,including the healthy,to wearing two,three and even four masks,plus goggles and face shields

建议的数量变化很大,从最初告诫人们不要戴口罩,到强制所有人包括健康人戴通用口罩,再到戴两个、三个甚至四个口罩,外加护目镜和面罩

The logical reason for all this flip-flopping is because actual science is being ignored.From the start,the available research has been rather consistent:Mask wearing does not reduce the prevalence of viral illness and asymptomatic spread is exceedingly rare,if not nonexistent

所有这些摇摆不定的逻辑原因是因为实际的科学被忽视了。从一开始,现有的研究就相当一致:戴口罩并不能减少病毒性疾病的流行,无症状传播即使不是不存在,也是极其罕见的

The largest COVID-19-specific mask trial to date found masks may either reduce your risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection by as much as 46%,or increase it by 23%.Either way,the vast majority—97.9%of those who didn't wear masks,and 98.2%of those who did—remained infection free

迄今为止最大的 covid-19特异性口罩试验发现,口罩可以降低多达46% SARS-CoV-2感染风险,或增加23%。不管怎样,绝大多数人(97.9%没有戴口罩的人和98.2%戴口罩的人)都没有受到感染

The U.S.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rely on an anecdotal story about two hair stylists who interacted with clients while symptomatic.Because everyone wore masks in the salon,and none tested positive after exposure,they claim this is evidence that the masks prevented the spread of infection.Meanwhile,other CDC data reveal 85%of confirmed COVID-19 patients used masks"often"or"always"

美国疾病控制和预防中心依赖于一个关于两个发型师在症状出现时与客户互动的轶事故事。因为每个人在沙龙里都戴着口罩,而且没有一个人在接触后检测出阳性,他们声称这是口罩防止传染的证据。与此同时,CDC 的其他数据显示,85%的确诊2019冠状病毒疾病患者"经常""总是"使用口罩

In breathless tones,NBC News recently reported the existence of a business where mask wearing isn't enforced.In the Naples,Florida,grocery store,hardly anyone wears a mask.The store's owner,who the news station claimed"is known for his conservative and often controversial viewpoints,"told a reporter he's never worn a mask in his life and never will.

NBC 新闻最近用气喘吁吁的语调报道了一家不强制戴面具的公司的存在。在那不勒斯,佛罗里达,杂货店,几乎没有人戴面具。据新闻电视台报道,这家商店的老板告诉记者,他一生中从未戴过面具,以后也不会戴。

The store does have a mask policy posted,but video shows that many customers are fine with not wearing one.There is a mask mandate in Naples,but Florida Gov.Ron DeSantis has issued a ruling that makes enforcement of the rule difficult,NBC said.

这家商店确实贴出了口罩政策,但视频显示,许多顾客对不戴口罩没有意见。美国全国广播公司称,那不勒斯有面具禁令,但佛罗里达州州长罗恩·德桑蒂斯已经颁布了一项裁决,使得该规定难以执行。

The irony of the whole thing is that while the media claims mask mandates are based on science and will"save lives,"this simply isn't true.Science is actually being ignored wholesale and recommendations are primarily pushed based on emotional justifications and triggers.If science were actually followed,universal mask wearing by healthy people would not—indeed could not—be recommended.

具有讽刺意味的是,尽管媒体声称面具命令是以科学为基础的,可以"拯救生命",但事实并非如此。科学实际上被完全忽视了,推荐主要是基于情感上的理由和诱因。如果科学真的被遵循,那么健康人戴的通用面具就不会被推荐——实际上也不可能被推荐。

口罩使命:它们有害而不是有益?A Timeline of Unscientific Extremes

非科学极端事件的时间表

From the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,health experts have been unable to unify around a cohesive message about face masks.In February 2020,Surgeon General Jerome Adams sent out a tweet urging Americans to stop buying masks,saying they are"NOT effective."(He has since deleted that tweet.)Adams also warned that if worn or handled improperly,face masks can increase your risk of infection.

2019冠状病毒疾病大流行开始,卫生专家就无法就口罩的问题达成一致意见。20202月,美国卫生局局长杰罗姆·亚当斯(Jerome Adams)发布了一条推特,敦促美国人停止购买口罩,称口罩"没有效果"(他后来删除了那条推文。)亚当斯还警告说,如果佩戴或处理不当,口罩可能会增加感染的风险。

Similarly,in March 2020,Dr.Anthony Fauci stated that"people should not be walking around with masks"because"it's not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is."Logically,only symptomatic individuals and health care workers were urged to wear them.

