The Science is Conclusive: Masks and Respirators do NOT Prevent Transmission of Viruses
Dr. Denis G Rancourt, PhD researchgate.net Mon, 20 Apr 2020 20:47 UTC
Comment: The following review of the scientific literature on wearing surgical and other facemasks as a means of preventing the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and thus preventing contraction of ‘Covid-19’ was published a month ago. And absent some miraculous suspension of decades of hard science on the transmission of viruses, it’s settled…
Masks and respirators do not work. There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.
Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective-dose is smaller than one aerosol particle.
The present paper about masks illustrates the degree to which governments, the mainstream media, and institutional propagandists can decide to operate in a science vacuum, or select only incomplete science that serves their interests. Such recklessness is also certainly the case with the current global lockdown of over 1 billion people, an unprecedented experiment in medical and political history.
Review of the Medical Literature
Here are key anchor points to the extensive scientific literature that establishes that wearing surgical masks and respirators (e.g., “N95”) does not reduce the risk of contracting a verified illness:
Jacobs, J. L. et al. (2009) “Use of surgical face masks to reduce the incidence of the common cold among health care workers in Japan: A randomized controlled trial”, American Journal of Infection Control, Volume 37, Issue 5, 417 – 419.
Mufti Ebrahim Desai, in a fatwa, says that it is permissible to wear a covid mask. He says that the prohibition in the Hadith falls away when the mask is worn because of a need. The need is the danger of being infected with the covid disease. He quoted from several kitaabs of the Hanafi Fuqaha. One such quotation is:
“Covering one’s mouth in Salah is prohibited due to the Hadith of Abu Dawud and others. It will only be permissible to cover at the time of need.” (Emphasis not mine)
The mufti basis the permissibility on the need “to save oneself from being infected”. Is this fatwa valid?
This is one more of the zigzag fatwas for which the wayward mufti has a penchant. There is no valid Shar’i substance in his zigzag fatwa which is designed for bootlicking the atheists and the government. This miserable mufti is a sell-out. He has become a traitor to the Deen. He mis-manipulates the texts of the Shariah for sinister agendas. The current shaitaani objective is to accord Shar’i acceptability to the baatil covid shaitaaniyat dinned into his ears by anti-Islam forces.
The Hadith and the texts of the Fuqaha are abundantly clear. With clarity the prohibition is stated. The exception is an exigency of Dhuroorat (real need), not a hallucinated need, and not a need according to the kufr theories of the atheists.
No one denies the principle of Dhuroorat. But every imaginary ‘need’ does not come within the Shariah’s concept of Dhuroorat. If there is genuine Dhuroorat, Salaat may be performed wearing only a female’s panties or even stark naked. When there is legitimate Dhuroorat in the meaning of the Shariah’s concept, then liquor and pork may also be consumed, and for such consumption there is no need for the rubbish ‘halaal’ certificates of the Carrion & Pork cartel.
The conjectured or imagined ‘need’ on which the zigzagger basis his corrupt fatwa is underlined by the kufr contagion belief which is in blatant denial of the explicit La Adwaa proclamation of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). This miserable miscreant mufti shamelessly peddles the idea of the atheist in stark denial of the Law stated by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
In view of the Shariah’s explicit negation of the kufr idea of contagion, there is absolutely no need to don the niqaab of Iblees in Salaat. Thus, the original Mas’alah remains in its place. The exception proffered by the miscreant has no basis. It is spurious and baatil, hence donning the niqaab of Iblees in Salaat is Haraam. The fear of infection is unfounded and kufr.
Furthermore, wearing the niqaab of Iblees in the current context of the circumstances is not only Makrooh, it is kufr, and it invalidates Salaat. Donning the Ibleesi niqaab is accompanied by the kufr belief of contagion. It is the kufr idea of the atheists which this miserable mufti is promoting.
The function of a true Mufti is to strengthen the bond with Allah Ta’ala, not to widen the existing chasm between the bandah and Allah Ta’ala. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Seek a fatwa from your heart.” The sincere searcher of the Truth should, with an unbiased mind, scrutinize the fatwa of this wayward mufti.
Who and what is this mufti promoting with his zigzag fatwa? The fatwa of the heart will adequately reply this question. Everyone can understand that the fatwa of permissibility for donning the niqaab of Iblees is designed to promote the theory of the atheists and to curry favour with the government. There is no Deeni objective for this confounded baatil fatwa.
He completely side steps the original purport of Rasulullah’s prohibition, and clings on to the straw of the exception on the fallacious basis of imaginary dhuroorat to peddle the wares of Bill Gates and his ilk.
The fatwa of Deoband is just as putrid as the fatwa of mufti Ebrahim Desai. Deoband is no longer a reliable institution. We scrutinize the fatwas emanating from today’s Darul Ifta if Deoband. The Janaazah of Ilm has long ago departed from Darul Uloom Deoband. Now there remains only a skeleton. Their fatwa also emphasizes on the exception instead of the prohibition stated with clarity by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Both fatwas are bunkum. It is haraam to don the niqaab of Iblees. Salaat with the evil niqaab on, due to the kufr belief underlying it, is not valid.
