Masks Make Little to No Difference

“A major controversy throughout the pandemic was surrounding the efficacy of face masks against the spread of COVID-19. However, a recent study supports that masks may have done little, if anything at all, to stop the spread of the virus. The study published by Cochrane Library, ‘Physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses,’ where esteemed researchers dug into the impact of physical interventions, like masks and hand washing, on the spread of COVID. Dr. Marty Makary joined Sunday Night in America to address this recent study and the vacillation on the effectiveness of masks since the start of the pandemic. ‘What public health officials did is they hedged on the wrong side of the issue. They had the wrong hypothesis. And when overwhelmingly strong evidence came out time after time, 65 studies on masks, 160 studies on natural immunity. Study after study, they didn’t evolve their position. They dug in,’ Makary said, who went on to say that these health officials were ‘intellectually dishonest’ and ‘at that point you’re basically putting out misinformation,’ explaining how the studies coming out of Sweden of schools that were masked vs. unmasked had ‘no difference’ in transmission. ‘If Dr. Fauci and all of those who pushed masks so fervently would have simply done their own randomized control study with good methodology, they could have answered the controversy two and a half years ago, but they chose to rule by dogma rather than scientific data,’ he added.”
