Corona Virus Controversy: Herd Immunity vs Lockdown
An interview with Chris Schaefer, Occupational Health and Safety consultant regarding masks.
Copy and paste into Google to watch. If you’re not informed with the truth about masks, you may be surprised to find they are not just useless but possibly dangerous to your health. This interview is an excellent source of information. As you may be aware, this perspective is not what mainstream medicine is publishing or what you will often find online. It's our choice who we wish to believe.

I made a few notes on this interview since FB, YouTube and other 'Big Tech' giants seem rather determined to keep us from hearing the truth by experts who know what they are talking about. Likely this video will be soon be taken down, so I have made some notes.
Here are some of the main points:

Here are some of the main points:
We don’t have masks designed for viruses such as COVID (or any other virus).
A million virus molecules can sit on the head of a pin, and so masks will not even begin to prevent penetration through masks, or even through the skin. They pass through us as though we’re not even there, like dust blowing through a chain-link fence.
Most masks worn by the public are N-95, the lowest level of respirators and not designed to protect us from anything than larger airborne substances
Not to be worn for long periods under any circumstances, and only then for very limited, specific purposes that have nothing to do with viruses.
Non-medical coverings provide no safety. None! They have no positive effect, only harmful. They are not respirators and have no filtering capability.
The first priority for health practitioners should be to the building of healthy immune systems. A match struck in a green forest don’t cause forest fires, only in old dry forests. Immunity is everything.
Viruses penetrate through the eyes, the nose, ears, and skin.
Non-medical masks are health hazards because:
- They deprive us of oxygen since they're not designed for breathing. Not rated for safety, no ventilation valves for breathing, thereby severely compromising immunity.
- Restrict airflow, which is a great danger to anyone with pre-existing health conditions(.)
- When worn for hours cause dampness and humidity further increasing the breeding of exhaled germs into more bacteria, compromising health, attracting fungus to the lungs, leading to pneumonia-like conditions.
- Children have a high demand for oxygen which masks severely restrict. And so, schools requiring masks have become a dangerous place for children. (There was not one COVID school child death of 2 million students last year in Canada… so the question is why are we doing this to our children.)
- Even hand sanitizers in public places such as schools are a health hazard. They become poisonous through skin absorption into the bloodstream.
- Dentists are now reporting mask-mouth, a condition that, after time, can destroy teeth.
Viruses can’t hurt us if we have a healthy immune) system. It seems doctors don’t wish to talk about this, but it’s the most important thing that health officials need to be telling the public, especially about the benefits of Vitamin D, Zinc, etc.
Please listen to the full interview because I’ve only noted the highlights
Further to this, Chris Schaeffer has written an open letter to the health authorities in Alberta. He has been working and testing masks safety for over 20 years. Here’s what they say about masks. This person has no agenda, just health and safety.
Open Letter to Physicians and the Public of Alberta
Dear Dr Hinshaw,
Re: Alberta Health recommendation that Albertans wear N95, surgical or non-medical masks in public to reduce the likelihood of transmitting or developing a condition from the coronavirus known as COVID-19
I have been teaching and conducting respirator fit testing for over 20 years and now currently for my company SafeCom Training Services Inc. My clients include many government departments, our military, healthcare providers with Alberta Health Services, educational institutions and private industry. I am a published author and a recognized authority on this subject.
Filter respirator masks, especially N95, surgical and non-medical masks, provide negligible COVID-19 protection for the following reasons:
1. Viruses in the fluid envelopes that surround them can be very small, so small in fact that you would need an electron microscope to see them. N95 masks filter 95% of particles with a diameter of 0.3 microns or larger. COVID-19 particles are .08 - .12 microns.
2. Viruses don’t just enter us through our mouth and nose, but can also enter through our eyes and even the pores of our skin. The only effective barrier one can wear to protect against virus exposure would be a fully encapsulated hazmat suit with cuffs by ankles taped to boots and cuffs by wrists taped to gloves, while receiving breathing air from a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
This barrier is standard gear to protect against a biohazard (viruses) and would have to be worn in a possible virus hazard environment 24/7 and you wouldn’t be able to remove any part of it even to have a sip of water, eat or use the washroom while in the virus environment. If you did, you would become exposed and would negate all the prior precautions you had taken.
3. Not only are N95, surgical and non-medical masks useless as protection from COVID-19, but in addition, they also create very real risks and possible serious threats to a wearer’s health for the following reasons:
A. Wearing these masks increases breathing resistance, making it more difficult to both inhale and exhale. According to our Alberta government regulations on respirator (mask) use, anyone that is required to wear a respirator mask should be screened to determine their ability to safely wear one.
Any covering of the mouth and nose increases breathing resistance, whether the mask is certified or not. Those individuals with pre-existing medical conditions of shortness of breath, lung disease, panic attacks, breathing difficulties, chest pain in exertion, cardiovascular disease, fainting spells, claustrophobia, chronic bronchitis, heart problems, asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures, high blood pressure and pacemakers need to be pre-screened by a medical professional to be approved to be able to safely wear one. Wearing these masks could cause a medical emergency for anyone with any of these conditions.
Pregnancy-related high blood pressure is possible. More research is necessary to determine the impact of wearing a mask for extended periods of time on pregnancy.
It is dangerous to recommend, much less mandate anyone with medical conditions to wear a mask without educating them about the risks involved in wearing them without having been pre-screened and approved by a medical professional first.
B. In order for any respirator mask to offer protection to a specific user, that user must be individually fitted with the right type, right size, if male – face must be clean-shaven (only short moustache allowed). Next, the user must be fit tested with that respirator by a trained professional to determine whether or not the respirator is providing the user with an air-tight seal – a requirement for any respirator mask.
C. N95 masks – N for not resistant to oil particles, 95 for the percentage of protection – the lowest level of all respirator masks
These masks even when properly sized and fitted will not protect against virus exposure, however they are capable of adequate protection from larger particles such as pet dander, pollen and sawdust.
Surgical masks (the paper ones that loop around the ears) – do not seal to the face and do not filter anything.
Nonmedical and/or homemade masks are dangerous because:
● Not engineered for the efficient yet protective requirements of easy inhalation and effective purging of exhaled carbon dioxide
● Could cause an oxygen deficiency for the user
● Could cause an accumulation of carbon dioxide for the user
● Shouldn’t be recommended under any circumstance
D. They increase body temperature and physical stress – could cause a high-temperature alert on a thermometer gun
E. They impede verbal communication
F. N95, surgical and nonmedical masks can create infections and possible disease all by themselves by causing exhaled warm, moist air to accumulate on the inside material of the mask, right in front of the user’s mouth and nose, which is the perfect environment for bacteria to form, grow and multiply. That is why N95 and other disposable masks were only designed to be short duration, specific task use and then immediately discarded.
So if masks are not effective in preventing illness, what is? How about the age-old tried, tested and proven method of protecting our health with a healthy diet, clean water, avoidance of processed, junk and fast foods, plenty of fresh air, sunshine, moderate exercise, adequate restful sleep and avoidance of stress?
We all have an immune system that can fight and overcome any COVID-19 threat if it is healthy and we nurture it.
Thank you for reading this open letter and letting me share my expertise. I ask that you share this with the public via media statement as we are all committed to promoting good health for all Albertans. If you or any of the public wish to contact me with a question or comment, I would love to hear from you. I can best be reached firstname.lastname@example.org.

