WHO and UNICEF specifically state “children aged 5 years and under should not be
required to wear masks. This advice is based on the safety and overall interest of the child
and the capacity to appropriately use a mask with minimal assistance.”
WHO admits there is an “absence of strong scientific evidence” and they have very limited
data on masking children.
“One study suggested children between 5 and 11 years old were significantly less protected
by mask wearing compared to adults.”
“Children aged up to five years old should not wear masks. This advice is motivated by a ‘do
no harm’ approach. Do no harm: the best interest, health and well-being of the child should
ARE CHILDREN LIKELY TO SPREAD OR CONTRACT COVID-19?
A January 2021 study involving 100,000 students and staff says 99.968% of children do not get
Covid-19 from school. There were only 32 reported cases of infection (.032%), and there were
zero instances reported of a child infecting an adult.
An April/May 2020 Danish Mask study of 6,024 people determined asymptomatic people,
especially children, do not have a substantial role in coronavirus spread. It also concluded
medical masks were not effective protection against infection. The recommendation to wear
masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection
rate among wearers by more than 50%.
