Epidemiologist tells CBS News that masking children in schools doesn’t work [VIDEO]

An epidemiologist told CBS News that they’ve found no evidence that masking children in schools helps stop the spread of COVID:

Dr. Tracey Beth Hoeg tells CBS News:

I should also mention that really, at this point in the pandemic, we do not have strong evidence that mask mandates of children in schools have actually been effective at curbing the spread of COVID-19 within the schools. So, we should really now look at the harms and the benefits of what we’re doing to children and ask if it’s worth continuing. Masking in schools, I and my co-authors feel that the benefits of masking, which we really haven’t been able to identify in schools, do not outweigh the harms, particularly to young children and English language learners, etc.

What???? She must be a pawn of Ron DeSatan! This is heresy and Hoeg should be banned from all social media platforms immediately!

I’m kidding of course, but I’m sure that’s not far from the reaction of the social media authoritarians. But who would’ve thunk that masking children has no measurable benefit. Oh, maybe Republican governors like DeSantis, Abbott and Youngkin.
