Another plandemic scam unmasked! In 2003 masks deemed potential SARS spreaders and made illegal

Masks became a virtue-signalling device for compliant and frightened people during the plandemic.


A CONVENIENTLY-forgotten Australian news story has completely exposed the lie that basic face masks can prevent infection from viruses.

The story from the Sydney Morning Herald on April 27th, 2003, reported that New South
Wales health authorities would issue massive fines to retailers or others who tried to sell masks as protection from the SARS virus that was spreading at the time.

The 2003 report quoted an infectious diseases professor at Sydney University who said the masks would actually spread the virus when they became moist from breathing and were only effective for 15 to 20 minutes. A traveler returning from China also told the paper she had been told that you needed 16 layers of mask to be 95% effective against the virus.

Meanwhile public health corporations like Queensland Health are still pushing the mask narrative, recommending they be worn under their current “amber tier” alert. But these so-called alerts are being ignored according to patients known to Cairns News. One patient was texted by the department about mask wearing to a dental facility but when he arrived there, he said the “directive” was totally ignored.

In 2003 health authorities had a starkly different narrative than in 2020. “Retailers who cash in on community fears about SARS by exaggerating the health benefits of surgical masks could face fines of up to $110,000,” the Herald reported. The NSW Fair Trading Minister Reba Meagher was quoted as warning that distributors and traders “could be prosecuted if it was suggested the masks offered unrealistic levels of protection from the disease”.

“I’m sure everyone would agree that it is un-Australian to profiteer from people’s fears and anxieties,” Ms Meagher said. “There appears to be some debate about whether surgical masks are able to minimise the effects of SARS.” Penalties could range from fines of up to $22,000 for an individual or $110,000 for a corporation.

“Health authorities have warned that surgical masks may not be an effective protection against the virus.” the newspaper noted. “Those masks are only effective so long as they are dry,” said Professor Yvonne Cossart of the Department of Infectious Diseases at the University of Sydney. “As soon as they become saturated with the moisture in your breath they stop doing their job and pass on the droplets,” the professor said.

“Professor Cossart said that could take as little as 15 or 20 minutes, after which the mask would need to be changed. But those warnings haven’t stopped people snapping up the masks, with retailers reporting they are having trouble keeping up with demand.”

The report went on to quote John Bell from the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia, owner of a pharmacy in Woollahra, Sydney, who said mask supplies were running low but agreed with Professor Cossart’s assessment regarding their effectiveness.

“I think they’re of marginal benefit,” he said. “In a way they give some comfort to people who think they’re doing as much as they can do to prevent the infection.”

The paper went on the report that Rosemary Taylor, of Kirribilli, arrived in Sydney from Shanghai (a week before the report) after a two-week holiday in China. She and her travelling companion Joan Switzer had worn the masks during the trip home, even though they had been warned they were of little value. “We were told you need 16 layers on your mask for it to offer 95per cent protection,” Ms Taylor said.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. It was all a scam. All of it.
    The last 3 years of our lives.
    The evidence is now laid bare albeit too late for many who have been injured or are now dead.
    Scammed, lied to, and deceived.

    The evidence allegedly uncovers a DOD USA Department of Defence Operation involvement if not perpetrator headed by them.

    Sasha is able to explain how it was pulled off including the Government contracts around the world.

    All the conjecture that has been bantered around, is coming to light.

    Now may justice be swift.

    This is what happens when you let people get away with things.
    They just do it again.

    What will the Judges in this Country do about it?
    This is their line in the sand.


  2. “Dr Kerry Chant, became world famous with her Corona Baloney Hoax sex messages telling couples how to have CoVID sex with masks, condoms, toys etc.”

    CoVID or no CoVID, Chant will always have trubble finding her way out of her paper bag. No doubt it was an attempt on her part to “normalise” the rest of us. My condolences to her.


  3. 1st Law of Science: You can’t beat $cience with Science.

    But none of this scam is really to do with $cience or Science. It’s to do with EVIL.


  4. Masks, all 16 layers of them, are only effective if they cause death by suffocation. That way at least you don’t die from ‘covid’ – the virus which has never been proven to exist! The FEAR machine is kept rolling by useless politician and media lies. The actual cause is still ignored.


  5. John Alexander… You said it. That is the common denominator; the final word; the bottom line… there is no definitive evidence of a virus in the first place. This is where the hangings should start. I just don’t see the point of trials.


  6. The lack of proof of virus is the most important thing. It’s the root for every single thing that’s happened. So many people are ripping off branches. They’ll grow back elsewhere. We’re trying to uproot the entire tree from the ground so the whole thing stops growing and dies. THERE IS NO VIRUS!!!

  7. Nicely spotted. Those SARS superspreaders 2003 had to soldier on with codral. No masks for them. But in 2020 the NSW CoVID commissar, Dr Kerry Chant, became world famous with her Corona Baloney Hoax sex messages telling couples how to have CoVID sex with masks, condoms, toys etc. I’ll bet a lot of people still have erotic dreams about this.
