Mask study FAIL
This is the audio of the IDSA presentation I referred to here.
I'm pretty sure someone has presented data from the same study at ICAAC and IDSA before....but I'm not sure if anyone has ever done so and also changed their conclusion 180 degrees....and in the process influenced a major IOM report that led to a misguided national recommendation for infection prevention that resulted in nationwide shortages of personal protective equipment.
How can a single study do so much damage before undergoing peer review? Yikes.
