I know, but how much longer would you wear a mask out in public is what I'm asking, since you apparently still wear one regularly in 2023.

I'm saying it sounds like you'd wear one for the rest of your life because you seem to live in a state of perpetual fear about viruses.

You can wear a surgical mask, wash your hands thoroughly, do social-distancing, (etcetera) and still get sick. It's inevitable unless you live in a bunker or a private island.

Most people have already caught the virus in 2020/2021 and we got over it. I was even one of the first people who possibly caught SARS in 2002 at the age of 6 and it was brief. A few elders in my family died later in early 2003 because they had pre-existing conditions and were heavy smokers.

Cases in the last week were around 25,000 a day around the world. compared to its peak of 3,850,000 a day, I’d say that’s a notably huge difference.

Other diseases have higher death counts and are just as contageous, and we don’t mask for those.
I’m all for masking, if my area goes above medium then I will put on a mask.
It just isn’t necessary right now

With treatments and immunity increased
You don’t have to worry about Covid in 2023. It’s barely any different than a cold and practically no different than the flu except in incubation period. And with everyone being vaccinated and having immunity from it, no one is gonna spread it around unless they haven’t had Covid yet

Wearing a mask in 2020 and 2021 would be considered smart
Wearing a mask in 2023 would be considered a germaphobe move as you literally have a less than 0.3% chance of dying from it unless you have a immune disorder
1 up, 1y,
3 replies
That's not how mask work.
It's not germphobic to wear a mask. It's considerate of other people.
Are there masks on the market that prevent the wearer from contracting airborne illnesses? Yes.
Does covering your face keep your germs to yourself? Also yes.

Last I checked, the government doesn't encourage it much anymore. Now...let's say, hypothetically, I get the Corona and pass it on. So what? Our bodies have probably adapted by now. It's less likely to die from it.

You're forgetting about the immunocompromised. Those with immunodeficiencies, or cancer patients. Most of them are still unvaccinated.

Listen. Think of me however you want too, but I don't give a crap. I barely ever go to real cities, I am asymptomatic, so I have not gotten it, and I am in an area that would be hell for the whoever-you-call-its. The fact still stands that I don't have it, nobody around me has it, I don't care if I ever pass it on, because at this point, they'll probably be fine. So. F**kin. What?
0 ups, 12mo
You're a selfish prick. Just because you're asymptomatic, doesn't mean you don't have it. People who are CoVID-19 positive can be asymptomatic for up to 5-10 days, depending on the strain. And you calling immunocompromised folk (seriously, how hard is it to retype it, when i spelled it out *right there*?) "Whoever-you-call-its" just shows you don't care about people with illness and diseases with Lupus, HIV, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and cancer patients; you view them as expendable for your own comfort.

Shame on you.

I don't make people's lives miserable. I live in a rural area full of drunk 40 year Olds who obsess over trump. Let's not forget that they don't go outside, they don't cut their grass, they have 15 rusted and old trucks and they don't wear masks either. AZ far as I'm concerned, nobody around me is miserable.

I do indeed accept being the bad guy. I'm not the perfect human being. I am fine with being the bad guy because I am practically unable to hurt people because the most people I see I my life are in my dirty local grocery store where nobody wears a mask. I at least cover my mouth when I cough in there. Unlike most people in there. Have you ever taken the time to notice that barely anyone actually wears a mask anymore? Are you this super hero? Is EVERYONE a bad guy BUT you?
0 ups, 12mo
"Have you ever taken the time to notice that barely anyone actually wears a mask anymore?"
No, because most of the people in my city wear one indoors, unless they're around other people they *know* are vaccinated and aren't immunocompromised, but also they'll wear one anyways if they even so much have the sniffles, because they don't want anyone to catch their germs. Have you learned *nothing* from the pandemic?!?

"Are you this super hero?"
No, and that's a really weird question to ask, which suggests you have a complex of some sort. Go to therapy.

"Is EVERYONE a bad guy BUT you?"
No, just the selfish jerks like you who goes around making everyone's life miserable.

Now go away.

I know how a mask works. Masks are more effective at keeping germs in than keeping germs out. I’m saying that in 2023, you either can have immunity from a trusted vaccine, or if you already had it in the past year. And literally over half the United States has (almost full) immunity, so the virus hasn’t spread anywhere since the beginning of 2023. Unless there’s news of a new variant that is rapidly spreading, the virus more than likely isn’t gonna get you unless you get a lot of company.
My only time I’d actually wear a mask personally in 2023 would be if I know I could or do have it.

Or you can continue to wear a mask for literally any other illness you contact that's communicable (cold, flu, "the sniffles," etc), and keep others from catching what you have if you're not feeling 100%

Eastern countries have been doing this for decades. Europe and South America have adopted mask culture too, post-pandemic.

Wearing a mask isnt just for covid, and if you can't see that, you're a selfish prick, and I have nothing more to say to you.

Last week, the average Covid deaths across the world daily was around 350, and that includes countries with poor health care. At this point, the flu kills 3x more people daily than Covid. If everyone got their immunity here in the USA, whether it be vaccines or from getting it before, you shouldn’t have to worry about it.
