‘No Evidence’ Masks Protect Vulnerable from Covid, New Study Finds

Researchers have concluded in a new study that “no evidence could be presented” to prove that masks protect vulnerable people from catching Covid.

A report on the study was published by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) this week.

The study investigated whether high-quality medical-grade N95, KN95, and FFP2 face masks helped protect vulnerable people in the community from the virus.

“The review did not identify any studies for inclusion, and so could provide no evidence to answer the research question,” the researchers concluded.

“No studies matching the inclusion criteria were found, so no evidence could be presented.”

Prof Carl Heneghan, professor of evidence-based medicine at the University of Oxford, noted that it was a “significant failing” that no evidence exists to support masking.

There are virtually no high-quality trials showing that face masks were effective at preventing infection, Heneghan noted.

“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,” Prof Heneghan added.

“We’ve not learned anything.”

Despite there never being any conclusive evidence either way that masks work, their supposed effectiveness was entrenched from the early days of the pandemic.

Health authorities initially told people not to wear masks and warned that they could exacerbate the situation.

Those who questioned the effectiveness of face masks were vilified by the corporate media and banned by Big Tech platforms.

This latest study is not the first to determine that masks are ineffective, however.

As Slay News previously reported, a massive international research collaboration earlier this year concluded that masks provide “little to no” protection against illness or infection rates.

The researchers analyzed several dozen rigorous studies focusing on “physical interventions” against Covid and influenza before reaching the conclusion.

Meanwhile, New Zealand has just extended its mask mandates while the rest of the world moves on from the pandemic.

As Slay News reported, the nation’s radical new Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has decided to extend current Covid restrictions for at least another two months.
