Mask-art... A reminder that the streets were closed on Norways National Day, Mai 17, 2020. Why celebrate if no longer citizens of a free, independent country, right?

Face Mask Debate in Norway
The "Experts"(Idiots) push further on the agenda. Here are some links, I translated the articles for everyone to know what`s been going on in the recent months in the mainstream media regards face masks in Norway:
First article:

https://www.dagbladet.no/nyheter/eksper ... d/72721336

"Experts: Must be a mask injunction

Shortly, new advice on the use of face masks is expected. Several experts believe masks must be imposed in Norway.
FACE MASK: On August 7, it becomes clear whether masks should be recommended or required, which has led to enormous progress at Vitus Apotek(Farmacy)
Masks has repeatedly been a hot topic in the media, and the opinions on whether to introduce it or not have been many.
Now deputy health director Espen Rostrup Nakstad has said that there will soon be new advice for masks, and Bent Høie met on Thursday afternoon various parties in the public transport sector and NHO for an urgent meeting on masks.

Dagbladet has asked several experts in medicine and infection control whether the Norwegian authorities should now recommend masks.
- Clear warning
Professor of microbiology and infection control at the University of Southeast Norway, Jörn Klein, is one of them.

"The current development is a clear warning and is very worrying for me. The number of new infections and deaths has fallen significantly throughout Europe, but in recent days we have seen the number of new infections increase significantly again. This development is really very worrying," Klein told Dagbladet.
He believes masks are a useful supplement to keep your distance.
"We will see many smaller eruptions in the future occurring in different places at the same time. And we will see these outbreaks become more frequent. Everyone must now prevent the virus from spreading again quickly and uncontrollably," the professor continues.
- Ruthless
He refers to the most recent outbreaks of infection in Norway.

-All this only happens because we humans no longer comply with the rules after the FFI's recommendations are too soft. Harry's trade in Sweden, indoor celebrations and large gatherings in poorly ventilated rooms without a face mask are ruthless, he says.He thinks a face mask injunction could prevent a potential new lockdown.
"If we are able to bring the number of new infections approximately zero again, and in addition introduce binding testing upon entry to Norway in combination with the follow-up test after 3-4 days after entry, society can function almost normally," he elaborates.
Klein believes masks in kindergartens are unrealistic, but thinks there should be an injunction in every room indoors where there are more people meeting.
COVID-19:
Environmental activists warns that the pandemic has led to increased pollution of the sea after finding large amounts of disposable face masks and disposable gloves there
Hasle has been an avid contributor to the corona debate, and believes it is high time that recommendations and injunctions on face masks are introduced.
"If the R's remain below one, the virus will not spread effectively, and masks are a tool that can help with that," Hasle told Dagbladet.

Doctor Gunnar Hasle, who owns the Travel Clinic in Oslo believes people should use a masks to prevent infection of the coronavirus, and encourages people to make their own.
- Vision rules can go bad
Bjørg Marit Andersen, professor and former head of infection at Ullevål Hospital, is also among those who recommend masks.
"I think it is time to introduce a mask in all forms of public transport where there are a lot of people gathered for example in shopping centres, theatre, cinema and other community experiences where there are many strangers who meet," Andersen told Dagbladet.
bjørg marit andersen.jpg
bjørg marit andersen.jpg (66.22 KiB) Viewed 1648 times
She points out that a number of countries in Europe have introduced face masks with success.
- When the two-meter rule disappeared, all the distance between people disappeared. With vision rules, things can go bad, and then the population will lose confidence in the health authorities," Andersen continues.
She believes that an injunction should be introduced, and not a recommendation so that Norwegians do not avoid using a masks if they do not have to.
RECOMMEND: Bjørg Marit Andersen believes it is time for the authorities to recommend face masks.
- Use your creativity
All experts believe a face mask must be readily available if there is a recommendation or injunction.
Hasle says that even homemade face masks prevent people who don't know they're infected to spread drops around them.
More countries are turning red.
Whether face masks become a recommendation or injunction, Hasle believes there will be a thriving home production of face masks.
- You can use your creativity and make masks that match the other clothes. If you want to save money, you can use, for example, fabric from a worn duvet cover. Such a face mask will reduce the amount of drops coming out of the mouth, the doctor elaborates.
- Must be free
He claims that half of the covid-19 infection comes from people who don't have symptoms.
"You can't know if you're infectious, so everyone should wear face masks when you're in places where you meet other people," he says, stressing that homemade face masks provide less protection from getting infected.
Professor Andersen believes it is important that masks become available for free.
"This is how we can save the population from an extra-large burden," she says, continuing:
"It is also important that there is a garbage system so that face maks are not left around the community.
• In an earlier version of this article, there were reports of infection outbreaks on Color Line. That's not true. The right thing is that some of their passengers have since tested positive. "

