Indeed. Heneghan states that the study does not support mask wearing to prevent spread, when the study only assessed the protective effect of masks on wearers. Heneghan’s credibility has just fallen dramatically in my eyes having read that claim, to the level where he appears to be an activist, not the neutral observer he portrays himself as.Carl Henegan posts about the landmark Danish study into mask wearing... Facebook flags it as false information.
On this basis, how many articles saying masks 'save lives' have been flagged as false?
I find the way that those opposed to masks, who challenge studies quoted by those in favour of mask wearing for being insufficiently robustly scientific, then leap behind this study as proving their contentions very revealing.
This is a study with many weaknesses, that in no way meets the randomised control standard, yet is now being claimed to be proof that they do not work in the way that we are being advised to wear them.
