Microbiologist and Department of Microbiology and Clinical Immunology at the Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University Chairman Prof. Udi Qimron today responded to a Los Angeles Times headline covering the Danish study of face mask effectiveness that read: "The conclusion: masks are most effective if everyone wears them."

Dr. Qimron wrote: "The false propaganda is so prominent that any scientist/doctor/citizen who has a little integrity left must stand up to it."

Qimron continued: "Extensive research has shown that there is *no* significant difference between a group wearing masks and a group not wearing masks.

"The distorted newspaper headline is - 'Conclusion: masks are most effective if everyone wears them'.

"The side of darkness and falsehood always loses in the end!", concluded Professor Udi Qimron.
