For those calling for President Trump to look to the experts for advice...

From NPR:   
Headline: Should We All Be Wearing Masks In Public? Health Experts Revisit The Question 


"We certainly don't have enough masks in health care," says William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University.  

Some research has shown that cotton T-shirt material and tea towels might help block respiratory droplets emitting from sick people, even if the effect is minimal.

 

"Homemade masks, shawls, scarves and anything that you can conjure up at home might well be a good idea," says Schaffner. "It's not clear that it's going to give a lot of protection, but every little bit of protection would help."

From The New Yorker:
Eric Garcetti, the mayor of Los Angeles.
But don’t go out and buy N95 or surgical masks. Medical workers in hospitals thick with covid-19 cases need those, and there are not enough even for them. For everyone else, a cloth mask, home-sewn or rigged up, or even a “tucked-in bandanna,” combined with social distancing, would at least be a start. “

IMO: I did not vote for him. but he is the current President of the USA.

Yes he says some really stupid things and has not made the correct decisions 100% of the time, but in the interest of fairness, I believe in giving credit where credit is due. 

 

His use of the word 'scarves' was suggested by an expert in the context of using an alternative method of protecting others while not depleting already limited resources. 


It would seem some here prefer to just complain, find fault or otherwise provide lazy uninformed comments instead of finding productive ways to support those combating this international crisis.

I fully support a discussion of all matters pertaining to this crisis, though commentary purely based in opinion and in direct contradiction to recognized fact-checking sites or the historical timeline are really not useful.

I would suggest we all look towards ways we can support others both here in Thailand and at home...

 


 

Why did you have to mention that you did not vote for him? Would it be embarrassing if people thought you voted for him?

 

And what's up with this comment?

 

Yes he says some really stupid things and has not made the correct decisions 100% of the time, but in the interest of fairness, I believe in giving credit where credit is due. 

 

You say he's wrong 100% of the time, but you give credit? That's very weird logic and what I expect from Trump-haters. He messes up your head and makes it hard to think clearly. What do they call it? "Trump derangement syndrome".

 

The man has some serious powers, that's for sure. He sends half the population crazy, and the other half adore him. LOL> I'm not even an American, but I like him. Finally, American politics is no longer boring. Most of your recent presidents would send anyone to sleep.

Maybe Trump belongs in a circus where he could entertain you and spare the nation

Most of the entertainment is from watching the Trump haters squirming.

Thank the Lord he is okay. At least he gets tested unlike some others.

If there were a lord... I suppose COVID-19 is just as good as a bolt of lightning

Actually, When SimpleMan555 said Trump didn't make correct decisions 100% of the time, it's clear he meant Trump wasn't always right. But of whom can't that be said. The question is how often is Trump wrong compared to others. And there he manages to be wrong a lot.

Good try, but I don't think that's it. Anyway, he said what he said, and if he was wrong, let the person who said it explain his error.

I agree. Since Trump supporters seem to turn on the same dime that Trump does when it comes to issues, I think what Trump does is toprovide people like you occasions for schadenfreude. Which is about as intellectually and morally as bankrupt an agenda as there can be. For their mascot, the Republicans should drop the elephant and adopt the troll.

LOL. Here you go again. Insult his supporters. (basket of deplorables?) As a non-citizen I cannot be a supporter, but I am a fan, and he's a big improvement on the best the rest of you have to offer. If you want to see real fools, and they are looking more foolish by the day, you don't have to look too far. I thought by now being a supporter of his opposition party would be embarrassing, but no, they keep hoping for miracles.

Oh please. 

I don't realize it.

I don't believe it and I wouldn't like it if I did believe it.

Great example of the link between followers of political cults of personality and religious dogma. Scary actually.

Why is it that at his briefings he is at the podium with half a dozen others and none wear masks.

More importantly, no social distancing. He thinks he's the leader of the nation. That's not leadership.
