Uh u do realize masks are not to stop you from getting Covid, they are there to stop YOU from SPREADING covid

That's the best excuse they could come up with. It's a psy op and at this point in all the ridiculous things the government has done in the name of this virus, you don't believe you're being played, you're an idiot.

Bro the government is being stupid, yeah, but that’s a fact. The masks only filter air going OUT of the mask, not the other way around. Get your facts right before calling someone who’s right an idiot

While I don't condone the ad hominem name-calling, I do still have to agree with the point that if the mask does not provide much protection for inhalations (because it does not create an airtight seal or provide an actual barrier for the mouth, allowing air to enter around the edges), it provides minimal to no protection as far as exhalation go as well (because air can escape from around the edges and it's not an airtight seal). If a mask were to be worn so that it created an airtight seal, it would ostensibly have better results.
"Whereas the surgical mask provides moderate (>60%) and excellent (close to 100%) particle exclusion below and above 300 nm, respectively, the tests carried out with the 1% opening surprisingly resulted in significant drops in the mask efficiencies across the entire size range (60% drop in the >300 nm range). In this case, the two holes were ∼0.635 cm in diameter and the mask area was ∼59 cm2."
Excerpt from a study on mask efficiency, here, for your consideration. https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsnano.0c03252#
Obviously masks are a traditional anti-pandemic method used since the early days of man, but I think it's certainly imperfect, especially with the in-depth studies we're able to do in textile science. So, i think it would be fair to say that the mask does not STOP the spread of the virus because that seems to deal in absolutes. I would say the more accurate thing to say would be that the mask gives a slightly higher potential of not transmitting the virus, Because we're dealing in probabilities and potentials with the virus rather than any distinct black-and-white truths, unfortunately. I apologize for the length.

It's for both purposes. The CDC recently said wearing a mask protects the user and reduces chance of contracting the disease by 65%. Now, I take everything I hear from the CDC with a grain of salt. Actually, like five grains of salt. Anyhow, masks obviously both protect the user, to some extent (even if it is minimal), and others around the user (even if it is minimal). Since this virus is less than 1 micron in diameter, don't expect the commonly worn mask to do a whole lot. It might do something, but I bet the effect is nearly negligible, if not completely negligible altogether.

they also said we didn't need masks 4 months ago... and 'Shelter in Place', to 'Flatten the curve'... Many place never had a curve to Flatten, why were they on Lock down too?

Yeah this "pandemic" is about to lose its pandemic status....mortality rate is far below the threshold for such a distinction.

States with mask mandates have experienced dramatic drops in covid cases.
States without mask mandates have experienced dramatic increases in covid cases.
Most of the rest of the world has handled this pandemic much better than the US, and a big reason for that is the wearing of masks.

Covid has over a 99.5% recovery rate. It is also 5x less likely to affect white people. I'm just not that concerned. Yes it is real.. but not worth living in fear from.

By “recovery rate” you mean people who don’t die. But you’re ignoring the damage it does to the lungs. Yea, you’ll live, but you might have respiratory problems the rest of your life.

Well considering the average person that catches it is 78.6 years old......
reply

Actually, the median age has dropped as low as 33 in Florida. In Arizona, people between 18 and 28 are contracting covid at the highest rate. Younger people are more likely to socialize in large groups without taking precautions, so they are becoming the new demographic most likely to contract the illness.

So, you aren't worried, so long as mostly non-whites get it. I mean, f**k them, right? Wow.

Assuming that you are correct about that recovery rate... you do realize that there are a lot of places one can be between "dead" and "perfectly fine", right? Some of those places are worse than death, and some involve hefty medical bills.

Well.....that's how democracy works. You burn down the town to save it.
And once again....it has a 99.5% recovery rate. The number 1 killer of women is obesity induced heart disease, ...I don't see anyone closing McDonalds

Democracy works by burning down towns that are mostly non-white? I'm not sure that you know what democracy is.

Okay. Majority wins. Let's go with that.
The majority of Americans think wearing a mask is a good way to stop the spread of covid-19.
So, you lose. Wear a goddam mask.

It's way way more than 99.5%. That's the number based on cinfirmed cases. Actual number of cases of C19 is easily 10X what has been confirmed. Even the CDC says that. I bet it's more on the order of 100X the number of confirmed cases. So, it's probably more like 99.95% recovery rate.

Hottest???? Its not even warm. 99.5% survival.
Although....maybe white people should segregate , after all, they carry an uber deadly disease for poc. Out of concern for their safety
