OCLA asks WHO to retract recommendation advising use of face masks in general population

Published July 1, 2020

OCLAOCLA has sent a letter to the Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, asking him to retract the WHO’s recommendation advising the use of face masks in the general population to prevent COVID-19 transmission. We also sent a copy of the letter to MPs, Ontario MPPs, provincial Premiers, and informed the media.

The letter criticizes the lack of a valid scientific basis for the WHO’s recommendation and expresses OCLA’s concerns about serious harms to individuals and societies stemming from the recommendation and from government impositions of face masks on the general public.

The letter can be read at the links here (PDF file): http://ocla.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/2020-06-21-Letter-OCLA-to-WHO-DG.pdf or here (Blog post): http://ocla.ca/ocla-letter-who/

Please share the letter widely with your contacts, the media, and your elected representatives.

Yours truly,

Joseph Hickey, PhD
