Another study concludes that cloth facemasks are all but useless when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID. The study, conducted by the University of Bristol in England, discovered that cloth facemasks only stopped 10% of the COVID virus.
Yes, this meant 90% of the coronaviruses were getting through.
The researchers came to this conclusion after conducting airflow studies of facemasks.
The study found that the surgical facemasks, N95s, were much more effective, stopping 95% of the COVID virus.
University of Waterloo study concludes cloth facemasks are all but useless
The results were similar to a Canadian study conducted by the University of Waterloo. It similarly found that popular blue cloth facemasks only stopped 10% of the COVID virus, but concluded that N95s only stopped 50% of the virus. They attributed the problem to gaps between the facemask and the face. READ: Blue face masks are only 10% effective in preventing COVID infection, new study finds
Danish facemask study in 2020
Of course, we already knew that cloth facemasks were useless by the fall of 2020 after a major Danish study concluded that facemasks basically made no difference when it comes to stopping the spread of COVID.
However, by that time the COVID pandemic had become political, and it was no longer about science, but more about control and political correctness.
That study was quickly condemned or ignored by the political and media elite, and Facebook stepped up and even censored the study conducted by Oxford researchers.
