“The CDC is once again promoting policies with no basis in scientific fact, but these policies are reflexively accepted by those whom we trust to care for our children. Covid may be “over” for many of us, but not so for many of our children,” wrote Dr. Robert Malone.
According to Wikipedia, by the beginning of April 2020, prominent national and intergovernmental health agencies and their leaders had recommended the use of masks to “reduce transmission, including the [World Health Organisation] WHO, American, European and Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, and American immunologist and NIAID Director Anthony Fauci.”
By August 2020 more than 50 countries had made face coverings compulsory when people were outside their own homes “in an attempt to slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus.”
In March 2021, an estimated 129 billion face masks were used per month. In April 2021, Masks4all noted that more than 40 countries had mandated the use of face masks. Masks4all were campaigning for masks to be made compulsory in all US states because, in their unscientific, misguided and harmful view: “We need every state to enforce mask-wearing in public … If you go out without a mask, you might kill someone. You wouldn’t even know it. If you see someone out without a mask, they could kill you.”
And those who profit from selling face masks seem to be hopeful the use of face masks will continue for the foreseeable future. An article in May 2022 published by MarketWatch stated that over the next five years the disposable face masks market will register a magnificent spike in [compound annual growth rate] CAGR in terms of revenue, The disposable face masks market revenue … will reach multi-million USD in 2026, with a magnificent CAGR during 2020-2026.”
