The university of Witten/Herdecke have set up an online registry where parents/carers, doctors and teachers can enter their observations of the effects of masks on children. This was set up due to the fact that so many parents and professionals working with children have reported that masks are impacting children negatively in various ways.
Within a week of being set up, 20,353 people had used this site and had entered data of 25,950 children, showing the urgent need for more platforms and studies in this area. It has also been observed that even though it is now mandatory in many schools for children to wear masks, often for many hours on end, there are no manufacturer or independent studies proving the safety of prolonged use of masks on children/adolescents.
