WHAT DO THE ‘EXPERTS’ SAY ABOUT MASKING CHILDREN?

 

WHO and UNICEF specifically state “children aged 5 years and under should not be required to wear masks. This advice is based on the safety and overall interest of the child and the capacity to appropriately use a mask with minimal assistance.”

WHO’s advice on the use of masks for children pertaining to Covid:

  • WHO admits there is an “absence of strong scientific evidence” and they have very limited data on masking children. 
  • “One study suggested children between 5 and 11 years old were significantly less protected by mask wearing compared to adults.” 
  • “Children aged up to five years old should not wear masks. This advice is motivated by a ‘do no harm’ approach. Do no harm: the best interest, health and well-being of the child should be prioritized.

ARE CHILDREN LIKELY TO SPREAD OR CONTRACT COVID-19?

 A January 2021 study involving 100,000 students and staff says 99.968% of children do not get Covid-19 from school. There were only 32 reported cases of infection (.032%), and there were zero instances reported of a child infecting an adult.


An April/May 2020 Danish Mask study of 6,024 people determined asymptomatic people, especially children, do not have a substantial role in coronavirus spread. It also concluded medical masks were not effective protection against infection. The recommendation to wear masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50%.
