1/ From 2008-2020, 12 NEGATIVE randomized controlled trials on masking, conducted among ~18K persons, worldwide, have ESTABLISHED that masking does NOT reduce community respiratory virus transmission (thread with refs)
2/ Ten NEGATIVE studies, focusing primarily on influenza, 2008 to 2016, were “meta-analyzed” (their data “pooled”), here wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26…
3/ Independently validating these pooled findings are the results from a single large randomized controlled trial of masking among another cohort of Hajj pilgrims whose enrollment (n=6338) equaled the sum enrollment of all the 10 studies in the May, 2020 “meta-analysis.”

1/ UK-HART Group: "Lockdowns were explicitly not recommended even for severe respiratory viral outbreaks in all pandemic planning prior to 2020, including those endorsed by the WHO and the Department of Health"

1/Courageous, wise UK Mom: “WHY I’M REFUSING TO SEND MY KID TO SCHOOL WITH A FACE MASK.” “…the scientific evidence.. is very weak. I believe the decision to ask kids to wear masks is largely political”
2/ “I’ve read a lot of studies and I’m convinced that the evidence for masks in schools is weak. [Oxford Dr.] Carl Heneghan, said it's low-quality observational evidence based on small observational studies, or laboratory studies, or modelling studies” cebm.net/covid-19/maski…
