Now, a new scientific review suggests that widespread masking may have done little to nothing to curb the transmission of COVID-19.

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)."

 

It found that "wearing N95/P2 respirators probably makes little to no difference in how many people have confirmed flu (five studies; 8407 people); and may make little to no difference in how many people catch a flu-like illness (five studies; 8407 people), or respiratory illness (three studies; 7799 people)."

 

 

 

Keep your nose WARM and out of my business!

Now, a new study published Tuesday in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology details a previously unknown way that the immune system attacks viral intruders inside the nose—and finds it works better when it's warm.\

"There's never been a convincing reason why you have this very clear increase in viral infectivity in the cold months," said co-author Benjamin Bleier, a surgeon at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Eye and Ear, in a statement.

"This is the first quantitative and biologically plausible explanation that has been developed."

 

So...I hope the "Karens" on The View and elsewhere will calm down.
