Why is the CDC Still Recommending Face Masks for Two Year-Olds? Because they’re Cult-owned morons

It’s fair to say that mask mandates in children were controversial. They were mandatory in schools across several European countries and German states for the entire 2020-2021 school year until autumn 2021.

In the U.K., secondary school children were required to wear masks only in communal areas, while primary school children were not required to mask up.

So, what does the evidence now say?

A recent systematic review on child mask mandates for COVID-19 concluded that “real-world effectiveness of child mask mandates against SARS-CoV-2 transmission or infection has not been demonstrated with high-quality evidence. The current body of scientific data does not support masking children for protection against COVID-19”.

The final analysis of the review consisted of 22 studies, none of which were randomised controlled trials. Out of the six observational studies that reported an association between child masking and lower infection rates, all had a critical or serious risk of biases. On the other hand, 16 other observational studies found no association between mask-wearing and infection or transmission.

The Cochrane (A122) Review on physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses also reports the lack of randomised evidence in children.

The review evidence is at odds with the BMJ stance in 2022 that considered masking in schools undervalued and de-emphasised. The BMJ‘s role as a fervent supporter of lockdowns, zero-Covid and masking of children calls into question its impartiality. Such a non-evidence-based approach has only served to support harmful positions against children.

However, the good news is that most children made pragmatic, reasoned judgements: headteachers reported that only one-third of secondary school children wore classroom masks in December 2021.