同样,20203月,安东尼·福奇(Anthony Fauci)博士表示,"人们不应该戴着口罩到处走",因为"它没有提供人们认为的完美保护"从逻辑上讲,只有有症状的个人和医护人员才会被要求佩戴。

Fauci even pointed out that mask wearing has"unintended consequences"as"people keep fiddling with their mask and they keep touching their face,"which may actually increase the risk of contracting and/or spreading the virus.

福西甚至指出,戴口罩有"意外后果",因为"人们不断摆弄他们的口罩,他们不断接触他们的脸",这实际上可能增加感染和/或传播病毒的风险。

By June 2020,universal mask mandates became the norm and we were told we had to wear them because there may be asymptomatic super-spreaders among us.Interestingly enough,that same month,the World Health Organization admitted that asymptomatic transmission was"very rare."[Emphasis added]If that's true,then why should healthy,asymptomatic people mask up?

20206月,通用口罩规定成为常态,我们被告知必须戴口罩,因为我们当中可能有无症状的超级传播者。有趣的是,同一个月,世界卫生组织承认无症状传播是"非常罕见的"[强调补充]如果这是真的,那么为什么健康的、没有症状的人要戴上面具呢?

By July 2020,Fauci claimed his initial dismissal of face masks had been in error and that he'd downplayed their importance simply to ensure there would be a sufficient supply for health care workers,who need them most.

20207月,福奇声称他最初解除面罩的决定是错误的,他淡化了面罩的重要性,只是为了确保最需要面罩的卫生保健工作者有足够的供应。

Fast-forward a few weeks,and by the end of July 2020,Fauci went to the next extreme,floating the recommendation to wear goggles and full face shields in addition to a mask,ostensibly because the mucous membranes of your eyes could potentially serve as entryways for viruses as well.

快进几个星期,到20207月底,福奇走到了另一个极端,他建议除了戴口罩外,还要戴护目镜和全面面罩,表面上看是因为你眼睛的粘膜也可能成为病毒的入口通道。

This despite the fact that a March 31,2020,report in JAMA Ophthalmology found SARS-CoV-2-positive conjunctival specimens(i.e.,specimens taken from the eye)in just 5.2%of confirmed COVID-19 patients(two out of 28).

尽管2020331日《美国医学会眼科杂志》的一份报告指出,只有5.2%的确诊2019冠状病毒疾病患者的结膜标本(即从眼部采集的标本)中发现 sars-cov-2阳性。

What's more,contamination of the eyes is likely primarily the result of touching your eyes with contaminated fingers.If you wear goggles or a face shield,you may actually be more prone to touch your eyes to rub away sweat,condensation and/or scratch an itch.

更重要的是,眼睛的污染很可能主要是由于手指触摸眼睛造成的。如果你戴护目镜或面罩,你可能更容易触摸你的眼睛,擦去汗水,冷凝和/或抓痒。

Toward the end of November 2020,the asymptomatic spread narrative was effectively destroyed by the publication of a Chinese study involving nearly 9.9 million individuals.It revealed not a single case of COVID-19 could be traced to an asymptomatic individual who had tested positive.[Emphasis added]

202011月底,一项涉及近990万人的中国研究的发表,有效地摧毁了无症状传播叙事。结果显示,没有一个2019冠状病毒疾病病例可以追溯到经检测呈阳性的无症状个体。[强调语气]

Around December 2020,recommendations for double-masking emerged,and this trend gained momentum through extensive media coverage as we moved into the first weeks of 2021.Undeterred by scientific evidence and logic alike,by the end of January 2021,"experts"started promoting the use of three or even four masks,whether you're symptomatic or not.

202012月左右,出现了双重遮蔽的建议,随着我们进入2021年的头几周,这一趋势通过广泛的媒体报道得到了推动。20211月底,"专家"不顾科学证据和逻辑,开始推广使用三个甚至四个口罩,无论你是否有症状。

These recommendations quickly sparked a mild backlash,with other experts encouraging the return to common sense,as wearing three or more masks may impair airflow,which can worsen any number of health conditions.

这些建议很快引发了轻微的反弹,其他专家鼓励回归常识,因为戴三个或更多的口罩可能会损害气流,这可能会恶化任何数量的健康状况。

True to form,while promoting the concept of double-masking as recently as January 29,2021,by February 1,Fauci conceded"There is no data that indicates double-masking is effective,"but that"There are many people who feel…if you really want to have an extra little bit of protection,'maybe I should put two masks on.'"In other words,the suggestion is based on emotion,not actual science.

一如既往,直到2021129日,也就是21日,福奇还在推广双重掩蔽的概念,他承认"没有数据表明双重掩蔽是有效的",但是"有很多人觉得......如果你真的想要得到一点额外的保护,'也许我应该戴上两个面具。"'。换句话说,这个建议是基于情感,而不是真正的科学。

The logical reason for all this flip-flopping is because actual science is NOT being taken into account.From the start,the available research has been rather consistent:Mask wearing does not reduce the prevalence of viral illness and asymptomatic spread is exceedingly rare,if not nonexistent.

