But mask mandates are about to return in a new guise.
A report quietly released by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) states that “no evidence could be presented” to prove medical-grade face masks protected vulnerable people from COVID-19!
The study investigated whether so-called high quality masks such as N95, KN95 and FFP2 coverings helped protect vulnerable people in the community from catching 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.”
Something that thousands of 'conspiracy theorists' had been saying all along.
Prof Carl Heneghan, professor of eviden those 'conspiracy theorists' said that it was a “significant failing” that there were virtually no high quality trials showing that face masks were effective at preventing infection.
“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.
Despite there never being any conclusive evidence either way that masks work, their supposed effectiveness was entrenched from the early days of the pandemic. Those who questioned the effectiveness of face masks were vilified by COVID cultists and banned by social media networks, while people who refused to wear them in public were humiliated and sometimes physically attacked.
The Lockdown files revealed that the Government were enforcing mask mandates because of its "very visible impact”, and not because they worked at preventing a virus spreading. Masks were never going to stop the spread because those wearing them weren't ill.
A massive international research collaboration earlier this year that analyzed several dozen rigorous studies focusing on “physical interventions” against COVID-19 and influenza found that face masks provide little to no protection against infection or illness rates.
This comes after the MHRA admitted that they hadn't been investigating the yellow card results even after stating that they had. Criminal charges are unlikely to follow as there appears to be no public accountability for any government department.
Despite study after study showing masks were useless at preventing the spread of a virus, they are being lined up to be inflicted on us again, this time as a protection against pollution, the latest non-event we're being conned over.
