A major controversy throughout the pandemic was surrounding the
efficacy of face masks against the spread of COVID-19. However, a
recent study supports that masks may have done little, if anything at
all, to stop the spread of the virus.
"You have to look, I would love to think that masks did something. But
the reality is you've got to listen to the data," Makary said about the
study. "This review looked at 65 studies from 19 countries, including
the best randomized controlled trials out there. You can't ignore this
study. It was done by an organization that's considered the highest
evidence based body in all of medicine, and they set the standards in medicine."
