Which, as you know, has nothing, whatsoever to do with the public wearing cloth masks in public.
Of course it does. Limiting the spread of respiratory output means any pathogen may not travel as far or spread as wide.
Then show us the facts where folks who wore masks all the time, have a far lower rate of infection with COVID. Why do you demand to fight science? That's all the major media outlets told you, isn't it? So you bow down and lap it up. Why?

Dr. Fauci Masks don’t work.

Europe's Top Health Officials Say Masks Aren't Helpful in Beating COVID-19

The top medical experts in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 or just make things worse.

Thursday, August 6, 2020

Denmark boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 COVID-19 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year.

Despite this success, Danish leaders recently found themselves on the defensive. The reason is that Danes aren’t wearing face masks, and local authorities for the most part aren’t even recommending them.

CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Getting Coronavirus Wore Masks
OCTOBER 12, 2020 By Jordan Davidson

A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them.

A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.

1/25/2021 Masking the Science

[…]
In truth, we wish masks worked. If they did, it would be a cheap, and easy way to control the spread of Covid. The idea that they protect not only their wearer, but also those people around them seems noble. We wished masks worked because citizens are spending billions of dollars on them.

We wish masks worked because most Americans wear them now. Telling them it was unnecessary will not make them happy. We wish masks worked because they have become a symbol for virtue and social responsibility. Anyone who doubts their utility is personally attacked; as though they don’t believe the viral pandemic is real, or don’t care about those who die from it.

Flip-flop Fauci reverses—again—on double-mask-wearing

Whatever Dr. Anthony Fauci says today may be different from what he says tomorrow, but he might come back to what he said yesterday in a day or two if he feels like it.
by Carl Durrek February 1, 2021 in Healthcare

If there’s one thing that’s certain about the coronavirus, it’s that Dr. Anthony Fauci reserves the right to change whatever he’s said in the past to fit whatever narrative he needs to push forward in the present. His reversals have become so common that it’s almost impossible to keep up with his current agenda at any given moment.

Many Studies Find That Cloth Masks Do Not Stop Viruses Like COVID
By Lisa Mair
NOVEMBER 23, 2020

A thorough marketing campaign for the use of low-quality masks has convinced millions of people that masks will reduce COVID-19 spread, but do they really?

Much Recent Pro-Mask Research Is Deeply Flawed
The only statistically significant data on preventing viral spread is for N95 masks worn indoors when one can’t socially distance, which is not the type of mask required nor typically worn by the general public.

He stated it is not a perfect solution.

Masks are less effective at protecting the wearer from airborne viruses. Persons who are contagious and not wearing masks around people who are wearing masks could potentially be worse for the mask wearer since it has been pointed out that something as small as an airborne virus (minus the respiratory droplets and aerosols) could penetrate the mask and possibly recirculate due to the mask being more effective at not letting those particulates escape from the wearer of the mask.
The reason why masks don't stop coronavirus is because there is no mechanism in them that can stop viruses. The holes or pores in masks that are meant to filter stuff out are 1000 times bigger than viruses and virus carrying droplets, so viruses and droplets flow through masks effortlessly. If one uses a filter that can actually filter out some viruses, pressure is created that allows breath to go around the mask. Masks are useless, and no lefty can explain HOW they work.

And still, you have nothing to support your allegation that masks are effective in limiting the transfer of COVID-19.

You're a good little lemming. The far-left tells you to wear a mask to stop the spread of COVID-19 and you do it! No proof or studies to support that notion but it makes you FEEL GOOD AND YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING!

Why are you so easily led around by the nose?
Only if you ignore the links I already posted. I could easily claim that anti-masking studies are deeply flawed. See how easy that is.

Your article is politically motivated to promote covid mask culture, which means your doctor quote is specific to the political mask agenda. My comments were in regard to why doctors have worn masks BEFORE covid, and to date. The real reason why doctors wear masks is not about political agenda like covid masks, it is the reason why masks were invented that dates back before your political agenda.

The pathogen that medical facilities have the most problems with is bacteria. Medical facilities have had bacteria problems for decades, and forever, and medical staff have worn masks to help control bacteria spread for decades. Surgical masks were invented specifically to reduce bacteria spread, and have been worn since long before covid. Bacteria are 1000 times larger than viruses.
I could claim the same about your point of view. Besides, bacteria are not the only communicable disease problem faced by hospitals. And, if hospitals have had bacteria problems then they must have also had virus problems. The point is that masks can help limit the spread of anything exhaled through breathing or coughing.