所有这些摇摆不定的逻辑原因是因为实际的科学没有被考虑在内。从一开始,现有的研究就相当一致:戴口罩并不能减少病毒性疾病的流行,无症状传播即使不是不存在,也是极其罕见的。

Both of these scientific consensuses negate the rationale for universal mask wearing by healthy(asymptomatic)people.The only time mask wearing makes sense is in a hospital setting and if you are actually symptomatic and need to be around others,and even then,you need to be aware that it provides only limited protection.[Emphasis added]

这些科学共识都否定了健康人(无症状)戴普遍口罩的理论基础。只有在医院里戴口罩才有意义,如果你确实有症状,需要和其他人在一起,即使这样,你也需要意识到它只能提供有限的保护。[强调语气]

The reason for this is because the virus is aerosolized and spreads through the air.Aerosolized viruses—especially SARS-CoV-2,which is about half the size of influenza viruses—cannot be blocked by a mask,as explained in my interview with Denis Rancourt,who has conducted a thorough review of the published science on masks and viral transmission.

这是因为病毒被雾化并通过空气传播。我在接受丹尼斯·兰科特(Denis Rancourt)采访时解释说,雾化病毒——尤其是约为流感病毒一半大小的 SARS-CoV-2病毒——无法被口罩阻挡。兰科特对已发表的关于口罩和病毒传播的科学研究进行了彻底的回顾。

According to Rancourt,"NONE of these well-designed studies that are intended to remove observational bias found a statistically significant advantage of wearing a mask versus not wearing a mask."

根据 Rancourt 的说法,"这些设计良好的研究都没有发现戴面具比不戴面具有统计学意义上的显著优势,这些研究旨在消除观察偏差。"

COVID-19 Specific Mask Trial Failed to Prove Benefit

2019冠状病毒疾病特定口罩试验未能证明其有益

While most mask studies have looked at influenza,the first COVID-19-specific randomized controlled surgical mask trial,published November 18,2020,confirmed previous findings,showing that:

虽然大多数口罩研究着眼于流感,但20201118日发表的第一个 covid-19特异性随机对照外科口罩试验证实了以前的研究结果,表明:

a.Masks may reduce your risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection by as much as 46%,or it may actually increase your risk by 23%

口罩可以降低 SARS-CoV-2感染的风险高达46%,或者实际上可能增加23%的风险

b.The vast majority—97.9%of those who didn't wear masks,and 98.2%of those who did—remained infection free

B.绝大多数人(97.9%的未戴口罩者和98.2%的戴口罩者)仍然没有受到感染

The study included 3,030 individuals assigned to wear a surgical face mask and 2,994 unmasked controls.Of them,80.7%completed the study.Based on the adherence scores reported,46%of participants always wore the mask as recommended,47%predominantly as recommended and 7%failed to follow recommendations.

这项研究包括3030个被分配戴外科口罩的人和2994个未戴口罩的对照组。其中80.7%的人完成了这项研究。根据坚持度分数报告,46%的参与者总是按照推荐戴面具,47%主要按照推荐戴面具,7%没有按照推荐戴面具。

Among mask wearers,1.8%ended up testing positive for SARS-CoV-2,compared to 2.1%among controls.When they removed the people who reported not adhering to the recommendations for use,the results remained the same—1.8%,which suggests adherence makes no significant difference.

在戴口罩者中,1.8%的人最终检测出 SARS-CoV-2阳性,而对照组中这一比例为2.1%。当他们移除那些报告不遵守推荐使用的人时,结果仍然是相同的ー1.8%,这表明遵守并没有显著差异。

Among those who reported wearing their face mask"exactly as instructed,"2%tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 compared to 2.1%of the controls.So,essentially,we're destroying economies and lives around the world to protect a tiny minority from getting a positive PCR test result which,as detailed in"Asymptomatic'Casedemic'Is a Perpetuation of Needless Fear,"means little to nothing.[Emphasis added]

在那些"完全按照指示"戴口罩的人中,2%的人 SARS-CoV-2检测呈阳性,而对照组的这一比例为2.1%。因此,从本质上讲,我们正在摧毁世界各地的经济和生活,以保护极少数人不会得到阳性 PCR 检测结果,正如《无症状'个案流行病'是无谓恐惧的延续》一文所详述的那样,这种结果几乎毫无意义。[强调语气]

CDC Relies on Anecdotal Data to Promote Mask Use

美国疾病控制与预防中心利用传闻数据推广口罩使用

If you want additional proof that health authorities are not concerned with following the best available science,look no further than the U.S.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.What do they rely on as the primary piece of"evidence"to back up its mask recommendation?

