And of 16 quantitative meta-analyses, half showed weak evidence of mask effectiveness while the others “were equivocal or critical as to whether evidence supports a public recommendation of masks,” they added.

But nevermind, its a status symbol! Its the new aids ribbon, the lapel pin, it is the ultimate in virtue signaling! IT WILL NEVER GO AWAY!
