Skip to comments.Dutch Dr. Fauci Thinks Masks Won't Work. Here's Why
Posted on 08/07/2020 1:23:33 PM PDT by conservative98
The Netherlands government said it will not be implementing a national mandatory face mask rule. It says there is "insufficient scientific evidence" to support their use, according to the Outbreak Management Team at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).
Jaap van Dissel, Director of the RIVM Centre for Infectious Disease Control, who serves on the Outbreak Management Team, says they are aware of studies that appear to show masks slow the spread of COVID-19, but that at this time, they do not think they will help limit new infections in the Netherlands. According to Reuters, van Dissel said masks could cause people not to adhere to social distancing as well as they have been. This, coupled with people potentially wearing masks incorrectly, could increase disease transmission, he said.
The Netherlands' decision to not introduce a mandatory mask policy came after mayors in cities across the country said they should be put in place for some busy areas, following a slight uptick in cases in some regions. Since then, cities have been given autonomy to introduce their own mask orders. Following a meeting with mayors last week, Minister for Medical Care Tamara van Ark reaffirmed the national standpoint.
"From a medical point of view, there is no evidence of a medical effect of wearing face masks, so we decided not to impose a national obligation," Politico quotes her as saying.

Toss this one on the growing list of fairly obvious questions that the press will never ask Fauci.
Potentially? That's a knee-slapper! Only one in a hundred people are properly fitting a clean mask and refrain from touching it.
The other 99 are wearing the respiratory equivalent of a dirty diaper on their faces.
The hypocrisy is that they say there is no peer reviewed study that proves HCQ is effective (though there are) while they push masks (zero peer reviewed studies).
Headline is misleading
The article never mentions Dr Fraud.
Yeah, but does the “Dutch Dr. Fauci” have better control of his curveball?
If you can smell odors wearing a mask, it’s not working.
This, coupled with people potentially wearing masks incorrectly, could increase disease transmission, he said.
That is the case with 95% of the people you see with masks in the US
Someone send this to Trump already. Wearing masks is no more patriotic than trying to cut off your oxygen supply. Pure virtue signalling.
Funny thing is there is infinitely more evidence that HCQ/Zinc/AZT works than there is that masks work, yet smarmy gnome Fauci and his fake news enablers keep pushing the stupid masks 24/7 even as they trash the highly effective HCQ nonstop.
Jaap van Dissel, Director of the RIVM Centre for Infectious Disease Control,
Partly on his advice, measures were taken by the Rutte III cabinet for the public health to prevent the spread of this virus disease, including the intelligent lockdown.
Sounds a lot more intelligent than our Dr. Fauci.
"More than three months into the outbreak here, the Netherlands hasnt seen a single day of the strict lockdowns common elsewhere."
Hey, that's what our "news" media says about HCQ!!
Why all the Mask wearing frenzy now ?
She is a she.
And she can probably play soccer very well thank you.
Previous comment withdrawn.
I’ll bet by now you have realized your error.
Probably half the people I see who are masked are not wearing it “properly”.
There was line in heaven for brains... apparently you got out when you thought the angels sung train.
