    Giving a level of protection to you from other people and to other people from you. Did you actually read any of the studies? The scientific evidence of mask efficacy is overwhelming. Refuse to accept if if you like. Some people also refuse to believe the earth is round...

    This is all factual however doctors routinely saw patients without any protection for years despite all the science.

    Re: What's everyone's thoughts on the Covid-19 situation?

    I didn’t want to get into a fight about masks as that usually devolves. Even the cloth masks help to a degree. Viruses are about concentrations in the air. If you get a big enough concentration or “whiff” of the virus, your body may not be able to fight it but smaller concentrations may not get you sick. This is the same way only one sperm is required to get someone pregnant but the average ejaculate releases over 200 MILLION sperm and that often isn’t enough to get some pregnant.

    The other thing I’ll point out is that mask guidance is often accompanied by other guidance such as “social distancing”. Obviously that isn’t always possible but masks by themselves aren’t expected to be the sole protector. And some wearers of masks may act more cautiously because they have a mask or reminder on that makes them be more cautious of touching their face, staying more distant, etc. So masks might protect some wearers indirectly because it makes them more cognizant of protecting themselves.

    In the real world, some of these items help mitigate spread and some don’t. Unfortunately it has become masks or no masks.

    And fortunately spread has curtailed in the US currently. There is the concern that the cold weather will bring it back but we really don’t know. And that’s one of the concerns. With a greater vaccination percentage, we’d have more confidence that spread will continue to be controlled. With less vaccination rates, we’ll have to continue to be reactive knowing there’s a 3+ week delay between any action and the response to our actions.

    I have doubts that paper masks are all that effective. I've seen videos of people vaping through them and they don't look as if they stop much water vapor. I think it's more hype than substance.

    Correct. Surgical masks everyone is wearing Do nothing but disperse the virus upwards and actually into a person's eyes thus if they continue to touch the same mask vs disposing of them they will simply waft contaminants up into Thier own eyes which have no natural protection. Early on this is one of the reasons why conjunctivitis was a common indicator of infections.

    3ms own training materials note the lack of protection as well. They function like a Kleenex offering protection from spit talkers but otherwise minimal to no protection. Case numbers in the real world over the last 20 months show they don't work. Outbreaks still happen. Real world matters but hey, wear one if you want.

    Got my booster shot. Two days later I had a wasp sting me. Any guess which "shot" is haunting me more this week?

    Doesn't matter in this instance what network reported it but the fact that they completely overlooked that he had cancer, and then go on to cast more doubt on vaccines is a disgrace. It just adds to more doubt among the flat earthers and QAnon nutjobs.
