Why Masks Are Bad for Children

There is no conclusive evidence that masks reduce Covid transmission in children. Yet the politicized CDC shrieks that children should wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Consequently, mask mandates are imposed throughout the country, probably on the assumption that even if the masks don’t do much good, they don’t do much harm either. This assumption is false, as explained in the Wall Street Journal:

Those who have myopia can have difficulty seeing because the mask fogs their glasses. … Masks can cause severe acne and other skin problems. The discomfort of a mask distracts some children from learning. By increasing airway resistance during exhalation, masks can lead to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. And masks can be vectors for pathogens if they become moist or are used for too long.

Like everyone else, kids have a hard time breathing with a mask on. They compensate by breathing through their mouths, which can alter facial development — and not for the better.

Then there is the psychological damage:

Facial expressions are integral to human connection, particularly for young children, who are only learning how to signal fear, confusion and happiness. Covering a child’s face mutes these nonverbal forms of communication and can result in robotic and emotionless interactions, anxiety and depression. Seeing people speak is a building block of phonetic development. It is especially important for children with disabilities such as hearing impairment.

With masking insanity now well into its second year, long-term effects could be severe in some kids.

We have known all along that Covid is not a significant threat to children:

The CDC reports that for the week of July 31 the rate of hospitalization with Covid for children 5 to 17 was 0.5 per million, which would amount to roughly 25 patients. The CDC acknowledges that not all of these children were in the hospital for Covid: Viral testing at admission is routine, even for patients who have no Covid symptoms. Children who do develop Covid symptoms are at minimal risk of “long Covid,” according to a Lancet study published Aug. 3: “Almost all children had symptom resolution by 8 weeks, providing reassurance about long-term outcomes.”

As for kids transmitting Covid to adults, as teachers’ unions fret,

A North Carolina study conducted before vaccines were available found not a single case of student-to-teacher transmission when 90,000 students were in school.

Most kids are not wearing N95 masks anyway, but cloth masks that serve only as symbols. They may as well try to ward off Covid by wearing amulets. But then, amulets would not work as a symbol of submission to progressive authorities.
