Pandemic Polemic: Prof. Carl Heneghan Says There’s Still ‘No Evidence’ Masking Kids in Schools Works
Professor Carl Heneghan, Director of The Centre for Evidence Based Medicine (CEBM) at Oxford University, joined talkRADIO host Julia Hartley-Brewer’s breakfast show.
Prof. Heneghan said there’s still “no evidence” to reduce the uncertainty of whether masking kids in schools works or not, adding:
“In the absence of evidence, if you think they should be wearing them, go and talk to some children. That’s what I’ve done. And said: ‘What’s the reality on the ground? What’s it like for you in class? How does it feel?’ And I can tell you, they hate them. They find it really difficult.”
Heneghan’s latest comments on masking kids in schools could also serve as a powerful pandemic polemic – for those seeking to better understand, at its core, the problematic policies and flawed decision-making frameworks of governments all over world that have driven people into destructive lockdowns, vaccine mandates for students, and other draconian measures, all in the name of a virus:
“It comes back to, at the end of the day, common sense […] I think again the government should start to look cooly and calmly at the data. And then think, where does it have an evidence base and where doesn’t it.”
“If it’s lacking, then you have to [sic] on the side of not intervening. Now one of the key problems we got when we intervene, is it becomes incredibly difficult to rollback interventions. And that’s what we’re seeing. And that’s the great problem now. ‘Just-in-case’ approach…that’s not how to perform in health care.” Watch:

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
