You will be unable unable to find an empirical study that shows the effectiveness of masks. All of the studies showing their effectiveness were based around spraying water on mannequins. Meanwhile, here is an entire book of peer reviewed studies showing why they aren't doing anything:
But go ahead and keep virtue signaling.
-More than 150 comparative studies and articles on mask ineffectiveness and harms: https://brownstone.org/articles/more-than-150-comparative-studies-and-articles-on-mask-ineffectiveness-and-harms/
-A recent book written by Ian Miller compiling hundreds of charts from everywhere on the face of the planet showing that mask mandates never worked: https://www.amazon.ca/Unmasked-Global-Failure-COVID-Mandates/dp/1637583761
A few common sense reasons for why masks are ineffective against COVID-19:
-The virus is carried by aerosols, not by large water droplets, which can pass right through the fabric of most masks.
-Cloth and surgical masks, which constitute the vast majority of masks that people wear, have been proven by decades worth of studies and experience that they offer poor performance against aerosol viruses such as the one that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV2), both for the wearer and those around the wearer. These kinds of masks are designed for blocking fluids and viruses that transmit by large water droplets (such as by surgeons to protect themselves from splashes and to prevent their respiratory droplets from infecting an open wound). They're not designed to block viruses like SARS-CoV2 or influenza.
-Aerosol viruses such as SARS-CoV2 have also been proven to be able to pass in and out of the sides of any mask that is loose-fitted. That's why there's such as thing as an N-95 respirator, which is specifically designed to block aerosols, but which can't be used by the wider population because of their limited availability, and because it needs to be custom-fitted to the wearer.
-At the beginning of the pandemic, the WHO and CDC did not recommend widespread mask wearing because they were drawing from common medical knowledge derived from real world experience with past pandemics. So why did the recommendations on mask wearing suddenly change as this pandemic progressed? Because outside pressures such as reputation and politics got intertwined with the pandemic response, and medical experts needed to preserve their legitimacy. The public was fearful, and a visual aid was needed as a comfort and to reassure that everything was being done to try to slow the spread. In effect, it worked. This can be seen by how masks have become a political tool, and how people are viewed by whether or not they wear a mask. For those who promote their widespread use, those that refuse to wear one are seen as dumb, selfish and unable to care for the well-being of others. In contrast, those that wear one are seen as heroes. Of course, neither of these are true.
-There’s also the issue of what a mask is supposed to cover. Masks are designed to cover the nose and mouth, which are openings where the virus can pass through. But there are other openings, called the eyes and ears, which are usually left exposed. Furthermore, hands that touch surfaces which contain viruses are just as often unintentionally brought to the eyes and ears as they do to the nose and mouth.
-Most people don’t use masks correctly that they wouldn’t have made much of a difference even if they had worked. Just take a few minutes to observe a group of people using masks and you will spot numerous violations. Most people don’t have them fastened on properly, they’re still regularly touching their faces, when they take them on and off they’re leaving themselves exposed, and they store them haphazardly. Most times, these things are done unconsciously and by accident. Even medical practitioners sometimes make these mistakes without realizing it. It’s ironic, for example, to watch an interview of an expert that preaches the use of masks and see him make mistakes just in the time when he’s on the air.
-Further confirmation can be made by observing trends of reported cases in places that have enforced mandatory mask wearing. No statistical correlation can be made between the enforcement of a mask mandate and a decline in reported cases. In fact, in many districts, soon after a mask mandate was enforced, cases continued to climb exponentially.
-Experience with the Spanish Flu, a less contagious virus, proved that widespread mask wearing does nothing to prevent or slow the spread of a virus.
-Masks that may work in a controlled clinical setting are less likely to work in a real-world setting due to the variety of climates and situations that are encountered and can't be predicted.
-Masks can give a false sense of security due to their poor performance and can increase the risk to the more vulnerable who elevate them over isolation.
-Doctors can get complacent and use insufficient masks to deal with more severe diseases and chemicals.
-Since most people who contract COVID-19 are asymptomatic, there is a vast reservoir of hidden infections, and the virus is widespread, the logic adopted by medical experts was to mandate masks for everybody because we couldn't be sure who had the virus and who could pass it to others. The problem with this line of thinking was that it assumed either the entire population, or a large percentage of it, had the virus, which would mean that herd immunity was reached (the herd immunity threshold was achieved worldwide long ago, and the virus became endemic by late 2020). This defeated the purpose of masks being used as a tool to contain its spread.
-Anyone can disprove the effectiveness of masking by simply wearing one (or multiple) outside in cold weather and observing the streams of aerosol particles that carry the virus ejecting right through and around the fabric: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=\_fPfGU1MizY

I’ve read most of these studies and have an understanding of the microbiology at play. If you’re scientifically literate enough to critically read hard science white paper, dive in!
If you aren’t, no worry. Ian Miller has an incisively accessible book surveying the ineffectual policy of broad-scale masking across municipalities worldwide:
What do I propose APH do? Well, I’ve been pressing them behind the scenes for more than a year. I’ve urged the bureau to adopt a voluntary, focused-protection approach to any masking intervention.
By chance I came across this book available on Amazon , (and no doubt other suppliers if you are Bezos -hesitant):
The introduction to the book (actually I think written from a US perspective) says:
Masks have been a ubiquitous and oft-politicized aspect of the
COVID-19 pandemic. Years of painstakingly organized pre-pandemic
planning documents led public health experts to initially discourage the
use of masks, or even insinuate that they could lead to increased rates
Yet seemingly in a matter of days in spring 2020, leading
infectious disease scientists and organizations reversed their previous
positions and recommended masking as the key tool to slow the spread of
COVID and dramatically reduce infections.
Be aware that there is another book called "Unmasked" which is about Antifa terorist organisation , although thinking about it the covid facism and the antifa far left terrorism are maybe just two sides of the same coin.
The best evidence I've seen is the RCT you posted, and also this one: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7707213/. If you'd like a good review of the scientific literature, I'd read "unmasked" https://www.amazon.co.uk/Unmasked-Global-Failure-COVID-Mandates/dp/1637583761/
This looks like a good book. Recommended in Laura Dodsworth's latest mail shot:

В това отношение има сравнително лесен - и, ако се направи като хората, доста точен - начин да се провери дали въвеждането на задължителното носене на маски като противоепидемична мярка има влияние върху заразяването: да се види как се движи заразяването преди и след въвеждането на маски в едно население. С това се занимава от две години Иън Милър: https://ianmsc.substack.com/?utm_source=substack&utm_campaign=publication_embed&utm_medium=web, който издаде и книга: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1637583761/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_0ZXQV1JS0YAR4YB58C82
Милър хваща статистиките за инфекциите и/или хоспитализациите за един период от време, преди и след въвеждането на маски в различни американски щати и по света. Никъде не се вижда промяна в "кривата". (пример)
Тук може да има и други фактори. Но маските изглежда не оказват влияние.
