(Natural News) Raw data from the infamous Bangladeshi mask mandate study has finally been released. And it shows that, contrary to what the mainstream media claimed all last year, wearing a mask does nothing to promote health or protect against disease.
It took them long enough, but the authors of the research finally came clean, revealing an absolute different of 20 symptomatic cases over eight weeks between mask wearers and non-mask wearers.
Since the sample size of participants was around 340,000 people, a difference of 20 cases is basically zero. In essence, there is no difference in health outcomes between people who wear a mask and those that do not wear a mask.
Back in September, Ben Recht from Principia Scientific International highlighted the fact that the study did not come with any raw data right out of the gate. This prevented him and anyone else who was interested from running the numbers for themselves.
“I also objected to the number of statistical regressions run to pull signals out of a very complex intervention,” he writes.
After said data was finally released, Recht ran his own calculations and came to the realization that the world was hoodwinked by the mask “science,” which does not actually exist.
“In the Bangladesh Mask RCT, there were nC=163,861 individuals from 300 villages in the control group,” Recht writes. “There were nT=178,322 individuals from 300 villages in the intervention group. The main end point of the study was whether their intervention reduced the number of individuals who both reported covid-like symptoms and tested seropositive at some point during the trial.”
“The number of such individuals appears nowhere in their paper, and one has to compute this from the data they kindly provided: There were iC=1,106 symptomatic individuals confirmed seropositive in the control group and iT=1,086 such individuals in the treatment group. The difference between the two groups was small: only 20 cases out of over 340,000 individuals over a span of 8 weeks.”
There is no legitimate science proving that masks protect against disease
Based on these numbers, it is difficult to imagine how anyone could come to the conclusion that “masks work,” and yet this is what was proclaimed from every major media outlet and political talking-head for months and months and months.
Recht also pointed out that the study was not blinded because it was not possible, seeing as how it was obvious just based on outward appearance who was wearing a mask and who was not wearing a mask.
“Moreover, individuals were only added to the study if they consented to allow the researchers to visit and survey their household,” Recht further explained. “There was a large differential between the control and treatment groups here, with 95 percent consenting in the treatment group but only 92 percent consenting in control.”
“This differential alone could wash away the difference in observed cases. Finally, symptomatic seropositivity is a crude measure of covid as the individuals could have been infected before the trial began.”
Despite an aggressive “educational program,” free masks, encouraged mask wearing, and constant surveillance, the only thing the Bangladesh mask study found is that masks do nothing to fight a plandemic.
The same goes for the “vaccines,” which have never been shown to do anything but spread more disease.
“The bottom line: masks cannot prevent the spread of a virus,” wrote one commenter at Principia Scientific International.
“I found this study when Covid first hit and have been telling everyone I talk to about the findings, but for the most part, most people have been Fauci-ed and deny the results,” wrote another.
