Norway study says masking increases COVID risk

It seems that every day a new disclosure is admitted or revealed or published in some fashion that destroys the narrative put forth by "official" channels in the government and media in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is true in the area of facemasks and "face coverings" which is such a laughable phrase it makes my head hurt.

A study funded by the Norwegian Institute for Public Health showed that mask use increased the risk of infection rather than decrease risk.

Researchers analyzed data collected from 3,209 people who were studied across a 17-day period.

People who "sometimes" or "almost always" wore a mask had a 33 and 40 percent, respectively, higher incidence of COVID-19 infection.

Among people who "never" wore masks, 8.6 percent tested positive for COVID-19.

Among people who "almost never" wore masks, 15.1 percent were stricken by the bug.

After adjusting the study for baseline health risks among the study group, the risk of getting sick while masking was lower, but the data still showed an increase risk by use of a mask.

After adjusting for jab status with a COVID drug, people who "sometimes" or "often" wore masks had a 33 percent greater chance of getting the bug when compared to those who "never" or "almost never" wore a mask. This increased to an increased risk of 40 percent for those who "always" or "almost always" wore a mask.

Researchers in the study noted that there was one limitation to the data: those who always or almost always wore masks may have not taken quite as good care of sticking to other precautions due to the belief that masks protected them from getting sick.
