1 504 337 Pregleda

We are putting our healthcare professionals who are on the frontlines of this coronavirus pandemic at serious risk when we send them out without proper personal protective equipment. As my colleagues and I continue to treat patients we are running critically low on N95 masks. I am no Mr. Beast, but I decided to personally take $50,000 and buy as many masks as I could and donate them to our struggling healthcare system. CONTINUE READING!
As you see in the video I was only able to complete about half my order so I'd like to donate the last $20,000 to a hospital or charity that YOU deem appropriate. Please comment and upvote where you'd like to see this money donated and after 72 hours I will make the donation. Thank you!

  • I hope that people around the world will have a standard mask, which is N95 masks, for all, since the surgical masks are mostly used for surgery. That's because I thought the surgical masks that I have at home can protect me from CoVid-19. I agree with his data on what masks is good to protect people against CoViD - 19.

  • It should be illegal to buy huge amounts of these masks for profit. People could be harmed cause someone is hoarding them

  • What's is gonna be Mike? Science research or political push? The viruses we live with are in the air, like oxygen, which travels freely through pretty well all types of masks. Masks don't stop infection...only cough/sneeze spray. Here's a list of studies from 1981-2015 proving this: Neil Orr’s study, published in 1981 in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Dr. Orr was a surgeon in the Severalls Surgical Unit in Colchester. And for six months, from March through August 1980, the surgeons and staff in that unit decided to see what would happen if they did not wear masks during surgeries. They wore no masks for six months, and compared the rate of surgical wound infections from March through August 1980 with the rate of wound infections from March through August of the previous four years. And they discovered, to their amazement, that when nobody wore masks during surgeries, the rate of wound infections was less than half what it was when everyone wore masks. Their conclusion: “It would appear that minimum contamination can best be achieved by not wearing a mask at all” and that wearing a mask during surgery “is a standard procedure that could be abandoned.”I was so amazed that I scoured the medical literature, sure that this was a fluke and that newer studies must show the utility of masks in preventing the spread of disease. But to my surprise the medical literature for the past forty-five years has been consistent: masks are useless in preventing the spread of disease and, if anything, are unsanitary objects that themselves spread bacteria and viruses.Ritter et al., in 1975, found that “the wearing of a surgical face mask had no effect upon the overall operating room environmental contamination.”Ha’eri and Wiley, in 1980, applied human albumin microspheres to the interior of surgical masks in 20 operations. At the end of each operation, wound washings were examined under the microscope. “Particle contamination of the wound was demonstrated in all experiments.”Laslett and Sabin, in 1989, found that caps and masks were not necessary during cardiac catheterization. “No infections were found in any patient, regardless of whether a cap or mask was used,” they wrote. Sjøl and Kelbaek came to the same conclusion in 2002.In Tunevall’s 1991 study, a general surgical team wore no masks in half of their surgeries for two years. After 1,537 operations performed with masks, the wound infection rate was 4.7%, while after 1,551 operations performed without masks, the wound infection rate was only 3.5%.A review by Skinner and Sutton in 2001 concluded that “The evidence for discontinuing the use of surgical face masks would appear to be stronger than the evidence available to support their continued use.”Lahme et al., in 2001, wrote that “surgical face masks worn by patients during regional anaesthesia, did not reduce the concentration of airborne bacteria over the operation field in our study. Thus they are dispensable.”Figueiredo et al., in 2001, reported that in five years of doing peritoneal dialysis without masks, rates of peritonitis in their unit were no different than rates in hospitals where masks were worn.Bahli did a systematic literature review in 2009 and found that “no significant difference in the incidence of postoperative wound infection was observed between masks groups and groups operated with no masks.”Surgeons at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, recognizing the lack of evidence supporting the use of masks, ceased requiring them in 2010 for anesthesiologists and other non-scrubbed personnel in the operating room. “Our decision to no longer require routine surgical masks for personnel not scrubbed for surgery is a departure from common practice. But the evidence to support this practice does not exist,” wrote Dr. Eva Sellden.Webster et al., in 2010, reported on obstetric, gynecological, general, orthopaedic, breast and urological surgeries performed on 827 patients. All non-scrubbed staff wore masks in half the surgeries, and none of the non-scrubbed staff wore masks in half the surgeries. Surgical site infections occurred in 11.5% of the Mask group, and in only 9.0% of the No Mask group.Lipp and Edwards reviewed the surgical literature in 2014 and found “no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked and unmasked group in any of the trials.” Vincent and Edwards updated this review in 2016 and the conclusion was the same.Carøe, in a 2014 review based on four studies and 6,006 patients, wrote that “none of the four studies found a difference in the number of post-operative infections whether you used a surgical mask or not.”Salassa and Swiontkowski, in 2014, investigated the necessity of scrubs, masks and head coverings in the operating room and concluded that “there is no evidence that these measures reduce the prevalence of surgical site infection.”Da Zhou et al., reviewing the literature in 2015, concluded that “there is a lack of substantial evidence to support claims that facemasks protect either patient or surgeon from infectious contamination.”Mandating masks has not kept death rates down anywhere. On the other hand keeping people with 'symptoms' at a distance or at home is reasonable. About the only reason one might have for a face mask is to stop coughing phlegm and sneezing spray. But even in that case, that individual ought to be home anyway. The 20 U.S. states that have never ordered people to wear face masks indoors and out have dramatically lower COVID-19 death rates than the 30 states that have mandated masks. Most of the no-mask states have COVID-19 death rates below 20 per 100,000 population, and none have a death rate higher than 55. All 13 states that have death rates higher 55 are states that have required the wearing of masks in all public places. It has not protected them.

