Day 35 After Greenberg’s Guilty Plea
Read 33 tweets
Fauci's emails stating the obvious (masks in the community are useless) energised mask zealots. They go around and post this paper in comments, claiming "science evolved and masks now work".

This paper is dodgy, here is why:
1/
pnas.org/content/118/4/…
People who wrote it knew that CDC and its European equivalent found no solid evidence to support the usefulness of cloth masks.
CDC: "We found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks"
wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26…
ECDC:
ecdc.europa.eu/sites/default/…
2/
yet PNAS paper: "we recommend the adoption of public cloth mask wearing, ... in conjunction with existing hygiene, distancing, and contact tracing strategies".

That's problem #1: claim masks work while not able to show they do a thing as a measure in its own right