Second article:

https://www.klartale.no/norge/sier-det- ... -1.1753917

"Says it's not mandatory to wear a face mask

The Health Minister, Bent Høye, says there may be a recommendation on face masks. But he says it won't be mandatory now.
Norwegian Minister of Health Bent Høye.jpg

Face masks may be recommended in some situations. But it will not be mandatory to use," says Health Minister Bent Høie.
"The Norwegian Institute of Public Health is working to make recommendations on whether there are situations in Norway where it may be appropriate to recommend face masks. As of now, there are no plans to make a general injunction on face masks when people are out, for example. That's what Høie told the channel NRK on Friday morning, August 7.
"The government has called a press conference on Friday at 2 p.m. There they will probably talk about face masks.
It is important to keep a metre distance to others anyway. Masks cannot replace this", says Høie.
–If we make a recommendation to wear a face mask, it will be in situations where it is difficult to keep a distance. For example, in public transport during rush hour, he says.
In recent days, many have bought face masks at pharmacies. The price of face masks has more than seven-fold in recent times. That's what NRK wrote on Thursday.
In recent days, several pharmacies have reported a large increase in demand from people who want to secure a face mask. NRK also wrote on Thursday that the price of mask has more than sevenfold in recent times.
The pharmacy association said that people do not need to stock up on face masks.They've got enough in stock.
It may not be surgical face mask that may be recommended. That's what Høie says.
"There may also be fabric that are in clothes that people can reuse and wash," he says.
He says there will be a lot of information about how to use face masks. And what types people can use. That's if there's a recommendation to wear a face mask."

Third and fourth article:

https://flysmart24.no/2020/06/12/na-bli ... norwegian/

"Norwegian Airline's face mask injunction
maskdebate1.jpg
maskdebate1.jpg (116.78 KiB) Viewed 1648 times
Since the contagion measures were sharpened for aviation, SAS and Norwegian have chosen their own path when it comes to the injunction to use a face mask on board the aircraft. SAS chose to introduce the injunction, while Norwegian chose to see the situation.
After Transport Minister Knut Arild Hareide (KrF) on Thursday decided to walk away from demands for a blocked middle seat on board the planes in Norway, Norwegian has now reconsidered the face mask injunction:
It will take place from Wednesday, June 17.
Both SAS and Norwegian are very pleased that it is now possible to sell all the seats on board the planes. Until now, every third seat has been blocked, a rule that ceased from Thursday.
Voluntary action
–Yes, we are pleased that the requirement for blockage of the middle seats is removed, so that in the future we can fill the planes. This means better profitability for us as a company and greater flexibility for our customers. We will continue to do our utmost to maintain good infection protection on board," says Norwegian press officer Andreas Hjørnholm to Flysmart24.
When Norwegian introduces a face mask for everyone, this is a voluntary measure. Health Minister Bent Høie (H) said on Thursday, when the new rules were put forward, that both the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the Directorate of Health had stepped in to maintain the middle seat requirement.
EU scheme
The Conservative Party chose not to follow this advice when adjusting the contagion advice for aviation, so that they come in line with the European recommendations given by the European Civil Aviation Authority EASA. However, both Høie and Hareide stressed that the requirement for a blocked middle seat was lifted on the condition that the distance recommendations and the other basic infection control councils are followed everywhere else during the journey.
"The aviation industry is an international industry, and we are now in a phase where we gradually open up and step down on the measures. We believe that blocking the middle seat over time can be so challenging for the aviation industry, that with the contagion situation we now have, we can limp on this and still have control over the spread of infection. The use of a face mask does not become part of the authority's advice now. The airlines can decide for themselves, Høie said.
In addition to face mask s, airlines have been ordered to take several other infection control measures. When the passengers are to board, those who sit at the back should always go first, and vice versa on arrival. There are also calls for distancering before travellers board by blocking chairs at airports so that passengers do not get too close to each other.
In addition, both SAS and Norwegian have chosen to stop all serving along the way. Widerøe also introduces a face mask injunction, which takes place from Monday 15. June."

