Shortly after the incumbent Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer (ÖVP) announced at his party conference that nobody would care about the virus anymore, Katarina Reich, head of the Gecko Commission in the Federal Chancellery, added one thing: People should be in Austria – as the only country in the world (!) continue to wear face masks over the summer – because of psychological, social habituation. Can you mock the population even more?
A comment by Willi Huber
Where is the dashing officer in the camouflage suit? In the meantime, the doctor Katharina Reich speaks for the Covid Commission “GECKO”, which is subordinate to the Austrian Federal Chancellery. And she says exciting things that are not very conducive to the psychological well-being of most Austrians. For example:
My personal opinion is that for several reasons – psychological, social habituation – the essential trade should remain with the mask over the summer
Katharina Reich, 16 May
Many well-informed people have known for a long time that face masks have no health benefit unless you are a painter, carpenter or other craftsman who should not inhale spray mist, abrasion particles or chips. Because even FFP2 masks, which are only mandatory in Austria worldwide, have no positive use against viruses:
From the beginning of the so-called pandemic, critics suspected that there were completely different aspects behind the masks. This has been confirmed time and again by “government experts” and politicians in interviews. You have to wear these masks to be constantly reminded that you are in the midst of a terrible pandemic. In earlier times of mankind, people were reminded of this by mountains of corpses on the streets – but as a substitute there were fake pictures from China and Italy.
In July 2020, the former Austrian child chancellor Kurz even wrote in writing that wearing masks had a symbolic character:
Even then, a number of Twitter users responded with images of slave masks, such as those used to transport African slaves in the dark ages of human history. For them, too, it had a symbolic character – the slave was always reminded of his condition of bondage.
So when the chairman of a commission that deals with the so-called corona epidemic day in and day out, after more than two years of an alleged pandemic, says again that the masks have a psychological and social effect above all, the assumption is that we been screwed pretty badly for a very, very long time.
By the way, Mrs. Reich a few more fun ideas:
- Mask duty throughout the summer
- Lockdown again in autumn (“prepare for home office”, “pre-celebrate birthdays”, “prepare for a socially reduced setting”)
One almost wishes that a Kasperl in camouflage would report on the brave war against the virus, which would visually fit the Ukraine crisis much better. By the way, there is no corona there, but real problems.
