While most people, if not all in Thailand are wearing face masks, many countries has ditched them long ago and for go social distancing and use of alcogel and the results shows, when will they wake up that this is not a snuffle and some sort of a cold and take it seriously until a vaccine will be found and available...

Face masks would prevent against water droplets but not the fine particles discussed here, surely?

Exactly. If you care one bit about your family, friends and the general public you wear a mask. It costs you nothing and it might save lives.

If, by this stage, you're not wearing one you are without a doubt a complete **** - simple as that.

I have just spoken to a doctor- as part of some online exam preparation.  He just smiled at the notion that a mask is needed in outdoor situations, although he said that a triple lined mask is possibly useful indoors.  Maybe, he is a complete **** , but I doubt it.

For the scientists it's a real and important distinction but for you it's not. Got it!

But the information was in the news for regular people, right? Did YOU get THAT? Or is The Nation now a scientific magazine? Oh, wait now... Hmmmm, don´t bother to reply on that.

You seem to really like to argue. But it helps if you actually get the gist of the article in the first place:

 

 

So, once again, the news is about the scientists trying to get the W.H.O. to change their recommendations.

Now what is it that you are not understanding?

 

What I started with was that this is not news. The knowledge that the virus can spread by air for a limited distance was know before it was called a pandemic. That´s what I started with, then some posters take it further, and I reply. Why I reply, is that I still talk about the information in my first post. Not something the rest have added during the way.

Or maybe not very informed on the matter. He's a doctor, right? A doctor doesn't equal a scientist.

 

PS. If you look hard enough you're still gonna find doctors who will say that smoking is not unhealthy. Heck, they might even smile when they say it.

I cannot believe four peopleactually liked your post!

The news is not that it is airborne. The news is Hundreds of scientists say coronavirus is airborne, ask WHO to revise recommendations

But why bother to pay attention to that salient fact, when you can make a sensational statement(that makes no sense when you actually read the headline)?

 

 

What you can´t believe is actually quite irrelevant for this thread.

Relevance? Are you implying that since some masks might not protect you from the viral particles but only from droplets you should not wear a mask at all??

One's beliefs is actually what one expresses in one's posts so tell me again how that is irrelevant for any thread??

As you surely read it was connected to a poster and his post. What is expressed in a thread about the thread is relevant. What you believe about other posters likes and dislikes is irrelevant, due to that they can´t care less. Easy enough so you can understand it now?

I must be missing something here.

We are told that the virus needs a "carrier like a droplet or some similar kind of mass to piggy back on.

There must be a minimum size "droplet" so why have they not tested this under normal conditions to see just how far it can travel. All of the world has gravity so must go down.

While on this subject they suggest fans to move the air around which would to me only help in moving it further

Wow. A doctor. He wears a white coat just like a scientist. But I doubt that your doctor is an expert in virology and epidemiology.

So, why did you care from start then. Next time, just move on from the things you can´t comprehend.
