New Study Shows Mask-Wearing Children at Risk for ‘unacceptable’ CO2 Levels, Cautions Against the Practice; Google Building 'Vaccine Passport' Into Android, and other C-Virus related stories

Horowitz: New study shows mask-wearing children at risk for ‘unacceptable’ CO2 levels, cautions against the practice:
We've spent over a year debating nonexistent evidence that masks effectively protect against the spread of viruses. However, there has been little debate and few published studies on potential harms of mask-wearing, a reality that has allowed zealous maskers to aggressively push their mandate as harmless, with no downside. Well, now we have a randomized controlled trial published in JAMA that raises serious concerns about this practice.
Researchers from Germany conducted a blinded randomized controlled trial of 45 children wearing masks and measured the baseline carbon dioxide levels during inhalation and exhalation behind various masks as compared to the levels of unmasked children. The results are very concerning:
We measured means (SDs) between 13 120 (384) and 13 910 (374) ppm of carbon dioxide in inhaled air under surgical and filtering facepiece 2 (FFP2) masks, which is higher than what is already deemed unacceptable by the German Federal Environmental Office by a factor of 6. This was a value reached after 3 minutes of measurement. Children under normal conditions in schools wear such masks for a mean of 270 (interquartile range, 120-390) minutes. The Figure shows that the value of the child with the lowest carbon dioxide level was 3-fold greater than the limit of 0.2 % by volume. The youngest children had the highest values, with one 7-year-old child's carbon dioxide level measured at 25 000 ppm. (Emphasis added.)
Why has nobody in our government bothered to study this before experimenting on children for a virus that doesn't affect them?
The German researchers conclude that there is a concern of mask-wearing causing hypercapnia, and as such, children should not be forced to wear masks: "This leads in turn to impairments attributable to hypercapnia. A recent review concluded that there was ample evidence for adverse effects of wearing such masks. We suggest that decision-makers weigh the hard evidence produced by these experimental measurements accordingly, which suggest that children should not be forced to wear face masks." --->READ MORE HERE
Google Building 'Vaccine Passport' Into Android:
The new approach to vaccine passports, which are controversial and unpopular, is to call them by a different name. A rose by any other name might not smell as sweet and a vaccine passport by any other name would be less totalitarian
California is refusing to call them vaccine passports. And Google has creatively decided to call them COVID cards. Their marketing department must have burned the midnight oil coming up with that one. But the vaccine passports, sorry COVID cards, are coming to Android.
Google will soon let Android users carry a COVID vaccine card on their phones. It has updated Android’s built-in passes system to enable a “simple and secure” way to store digital vaccine and test cards on Android devices.

The feature will initially roll out in the US, followed by other countries.
