Berlingske, Denmark’s oldest operating daily newspaper, published an article on Thursday titled, “Professor: Large Danish mask study rejected by three top journals” (translation from Google translate), which finally reveals the mystery of the disappearing Danish mask study.
According to the Danish newspaper @berlingske tre scientific journals have refused to publish the results of the first major scientific investigation the effect of use of masks during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The researchers behind a large and unique Danish study on the effect of wearing a mask even have great difficulty in getting their research results published,” wrote the Berlingske in the subtitle. “One of the participating professors in the study admits that the still secret research result can be perceived as ‘controversial’.”
The article reveals that, thus far, the study has been rejected by the Lancet, the New England Journal of Medicine, and the American Medical Association’s journal JAMA, three of the publications that have been posting much of the research on coronavirus.
The CDC, prior to changing its position on universal mask-wearing, had previously cited 10 randomized controlled trials that showed “no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks.” Now, the CDC and other elite institutions would have us believe that coronavirus is somehow different. The Danes were the first to actually study the effect of large-scale universal mask-wearing specifically against the spread of COVID-19.
While the professor did not divulge the results of the survey, he did reveal that it included 6,000 participants, with half of them wearing masks and half functioning as the control group. The study began in late April and was originally slated for publication in August.
The Berlingske article, authored by Lars Henrik Aagaard, also mentions the email correspondence between another of the researchers involved, Thomas Lars Benfield, and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson. Earlier this week, Berenson posted a copy of the email from Benfield replying to Berenson’s inquiry about the date of publication.
“As soon as a journal is brave enough to accept the paper,” replied Benfield.
The phobia among the political elites against subjecting mask-wearing mandates to the scientific method is not surprising. In July, Dr. Fauci told a group of Georgetown University students that he has no intention of conducting a controlled study in the U.S.
