Why don't you wear your stupid mask and not tell others what to do?

 

Who are you?

Apparently I'm the voice of reason.

Again the CLOTH masks DO NOT block the virus from you. They DO block your own spray which might be infected whether you know your status, have symptoms, or not. How hard is it for people to get that?

Obviously you're not aware that studies have shown that cloth masks increase the risk of infection:

 

"The physical properties of a cloth mask, reuse, the frequency and effectiveness of cleaning, and increased moisture retention, may potentially increase the infection risk for HCWs. The virus may survive on the surface of the facemasks,29 and modelling studies have quantified the contamination levels of masks.30 Self-contamination through repeated use and improper doffing is possible. For example, a contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogen from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer. We also showed that filtration was extremely poor (almost 0%) for the cloth masks. Observations during SARS suggested double-masking and other practices increased the risk of infection because of moisture, liquid diffusion and pathogen retention.31 These effects may be associated with cloth masks."

Here is another thing about wearing masks everywhere.

 

I have been wearing a mask in places like supermarkets etc.  This is more to avoid upsetting people who panic when they see someone not wearing a mask than in the hope it  will do any good. Today I thought I would wear one on my 15 minute walk to the supermarket; despite the fact that I know that the virus is not airbourne and wearing one on the street is a waste of time. 

 

The thing is I worked up a sweat and by the time I got to the supermarket my mask was sopping wet. So I ended up wearing a useless mask in the supermarket.

 

For those who advocate mask wearing - fair enough; you are entitled to your opinion.  However, there needs to be a balance and reasonableness about when and where to to wear a mask.

Worked up a sweat in a 15 minute walk, Mask was sopping wet?

Maybe need to get a bit fitter. 
You can always change the mask before you enter.

...many farangs walking around pattaya and the supermarkets without them'?

 

After where their faces had been, maybe they think they are immune, and a mask is an unnecessary obstruction?

Same farangs go down on gogo girls right at the stage. Think they care about a teeny weeny baby corona when there's HIV to be had?

If it makes them happy. My chance of getting infected by air is probabably 0 to nought, my chances of getting infected by touch, very high.

How would you reckon your chances of touching your mouth or nose with your hands with and without a mask? Or reminding others to keep distance ( Mine is very high since I'm ugly as sin )?

 

Those are the main benefits of a loose mask. I liked the Trumpism for it.. scarf. Yeah anything creating a barrier between paws and nostrils and scaring others works fine.

I am quite fit thank you. Always been a heavy sweater - good thing stops body overheating.

 

Back to the masks - believe me it takes very little sweat to soak a mask as I found out.  Masks are already in short supply so why over use when not necessary?

In Germany 500,000 people are tested every week. No major country in the world is more successful than Germany in fighting the virus.

 

Try and educate yourself on the facts.

Germany just passed 2% mortality rate, while South Korea remains below 2%, with 1/10th the number of infected cases and deaths. I called this last week, around the time you were claiming Germany is some kind of evidence masks don't help.

 

Time for you to accept the fact that no, Germany isn't seeing the best outcomes, and that yes, the countries seeing the best outcomes are wearing masks. Does that demonstrate causality? No, but in the absence of robust clinical data, correlations should be good enough for preventative steps that have minimal downside.
