So much debate over whether or not we should be wearing masks in order to fight COVlD but multiple scientific studies over the past decade have already settled this question. Not only do medical masks not prevent the spread of the virus, but a 1995 study proves that wearing a cloth mask can put you at greater risk for infection.

FaceBook's so called “fact checkers” have struck again, claiming that my report on the science that proves that wearing facemasks, especially in non-medical settings does almost nothing to prevent the spread of a virus, is false… citing that it was based on old information. Now, I'm reporting on a new study created in conjunction with the World Health Organization and published by the CDC from less than 60 days ago that once again proves that there is no evidence that wearing face masks in public prevents the spread of flu-like viruses. I'm also going to show you why the Facebook fact-checking system cannot be trusted.

Link to the CDC published study. This study was conducted in preparation for the development of guidelines by the World Health Organization on the use of nonpharmaceutical interventions for pandemic influenza in nonmedical settings.

This study was supported by the World Health Organization.

    If you are wearing something like a doctor from the CDC wears you are fully protected. The masks that the public wear on tubes, trains, buses, shops etc are a total joke and will not protect you one iota. Even bigger joke and it has been conceded time after time by experts is masks on planes are useless too. You are breathing the same air for hours on end, then taking your silly little mask off to eat or drink at designated times. How is one protected? A total clown show and wearing off these masks- ironically mostly made in China, is pure politics to calm the masses and germophobes. Those in charge are pure idiots.

    Look at those in the UK Department of Transport who have made 'smart motorways' converting the hard shoulder to an extra lane. Break down or stop and you are dead as many have become statistics. Those same fools are in charge of this Covid crisis. God help us all!

      You can meet anybody in the pub inside or outside, yet can't families now can't meet other family members in a another home! You have to wear a mask in the cinema, plane but not in a restaurant. People have to wear a mask getting their hair cut in the hairdresser, but in a beauty salon not apparently, excepting when nails are manicured. Idiots are running the showing the in p.c UK!

      Should be more like Sweden's approach of letting the herd immunity run its course, but just ensure protection of elderly/sick in care homes or hospitals.

    This is about a comparison between two masks. Masks help prevent COVID, wear masks.

      This study was done on how people are wearing the masks.

      Do you see Doctors putting their mask on and off without disinfection their hands?
      Do you see Doctors putting their infected mask into their pockets and handbags?
      Do you see Doctors that are wearing a mask touching their mask and then other objects?
      Do you see Doctors using a mask multiple times?

      All this will only spread the virus even more and not less. And wearing a mask over and over again for a long period of time will also weaken your immune system and will make ever virus even more happy.

      All this is common sense. Not sure why people can't think for themselves anymore and only repeat the stuff they see in their TV Box without any real facts.
      Well i guess we already live in a Zombie world.

        Dunno where you live in but here in Italy, for the duration of the lockdown if you had to go out you did so with a mask and hand sanitizer or gloves.

        Wearing masks does not help spread covid faster, people that are confirmed having covid stay quarantined, everyone else that goes out doesn't put a mask to stop covid from getting in but from getting out, that means if you're not sick but still carry covid, it doesn't spread through all the space around you.

        Masks don't weaken immune systems that's bullshit, there are cases where it might but that's because of other conditions.

        Common sense is looking at data from countries that had a lockdown in place and mandatory masks and then look at the data from USA.

        Clearly masks and quarantine work.

          I'm not in Italy but i see how people are using their mask in Belgium, France and German.
          I see no one disinfecting anything. it's like watching a clown show. Only a few shops have something outside to disinfect the hands and a lot of people don't even use it. And the funny thing is you are forced to use a shopping cart that isn't even disinfect, very smart.

          And if you breathe in half or your toxic air again and again for a long period of time then this will in the long run weaken your immune system.
          I know someone that works in an environment where they have a lot of dust in some areas. And it is forbidden to use a mask without an air connection if they have to work for more than 6 hours in 3 days in that environment.

            Your own breath isn't toxic, the amount of co2 you produce and inhale back isn't high enough to cause damage, also masks are not supposed to be tightly secured to your face. Why would people literally walk with plastic bags on their head.

            The masks leave enough space for air to get in but to reduce the exhalation around you.

            A dusty environment is different from why we wear masks for covid.

            The masks used to work in dusty areas need to protect you from dust getting in so you need an air connection since breathing in the dust would be just as bad as not breathing in oxygen.

            The masks used to reduce the spread of covid just reduce the area in which you exhale, they are supposed to be worn by people that have the virus, but since you can't test everyone and not everyone sick gets tested, because some people are asymptomatic, its better to have everyone wear them.

              I had also a mask on and even i noticed that i had to breath a lot faster to get more fresh air.

              And you don't need a mask connected to fresh air if you working in a dusty environment. In Germany you don't need to wear any mask by law for the same work as a friend is doing in Belgium.

              And you said it yourself a normal mask is not airtight. So it will only really help a little bit when people cough or sneeze ...
              There is a funny saying: A mask protects you from COVID-19 like a pair of pants will hold back a fart.
