Recommended Posts

Infections set to pass 7 mln & 400,000 dead today. 134,882 new infections yesterday and 5,531 deaths. The rate of infection is increasing which means the deaths will follow in about 20 days. 
Wearing a mask, gloves and goggles not that difficult

A mask, gloves and goggles you joking! I did buy fingerless cycling gloves yesterday, I have RayBan aviator sunglasses (do they count) and I have masks which I never wear.

Face masks are like condoms...they only work if you use them properly. Would you use the same condom 20 times, without washing it? Would you pull the condom down to cover your balls as you ejaculate (chin mask)?

 

It's even worse with masks as when you exhale you push the mask away from your face. Due to the airflow currents your breath blows back onto the front of the mask, along with the virus. Then you constantly touch the front of the mask to adjust it, put on and off, convert to chin mask etc...so your hands are constantly contaminated.

 

If used properly, in enclosed spaces like taxis, supermarkets etc, then they are a good precautionary measure IMO...if used properly.

Finally WHO acting on what so many countries have been implementing to help control the virus.

 

Dr Mike Ryan in the press briefing yesterday:

 

"WHO has been saying for months now that we will support countries implementing broader mask use as part of a comprehensive strategy. The primary use of masks at community level are as a source of control, in other words they are mainly aimed as preventing one person giving the disease to someone else where that person is the source. Its more about protecting others if you happen to be infected."

 

 

Exactly. To be (nearly) fully protected, people need to wear FPP2 or FPP3 masks.

However, as there are asymptomatic people, standard masks are efficient at the collective level.

You said: ...so your hands are constantly contaminated.   Makes no difference if they are as the virus cannot penetrate your skin. The mask/glasses face shield keep you from touching your face and transfering the virus.  It  has been proven lately that it's not that easy to pick up the virus from a surface it's mostly transmitted by breathing in droplets/mini droplits from an infected person. If you keep washing hands you don't need to worry about tranfering virus  to face.

Food for thought: how did Japan with 126 million ppl, many old ones, keep infection/death rates so low?

Japanese wear facemasks, don't shake hands, hug.

How has Australia kept infection rates so low when almost nobody wears a mask?

"IF" these masks, contrary to what many state - do indeed prevent the spread of disease and are not just for "control" where are all the bio-hazard bins for disposal? 

When the fear mongering gets to stage 23 or however long they decide to carry it on will they be blaming it on the incorrect disposal of contaminated masks and gloves, surely we should be changing clothes and masks daily and burning them to prevent reinfection! 🙃

Just wear them home, take them off by the straps and soak and wash them with a little bleach added, dry, then they're ready to use again.

When the non mask, non glove, non protection people are laying in

bed with Covid 19, and wonder, Oh how did I catch this virus.

They will have lots of time to think and remember the friends

who had the virus but, no symptoms, and all the places they were

at recently. They can even dwell on the fact of their attitude, and

lack of smartness, but they won't as they are stable geniuses.

  It is not comfortable to wear a mask and goggles plus rubber gloves,

but it is nicer than being sick or Dead. Just a thought.

Geezer
