Just like his "pump and dump" money making schemes.

Two executives at drug firm Moderna quietly sold nearly $30 million of stock when they unveiled coronavirus vaccine and value rose - before share price went down again.

Why China used mask from the starting and WHO leadered by pro chinese said the opposite to the rest? That's a good question.

Science isnt concrete. It changes. I mean here in Germany at first the RKI also said masks didn't work, but after some testing showed they did they changed their statement. Just cause scientists changed their opinion to reflect the evidence and the reality of the situation dosent make them two faced lmao

I think it comes down to what a person means they say the masks "work" ( or don't).

Do they provide 100% protection against the virus? Nope. Does they provide more protection than bare skin? Probably, but not much. Combine this with social distancing and essential contact only, and now you have some protection.

Is it 100% guaranteed? Nope. But we can't wait for a vaccine to start reopening, because the pay of essential workers isn't enough to keep the economy from flatlining.

I agree with most of this other than " Does they provide more protection than bare skin? Probably, but not much."

Its been proven that masks lower the infection risk by up to 70-80%

Cloth masks? Or N95?
reply

Anyone, prefering N95 without valve. I suggest buying full face gas mask and P100 filters. More confortable and effective.

Well really depends on how the mask is designed and it varies. But the main point is to stop minscule spit projectlies from leaving your mouth. If you alone wear it it only lowers it by something like 20 to 30% but if you and an infected person wear it it rises to about 70 to 80. Its important to stop it from spreading instead of stopping it from arriving

*I* agree, but there's a fellow on here who will argue that because the virus is smaller than the spaces in the masks, the masks provide no protection. I've seen too many kickers in American football hit the goal post to believe that. There's also the question of how much of the pathogen has to be present in the body to cause the infection and probably fifty other factors to consider as well. I don't trust absolute statements about the matter. That's just not congruent with my experience of the real world.

There is an explanation, all mask work. All do something. But not all mask work at the same level. There is no perfect protection. But any protection can reduce infection rate. And the point is lower the infection rate under 1. R0<1.

Which means, each infected of that virus, infect less than 1 more person. So all people would do the most by their sides, and correct info about virus.

The problem is massive disinformation and reckless statements by the WHO.

There is 3 points to consider about the virus size:

- It usually flies inside small droplets, bigger than the virus itself
- Viral load matters a lot, even if viruses reach you, it matters a lot how much they reach your body
- Even if you are infected, it matters a lot with how much viral load you have been infecting.
- Wearing masks can facilitate the body to generate immunity, by entering only loose viruses, instead of saliva drops with millions of them

Yes, I agree. I wish others understood this.

The manufacturers of masks make no claims that facemasks or surgical masks can prevent viral spread. Do you know how much spit from a sick person you would have to rub into your eyes, put up your nose, or ingest to pick up millions of a virus? Viruses do not fly in droplets, they are expelled from the nose and mouth during normal breathing, talking, coughing, sneezing. So masks are useless to prevent the spread of viruses. Also, healthy people are not germ factories, so the exposure risk is low, except during flu and cold season. Also, coronaviruses cause colds at most, from which people fully recover from in 3 days to weeks, and that's only in those whose immune systems were initially weak. No one dies from the flu or coronavirus. Even the CDC stats on "flu deaths" are mostly pneumonia cases lumped in with the flu.

Viruses are smaller than the gaps in masks. So if someone offered you an even money bet on a kicker hitting the upright and the ball bouncing back on a close-range field goal or converting the kick, you would take the former action? Drop the BS. How are the properties of sub-micron viruses supposed to be congruent with your personal experiences? Viral load is a separate issue as to whether or not masks are effective at stopping the spread of viruses.

Doesn't matter, equally useless. Viruses can easily pass through the cloth, not to mention the huge gaps on the top, sides and bottom.

Those studies are based on outdated "droplet" theory, before they had better tech that showed viruses are expelled directly, not in droplets. Then there is the ridiculous "magic cloth" theory, that somehow the cloth is one-way fabric, providing higher protection in one direction. Viruses measure less than 0.1 microns, while mask fabric can only obstruct particles above 5 microns. I wouldn't trust any article or study hastily made in the past few months, as they are prone to being highly influenced by political, business and personal interests.

I think they also said make didn’t work so people didn’t hoard them.