When a molvi’s brains are convoluted by shaitaan, then in the words of the Qur’aan Majeed, he blunders with shaitaani intoxication. In this regard, the Qur’aan Majeed states:
“Those who devour riba do not stand except as one who has been afflicted by the touch of shaitaan stands. That is because they say that trade is like riba whilst Allah has made halaal trade and made haraam riba.”
Although the specific circumstance for the revelation of this Aayat is the prohibition of riba, it has a general application. Those who halaalize any of Allah’s prohibitions come within the scope of this Qur’aanic stricture.
The niqaab of Iblees, i.e. the covid mask designed, advised and forced by the atheists and the enemies of Allah Ta’ala, is haraam. Even a face covering not designed by the kuffaar and not accompanied by the kufr contagious belief, and not donned to bootlick the kuffaar, is haraam to wear during Salaat. That is, a man may not cover his face with any cloth or garment whilst performing Salaat. There is specific Nass on this prohibition.
The UK molvi, most ludicrously, stupidly and satanically elevates the haraam niqaab of Iblees to the stature of Sunnah. He disgorges the follow kufr effluvium:
“The blessed Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was that whenever he would wear something (clothes, shoes etc) he would start from the right. And when he would remove something he would remove the left side ﬁrst.
For example when he sallallahu alayhi wasallam would wear footwear he would wear the right ﬁrst and then the left. And when removing he would remove the left ﬁrst and then the right.
Yesterday our respected Shaykh, Mawlana Muhammad Saleem Dhorat Saheb haﬁzahullah mentioned nowadays we are constantly a wearing the face mask. When wearing the mask we should tie the rightstrap ﬁrst (behind the ear) and then the left. And when removing the mask we should remove the left strap ﬁrst thereafter the right strap and whilst doing this a person should make the intention of acting upon the blessed sunnah. We are wearing and removing the mask multiple times in a day. Like this imagine how much reward we can reap in one day.”
(End of the molvi’s kufr rubbish)
“Like this”, those who don the niqaab of Iblees should imagine how much Wrath and La’nat of Allah Ta’ala settle on them in one day. The molvi has gone haywire with his kufr. Shaitaan has indeed “driven him to madness with his touch” as is mentioned in the aforementioned Qur’aanic Aayat. Satanism has blinded the eyes of his heart. He has sunk deep into the gutter of kufr by promoting the niqaab of Iblees and by elevating it to the status of Sunnah.
It is prohibited (Makrooh Tahrimi) to cover the face during Salaat because of the Hadith of Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu anhu): ‘Verily Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) forbade that the musalli covers his face…….
He prohibited talath-thum in Salaat. (Talath-thum: i.e. covering the face with a veil), and in it tashabbuh (emulation) of the Majoos during their worshipping the fire.”
The mushrik Majoos (Fire-Worshippers) don the niqaab of Iblees when they worship the fire. Today molvis are promoting this face-covering of the devil and even elevating it to the status of the Sunnah during Salaat. The molvi’s rubbish kufr advice is in stark conflict and denial of the prohibition proclaimed by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
“Imaam Maalik (Rahmatullah alayh) narrates from Abdur Rahmaan Bin Al-Mujeer that he saw Saalim Bin Abdullah who would forcefully rip off the cloth (the veil/face-covering) from the face of a person performing Salaat.”
“Imaam Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullah alayh) narrated that Ibraahim (Nakh’i) regarded as Makrooh that a man covers his face in Salaat, and he (also) regarded as Makrooh that a woman performs Salaat with a face covered with niqaab.”
“Ibraaheem Nakh’i said: It is Makrroh that he (the musalli) covers his face. Imaam Muhammad said: ‘This is our view. We also regard as Makrooh that he covers his nose. And this is the view of Abu Hanifah (Rahmatullah alayh).
The molvi’s advice is clearly kufr. He has implied by his satanic advice his rejection of the prohibition stated by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). This rejection is tantamount to kufr.
“Salaam on those who follow the huda of Allah”
The advice given by this molvi has been satanically calculated to convey the absolutely baatil idea of the niqaab of Iblees being permissible, hence the aadaab pertaining to other permissible acts should be extended to this haraam act as well. This stupid haraam advice is similar to saying that when eating pork or carrion one should commence with Bismillaah and eat with the right hand. It is similar to advising men to bestow the Masnoon Aadaab of dressing even if they clothe themselves with female garments or the type of garments which are the styles of immoral fussaaq and fujjaar. The elevation of a kufr act to the level of Sunnah is itself kufr.
Dr. M. Griesz-Brisson, a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist says about the Niqaabs of Iblees:
“OXYGEN DEPRIVATION IS DANGEROUS FOR EVERY SINGLE BRAIN. IT MUST BE THE FREE DECISION OF EVERY HUMAN BEING WHETHER THEY WANT TO WEAR A MASK THAT IS ABSOLUTELY INEFFECTIVE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM A VIRUS.”
