More: Can following “the science” be hazardous to your health?

Now, the WHO does a u-turn on masks.
=============

Longstanding,  the “gold standard” WHO advised  against wearing masks, saying:

There isn’t enough medical evidence to support members of the public wearing a mask, unless they were sick or around people with the coronavirus. WebMD

Even the CDC bailed on this one earlier, so you had to see it coming…

Here’s the skinny…

=============

On June 6 (<= just 4 days ago), the WHO spun another u-turn:

The World Health Organization has changed its stance on wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

People over 60 and people with underlying medical conditions should wear a medical-grade mask when they’re in public and cannot socially distance.

The general public should wear a 3-layer fabric mask in those situations. WebMD

The WHO didn’t apologize to the families of people who took their original advice, got infected and died.

=============

This is another example of why I predictably cringe whenever I hear the phrase “follow the science and the data”.

When I do, I  keep bumping into myself.
