Masks DID STOP Covid Spread Says Study

The wearing of masks has helped, and will continue to help, stop the spread of the Coronavirus and any other type of Virus that might arise in the future. This is according to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

This has become one big worldwide fight. Do masks make a difference? Even if they do, do governments have the right to mandate the wearing of masks in public places?

America is on the verge of a second civil war due to this issue alone. People are fighting in the streets over mask mandates. Politicians and radio personalities alike are calling them an unconstitutional infringement of personal freedom. Some paranoid types are saying that the entire Covid crisis and all of the restrictions that came with it, mask mandates especially, is a hoax being implemented by people trying to end democracy.

Then there are all of the people who we see every day on the news and on Instagram making a scene in a store somewhere over mask rules. Even when the merchant has made the choice to require patrons to wear the masks, and not because it is mandated by law, people will go into these stores mask less anyway, just so that they can show off to the world that they will not be told what to do.

Some of these people actually believe that what they are doing is akin to the civil rights protestors in the 1960s who made a point of sitting down in public places where black people were not allowed to eat, or use the facilities.

Well, according to the study, wearing masks cut the spread of Covid by as much as 53%.

“This systematic review and meta analysis suggests that several personal protective and social measures, including handwashing, mask wearing, and physical distancing are associated with reductions in the incidence of Covid-19,” the researchers wrote in the British Medical Journal.

The authors also said that public health efforts to implement public health measures “should consider community health and sociocultural needs, and future research is needed to better understand the effectiveness of public health measures in the context of covid-19 vaccination.”