Further to the above analysis, I have pasted in verbatim an excerpt regarding masks taken from an open letter by Belgium doctors to their government. To read the full open letter: Corona Virus Controversy, go to Herd Immunity vs Lockdown https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/corona-virus-shut-down-or-herd-immunity
Oral masks belong in contexts where contacts with proven at-risk groups or people with upper respiratory complaints take place, and in a medical context/hospital-retirement home setting. They reduce the risk of droplet infection by sneezing or coughing. Oral masks in healthy individuals are ineffective against the spread of viral infections. 29 30 31
Wearing a mask is not without side effects. 32 33 Oxygen deficiency (headache, nausea, fatigue, loss of concentration) occurs fairly quickly, an effect similar to altitude sickness. Every day we now see patients complaining of headaches, sinus problems, respiratory problems and hyperventilation due to wearing masks. In addition, the accumulated CO2 leads to a toxic acidification of the organism which affects our immunity. Some experts even warn of an increased transmission of the virus in case of inappropriate use of the mask.34
Our Labour Code (Codex 6) refers to a CO2 content (ventilation in workplaces) of 900 ppm, maximum 1200 ppm in special circumstances. After wearing a mask for one minute, this toxic limit is considerably exceeded to values that are three to four times higher than these maximum values. Anyone who wears a mask is therefore in an extreme poorly ventilated room. 35
Inappropriate use of masks without a comprehensive medical cardio-pulmonary test file is therefore not recommended by recognised safety specialists for workers. Hospitals have a sterile environment in their operating rooms where staff wear masks and there is precise regulation of humidity / temperature with appropriately monitored oxygen flow to compensate for this, thus meeting strict safety standards. 36

I found this on Facebook but don't know who came up with it. Please feel fee to copy and pass on.
None of you use a new mask after each use.
None of you wash your hands before you put on your mask.
None of you wash your hands when you take your mask off.
We see masks on the floor disregarded as litter.
Masks are thrown on the dash or hung on window mirrors so you grab and go.
You are lacking in oxygen.
You see frightened eyes. There is no face.
You wear to CONFORM.
You are breathing in your own germs.
You cough into those masks that you re-use.
You take your drink and plates and then take off your mask...when it’s been touched and handled and served by someone not wearing one
You walk into a restaurant wearing a mask for 5 seconds before you can take it off
You wear one to save everyone
You wear one for your protection
You are afraid of a bare face, a human face
On the box it says it doesnt protect you
Medical reports state you are harming yourself
You are turning on humans for not wearing one.
You are denying entry to humans not wearing one.
You are shouting at humans for not covering their face.
You are allowing children to be passed around unrecognisable
You are masking babies so you can’t even see if they have their spit or vomit or airways blocked - yet won’t lay them face down or have cot bumpers
If you don’t wear one, you’ll lose your job
If you don’t wear one, you can’t earn any money
If you don’t wear one, you’ll lose your business
“Oh I don’t believe in it all but I don’t want to cause trouble”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but I want others to feel safe”
“Oh I don’t believe in but what can you do”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but I only had to wear it for ten minutes”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but everyone’s wearing one so I will”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but hey, let just crack on as it is what it is”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but I don’t want to be bullied”
“Oh I don’t believe in it but I don’t want to be an outsider.”
“Oh I don’t believe in it all but I don’t want the funny looks”
“Oh I don’t believe in it all but I don’t want my business closed”
“Oh I don’t believe in it all but I’ve got to feed my children”
I could be here forever.....
If you know something isn’t right, TAKE IT OFF!
The more you comply the more you consent to further restrictions.
You don’t know your freedom is being taken away until it’s taken away!!!
Then it’ll be TOO LATE!
Can’t you see that by now?
SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT
This the first in a series of five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips, who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality, and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil, and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

(ATTEMPTED) INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES
The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers, including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com or directly at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture, and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"
“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher, can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting yet calming experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
