A German study involving over 25,000 children reveals that major negative
impacts on the physical, psychological, and behavioral health of children
may be far more widespread than reported in the media and by government
officials -- affecting approximately 68% and contributing to 24 distinct
health complaints, according to parent submitted observations.

A concerning study conducted in Germany has been posted online as a preprint
(not yet peer-reviewed) titled, “Corona children studies "Co-Ki": First
results of a Germany-wide registry on mouth and nose covering (mask) in
children,” describing the results of 17,854 parent submitted reports on
health complaints or impairments experienced as a result of wearing masks by
their 25,930 children.

The study was designed to both explore the accumulating narratives reported
by parents, educators, and doctors about increasing problems and health
complaints in children and adolescents wearinng masks, as well as to provide
the first known online registry where parents, doctors, teachers, and others
can enter their first-hand observations. The registry and the questionnaire
can be found online at www.co-ki-masken.de

The study authors stated:

“There are no manufacturer-independent studies on the use of masks for
children and adolescents that are certified as medical products for
occupational safety in professional applications. In addition, due to the
unknown materials used, there are no findings on the potential protective
effects or side effects of the often home-made "everyday masks" worn by the
majority of children. In view of the ongoing measures to contain the
COVID-19 pandemic, and in particular the varying obligations for children
and adolescents to wear masks in school over a longer period of time, there
is an urgent need for research.”

On October 20th, 2020, 363 doctors were asked to make entries and inform
parents and teachers of the existence of the registry.

The data recorded in the registry included information regarding the role of
the registrant, demographic data, previous illnesses, situation and duration
of mask wearing, type of mask, existence of complaints from the child about
an impairment via the mask, symptoms, behavioral problems, and the
respondent’s personal attitude to corona protection measures of the

On average, children wore masks for 270 minutes a day, with impairments
being reported at nearly the same rate by the children (67.7%) as the
parents (66.1%).

The study results were summarized as follows:

“By 26.10.2020 the registry had been used by 20,353 people. In this
publication we report the results from the parents, who entered data on a
total of 25,930 children. The average wearing time of the mask was 270
minutes per day. Impairments caused by wearing the mask were reported by
68% of the parents. These included irritability (60%), headache (53%),
difficulty concentrating (50%), less happiness (49%), reluctance to go to
school/kindergarten (44%), malaise (42%) impaired learning (38%) and
drowsiness or fatigue (37%)."

The childrens' complaints were reported across 24 distinct symptoms as
