      There seems to be a consensus that face coverings don’t protect the wearer. If they don’t protect the wearer then how do they protect others? Assuming that these are simple masks ie. not N95 etc., then they are made from a basic material that would work the same in both directions.

      So they are saying that they magically stop high pressure air from leaving the mask (breathing and sneezing) but cannot stop low pressure air from entering it. This makes very little sense to me unless you consider the fact that they leak really badly. When I wear a mask, most of the air comes out the sides, which makes then pretty pointless.

      Having said that, I think this could reduce the spread by a small amount… If you’re having a conversation with somebody and looking at them then it will deflect the air away from the person you’re talking to. This would also make sense for doctors etc. The big problem I have with this is that it doesn’t make sense in other environments. When I go to the supermarket I have people all around me so the air is now being diverted to people around me and if I sneeze etc., I won’t be expecting it to come out of the sides. This also has a similar problem on public transport where people sit next to each other.

      Does anybody know how masks are supposed to be effective?

      They aren’t unfortunately, as its very hard to make a filter at such small levels catch all the particles, often it can only choose between 2 types of particles, large medium and small. N95 masks get around this by making the material charged, so they catch large and small particles, and the static charge catches the medium, and that’s providing you have a good seal. so these masks which don’t use that technology just don’t work for the purposes of viruses, they work for certain bacteria, which is how this all started.
      to make it worse the simple masks become a casino for other bacteria, mould and viruses most of which are harmless but some defiantly aren’t.

      Masks are part of the narrative. Part of the “story” that we are in a “global pandemic”. It’s part of the street theatre concocted by the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B), who are the behavioural psychologists feeding into SAGE to advise on how to manipulate the population.
      SPI-B warned in March last year that ministers needed to increase “the perceived level of personal threat” from Covid-19 because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened”. Masks was one of the ideas they came up with as it was a external sign we were all at risk from others.
      If you cast your mind back to early last year… that’s why the “experts” original advice was “No need for the general public to wear masks.” and turned into “Masks are mandatory and must be worn by everyone!” in just a couple of weeks. The science didn’t change in just a few days. The message changed to support the narrative they wanted everyone to believe.
      Since then, several SPI-B psychologists have come out and branded their work in the use of fear to control people’s behaviour during the Covid pandemic as “unethical” and “totalitarian”. So, they themselves have said it.
