The vaccines had no proven efficacy and the patients were given the standard of care, as is done in every trial when you're trying to test for efficacy and safety. And for all we know, some horrible adverse events could have been detected when given in a large scale trial, which would mean you would be both giving something to everyone that has unknown efficacy and could harm a bunch of people.We had people who died in the control arms for the vaccines from COVID, and that was ethical. Yet you think asking someone to wear or not wear a mask or controlling the type of mask they wear is crossing a ethical line?
Masks don't face those same barriers.
