A recent peer-reviewed study released by Standford and posted on the National Center for Biotechnological Information government website has stated that face masks have zero chance of preventing the spread of Covid-19.
Steve Cortes, a member of Donald Trump’s presidential campaigns, had his twitter account suspended for posting it, though his account has now been restored.
The main conclusion was that “data suggests both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such as SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. […] Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. […] Long-term consequences of wearing a facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death.”
The study or “medical hypothesis” was written by Dr. Baruch Vainshelboim of the Cardiology Division, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System at Stanford University.