"Passed out behind the face mask of the plane

A 19-year-old woman passed out on the flight from Oslo to Bodø last week, writes Aftenposten. Flight doctors say face masks themselves do not prevent oxygen uptake on flights, but that face masks can be an indirect cause of some fainting, for example by becoming anxious about the mask.
Sas aircraft face masks"

These articles only show the main stream media spin and does not reflect my opinion on the matter, but just so you know - Fuck the face mask!

Re: Lockdown and the "new normal" in Scandinavia

This post will present another article from FHI from 2018, translated to English. Death rates from the common flu in Norway year 2017/2018 were significantly higher than the so called Covid-19 virus pandemic. Under these circumstances there was no hysteria, lockdown/restrictions , possible mandatory vaccines and a ridiculous face mask debate followed up by the slogan "A New Normal"..

Record number of elderly hospitalized with influenza in winter 2017/2018
Published 10.10.2018"

"The elderly part of the population was hit hard by the long-running flu outbreak last winter. A record number of people were hospitalized. Vaccine can prevent hospitalizations. A significantly larger number were hospitalized with influenza last season compared to the previous three seasons. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health hopes that the experience will lead to more people vaccinating before next season.
–The many hospitalizations last season were both due to the fact that the flu outbreak was long-lasting and extensive, and that the viruses that circulated hit the oldest hardest. Older people are also at a high risk of developing severe influenza and hospitalisations," says Acting Director General Karoline Bragstad of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health."

"In the 2017-2018 season, an estimated 7,600 patients were hospitalized with detected influenza. About two-thirds of these were 60 years of age or older. The previous season there were around 5,000 people with influenza, even this number was high. Compared to last season, twice as many influenza outbreaks in health facilities were reported to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health."

"A hard season:

Although the intensity of the 2017-18 season never reached the very high altitudes, it was long-lasting with many sick ones. Therefore, the eruption in sum was quite large.
In the winter of 2017-2018, influenza B-Yamagata dominated viruses. In addition, some influenza A(H3N2) was in circulation. Both are viruses that can cause harsh flu epidemics with many sick people and many hospitalizations as they often hit the oldest hardest," says Bragstad.
Far more people applied for a doctor due to flu-like illness in the 2017-2018 season than before.
A total of 142,092 people were diagnosed with flu-like illness last season. The number has not been this high since the pandemic in 2009.(Swine flu pandemic)
"This may be because in the population there was little immunity to the influenza B virus that drove the outbreak, and that we had an exceptionally long-term outbreak," says Bragstad, referring to the attached seasonal report for 2017-18."

"Deaths:
"Last winter there were also more flu-related deaths than expected. An influenza outbreak causes an average of about 900 deaths annually in Norway. In comparison, around 1,400 flu-related deaths were estimated".

"About influenza and influenza vaccine:

"Every year, around 10 per cent of the population is infected. Approximately 1.6 million Norwegians belong to risk groups that are particularly vulnerable to developing severe influenza disease. These are recommended annual influenza vaccine. See below who belongs to the risk groups."

"The average effect of the flu vaccine is 60 percent. This means that someone gets the flu even if they are vaccinated. Vaccination can still reduce the likelihood of developing serious illness."

