Study: Masks' Protection Against Catching Covid is "Statistically Insignificant"

Gee that's weird, Professor AllahPundit and Dr. Guy P. Benson, Ph.D., M.D., assured me that All Virtuous People Wear Masks Because Science.

I wonder how the professors of Twitter Science are taking this news.

I checked Hot Air. Professor AllahPundit loves grabbing up the grabbiest, easiest stories he finds on Twitter and claiming them. (And making his coworkers search harder for stories. I wonder how they feel about that.)

But strangely, he leaves this grabby, easy story alone. It falls to Jazz Shaw to write it up.

Gee, I wonder why Professor AllahPundit skips some kinds of stories, like that there was no Russian colluision.

octors in Denmark have just released the results of what’s being described as a first of its kind study on the effectiveness of wearing face masks. Their conclusions are going to cause a lot of people in the pro-mandate camp plenty of consternation. They determined that while a cloth mask can definitely reduce transmissions from infected people to others, any protection provided by them to the uninfected is "statistically insignificant."

No one tell Professor AllahPundit and Dr. Guy P. Benson, Ph.D., M.D., that there are zero controlled studies demonstrating that lockdowns reduced covid transmission significantly, either!

New study: Lockdowns & masks are useless and might even increase COVID-19 spread

Even a Military-Enforced Quarantine Can't Stop the Virus, Study Reveals

Nothing worked. They got the virus, more got the virus. They did everything and more to try to stop it from infiltrating. Nothing worked.

And in a recent piece I read, they have no idea, yet, how it spreads. 10% maybe airports, 5% elderly homes, 5% medical community... 80%? uknown

they are guessing

But keep in mind: Sometimes, if you Trust the Science (TM), you're actually Killing Grandma.

So sometimes you have to say "To Hell With This Whore "Science.""
