Danish study finds face masks provide limited protection against Coronavirus…

A large Danish study found no significant protection against the Coronavirus after examining two groups with a total of over 6,000 randomized participants. The study only examined whether people with masks were protected and not whether masks limited the infection of others.
In the study, 2.1% of the participants without masks contracted corona, while 1.8% of the participants with masks also contracted corona. The difference is so minor, that researchers argue that there is no basis to conclude that masks actually work.
One of the researchers stated the following:
“It should therefore be emphasized that these results cannot be used to raise doubts that the widespread use of masks outside of healthcare can be an effective means of reducing Sars-CoV-2 infections (coronavirus, ed.),”
This appears to be the first official RCT on masks. It also means that mask mandates implemented against world governments would have marginal to no benefit. Unfortunately mask mandates have been sold as “scientific” despite very limited scientific evidence that masks actually work. But are the mask mandates really about protecting you from the Coronavirus? Many of our readers already know the answer to that one.
