Retract The Lancet’s (and WHO funded) published study on mask wearing – Criticism of “Physical distancing, face masks, and eye protection to prevent person-to-person transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and Covid-19: a systematic review and meta-analyses”
I read and analyzed each of the 29 studies referenced by the Lancet on the topic of mask wearing (I ignored the studies that focused on physical distancing and eye protection). What I found was shocking. In short, the Lancet meta-study should properly be considered junk science based on junk science that even if true, has no relevance to widespread community mask wearing. Based on my own analysis, I believe the Lancet study should be retracted.
