FOIA request reveals: the mask policy in Israel is not based on evidence that they actually work
Just like in the US, the mask policy in Israel is also not based on scientific evidence. Science is dead. Expert opinion dictates policy. Scientific evidence is no longer needed.
I received this document responding to a FOIA (equivalent) request to Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH).
Here’s a snippet:
Basically, to summarize the entire response, there is no evidence masking works and we don’t know the harms, but we decided to do it anyway. OK?
It goes downhill from there.
Read the full response here. Highlights are those of the requestor.
For more info on the lack of any evidence on masks, see: Do masks work?
Mask keep people from picking their own noses -which is a known infection route - self-inoculation with pathogens when they stick their own dirty fingers in their own noses.
This is why sometimes it appears "masks work", but this needs to be tested against people who do not stick their fingers in their own noses. That would be science; not junk science.
So we remain stuck in this visual command and control theater segregating the docile from the potentially hostile. That is also why "masks work" - they readily identify the authoritarian compliant.
I’m responding to this again today since the crazy Gov. of Ca. seems to have sold everyone out. He knows masks don’t work because he only wears one for show but has implemented a new mandate as of the 15th for one month.
