The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has found “no evidence” which proves medical-grade face masks protected vulnerable people from COVID-19, according to a new study.
The study investigated if masks such as N95, KN95, and FFP2 helped prevent vulnerable people from contracting the virus.
“The review did not identify any studies for inclusion, and so could provide no evidence to answer the research question,” the authors concluded.
“No studies matching the inclusion criteria were found, so no evidence could be presented,” they adding, admitting the study conclusively proved face masks don’t work against COVID.
So after years of being forced to wear face masks and being unable to breathe at times barely, was this all for nothing?
Professor of evidence-based medicine at the University of Oxford, Prof Carl Heneghan, said there were virtually no high-quality trials that showed face mask worked.
“I do not understand why there’s been a lack of will to do high-quality trials in this area,” he told the Telegraph.
“We have completely failed to address this issue, and I actually consider that to be an issue that the [Covid] inquiry needs to look at.”
“If there’s another pandemic around the corner, we still haven’t addressed any of these issues. We’ve not learned anything,” Prof Heneghan added.
In the absence of any conclusive evidence that face masks worked, the media and the government worked overtime in the early days of the pandemic to convince people of their effectiveness.
The government propaganda was so finely tuned it resulted in an army of Karens policing people into submission.
Those who dared to question the effectiveness of face masks were called anti-vaxxers, far-right neo-nazis, vilified across social media, and sometimes attacked physically public.
The UK government later admitted that face masks were a symbolic tool to remind people they were in a pandemic.
It did its job at the expense of the economy, common sense, and human sanity.
Even as far back as 2020, the publication of the ‘Danmask-19 trial’ was conducted in Denmark to determine if maks worked.
The study found statistical evidence which suggested maks do not prevent the contraction of Covid-19.
As The Spectator reported at the time:
But overall, there is a troubling lack of robust evidence on face masks and Covid-19. There have only been three community trials during the current pandemic comparing the use of masks with various alternatives – one in Guinea-Bissau, one in India and this latest trial in Denmark. The low number of studies into the effect different interventions have on the spread of Covid-19 – a subject of global importance – suggests there is a total lack of interest from governments in pursuing evidence-based medicine. And this starkly contrasts with the huge sums they have spent on ‘boutique relations’ consultants advising the government.
