Covid-19: "Hi-So" face shields on their own are pointless, says leading Thai public health official

I went into Big C a couple of days ago.

The cashiers have been issued with face masks and also face shields. I noticed three out of the four cashiers had their face shields pushed up above their faces, on top of their heads. Pretty pointless having them.

 

 

Yes, most cashiers wear the shield as a visor...

They are pretty effective in some pubs to keep patrons apart.

Directly copy/paste from the WHO:

"f you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19."

 

... makes me wonder why everybody is shouting out about a Pandemic that is only

a Pandemic because the WHO said so [the numbers clearly show it is not a Pandemic !]

but nobody follows their advice ?

There is also guidance on specific situations such as dense populations, crowded buses, crowds, etc.

Then why are health workers in US and UK wearing them.

they can stop infections that can enter via the eyes,but what

do I know,compared to Thai health spokesman.

regards Worgeordie

Then why are they dying by the thousands everyday for months in both US and UK? Maybe the good Thai doctor actually knows a little more compared to you?

As much as I like those, one of the factors causing transmission is loud speaking or singing, obviously because the virus gets aerosolized better when you're piping at 130dB. It would just fly over the partitions.

Yeah, only 6,273,402 confirmed, 375,683 dead in nearly all countries.

I guess it'll have to be in the billions or trillions to be a legit pandemic.

to put it all into perspective. 

 

that is not even 3 full days of normal death on this planet. on average it is around 150k people that die every single day - give or take. 

 

so.

650.000 people die on the FLU every year, check CDC

 

so, yes, no pandemic

Completely incorrect. 

 

the CDC states show as many as 56,000 people die a year from Flu. 

 

So yes Covid is very much a Pandemic

It’s a splash guard. Unless people are going around coughing and sneezing in other people’s faces, your regular face mask is fine. 

But it's not Hi-so though.. 😏

How long are you willing to wear a mask for?

1 year, 5 years, forever??

They will have to or the hypocrisy of the wearing of them to protect others is utter B S ! 

Save the vulnerable from seasonal flu which wipes out more folk in Thailand than Co Vid 19 has. Go one further shut down the airports to international flights to save Thailand the spread of seasonal flu from outsiders.

Dr Fauci has said on tv they are acceptable as a replacement for a face mask as long as they go below the chin and back to just in front of the ears and this a man who knows what he is talking about .

The masks only help when an infected person sprays from nose/ mouth. 0 effect inhibiting  filtering oral transfer to healthy person.

I know, so saw it on tv.
