The secondary outcomes were filtering capacity of masks and viral load reduction.

When her Danish colleagues first suggested distributing protective cloth face masks to individuals in Guinea-Bissau to stem the spread from the coronavirus, Christine Benn wasn’t so sure. We found minimal-certainty evidence that wearing a face mask is owned by decreased risk of primary infection in RCTs along with observational studies. However, the wide confidence intervals affected the statistical significance of the overall estimate. It was not possible to determine the certainty of evidence about mortality, filtering capacity and R0 whereas viral load was judged to get of suprisingly low quality. Our findings indicate (i) an overall consensus toward a decrease
