Pneumonia is a common symptom of upper respiratory viral infections you cabbage.
It's like the only part of that link he read was the title. The very first paragraph states:
"The majority of deaths during the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 were not caused by the influenza virus acting alone, report researchers from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. Instead, most victims succumbed to bacterial pneumonia following influenza virus infection. The pneumonia was caused when bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat invaded the lungs along a pathway created when the virus destroyed the cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs."
The bold is my emphasis.
Pure century old speculation here BUT: if the bacteria that usually inhabit the nose and throat were allowed to be expelled during normal breathing and not recycled by being blocked from a mask, perhaps that same bacteria wouldnt have moved south and invaded the lungs and damaging the bronchial tubes and lungs?
Sorry that comment is not peer reviewed. However, I posted that link just to see how consistent you are with me posting something peer reveiwed or at least from a reputable source and you still arent accepting it. Thats a you thing bruv, not a me thing.
