Baker tells legacy media he wants mask mandates brought back in ‘some settings’

Michael Baker masks news

Otago University epidemiologist also told legacy media outlet NZ Herald he is part of a global team that had conducted the ‘most extensive review of masks worldwide’.

The media outlet interviewed Baker as part of their ‘Front Page‘ series which asked ‘Could it be time to bring in rules around mask use?’

Baker said that high-quality masks, such as N95 respirators, are crucial in preventing the spread of the ‘virus’ – even though no human-to-human transmission had ever taken place, and was unlikely to do so, without ‘gain of function’ intervention, according to world health expert Dr. Peter McCullough.

Nevertheless Baker said he was, ‘very worried about what’s happening with bird flu.’

‘One thing to remember is even the 1918 flu only had what we call a ‘case fatality risk’ of 2 per cent of the people who got it died from it and that was still a catastrophe. At the moment avian influenza has a case fatality of 50 per cent of the people who are getting this infection.’

Baker said masks such as the N95, which provide a ‘snug fit’, are particularly recommended in ‘high-risk settings’ such as hospitals and aged care facilities to protect the most vulnerable.

The research, endorsed by some experts and published in the journal Clinical Microbiology Reviews, claims consistent mask-wearing in public places like transport, workplaces, and other communal areas can significantly mitigate the transmission of respiratory infections.

With the looming threat of avian influenza, which has shown a potentially devastating case fatality rate in its limited human infections, the call for mask mandates is underscored by a sense of urgency, the article claimed.

Baker compared mask mandates to safety measures like seat belts, saying that widespread mask usage could be a critical component in safeguarding public health against ‘high-risk viruses’, urging for policies that reflect the serious implications of these health threats.

Bird Flu Jabs

Meanwhile the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) in the US military was already stock-piling a ‘self-replicating messenger RNA vaccine’ against Bird Flu, expert Dr. Peter McCullough told Pete Santilli of LFA TV.

‘At the time they got approval [for the vaccine] they didn’t have a US case in many, many years. We’ve had one case in Colorado – this poor guy who got ordered to destroy the chickens… this guy in Texas got a little bird flu in his eye… one, someone today in Michigan, and one in Australia, so we’re going to hear more human cases.

‘Remember what they’re doing now… Michigan has this declaration of ‘Extraordinary Emergency’ – that’s the word they use. They’re coming out to farms in hazmat suits, and guess what? They’re doing PCR testing on the animals…’

‘This is right ahead of the WHO meetings. This is going to create enough of a scare, where the WHO says ‘we have to step in and do something’.

‘I predict it’s going to keep revving through the year. By the time we get to the presidential election we’re going to have sky-high food prices, we’re going to have the country on edge and in fear. I don’t think there’s going to much of a human threat, but I tell you what, I think there’s going to be a real constrain on the food supply. The government reimburses the farmers if they destroy the flocks and herds. So the farmers end up ok financially, it’s the consumer that gets constrained at the grocery store.’

  1. Just flock off pal……masks are total BS, studies in Europe show their effectiveness to be essentially the margin of error….

  2. Glad they mentioned the 1918 flu. It’s estimated that 50 percent of the people died because of secondary infection from wearing a mask. In other words, don’t wear masks and only half the number of people die, or to put it another way, masks kill.

    Also, masks cause oxygen deprivation (21.5 down to 17 percent – like being at 5000ft altitude) and CO2 excess (from 430ppm [parts per million] up to between 10000 to 30000ppm – between 1 to 3 percent CO2). Not to mention the secondary infection (as above) and also rebreathing spores from plants that would naturally be coughed out.

    Masks trash your immune system, just like the vaccine. Just what you don’t need when actually trying to fight a virus.

  3. During the 1918 flu pandemic in New Zealand, inhalation chambers were set up in towns and cities as a means to boost immunity. The public were encouraged to attend these chambers and inhale a zinc sulfate mist, a process that was said to disinfect the lungs and throat and protect against infection. In reality, the inhalation of zinc sulfate caused damage to the lungs and throat, thereby making participants more susceptible to infection.
    In towns such as Ashburton, New Zealand for example, in order to be eligible to travel by train, people had to present documentation at the train station proving that they had been through the inhalation chamber.
    The inhalation chamber which was set up in the old Dunedin Post Office building was described as follows: “It was a small room, relatively airtight, holding 20 or 30 persons, and the air is impregnated with the vapour of zinc sulphate. Each batch remains in the chamber for 10 minutes, and the persons treated are instructed to breathe through the nose at first, and then through the mouth.”

  4. Fear mongering shills back on the circuit, including “alternative” experts like the slippery McCullogh. They can all f*** off back to whatever rock they slithered out from under and leave us all alone

  5. The masks worked really well in Sydney at the end of 21 start of 22! Couldn’t not wear one outside or inside in public( without fear of violence to your person) in 95% vaccinated Sydney, yet omicron ripped through the population.

    How can you claim they work after that? Unless you are a total sell-out

  6. It’s difficult to fathom just how braindead Michael Baker has become.

    A genuine question:

    Has he always been like this , or is he being blackmailed into making these absurdly dimwitted public statements?

  7. Is ‘Professor’ Michael Baker up-to-date with his covid ‘vaccine’ booster injections?

    If not, why not?

    It’s well past time to hang these evil lying b*stards out to dry.

  8. Why is this f..k wit getting air time?
    How is he still considered an expert in his field when everything that came out of his mouth was wrong and he is still denying the scientific research about masks.
    Michael you can take your masks and vaccines crawl under a rock and die

    • He is the reason I woke up to the madness and corruption of covid, the dangerous nature of the vaccines etc and I thank him for that. He’s a hero to me, and because of his courage he saved thousands of people from injecting themselves with that poison.

