Where is the evidence for mandatory mask wearing and the Aberdeen Lockdown

Public Health Scotland did not have the information requested.

Bartholomeus Lakeman

Dear Public Health Scotland,

1) As the diameter of SARS-VoC-2 (covid19) is between 0.06 microns and 0.14 microns; which is 1% - 5% of that of bacteria (average 0.5 microns to 2.0 microns: TB) against which medical masks are effective: Then where is the proof that a mask stops the spreading of said virus?
2) Lab testing has shown that 3M surgical masks can block up to 75% of particles that measure between 0.02 and 1 micron (small pox, Ebola) and that Cloth masks block between 30% and 60% of respiratory droplets, and that the virus is not restricted to staying within respiratory droplets and can be aerosolized to particles far smaller, which cannot be caught by any mask: Then where is the proof that a mask stops the spreading of said virus?
3) Researcher found that those who wore cloth masks had a higher rate of flu-like illness as compared to those who used medical masks; as the moisture retention in a cloth mask, along with reuse and poor filtration causes a higher rates of infection (see a research on 1,607 participants at 14 secondary- and tertiary-level hospitals in Hanoi, Vietnam): Then how is it possible that a mask stops said virus?
4) Authors of a study (14 randomized controlled trials were collected for 77 consecutive days during cold season: amongst workers in a tertiary care hospital where they had greater-than-passing interactions with patients) found that those who wore a masks at work had significantly more headaches and no evidence the masks had a benefit in protecting the participants against getting a cold: Then how is it possible that a mask stops said virus?
5) Chinese researchers have shown that that passing contacts do not spread covid19 virus, and that asymptomatic people do not spread covid19 virus, and that only severe ill patients do spread covid19: Then where is the scientific proof for that wearing a mask reduces the spread of the covic19 virus?

6) Where is the conclusive evidence, scientific proof, or peer reviewed article that proofs that case numbers (detected by the RT PCR test) are the same as infected people?
7) The total all cause death for Jan. - Aug. 2020 is about the same as that of 2019; and only 7 – 6% of the total covid19 death had no other fatal comorbidity (see NOS, and the CDC recently declared that in the USA the total covid19 death is 9,3000 which 6% of what was originaly claimed); and since May hardly anyone has died with covid19: Then where is the conclusive evidence that proofs that a positive RT PCR test confirms to be infected by Covid19 virus?
8) The RT PCR test detects genomic sequences, and it can get positive due to a variety of RNA particles from different sources; including SARS-CoV 1 & 2, Influenza A & B, vaccination and antibodies to said infections, toxics, and Chromosome 8 (which is in many individuals instable): Then to what percentage does a positive RT-PCR test confirms a covid19 infection?
9) Where is the proof of that the increment of covid19 case numbers is not caused by the increment of testing and contact trace & track App?
10) Why is that when one has a negative PCR test: one still has to wear a mask?
11) Where is the proof of that the increment of case numbers is not caused by the stress due to the Lockdown measurements, e.g. social distancing, mask wearing, loss of earning, and social alienation?
12) In case you do not have said requested scientific proofs: then what is your legitimate excuse for the Lockdown in Aberdeen (which is causing fear, an economic and social decline, and more covid19 cases)?

13) Where is the proof of that the impositions of said case numbers increment (by testing and contact trace & track App), a face mask, Lockdown, and fear, that these are not imposed to create a collective obedience to the regimes (vaccination, ID pass, and surveillance) created on behalf of the big corporations?
See Biderman’s chart of Coercion: Isolation (quarantine, distancing, Isolation from loved ones, solitary confinement, Travel restriction), Monopolization of perception (24-7 news cycle, censorship on dissenting voices, soft puppet armies on internet, barren environments (closed bars, restaurants, gyms), Enforcing Trivial Demands, Occasional Indulge, Degradation (those who choose personal freedom called covidiots, psychopath, anarchist), Induced Debility, Threats (no child schooling, prolonged quarantine, closing business, forced vaccination), Demonstrating an Omnipotence/Omniscience (world shutdown, authority of science/‘the science is set’).
14) Which section and article of the law provides that you (the competent authority) can order that Mask wearing is the necessary protective measures to prevent the spread of Covid19?
15) Does this particular section and article of the law (‘Infection Protection Act’) set certain quality (scientific) standards for the protective measures in the said matter: or is it an Authoritarian degree?

Dear FOI (PUBLIC HEALTH SCOTLAND),
There is a medical emerency for you to reconsider advcing the public to wear a mask; whereas
Mask wearing has “well-known risks that have been well-studied and they’re not being discussed in the risk analysis. Dr. James Meehan, MD followed by warning that
“I’m seeing patients that have facial rashes, fungal infections, bacterial infections. Reports coming from my colleagues, all over the world, are suggesting that the bacterial pneumonias are on the rise.
“Why might that be? Because untrained members of the public are wearing medical masks, repeatedly… in a non-sterile fashion… They’re becoming contaminated. They’re pulling them off of their car seat, off the rearview mirror, out of their pocket, from their countertop, and they’re reapplying a mask that should be worn fresh and sterile every single time.”
“New research is showing that cloth masks may be increasing the aerosolization of the SARS-COV-2 virus into the environment causing an increased transmission of the disease…”
In conclusion, Dr. Meehan states:
“In February and March we were told not to wear masks. What changed? The science didn’t change. The politics did. This is about compliance. It’s not about science… Our opposition is using low-level retrospective observational studies that should not be the basis for making a medical decision of this nature.”
Yours sincerely,
Bartholomeus Lakeman
