STUDY: Masks make no significant difference

A new study indicates there is no statistically significant difference when it comes to wearing a mask or not outside the home to prevent Covid-19 spread.

According to the study, 1.8% of participants with masks got coronavirus. That compares to 2.1% of participants without masks.

A recommendation to wear a surgical mask when outside the home among others did not reduce, at conventional levels of statistical significance, incident SARS-CoV-2 infection compared with no mask recommendation. ACPJOURNALS Study

The study is from the Annals of Internal Medicine. It is titled:

"Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers, A Randomized, Controlled Trial."
