A Scots hairdresser has told customers they don't have to wear a face covering as he believes that the coronavirus pandemic is a ‘hoax’.

Brent Burnett, who is the owner of Glenwood Salon in Glenrothes, Fife, has shared a number of conspiracy theories that claim to refute the existence of Covid-19 over social media.

He claims to our sister title Edinburgh Live that the global outbreak of coronavirus is to cover up  the rollout of 5G and is being used to create divisions in society.

If you’re in any of these demographics, you’re less likely to wear a face mask in public

  If you’re in any of these demographics, you’re less likely to wear a face mask in public A new study has found people living in the north of England are the least likely to wear a face covering in public. YouGov figures – collated by the Financial Times – listed a series of demographics that show who is most and least likely to wear face masks to protect against the spread of coronavirus. Northerners lead in the stats, being almost 5 per cent less likely than the national average to wear a face mask, while the working class, people aged 25 to 49, people living in the Midlands/Wales, Conservatives, Leave-voters, men, southerners (excluding London) and people aged 50 to 64 all fall below average too.

A Facebook post from the salon says that staff will not be wearing face covering inside the premises.

Customers have also been told that wearing them is not mandatory by the salon, despite Scottish Government laws saying otherwise.

Salon staff and customers must wear a face covering and could face a fixed penalty notice from Police Scotland if the law is found to be broken.

When asked about his stance on face coverings, Burnett referred to an internet conspiracy theory about a supposed committee founded by the British aristocracy which controls politics, finance and the media.

He said: “Take me to court. Coronavirus is a cover up for the 5g rollout. What kind of society are we living in when money is all that matters? We think we are free but will never be free. The banker always wins as they say.

Great Britain: Mandatory mask in shops from July 24

"What’s the alternative? All rushing out to get vaccinations every so often. Which haven’t even had enough time for clinical trials. I won’t be getting one that’s for sure Mr Gates."

He continued: "Ask yourself why the Eskimos have never heard of cancer. Or how about putting mercury in our mouths at the dentist. Does no one know it’s toxic? Your brain is connected by loads of nerves to your teeth. Metal is poison. Alzheimer’s is caused by amalgam fillings. What kind of society are we living in?”

"Also no mention of the alien craft found in USA last night. Is that because our big news is the queen steeping down?"

Burnett also said if he was fined for contravening coronavirus regulations he would simply forward them to this committee.

When asked if he thought his theory might offend people who have lost loved ones to the virus, Burnett said this was the aim of the 'inventors' of the coronavirus to increase division.

The Facebook post from the salon read: “Thank you to all our clients that have come to the salon and followed the guidelines. We are going to be changing things a little.

"Glenwood Salon believe that Mask should be voluntary and not mandatory so as of tomorrow the staff will not be wearing masks. It is entirely up to the individual if they wish to wear one.

"We will of course still be sterilising all equipment and cleaning and sanitising after every client."

Wearing face masks 'does not lead to false sense of security' .
Wearing face masks in public will not make people feel a false sense of security against Covid-19, a new study has found. In the early days of the global pandemic, the World Health Organization had warned that wearing face coverings could "create a false sense of security that can lead to neglecting other essential measures such as hand hygiene practices", which is also called risk compensation. However, the study from researchers at University of Cambridge and King's College London dismissed the concerns, and insisted that face masks should be mandatory across the world in an effort to stem further coronavirus infections.