"Joyful increase:"

"We have seen a joyous increase in the number of people who vaccinate themselves, especially among healthcare professionals. The number of distributed vaccine doses increased last year by more than 16 percent compared to the previous season. We take this as a sign that it is paying off with national and local efforts to educate about influenza and flu vaccination."

"–Vaccination is the most important preventive measure we have to prevent severe influenza disease and death. However, even though we are seeing an increase in vaccination coverage, there are still many among health professionals and in the risk groups who do not vaccinate."

"We are now facing a new autumn and a new flu season. We hope the last two hard flu seasons help more people understand that influenza can be severe and are considering vaccinating against influenza this year," concludes Bragstad.
– These should take the flu vaccine"

"Influenza vaccine is especially recommended for the following risk groups:
Pregnant women after the 12th week of pregnancy (2nd and 3rd trimester). Pregnant women in the first trimester with other additional risks should also be offered vaccination
Residents of care homes and nursing homes.
Everyone from the age of 65.
Children and adults with:
diabetes type 1 and 2
chronic respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, liver failure or renal failure
chronic neurological disease or injury
weakened immune system
very severe obesity (BMI over 40)
other serious and/or chronic disease in which influenza poses a serious health risk, after individual assessment by a physician"

"In addition, influenza vaccine is recommended for:
Healthcare professionals who have patient contact.
Household contacts to immunosuppressed patients.
Those who have regular contact with live pigs."

"The flu vaccines are being passed on from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health to municipalities and hospitals, and will be available to the risk groups and others who are recommended vaccine in the next few weeks. Contact your GP or local authority vaccination site for a vaccine. People in the risk groups are entitled to a vaccine at a reduced price when it takes the vaccine through offers organised by the municipality. Those who recommend vaccine in an occupational context should contact their employer for information about offers in the workplace."

Director General of Norwegian Institute of Public Health is Camilla Stoltenberg, sister of former prime minister of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg, now secretary general of NATO since 2014:

- Even though the official narrative clearly show that the Corona virus is not a real threat to the public health and is much less deadly than the common flu we are still under tracking and tracing, an increase in surveillance and people are manipulated into thinking we are threatened by an invisible global enemy, thanks to the politicians and the mainstream media. The elderly has the highest death rates, children from 0-9 years old are close to zero, this "result" could be due to the fact that small children haven`t yet developed anti bodies. We are obviously sold the idea that we should be afraid of our own immune system?
- A national and a global hoax.

Many thanks for the post, NatureisFreedom. I moved your post into this topic since it concerns Scandinavia ;)
I copied the text regards to that link: https://nypost.com/2020/08/19/swedens-t ... dangerous/

"Sweden’s disease expert says just wearing face masks could be ‘very dangerous’

Sweden’s top infectious disease expert has resisted recommending face masks for the general population — arguing it’s “very dangerous” if people believe the coverings alone will stop the spread of the coronavirus.
Anders Tegnell, chief epidemiologist at Sweden’s Public Health Agency, has repeatedly expressed skepticism that face masks will control virus outbreaks, the Financial Times reported.

“It is very dangerous to believe face masks would change the game when it comes to COVID-19,” said Tengell, who is considered the country’s equivalent of Dr. Anthony Fauci from the White House COVID-19 task force.

He noted that countries with widespread mask compliance, such as Belgium and Spain, were still seeing rising virus rates.

“Face masks can be a complement to other things when other things are safely in place,” he said. “But to start with having face masks and then think you can crowd your buses or your shopping malls — that’s definitely a mistake.”

He completely brushed off the prospect of wearing masks last month, saying, “With numbers diminishing very quickly in Sweden, we see no point in wearing a face mask in Sweden, not even on public transport.”
Tegnell has argued that evidence about the effectiveness of face mask use was “astonishingly weak.”

“I’m surprised that we don’t have more or better studies showing what effect masks actually have,” he told the UK Times.
The infectious disease expert has faced backlash after the nation controversially refused to lock down, leading to a higher death rate per capita than neighboring countries that took stricter approaches.