如果你想要更多的证据来证明卫生当局并不关心遵循最好的可用科学,那么看看美国疾病控制和预防中心吧。他们依靠什么作为主要的"证据"来支持他们的面具推荐?

A wholly anecdotal story about two symptomatic hair stylists who interacted with 139 clients during eight days is all they offer.Sixty-seven of the clients agreed to be interviewed and tested.None tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

他们提供的仅仅是一个关于两个有症状的发型师在八天内与139个客户互动的完全轶事故事。67名客户同意接受面谈和测试。没有检测出 SARS-CoV-2阳性。

The fact that the stylists and all clients"universally wore masks in the salon"is therefore seen as evidence that the masks prevented the spread of infection.The Danish study reviewed above didn't even make it onto the CDC's list of studies.

因此,造型师和所有客户"在沙龙普遍戴面具"这一事实被视为面具防止了感染传播的证据。上面提到的丹麦研究甚至没有被列入疾病预防控制中心的研究清单。

The CDC's own data also show 70.6%of COVID-19 patients reported"always"wearing a cloth mask or face covering in the 14 days preceding their illness;14.4%reported having worn a mask"often."So,a total of 85%of people who came down with COVID-19 had"often"or"always"worn a mask.

疾病防治中心自己的数据也显示,70.6%2019冠状病毒疾病患者在患病前14"总是"戴着布面具或面罩;14.4%的患者报告说"经常"戴着面具因此,总共有85%2019冠状病毒疾病患者"经常""总是"带着口罩。

This too contradicts the idea that mask wearing will protect against the infection,and is probably a slightly more reliable indicator of effectiveness than the anecdotal hairdresser story.

这也与戴口罩可以预防感染的观点相矛盾,而且可能是一个比传闻中的理发师故事更可靠的效果指标。

Another recent investigation revealed the same trend,showing that states with mask mandates had an average of 27 positive SARS-CoV-2"cases"per 100,000 people,whereas states with no mask mandates had just 17 cases per 100,000.I reviewed these and other findings in my December 31,2020,article,"Mask Mandates Are Absolutely Useless."

最近的另一项调查显示了同样的趋势,显示有口罩授权的州平均每10万人有27 SARS-CoV-2阳性"病例",而没有口罩授权的州平均每10万人只有17例。我在20201231日的文章《面具命令是完全无用的》中回顾了这些和其他一些发现

Masks Don't Protect Against Smoke

口罩不能防烟雾

The CDC also contradicts its own conclusions that masks protect against viral spread by specifying that wearing a cloth face mask will NOT protect you against wildfire smoke,because"they do not catch small,harmful particles in smoke that can harm your health."To get any protection from harmful smoke particles,you'd have to use an N95 respirator.

美国疾病控制与预防中心还反驳了自己的结论,即口罩可以防止病毒传播,但他们指出,戴布面罩不能防止野火烟雾,因为"它们不会在烟雾中捕捉到可能危害健康的微小有害颗粒"为了防止有害的烟雾颗粒,你必须使用 N95呼吸器。

The particulate matter in wildfire smoke can range from 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller in smoke and haze,to 10 micrometers in wind-blown dust.SARS-CoV-2,meanwhile,has a diameter between 0.06 and 0.14 micrometers,far tinier than the particulate found in smoke.

野火烟气中的颗粒物直径可达2.5微米或更小,在烟雾中可达10微米。同时,SARS-CoV-2的直径在0.060.14微米之间,比烟雾中发现的微粒要小得多。

SARS-CoV-2 is also about half the size of most viruses,which tend to measure between 0.02 microns to 0.3 microns.Meanwhile,virus-laden saliva or respiratory droplets expelled when talking or coughing measure between 5 and 10 micrometers.

SARS-CoV-2的大小也是大多数病毒的一半,这些病毒的尺寸一般在0.02微米到0.3微米之间。与此同时,说话或咳嗽时带有病毒的唾液或呼吸道飞沫可达510微米。

N95 masks can filter particles as small as 0.3 microns,so they may prevent a majority of respiratory droplets from escaping,but not aerosolized viruses.Influenza viruses and SARS-CoV-2 are small enough to float in the air column,so as long as you can still breathe,they can flow in and out of your respiratory tract.

N95口罩可以过滤0.3微米的微粒,因此它们可以阻止大多数呼吸道飞沫的逃逸,但不能阻止雾化病毒的逃逸。流感病毒和 SARS-CoV-2很小,可以漂浮在空气柱中,所以只要你还能呼吸,它们就可以在你的唿吸道中进进出出。
