New Study Suggests Mask Mandates Were Associated With Increased Covid Death Rate

Now that the mass hysteria from the CDC regarding Covid-19 has died down, the rest of the medical community now has a chance to finally speak up and weigh in on whether they agreed or not with the so-called “industry experts”.

There’s been much debate regarding mask mandates and how they may have affected our health throughout the pandemic. At first, they were not required, then they were required, then 2 masks, then no masks again, before settling at N95 masks – which by the way admitted on the box that they did not protect against Covid-19 – the whole thing was an absolutely dumpster fire.

But not only did practically every medical community on planet earth warn that masks did absolutely nothing to protect against Covid-19, but studies have now surfaced suggesting they may have in fact contributed to the deaths amongst those who contracted Covid-19.

A shocking new medical journal report comparing Covid-19 fatality rates across Kansas counties during the height of the pandemic suggested that mask mandates could be associated with higher death rates from the virus.

From The National Pulse:

The observational study – “The Foegen Effect: A Mechanism by Which Facemasks Contribute to the COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate” – was published in Medicine in February 2022, authored by German doctor Zacharias Fögen.

The paper analyzed “whether mandatory mask use influenced the case fatality rate in Kansas” during the time period of August 1st, 2020 to October 15th. Kansas was used for comparison because the state allowed each of its 105 counties to decide whether or not to implement mask mandates, with 81 counties deciding against the measure.

“The most important finding from this study is that contrary to the accepted thought that fewer people are dying because infection rates are reduced by masks, this was not the case,” summarized the paper.

“Results from this study strongly suggest that mask mandates actually caused about 1.5 times the number of deaths or ~50% more deaths compared to no mask mandates.”

As originally reported by TownHall.com, while several recent reports, including this University of Louisville study, have shown mask mandates to have had no discernable effect on Covid-19 case rates through the pandemic, the possibility that widespread and prolonged mask usage could actually have negative consequences has largely been ignored by researchers until recently. 

In April, a peer-reviewed study comparing mask usage across Europe during the pandemic found no negative correlations between mask usage and Covid-19 cases and deaths and even admitted to having found a “moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe” which “suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences.”
