. The timeline of UK government scientific adviser - mere unevidenced - beliefs about public use of face masks/coverings outside the home during a pandemic and the actual evidence followed by the turnaround on 11th May 2020.
Many thousands of lives have been lost. If masks work today to stop the spread of Covid19 then they also worked months ago!
.On & BEFORE 12 March (2 months ago!) @piersmorgan some of us with at least 1/2 a brain knew masks should have been compulsory in the UK - never mind recommended - as they finally are. And mass congregations banned earlier. But not this so-called "expert" https://t.co/toOhkBJubW https://t.co/GZwRZJQjFR— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 19, 2020
Please follow the video and newspaper timeline.
March 4th 2020, Chief Medical Officer, and top "expert" government adviser on the Covid19 pandemic, Chris Whitty, says the general public should not wear masks (Here) .
Maybe that is because Whitty oddly thinks face mask wearing will somehow uniquely turn us into idiots who won't also wash our hands or properly keep the correct social distance anymore?
Whitty is on record on 4th March saying that masks will not provide protection against the virus, but does not explain why that should be his thinking given that the virus is spread by coughed or sneezed water droplets. Logic suggests masks will reduce the volume and trajectory of infected droplets. Given that many spreaders and super spreaders are asymptomatic. Compulsory masks for all would prevent them spreading the virus. So what on Earth is Whitty talking about?
A supermyth is a myth that is compounded by further myths about that myth (see the supermyths website)
So here we see the beginning of the supermyth that masks don't work against Covid-19 - as others (on film below) such as Whitty's deputy, Jenny Harries, add to the masks don't work myth with another myth (to compound the original myth) that the general UK public wearing masks in public places start acting stupidly with them, doing things like wiping infected masks over surfaces. And further myths added by scientific advisers that mask wearers think masks are to sole solution to the pandemic.
11th March 2020 The Deputy Chief Medical Officer telling Boris and the rest of us the barking mad nonsense the public would wipe infected face masks over surfaces - but its OK for us all to attend mass public events in this pandemic! (Ref: https://twitter.com/i/status/1237760976482598913)

Read an excellent paper on why masks worn by the general public should have been made compulsory right from the start: Face masks for the public during the covid-19 crisis BMJ 2020; 369 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m1435 (Published 09 April 2020) See:https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1435
And, based on scientific experiment - here is another good article
By contrast, here is one beloved by anti-maskers based on people in a lab experiment only wearing a medical grade mask or a flimsy cotton mask coughing into a petri dish from a couple of inches away. Yet the authors of the article admit they did not measure either the volume or trajectory of infected water droplets by mask wearers versus non mask wearers. Moreover, where the hell do members of the general public obtain these flimsy disposable medical grade masks? And who thinks flimsy cotton masks are the number 1. choice of the public? For all they know a scarf wrapped around the face, a way thicker DIY anti dust mask or ski mask, anti pollution mask, works better. Anyway, it's well worth a read.

Telling question: If masks save lives today by reducing the spread of Covid19 then they worked earlier. So how many lives have been lost due to the anti-mask idiocy of the UK Govt and its so called expert scientists? "Um-um-er going forward" https://t.co/B9lLlL3PNi https://t.co/fUYtZx6hEJ
Given the face masks supermyth is now busted, having been created by Chris Whitty, Jonathan Van-Tam and Jenny Harries - why are face masks not yet compulsory - but their use is only advised? https://t.co/1msL162d1q— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 11, 2020
CONCLUSION: Videos and pictures speak thousands of words
If masks work on 11th May to reduce the spread of Covid19 and reduce the dreadful death toll then they worked 2 months ago when the three so called "experts" below were creating and spreading the deadly Mask Supermyth!
The so-called "experts" advising the UK Government made up a myth by telling them and the public a made-up story that if they wore masks they would only be doing so in the erroneous belief that a mask on the face renders the wearer immune from infection and so they would stop hand washing and social distancing.
The correct message should have been that because Covid19 is often spread by asymptomatic people breathing out, coughing and sneezing infected droplets in public and semi-public places that EVERYONE should wear a mask. Because: "when we all wear a mask we protect ourselves by the simultaneous act of protecting everyone else."
The only reason masks are not compulsory today in the UK (12th May 2020) during the pandemic could well be because the government of the UK would rather thousands more now die than admit they got the science, logic and commonsense on masks for the public wrong from the very start, and for months they callously refused to admit it, allowing thousands more unnecessary deaths and many more infections to occur.

We saw above that on march 4th 2020 The UK Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said not to wear a mask in public and semi public places. Now he has changes his mind. But its too little too late. If masks are saving lives now then they would have saved thousands earlier. Logically, Whitty's bad advice killed people then, didn't it? Or are masks suddenly effective at saving lives now but were not two months ago?