      Is the long term safety data in yet or nah?

  9. SILENCE THIS TREASONOUS MURDERING FRAUDSTER CRIMINAL NOW.
    JAIL OR EXECUTION FOR HIS COMPLICITY IN DEMOCIDE.
    MURDERER
    JAIL.
    EXECUTION.
    DEMOCIDAL CRIMINAL.
    SILENCE THIS FRAUDSTER.
    ASSET STRIP THIS CRIMINAL
    LINE THE REST UP.
    THESE ARE CRIMINAL MURDERERS.
    I DO NOT CONSENT.
    I DO NOT OBEY DEMOCIDAL KILLERS NOR THEIR FECKLESS AGENTS

    • Where does Baker live?
      Where does he show his visage?
      What is his schedule at Otago university?
      Is there a back entrance?
      Who are his associates?
      Maybe they just need a bit of fruitful dedicated discussion with demonstrators?
      Does he appreciate that he lives in interesting times?

  10. WE ALSO DO NOT CONSENT! NOT NOW OR IN THE FUTURE!!
    HIS ‘SOME SETTINGS’ WOULD BECOME ‘ALL SETTINGS’…
    Many are still driving around in their cars etc. STILL WEARING MASKS, DEPRIVING THEMSELVES OF OXYGEN, AND ARE MAKING MISTAKES IN TRAFFIC AS A RESULT!
    Masks are a driving and social hazard.
    Note- U.S. State of North Carolina has now banned such ‘masks’ in public…!

  11. McCullough is for vaccines but not these ones. Says something about his agenda. He is making
    Ship loads of dosh from his Wellness endeavours.
    Don’t shoot the messenger. Maybe some unadulterated common sense would go a long way to seeing reality. Do some research on vaccines. They are a con as is the concept of a virus.

    • Haha John – absolutely dreadful attempt to discredit one of the best and most published cardiologists IN THE WORLD. Oh he’s an epidemiologist and an internist as well. Beat that. You’re just a troll and a terrible one at that 😂

      It’s not hard to see that Peter McCullough is one of the most genuine people and he cares for humanity.

      He’s a legend.

  12. This from the ‘Methodological Approach’ section of the “Masks and respirators for prevention of respiratory infections: a state of the science review”;

    “Part of the confusion on this topic can be traced back to philosophical issues such as ontology (what is the nature of reality?) and epistemology (how can we know that reality?), on which different scholars took widely differing views. The Cochrane review of non-pharmaceutical interventions, for example, appears to rest on the assumption that trustworthy evidence on this topic comes primarily or exclusively from RCTs and that if RCTs have been identified, non-RCT evidence can be ignored (9). An alternative view is that evidence-based medicine’s “hierarchy of evidence” (with RCTs as the assumed gold standard) is inappropriate for multifaceted topics such as masking (12, 14, 18, 19). Some have argued that the scientific value of the RCT has become inflated, particularly among doctors, leading them to overlook high-quality non-RCT evidence (e.g., mechanistic evidence about how the virus spreads can inform optimization of intervention design, and studies of how masking policies played out in real-world settings can provide useful case studies for policymakers in other settings). Overvaluing the RCT as a design also allows poor-quality RCTs (e.g., of intervention designs which do not take account of mechanism and which may therefore mislead rather than inform) to be published in high-impact journals and gain undue influence (20, 21). PubMed lists 88 meta-analyses of trials and other comparative studies of masks undertaken since 2020, with varying research questions, methods, and interpretations. Importantly, systematic review and meta-analysis can be subject to significant biases, flaws, and mistakes, just as in any other research design (22). These synthesis methods are limited by the quality of primary studies included and should not be considered definitive without critical analysis.
    To identify key reviews and primary studies, we recruited authors familiar with relevant literature in a wide range of disciplines (public health, epidemiology, infectious diseases, biosecurity, fluid dynamics, materials science, modeling, data science, clinical trials, meta-analysis, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and occupational hygiene). We began with sources known to these authors and supplemented them by searching PubMed, Embase, and Social Science Citation Index using key words. We citation-tracked seminal sources using Google Scholar. We also sent requests to colleagues in relevant fields and posted on social media (X, Mastodon, and BlueSky).”

    So they make up reasons for including non random control trial studies and reviews in this review.

    Then they talk about the authors of other trials (presumably the ones that didn’t find value in masking) having biases and skewing results. And then, go on to say the authors of this reviews could use studies and reviews they are familiar with. Surely that is leaning into the biases of their own authors.

    They then give more importance to the results from observational and ‘real world data’. They must have thrown out the real world data from NZ and Australia then, because I definantly remember all the masked up nurses, doctors and teachers getting sick.

    A joke of a review. Most of the RCT’s they include (probably the same ones used in the Cochrane review) resulted in no significant difference in the masked or non-masked cohorts.

  13. Random control trials are the gold standard(and the Cochrane review of RCT’s is gold plus), unless they are being used to study masking apparently

  14. The most obvious tell of all.. how many masked up jabberoos do you know who got sick? How many? That is pure science, right in front of your eyes and anyone who denies what they see, well, they don’t have much in the brain department and no piece of paper saying you have academic credentials or this study says this and that study says that means absolute diddly squat.. and this is why we don’t trust the likes of Baker or Blakely etc… it’s all smoke and mirrors and anyone with eyes to see, can see it… for what it is…Bullsh–….
