With Growing Divide on Need for Outside ‘Mask Mandates,’ Doctor Demonstrates Masks Don’t Protect You

Doctor uses vape clouds to illustrate how masks do not work

Following the Globe’s article about the Stanford University/NIH study that demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt that face masks have absolutely zero chance of preventing the spread of Covid-19, the San Jose Mercury News asks today, “When can we stop wearing masks outdoors? Is it safe to step outdoors without our mouths wrapped in cloth?”

To answer that question, the Mercury News asked academic public health doctors:

UC San Francisco infectious disease expert Dr. Monica Gandhi, an early proponent of mask-wearing, said masks still make sense in some outdoors settings, such as crowded political rallies or music festivals.

Support for a shift is also coming from other prominent physicians, such as Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island; Dr. Eric Topol, founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla; and Dr. Paul Sax, clinical director of infectious diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, among others.

The Mercury News avoided the university in their backyard, Stanford, which just released a study on the National Center for Biotechnological Information government website, which found: “The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective of viral and infectious disease such as SARS-CoV-2 and COVID -19.”

Just published Wednesday on LewRockwell.com, a Doctor uses vape clouds to illustrate how masks do not work.

The video is priceless.

The doctor takes a deep drag on his vape pipe, puts the mask back on and exhales. The vape clouds go everywhere.

The Mercury News digs in even more, managing to find a doctor to keep the mask fear alive and do what the governor says:

Now that we finally have widespread mask-wearing compliance, why encourage people to stop?

“It’s premature. I think we need to stay the course and hang with what the governor says,” said Dr. George Rutherford, an epidemiologist at UC San Francisco.

Only 25.8% of Californians of all ages are fully vaccinated, he noted. That means almost three quarters of us remain vulnerable. We should wait until June 15 to reconsider outdoor mask mandates, he said.

“As we as we get closer to having everyone vaccinated, especially adolescents, I think we can start talking about it. But now we need to exercise caution, even if (the virus) isn’t banging on the doors of the hospitals,” he said.

“There are a lot of uninfected people around,” he said. “There’s a lot of transmission around.”

How is it that if we have more than 20 million Californians vaccinated, according to Dr. Rutherford that is only 25.8% – there are nearly 40 million California residents in the state. My math says probably more than half of the state has been vaccinated.

“George W. Rutherford is an Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology and Health Administration,” his bio says. His primary research interest is in the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases, with a particular emphasis on HIV/AIDS in low-and middle-income countries.”

The doctor below shows us that the masks – cloth, surgical, cup mask, shop respirator mask like a N95 – not only don’t stop aerosols, which are the same size as COVID-19 or larger, they go right through and around the masks.

Aerosols are not affected by the mask, he says.

The doctor concludes, “There is absolutely nothing that any of these masks do to protect you from me. And the fact is that unless I have a mask that is fully sealed, and where I breathe through the fully filtered material both directions, and I have a really high quality filter, nothing is going to protect in either direction.

  1. Please repeat what you said I have to ask, When your words are hidden behind that mask.
    I can’t see the weather worn in your face, That speaks to me of our history’s place.
    Are you happy or are you sad, it’s hard to tell, Keeping at a distance in an isolated cell.
    Standing here in line apart by six feet, How can we as neighbors, share and meet?
    I feel all alone without your expressive face, I miss the smile, the nod, that connective place.
    This cover helps to suspend the fears, Makes us FEEL safer amongst our peers.
    These rules stifle the communicative man, Temporary, let us hope, this facial ban.

    1. Tomorrow: This is great — it captures so much of what is wrong with the mask foolishness.
      Thanks for posting it.

      1. Don’t wear a mask. Don’t give in to the commies forcing you to. Get in their face! Refuse to shop at stores where you’re greeted at the door by a commie telling you to put your mask on. Places like Traitor Joes, Costco, BargainMarket. Look the purpled haired, tatted up nose ringed, minimum wage earner to F off. Fight back or suck it up, your choice.

