To wear or not to wear? Dutch government says ‘no’ to masks

Coronavirus in the Netherlands is being viewed from a scientific viewpoint by the Dutch government, and the science is showing that masks are ineffective so the government has opted against issuing a national mask-wearing order. 

According to Breitbart: “The Minister for Medical Care Tamara van Ark made the decision after a review by the country’s National Institute for Health (RIVM).”

Van Ark explained:

Because 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.

The Dutch government is worried that incorrect mask-wearing is more of a threat and that proper social distancing is more effective than masks. They are still encouraging people to stay home as much as possible and to maintain social distance when out.

There is certainly a lot of incorrect mask-wearing in the US. People are reusing masks, frequently touching them, wearing them under the nose, etc.

The required social distance is 5 feet in the Netherlands. Children are allowed to go to school and are not required to socially distance. The RIVM recommends frequent handwashing to keep COVID-19 under control.

The Netherlands, a country of over 17 million people, has around 54 thousand confirmed cases, and 6,147 deaths since March 7. The cases peaked in April with 1,335 new cases but dropped to less than half that number by early May. The current uptick in cases is around 200 new cases a day. 88% of COVID-19 deaths were persons over 70 years of age.

Meanwhile, in the US, the coronavirus is hyper-politicized and fearmongering abounds, but to really understand what the coronavirus is doing in the US, get away from the headlines, and read the statistics.

US COVID-19 statistics are 4.5 million cases and 153,000 deaths. More than 58 million coronavirus tests have been recorded as of July 29th. 

In the US, CDC director Robert Redfield has said that the infection rate, based on antibody testing, could be 10 to 24 times higher than the confirmed cases being reported. At 10 times greater, that would bring the US to 45 million infected, and a death rate of .0034%, and at 24 times greater cases would be at 108 million and .0014% death rate. That is a third of the US population. 

If the Redfield is right, the US is much farther along in the quest towards herd immunity than previously thought.

  1. Hospitals are admitting to changing Death Certificates to COVID-19 in order to be reimbursed from the federal government for lost income due to the moratorium on elective procedures. Florida is terribly over stated. A young man who died in a motorcycle accident was listed as COVID-19. So the numbers of deaths can be lowered by, most likely, 25%. The case numbers as well are hyperinflated as some labs have been reporting 100% positives which is statistically impossible. The whole thing has become too political in the US and no numbers can be believed. The CDC is a political (liberal) organization and, therefore, can’t be believed.

  2. The Dutch Government knows the TRUTH, that mask are WORTHLESS BULLSH*T and is only a CONTROL MUZZLE FOR LIBERAL DEMOCRAP COMMUNIST! A DEVICE TO STEAL AWAY AMERICAN’S RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS!! WAKE AMERICA DON’T BE CONTROLLED BY COMMUNIST TRAITORS! STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTSAND DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION FROM THESE SEDICIOUS TRAITORS! DON’T BE A SHEEP!

  3. A lot of the masks that I see being sold on the internet are made in China, are inefficient and can’t meet FDA standards. KN95 is one example. They are sold at inflated prices, don’t work right and their sales funnel a lot of money back to China, in effect rewarding them for creating a pandemic that has sickened and killed people around the world. Why do we reward them for that? If you really want to wear these useless contraptions at least make sure that they’re made in the USA.

  4. I don’t care for socalist nations, but at this point, I’d rather be living there with freedom not to wear a mask. They’re actually caring for their population rather than fear and hysteria mongering.

  5. Then today Dr. Fauci comes out and suggests we should be wearing goggles and face masks! What’s next, a fishbowl around our head? It’s getting completely ridiculous and out of hand. We don’t live in bubbles.

  6. Amen to all the above posts! Think for yourselves, people! This is all a control measure, don’t fall for it!

  7. Confusion abounds. Should we or should we not wear mask? Some say they help prevent the spread of the disease while others say they really do nothing. Just exactly who do we believe? Fact the mask has in some cases reduced the oxygen content in the blood others had no effect. Talk about confusion even our federal government can not make up their minds on the benefits of the mask. Just exactly who do we depend on to get the truth? Who knows? Only one thing is for certain. Unless we are caught up in the Rapture we are definitely not going to get out of this world alive.

  8. I call BS on the report. Countries that have high mask compliance, such as Singapore, have all but arrested the spread. This is because masks greatly reduce the travel distance of the spray that comes out of peopl’e mouths and noses.