“TO DEPRIVE A CHILD’S OR AN ADOLESCENT’S BRAIN FROM OXYGEN, OR TO RESTRICT IT IN ANY WAY, IS NOT ONLY DANGEROUS TO THEIR HEALTH, IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRIMINAL.”
Covid-19 masks are a crime against Humanity and child abuse
is a transcript of the highlights (by Henna Maria) from Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson’s recent extremely pressing video message, that was translated on-air from German into English by Claudia Stauber. Dr. Margarite Griesz-Brisson MD, PhD is a Consultant Neurologist and Neurophysiologist with a PhD in Pharmacology, with special interest in neurotoxicology, environmental medicine, neuroregeneration and neuroplasticity. This is what she has to say about masks and their effects on our brains:
“The rebreathing of our exhaled air will without a doubt create oxygen deficiency and a flooding of carbon dioxide. We know that the human brain is very sensitive to oxygen depravation. There are nerve cells for example in the hippocampus, that can’t be longer than 3 minutes without oxygen – they cannot survive. The acute warning symptoms are headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, issues in concentration, slowing down of the reaction time – reactions of the cognitive system.
However, when you have chronic oxygen depravation, all of those symptoms disappear, because you get used to it. But your efficiency will remain impaired and the undersupply of oxygen in your brain continues to progress.
We know that neurodegenerative diseases take years to decades to develop. If today you forget your phone number, the breakdown in your brain would have already started 20 or 30 years ago.
While you’re thinking, that you have gotten used to wearing your mask and rebreathing your own exhaled air, the degenerative processes in your brain are getting amplified as your oxygen deprivation continues.
The second problem is that the nerve cells in your brain are unable to divide themselves normally. So in case our governments will generously allow as to get rid of the masks and go back to breathing oxygen freely again in a few months, the lost nerve cells will no longer be regenerated. What is gone is gone.
[..]I do not wear a mask, I need my brain to think. I want to have a clear head when I deal with my patients, and not be in a carbon dioxide induced anaesthesia.
[..]There is no unfounded medical exemption from face masks because oxygen deprivation is dangerous for every single brain. It must be the free decision of every human being whether they want to wear a mask that is absolutely ineffective to protect themselves from a virus.
For children and adolescents, masks are an absolute no-no. Children and adolescents have an extremely active and adaptive immune system and they need a constant interaction with the microbiome of the Earth. Their brain is also incredibly active, as it is has so much to learn. The child’s brain, or the youth’s brain is thirsting for oxygen. The more metabolically active the organ is, the more oxygen it requires. In children and adolescents every organ is metabolically active.
To deprive a child’s or an adolescent’s brain from oxygen, or to restrict it in any way, is not only dangerous to their health, it is absolutely criminal. Oxygen deficiency inhibits the development of the brain, and the damage that has taken place as a result CANNOT be reversed.
Photo – Brain Damage from Lack of Oxygen The child needs the brain to learn, and the brain needs oxygen to function. We don’t need a clinical study for that. This is simple, indisputable physiology. Conscious and purposely induced oxygen deficiency is an absolutely deliberate health hazard, and an absolute medical contraindication.
An absolute medical contraindication in medicine means that this drug, this therapy, this method or measure should not be used – is not allowed to be used. To coerce an entire population to use an absolute medical contraindication by force, there must be definite and serious reasons for this, and the reasons must be presented to competent interdisciplinary and independent bodies to be verified and authorised.
When in ten years, dementia is going to increase exponentially, and the younger generations couldn’t reach their god-given potential, it won’t help to say “we didn’t need the masks”.
[..]How can a veterinarian, a software distributer, a business man, an electrical car manufacturer and a physicist decided on matters regarding the health of the entire population? Please dear colleagues, we all have to wake up.
I know how damaging oxygen depravation is for the brain, cardiologist knows it for the heart, the pulmonologist knows it for the lungs. Oxygen deprivation damages every single organ.
Where are our health departments, our health insurance, our medical associations? It would have been their duty to be vehemently against the lockdown and to stop it and stop it from the very beginning.
Why do the medical boards give punishments to doctors who give people exemptions? Does the person or the doctor seriously have to prove that oxygen depravation harms people? What kind of medicine are our doctors and medical associations representing?
Who is responsible for this crime? The ones who want to enforce it? The ones who let it happen and play along, or the ones who don’t prevent it?[..]It’s not about masks, it’s not about viruses, it’s certainly not about your health. It is about much much more. I am not participating. I am not afraid. [..]You can notice, they are already taking our air to breathe.
The imperative of the hour is personal responsibility.
We are responsible for what we think, not the media. We are responsible for what we do, not our superiors. We are responsible for our health, not the World Health Organisation. And we are responsible for what happens in our country, not the government.”
