The following was emailed to me. It is self explanatory and highlights the dangers of blindly accepting any study relying on statistics. Correlation is not causation. In this case it would seem that they deliberately ignored the elephant in the living room.
I’m scouring through banks of research and data that you will never see on the news.
But you should know, there are lots of smart people out there committed to scientific integrity and exploration, despite public health leaders, government, big tech and media doing their best to mute anything beyond a tightly controlled narrative that serves a targeted purpose: vaccines.
One of the touchiest of subjects as a result of the pandemic response has been mask mandates.
You either praise them or loathe them, it seems there is no middle ground on the issue.
Health departments around the country have created billboards, advertisements, slogans etc. promoting the profound benefits of slowing the spread with mask (or double mask) wearing.
I found something that raised an eyebrow, to put it lightly.
One CDC study, released in February apparently proved the effectiveness of far reaching mass mask mandates.
