Brett Sutton is the crappiest “health officer” in the world. The CRIMINALLY deficient paper to justify mandatory masks in Victoria
I was aware of the useless paper cited by Sutton to justify his mandatory masks. Sharing a comment received via email.
Have you seen this article.
According to news.com.au, the VIC Department of Health directed them to a paper published in July this year by the Burnet Institute – as justification for the VIC mask mandate.
I’m reading through the study now. I’m a little shocked. The methodology included using images from the digital archive of The Age, to measure mask-wearing behaviours!

Strong evidence? really?
The study was published in PLOS one. Arguably a good journal with a high impact factor.
I’m seeing multiple typos as I read….
My main question to the researchers…….how do you explain the late 2021 explosion in cases……..?
I shudder to think what other ‘evidence’ the Vic government used for their policy decisions……
