The logic of masking

As posts #8 & 12 state:

The OP is ignoring asymptomatic carriers who can infect others. 

 

It is thinking like the OP that could Make the Virus Great Again. 

 

The statement that there are no infected people in Thailand is brash, unsupportable , and naive, not to mention being inflammatory to logical and informed thinkers. 

 

Please be informed and make your own reasoned decisions rather than being thoughtlessly swayed by posts like the OP's based on false logic. 

Would point out posting 'fake COVID scares' is punishable by prison in Thailand.

Just curious, so if in the last 35 days there's been asymptomatic carriers, where are the people that are showing signs of being infected?  Surely they can't all be asymptomatic.

A snake may not strike everybody that walks by but it hardly means he's no longer there.

Maybe if no cases for 14 days.

But no cases for 30 days means there's no asymptomatic carriers.

No it doesn’t, it means no REPORTED cases.

I personally always wear a mask when I go in buildings or outside when I stay near other people. I also wear it on my motorbike. When I see that other people don't wear it I also take it off, but if they wear a mask I also wear it. I think we are guests in this country and we should adapt to the local people. Wearing a mask is also a sign of respect and care against the others.

I agree with everything you say except the nonsense about being guests

There is no law requiring you to wear a mask however I carry one with me and in the places where they have a sign asking you to wear one I have no problem complying with the request. Increasingly however at least in bkk there are fewer and fewer places requiring this. I am sitting now inside my favorite coffee shop where nobody Thai or farang is wearing a mask and there is no requirement for social distancing. 

Certainly in the areas I’ve been to in Bangkok and in my area distancing is observed a bit less now, but mask wearing is prevalent at a percentage I’d say at well over 90%

Surely they could all be asymptomatic.

 

Also they could be symptomatic but unreported, happens all around the world, particularly in countries like Thailand.

 

Also there could be a lot of cases which are mild, so mild that they are thought to be a brief fever, cough or cold or other flue.  A lot of this around the world.

 

Or could be a mutation with longer time characteristics.  Like one that can live in your bathroom mold for 90 days. Or even just 36 days.

 

To suggest that there is a magic 30 day or 35 day cutoff is off the mark.

My neighbor won't wear a mask, won't have a vaccine when they have one, is all made up to control us, but he believes it is no worse than the flu, covid-19 was made in a laboratory in the USA along with ebola, SARS, HIV,  they are going to inject a microchip into us with the vaccine to track and control us all, the moon is hollow and was made by aliens, all the world leaders, the queen and Jews are shapeshifting reptilians from an alien planet, David Icke is trying to warn us,  5G causes covid-19 Bill Gates is the devil and trying to kill us all to depopulate the world but I am a sheeple etc how can you get someone like that to wear one or get vaccinated when available? Nice guy, strange ideas. 

1 in 3 people in the USA will refuse to be vaccinated. Many have similar beliefs, and I suspect many reading this do too..

I read your whole post and you didn’t use the word PLANDEMIC. What kind of conspiracy theorist are you eh? 😂😂.

The attention seeking fools who make up these things are weird, but the people who actually believe them really ought to get back on their anti psychotic meds.

That is sort of the point, "if" the virus is still spreading, it is spreading amongst young healthy asymptomatic carriers. Therefore there wont be any infected people presenting at hospital, or getting counted at hospitals.

It may not be spreading but without wide scale testing nobody can say its not.

Most of the spread, town to town, country to country etc has been asymptomatic carriers, the people with symptoms are sick in bed/hospital and to sick to travel.

Great reasoning to just keep everyone wearing masks for the rest of their life. 

It works.  Those places where many have been wearing masks for years have low infection rates.  You know, places where you see high mask wearing numbers everyday for the past 10-15 years.

"Therefore, there is no reason whatsoever to wear a mask now, since there is not a single person in the country who has the virus, knowingly or unknowingly".

Asymptomatic carriers do not know they have the virus. Thailand has tested less than 0.1% of its population. How the OP reaches the conclusion there is not a single person in the country with the virus defies the logic he is espousing.

I get that you don't want to wear a mask. I don't get justifying that position with BS arguments.

 

It's up the Provincial Governors if you have to wear a mask 100% of the time you're outside your home. Either you follow the rules or not,just try to understand who comes up with the rules and why. How hard can it be?

Are you advocating the New Normal
