New Study Confirms That Masks Did Next-To-Nothing (Or Nothing) to Curb the Spread of Covid

Weird that the Face Doilies turned out to just be decoration.

The review, titled "Physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses," was led by 12 researchers from esteemed universities around the world.

Published by Cochrane Library, the review dug into the findings of 78 randomized controlled trials to determine whether "physical interventions" -- including face masks and hand-washing -- lessened the spread of respiratory viruses.

When comparing the use of medical/surgical masks to wearing no masks, the review found that "wearing a mask may make little to no difference in how many people caught a flu-like illness/COVID-like illness (nine studies; 276,917 people); and probably makes little or no difference in how many people have flu/COVID confirmed by a laboratory test (six studies; 13,919 people)."

They also found that N95 masks, which supposedly are the "masks that work," also did not work.

You might think that based on the science which has repeatedly shown that masks do not stop or even slow the spread of covid, the government, being, it claims, "science-based," would change its masking guidance to stop demanding that children be masked all day long.

You might think that certainly they would change the guidance as regards autistic children, who already have difficulty reading people's faces and also tend to be sensitive to masks.

Of course, you actually think none of these things, because you know that everything the government does is to appease left-leaning hysterical Suburban Karens, and that left-leaning hysterical Surburban Karens do not demand that we all continue wearing masks due to science, but due to their grubby, nasty, bullying religion.

And so Head Start continues demanding that four year olds, including four year old autistic kids, wear this Religious Garb in government schools.

Yep. Here we are in February 2023 and the Head Start program is still doing its best to help "educators" inflict emotional damage on children. They are literally instructing people on how best to inflict a form of torture on autistic preschoolers in order to accomplish exactly nothing.


Trying to make [autistic kids observe strict full-day masking] is cruel. If there genuinely are teachers involved in these programs who have immune deficiencies they don't belong there now and didn't even before COVID.

Ding ding ding ding ding.

Have you noticed that we are now in the world in which the healthy and mentally sane are demanded to behave as if we were those with medical and mental health problems? Some people are immunocompromised. Therefore, all of the healthy people must put on a Religious Garb without any medical usefulness to make the immunocompromised "feel safer."

We are men and women. But we must pretend that we don't know what "men" and "women" are, and must use pronouns to pretend our sex is ambiguous and the rest of us pretend that sex is a "social construct" so that the mentally ill can "feel seen" and "feel safe" and "feel accepted."

What happened to the old system in which the physically disabled and mentally ill were prescribed courses of treatment, rather than the entire world being prescribed the intervention of pretending to spare people who are unwell from feeling like they're unwell?

Speaking of autism: Possibly some good news there, though in very very early studies.

Just mouse models so far, but possibly... a cheap cure for autism?


Scientists 'CURE autism' in mice using $3 epilepsy drug -- in potential breakthrough

Researchers switched off MYT1L in mice and human nerve cells in the lab

Mice without MYT1L had brain abnormalities such as a thinner cerebral cortex

They also displayed autistic behavior including social deficits and hyperactivity

The first clinical studies in humans are in the early planning phase
