CDC: Wearing a Mask Could Keep YOU From Catching Covid. If You Are a Mannequin, that is?!

CDC: Covid Prevention For the Mask Wearer?

Are you a mannequin? Made of plastic or some other petroleum product? With an empty headed and a vacuous stare? A dullard who never says anything of interest? Or anything at all?  Perhaps you are obsessed with the latest fashion? And are deeply indebted for it all? If you fit that description this latest "scientific briefing" is JUST for YOU!  Or a reasonable facsimile of a live aware being you might just be? Whichever?

Live Or LARPing

Priceless “science” from the CDC. Check the manipulative language.   

The CDC posted a new scientific brief discussing recent studies finding that a wearer gets some protection.

A scientific brief?

“The agency’s guidance didn’t change.”

In spite of this insightful scientific brief? Imagine that?

“Agency officials were influenced by a recent study led by Japanese researchers who used mannequin heads and artificial respirators to simulate the spread of coronavirus particles through the air, and assess how well masks blocked transmission.”

Influenced by a study of mannequin heads and artificial respirators. Well, that’s real world, right?! Not even going to touch the “conclusions” from a “scientific brief” that involved mannequin heads, respirators and masks..

“The study didn’t perfectly mimic most real-world situations. For example, the heads were closer together than six feet, and the exhaling mannequin head was doing more of a constant cough than regular breathing.”           

Say it isn't so! Coughing mannequins didn't perfectly mimic the real world?

The "scientific brief" had nothing to do with the real world. Or real world situations.  Or science for that matter. Unless your are a continuously coughing mannequin head standing close to other mannequins

Science. How low can it go?

FYI: Commodity defined.
Grain, precious metals, electricity, oil, beef, orange juice, and natural gas are traditional examples of commodities

A face mask is not a commodity. 

Though there has been a clear attempt to commodify face masks.

COMMIDIFY: to treat (something) inappropriately as if it can be acquired or marketed like other commodities

Face masks, are not commodities. Only a real idiot would write such rubbish.

I'm not sure why more people have clued in to the reality that masks are everywhere- worn by the masses and their are more positive Covid tests results then ever?



  1. Hi Penny,

    Maybe this site will also provide you with some more data
    ^covid related

    I think he is providing good material.

    1. thanks anonymous,
      I've bookmarked the site and am going to be reading through it. :)

  2. What I linked to on facebook:

    "We have provided the first clinical efficacy data of cloth masks, which suggest HCWs should not use cloth masks as protection against respiratory infection. Cloth masks resulted in significantly higher rates of infection than medical masks, and also performed worse than the control arm. The controls were HCWs who observed standard practice, which involved mask use in the majority, albeit with lower compliance than in the intervention arms. The control HCWs also used medical masks more often than cloth masks. When we analysed all mask-wearers including controls, the higher risk of cloth masks was seen for laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infection. "
    "It would appear that despite two decades of pandemic preparedness, there is considerable uncertainty as to the value of wearing masks. For instance, high rates of infection with cloth masks could be due to harms caused by cloth masks, or benefits of medical masks. The numerous systematic reviews that have been recently published all include the same evidence base so unsurprisingly broadly reach the same conclusions. 2 However, recent reviews using LOWER QUALITY EVIDENCE (my emphasis) found masks to be effective. Whilst also recommending robust randomised trials to inform the evidence for these interventions. 5
    Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.
    Conclusion: This systematic review found LIMITED (my emphasis) evidence that the use of masks might reduce the risk of viral respiratory infections. In the community setting, a possible reduced risk of influenza like illness was found among mask users. In health care workers, the results show no difference between N95 masks and surgical masks on the risk of confirmed influenza or other confirmed viral respiratory infections, although possible benefits from N95 masks were found for preventing influenzalike illness or other clinical respiratory infections. Surgical masks might be superior to cloth masks but data are limited to 1 trial.

    1. thanks for all the links peterm

      "recent reviews using LOWER QUALITY EVIDENCE(my emphasis)"

      coughing mannequin heads surely demonstrates lower quality evidence.

      I will check out the links-

  3. Hi Penny, M.R. here with a few opinions.

    From Rocco Galati's Twitter

    "An opinion piece today in the Vancouver Sun reveals that as of September 1st, 276 people have died of COVID-19 in B.C. and 1,202 people in B.C. have died of overdoses."

    The article Rocco is referring to states: "Urban mayors call on the newly elected B.C. government to immediately expand the availability of substance use and mental health treatment for both youth and adults."

    Yes, of course, THEIR solution to the increasing overdose problem (IMHO it's caused/exacerbated by the consequences of covid restrictions) is to open more treatment centres which would probably only "treat" by telephone anyway. MY solution would be to lift all covid restrictions and provide better life conditions for people with addiction problems, including one-on-one, face-to-face consultations -- NO MASKS.

    Also from Rocco Galati's Twitter

    In an article from Australia it is noted, "Schools must prepare for 50 per cent rise in students with disabilities". It goes on to say, "The confidential report, obtained under freedom of information laws, prompted mental health experts to call for a major investment in disability support staff, training and resources for schools, saying teachers are not equipped to respond."

    There seems to be a lack of interest in seeking the cause of all this expected increase in neurological problems (IMHO it's caused by over-vaccination, anxiety induced by covid restrictions and brain damage from masking) but by golly THEIR solution is the same as overdoses in BC ... more support staff for teachers. MY solution would be to stop over-vaccinating the children and lift all covid restrictions. It's particularly important to have NO MASKS because a child's developing brain needs oxygen and facial expressions are essential to developing a child's language and social skills.

  4. Well here is a warning of a youtuber to never trust or use for anything.

    1. Hi Thinking

      I've never seen that youtube channel. thanks for the heads up and Kudos to you for checking sources... You are one of a few. I'm a stickler for original source checking
      so a pile of not found pages would raise my suspicions as well.

      Much appreciated
