What you're saying is objectively false. They were literally telling people not to get masks because they were ineffective. Pic related is one example, but I can provide you literally dozens of other sources if you'd like.
You are either intentionally misrepresenting facts because you are an establishment bootlicker, in which case you are a LIAR, or you are genuinely talking out of your ass and don't know what you're talking about, in which case, you're a MISINFORMED ASSHOLE.
Also, I actually study mathematical biology and population dynamics as an applied mathematics grad student. Almost everyone in my field was raising alarms back in January 2020, and probably every major university was already actively researching COVID by the end of January, and politicians and journalists were well informed, but they CHOSE not to address the issue in order to avoid hysteria and panic. In fact, iIRC there was even evidence of insider trading going on, because politicians and elites knew that it was going to become a pandemic and they were trying to downplay the issue. And I'm sure if me and my uni were aware in early January, the military and the Chinese government probably knew in December or even November. It's already been confirmed that it was circulating, undetected, in early fall 2019.
