Debacle Rocks Cochrane Collaboration's Face Mask Study Findings
The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews has long been considered “the gold standard” in research. After publishing an updated review of a total of 78 trials evaluating the effectiveness of masks in preventing respiratory virus transmission, they’ve met up with fierce criticism.It is also important to note that lockdowns have been implemented in many countries to slow the spread of the virus and prevent healthcare systems from becoming overwhelmed. While they may have short-term benefits, they can also have significant economic and social costs. It is crucial for policymakers to weigh the potential benefits and costs of lockdowns carefully and consider alternative approaches to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on public health and the economy.