  2. Obviously the reason the mask trolls come in the windows every time facts are posted at The Globe or elsewhere on this subject is that the masks are invaluable for Dear Leader, Inc. to eternally keep the jackboot on our necks. Masks muzzle us, socially isolate us, weaken us psychologically and physically, enforce conformity and compliance to something that doesn’t make sense, and are a public manifestation of the fear these people want to keep going at all costs. For these malevolent “public servants” there is literally no downside to keeping the absurd mask mandate going.

  3. Wanted to post again this classic Theodore Dalrymple quote that bears repeating in this “era of the mask” and all of the other nonsensical mandates we are enduring:
    “….In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control…..”
    ― Theodore Dalrymple

  4. How does UCSF have any credibility remaining after pushing this useless and unnecessary mask nonsense?

    Our medical institutions have been compromised.

  5. The Stanford study is not the final word; it’s just the latest word on the subject of masks and their invalidity. Solid scientists have been exposing the mask fraud for an entire year already — well before Stanford decided to opt in. There is NO SCIENCE supporting the idea that masks prevent viruses from spreading — NONE. Dr. Monica Ghandi’s comments otherwise are completely without any scientific support at all, just mewling agreement with the status quo which is erroneous and dangerous to begin with. She’s another mouthpiece for tyranny and likely has been paid off in some way. We all must become aware of the CDC’s little-known Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS ) which creates disinformation on a scale that must make the CIA jealous and actually seeks recruits. Is Ghandi one of the EIS’s scouts? And those spineless bureaucrats who bow down to Newsom’s mandates — how useless are they!? Newsom’s mandates aren’t based on any scientific evidence either!

  6. I am not sure how it can be argued that the above video demonstrates that masks are effective because the vapors stay close to his head????. The point is aerosols escape, think mosquitos through a chain link fence.

    Funny, this gave me an idea, next time I am asked to mask up, I will vape and let the gas escape, maybe a visual in real time will knock some sense into the masked obsessed. All joking aside, what will it take to convince the mask supporters that it will not protect against all viruses including the novel, mysterious, strange Covid19 !

      1. Yep, exactly in that context ShowandTell.. It is nice to be understood.????
        It would get a lot of looks but would it turn on the light bulb?????

  7. I abhor masks. Masks are ineffective against respiratory viruses, and the vectors of transmission is through contact, not airborne. One must have an elevated or low grade fever for the body to produce a viral lode large enough to be contagious. Above 100 degrees, stay home, or what is now called “quarantine”, a much scarier word…So many have lost their common sense, and equate this virus like there is nuclear fallout in the air. Break the habit of bringing your unwashed hands to your face, specifically your eyes and mouth, and you will drastically reduce catching colds and flu. I can’t remember the last time I had a cold let alone a flu by following my own advice. Have confidence and simply stop wearing masks and defy the unconstitutional health order/mandate. There is no law, (and many know, governors can not make laws) it is a mandate. Per California Department of Public Health, which most retailers/restaurants say they must follow to be open, simply use/say, I have a “medical condition” ( physical or mental; and you are protected under HIPPA privacy laws from being asked about your condition) to enter maskless. Use “against your religious beliefs” 2 Corinthians 3-18 (CA GOV Code 12926 q ). I shop/go out mask free nearly everywhere, and simply refuse to do business with any establishment that does not acknowledge or are aware of the exemptions. “When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty” Thomas Jefferson. Be Courageous.

  8. The government posted a peer reviewed study by Stanford doctors showing that not only are masks ineffective, they are making us sick.

    {Enter W’s here} .ncbi.nlm.nih {DOT} gov/pmc/articles/PMC7680614/

    1. Fred, I followed the link you gave. I thought the article was good. Did you see that it has been retracted? I still think the article is good. The retraction is weird.

  9. A doctor somewhere commented on this story saying “If cloth underwear can’t stop a fart what makes you think a cloth mask can stop aerosolized covid”???

  10. Those of us that can steam a mirror have KNOWN from day ONE that face masks not only NEVER work against ANY virus, but they in FACT CAUSE you to get sick and REMAIN sick till you die
