Instead of advocating mask-wearing, which may help reduce viral transmission,...

Tara ja muut epidemiologit ovat alkaneet kannattaa maskien pitämistä julkisissa tiloissa.
Kuten myös seuraamani skeptikko Dr. Gorski:

AAPS: A crank medical “association” promotes COVID-19 disinformation
The AAPS is a far right-wing crank medical organization. Unsurprisingly, it’s all in with COVID-19 disinformation and pseudoscience.
...
In actuality, the evidence that masks have a significant effect in preventing the spread of COVID-19 has been accumulating for quite some time, although that hasn’t stopped cranks from promoting disinformation about masks.

Tuohon höhlään, rokotevastaiseenkin, "lääketiet. yhdistykseen" AAPS:ään kuului myös Trumpin 1. terveysministeri Tom Price. (Jonka kalliilla yksityissuihkareilla lentely nosti kohun ja johti eroamiseen).

"Accumulating":stä on linkki tähän:

Do face masks decrease the risk of COVID-19 transmission?
As wearing masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19 becomes a culture war issue, the evidence for whether they prevent transmission of COVID-19 remains contested. A new systematic review and meta-analysis provides the best evidence yet that social distancing and masks are highly effective at decreasing the risk of contracting coronavirus, while eye protection might also help, but it’s not a slam dunk.
...
And, yes, we need to wear our masks but, as Steve put it, continue to behave as though they don’t work very well. Eventually science will settle the issue, but until it does the balance of evidence supports routine wearing of masks.
