What The Netherlands And Sweden Are Doing About Mask Mandates Is Sure To Trigger The Left

(Right Country) – While much of the Western world is imposing questionably legal mask mandates on their citizens amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, two Northern European countries are going against the grain.

What is the socialist left going to do about two of their favorite “socialist” countries challenging one of their favorite talking points for 2020?

The Netherlands, Summit News reports, has decided not to mandate the masks in public on the basis that there is no scientific evidence of their efficacy in preventing the spread of the novel virus.

“From a medical perspective there is no proven effectiveness of masks, the Cabinet has decided that there will be no national obligation for wearing non-medical masks” announced Netherlands Minister for Medical Care Tamara van Ark.

The nation’s National Institute for Health (RIVM) said it was aware that studies in other countries claim to demonstrate that masks can stop the spread of the Chinese virus, but is not heeding said studies.

RIVM chief Jaap van Dissel even warned that masks could actually increase risk of spreading the coronavirus as wearing them incorrectly could give a “false sense of security” as wearers would be less inclined to social distance.

“So we think that if you’re going to use masks (in a public setting) … then you must give good training for it,” he said.

Summit News notes that:

Within the past week in the Netherlands, around 1400 new COVID-19 cases were reported, which equates to 342 more than the week before.

The case appears to be similar in Sweden, where senior epidemiologist Anders Tegnell flat-out declared that there is “no point” in wearing masks in public.

“We see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport,” Tegnell said.

Summit News notes:

Sweden, which has not even instituted a lock down at any time, appears to be seeing a downward trend in cases.

At the beginning of this week, Sweden announced just 398 new cases, down from 767 the week before and 2,530 one month ago.

“The curves go down, and the curves over the seriously ill begin to be very close to zero. As a whole, it is very positive,” Tegnell also said.

  1. Wearing a mask to keep out the virus, is like having a screen with 6 inch holes and trying to keep a gnat, from getting into your house.
    A virus is microscopic. Much smaller than the weave in a mask.

    • You are very right. The coronavirus molecule is 1/10th of a micron in size and the “square” within a weave of a cotton mask is at least 6 microns wide and 6 microns tall meaning at least 36,000 coronavirus molecules can fit through each “square weave” of the mask. They are absolutely no good for protection.

      As to how they count new coronavirus cases……if someone is tested and tests positive (keeping in mind that the test has been proven to test 50% false positive results). The first time they are tested it is listed as a new coronavirus case…..if the same person is re-tested again, it is counted as another NEW coronavirus case, same with the third and fourth time. Then, when they take the anti-body test to prove they have built up anti-bodies against the coronavirus, guess what, it counts as a NEW coronavirus case! So in a lot of cases, one person having the coronavirus counts as five new cases.
      As far as coronavirus deaths……many car accidents are counted as coronavirus deaths so that states can get their money per person from the federal government. Pretty much, everybody that dies in a lot of states is tagged as a covid death. Someone needs to do something about this because the Democrats have gotten to the department of health who tallies all of these cases and deaths and then the whole country gets locked down again. It’s about control and it needs to stop.

    • You should not be using that profanity on threads such as this. If you do not like what is reported, then just click off the page, dork!

    • wow, derogatories (name calling). Is that all you got ? That doesn’t convince me. Sorry. The fact that you are mad, and fighting your best with epiteths really is unconvincing.

  2. All COVID positive persons should be allowed to choose to have hydroxychloroquine on an outpatient basis. Period. So many lives would have been saved if this were done IMMEDIATELY, not waiting till we are on deaths doorway.

  3. There is very conflicting data on mask use to prevent new cases, with the possible exception that masks might help reduce the spread to others, if you already have the disease.

    Starting treatment very early is the key to preventing Cytokine storms, which is overwhelmingly the cause of death for people with comorbidities.

    There is obviously a problem with waiting to start treatment, because every day the viral count increases if there is not enough vitamin D to moderate your immune system.

    For older people with comorbidities, there is an increase of risk due to Cytokine storm. This same risk is highly unusual for young, healthy patients.

    For that reason, there is great risk to AWAIT the 3-6 days for a positive test for starting antibiotics, zinc and a zinc ionophore.

    In a few years, we will be reading about how MEDIA deliberately did not disclose the need for adequate levels of Vitamin D, which could have prevented this catastrophe.

    This was all done deliberately to make sure Donald Trump was not re-elected.

    This is a crime against humanity engineered by Democrats.
