German Judge Sentenced For Striking Down Rules That Children Must Wear COVID Masks in Schools

A judge in Germany has been handed a two-year suspended prison sentence, accused of ‘perverting the law’ after ordering schools not to enforce lockdown regulations during the pandemic.


Despite many governments making them mandatory in certain settings, it turns out that standard cloth masks barely filter any particles at all, thus essentially making them almost useless for preventing the spread of COVID-19. As reported in March 2022, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Bristol in the UK suggested that such masks may even have contributed to the spread of the pandemic as they encouraged the people wearing them to believe they were acting safely.

Just as bad, however, the use of disposable masks and gloves has also been having a dramatic effect on environmental waste and pollution, with billions of them ending up in the sea. A study published in 2020 in the Environmental Science and Technology journal found that every month an astonishing 129 billion plastic face masks and 65 billion plastic gloves were being used worldwide in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Not surprisingly, therefore, the researchers say that reversals of bans on single-use plastics have been “highly supported by the plastic industry.”

To read how recent scientific findings reveal that mask use has significant negative effects, potentially even increasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases and overall mortality, see this article on our website.
