Cochrane Review author says governments “don’t have the science to back up what they claim.”
Back in the pandemic’s early days, Anthony Fauci emailed a senior health expert his honest assessment on the efficacy of masks, “Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection.”
Within months, however, Fauci was back on message: masks block infection, and only right-wingers believe the opposite.
The mask controversy continues to this day, as they have become a totem of smart thinking amongst Lefty urban liberals, looking for a Team Blue war badge in America’s ongoing culture battles. Nonetheless, the science has not changed since Fauci’s first assessment that masks do little to stop virus transmission—including in the latest Cochrane Review, which examined nonpharmaceutical interventions to slow and stop virus spread.