Review section 6.1 of the vaccine insert for Fluzone vaccine deaths (link below). *****So, what is the real agenda? What is Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates true intentions here given these facts?****** Current COVID-19 Death Rate is 0.4 percent and 0.26% if you include asymptomatic individuals.

  • Hi Dr. Mike, I'd like to buy a bunch of these masks eventually - for protecting myself and my family, and also just for home construction projects. Obviously I'm not going to try to put myself in the purchase order when other people are still needing them. I don't have a critical job or any preexisting conditions. I do live in a high-rise with shared stairwell, so that does give me a bit of concern. Will you connect me with a timeline / updates on when people like me can go ahead and place our orders - and most importantly, how to find the genuine article? Whenever that is - May, June, whenever - let me know when production meets demand and you guys have all you need, so people in my category can get some?

  • I understand as demand suddenly spikes prices will increase, and people who are selling masks need motivation to continue selling, which is continued profits. However, I believe that there is a difference between windfall(bare minimum) profits, which are ethical profits, and price gouging, which are always unethical profits. 700% price increase is price gouging, and therefore unethical, no matter what.

  • Thank you so much Dr.Mike for your nobel efforts in trying to get these masks! Yes, unfortunately, the market is flooded with many fake face masks and many suppliers are stockpiling them to price gouge others. So, I'm working with a great college friend of mine who is a co-founder of Think66 and Shandeset, a government approved manufacturer that specializes in medical grade face masks. We are to trying to help people through the sale of genuine face masks to protect from the COVID-19 at a fair price. We were able to secure some 3M N95s with a supplier and selling them to only people working in the medical field et., government officials, and those willing to donate to the previously mentioned. As of now we are able to sell them for $5 with a minimum order quantity of 500,000, but we are working on trying to lower the price and moq, but on the bright side you do have the option of picking this masks at the warehouse yourself to verify their legitimacy. If your company needs the normal face masks, or you know someone generous enough to buy some to donate to the first responders and hospitals that are in dire need of face masks, please contact me so that we can help them out as face masks are scarce and have a large minimum order quantity. We can schedule a phone call to further discuss details. Thank you! 🙏
