1/ US: New mask study finds no difference between mandate and non-mandate states.
2/ This study looked at mask mandate v non-mandate states to ascertain if there was any difference in transmission rates. Conclusion:
3/ “Mask mandates and use are not associated with slower state-level COVID-19 spread during COVID-19 growth surges.”
4/ “…These findings suggest that statewide mandates and enhanced mask use did not detectably slow COVID-19 spread.”
“Our findings do not support the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 transmission rates decrease with greater public mask use.”
5/ The study has useful links to the plethora of pre-covid randomised control trials, none of which showed any benefits of community mask wearing against any respiratory virus.
6/ This was basis on which no public health body, including the WHO and CDC, recommended general masking in response to any respiratory virus. For the simple reason that the scientific consensus was that masks didn’t work....
7/ ....Until they followed China and all that science was thrown out of the window overnight.
In fact, the science hasn’t changed.

India update: How bad is the ‘Indian Variant?’
Covid deaths in India have peaked at one sixth of the level of deaths per million in the UK, and cases have been dropping for some time.
2/ It has been claimed that inadequate testing resulted in under-reporting, but that can be true in many countries. India is still only ranked 79th in the world by deaths per million according to Statista.
3/Furthermore, 77% of the tests in India were negative. Why test so many people that didn’t have Covid, if there were inadequate tests to test those who died of it?

The Narrative says that it is, and furthermore lots of breakthrough ‘cases’ among vaccinated individuals would be inconvenient. So the CDC has quietly stopped monitoring ‘cases’ unless they result in hospitalisation or death. But only in vaccinated individuals:
“As of May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only hospitalized or fatal cases due to any cause.”
So being asymptomatic – or having symptoms that don’t require hospitalisation – will no longer count as a “Covid case” but only if you’ve been vaccinated.

All gene therapy vaccines direct the body to make the spike protein. Zhang et al in [a scientific paper published in the Journal of Hematology & Oncology] in September 2020
showed that if you infuse spike protein into mice that have humanized ACE-2 receptors on blood platelets that you also get disseminated thrombosis.
Spike protein incubated with human blood in vitro also caused blood clot development which was resistant to fibrinolysis. [Fibrinolysis is the body’s process of breaking down blood clots].
