Did masks really help in Fighting Covid-19? Some still figuring out  Whether wearing a mask can really prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus is still very doubtful. A recent study claims, “it doesn’t make no little difference”.

Keeping it short

  • A team recently studied the effectiveness of wearing face masks in reducing or spread of respiratory diseases. 
  • The study found that N95/ P2 respirators make little or no difference. 
  • Medical studies revealed, there is no clear difference between medical or surgical masks vs N95.

By Crox Media: Covid-19 had flipped the world upside down and its effects are still in motion. Several studies have been conducted to assess the different variants of the virus. While sanitizers and face masks were two mandates done by authorities expect to protect themselves from the spreading of the virus. 

But there are still questions about whether face masks were that effective or not. In fact, a recent study claimed that it probably “Makes no little difference”. As per a paper published in Cochrane Review titled physical interventions to interrupt or reduce the spread of respiratory viruses, there is still no difference between medical or surgical masks vs N95 in providing the care needed. 

The review of the authors concluded “Wearing masks in the community probably makes no little difference”

Over 78 studies were conducted on people across different countries like Denmark, Bangladesh, England, and Norway. The authors of the study concluded that there is uncertainty about the effects of face masks on Covid-19.
