(Zero Hedge) Researchers in Denmark have just published a revolutionary new study which purports to offer more conclusive evidence that wearing masks actually does little to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Though it’s certainly not the first study to suggest that masks do little to help – and, to be fair, there’s plenty of research to suggest the opposite (science can sometimes be confusing) – a monthslong, nationwide study that involved thousands of Danes from a diverse range of backgrounds (in case you were curious) showed that roughly the same percentage of people were infected in the mask group as the no-mask group.
According to the report, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the “primary outcome” (i.e. infection with COVID-19) occurred in 1.8% of people in the mask group, and 2.1% of people in the control group.
“Observational evidence suggests that mask wearing mitigates SARS-CoV-2 transmission, but whether this observed association arises because masks protect uninfected wearers (protective effect) or because transmission is reduced from infected mask wearers (source control) is uncertain. Here, we report a randomized controlled trial (20) that assessed whether a recommendation to wear a surgical mask when outside the home among others reduced wearers’ risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection in a setting where public health measures were in effect but community mask wearing was uncommon and not recommended,” the researchers began.