We identified seasonal human coronaviruses, influenza viruses and rhinoviruses in exhaled breath and coughs of children and adults with acute respiratory illness. Surgical face masks significantly reduced detection of influenza virus RNA in respiratory droplets and coronavirus RNA in aerosols, with a trend toward reduced detection of coronavirus RNA in respiratory droplets. Our results indicate that surgical face masks could prevent transmission of human coronaviruses and influenza viruses from symptomatic individuals.--https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0843-2
Your article pointed out why surgeons began wearing masks:

"Surgical face masks were originally introduced to protect patients from wound infection and contamination from surgeons (the wearer) during surgical procedures, and were later adopted to protect healthcare workers against acquiring infection from their patients. However, most of the existing evidence on the filtering efficacy of face masks and respirators comes from in vitro experiments with nonbiological particles9,10, which may not be generalizable to infectious respiratory virus droplets. There is little information on the efficacy of face masks in filtering respiratory viruses and reducing viral release from an individual with respiratory infections8, and most research has focused on influenza11,12"
Here is a modern study linked previously. -https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0843-2
Thank you for confirming that the cloth masks worn by the general public are worthless.

From your source, and I quote: " Our results indicate that surgical face masks could prevent transmission of human coronaviruses and influenza viruses from symptomatic individuals."

NO ONE wears surgical face masks in public. Plus, your study included only 240 subjects.

Would you not be better served by accepting the truth and not listening to the "HERE, DO THIS AND YOU'LL FEEL GOOD" message from the far-left?

Would you want your doctor to lie to you about your diagnosis or know what is going on?
That is all I have is surgical masks. And, some cloth masks have filter inserts.

Right wingers are even more incredible by claiming, don't do this and you will feel good.

Imagine the money you're saving on tattoos!

Simply wearing your submission scarf (mask) is a plain as if you hat a huge "666" tatt on your forehead.

Yes, a regime powerful enough to force you to wear a mask is also powerful enough to force you to wear a yellow star; to bear a number on your wrist and be BRANDED with its mark.

But, hey, if you voted for that.....enjoy!
Only right wingers prefer to repeat historical mistakes while alleging they are for the "gospel Truth".

Why are incapable of grasping that FACT?

No, the study you are quoting says that wearing a SURGICAL MASK is more effective than going maskless. That's difficult for you to grasp, is that natural for you or do you work at it?

You don't even understand your own source. I highlighted it in your post for your convenience since you obviously missed the "results" portion of the study. For everyone else, here is what my good friend "danielpalos" posted.

FACE MASKS DO NOT PREVENT SPREAD OF AIRBORNE PATHOGENS

Numerous randomized control trials (RCTs) analyzed the efficacy of masks in preventing the spread of an aerosol pathogen.

Below is a partial list of such trials found in professionally-reviewed literature, published by the following internationally-recognized organizations. I encourage you to click on any of the links to learn more:









WITHOUT ISOLATION/PURIFICATION, THIS “VIRUS” DOES NOT MEET STANDARD CRITERIA TO BE CALLED A VIRUS; LET ALONE “COVID-19”

The “standard operating procedure” for identifying any pathogen begins with isolation and purification, by using either Koch’s Four Postulates or more recently, Rivers’ Six Criteria (a modification of Koch’s Postulates for viruses).

The Rivers’ Six Criteria, though slightly different from Koch’s Four Postulates, are as follows:
•First, isolate the virus from the diseased host.
•Second, cultivate the virus in host cells.
•Third, provide proof of filterability.
•Fourth, produce the same disease in a new host.
•Fifth, re-isolate the virus.
•Sixth, detect a specific immune response to the virus.


A vast amount of more information at the link on the Covid:

The masks are God's mercy. Imagine, you talk without a mask. Now all you say can directly go to the devil with no impediment. Stick to your mask and learn the word church.

Don't be "Big Chickens" right wingers; the pandemic is worse than our alleged wars on crime, drugs, and terror combined. If you can be brave enough to go maskless for a pandemic you should also be brave enough to not need useless and expensive and alleged wars on crime, drugs, and terror!
One doesn't need to be brave to not wear a mask if he knows that the holes or pores in masks that are supposed to filter out the virus and droplets are 1000 times larger. Common sense.
Is that why doctors wear masks during health stressful procedures? Common sense is not wasting money on alleged wars on crime, drugs, and terror and instead upgrading infrastructure to help keep people busy with shovel ready jobs.
Doctors have been wearing masks for decades to help the bacteria problem that medical facilities are notorious for. Bacteria are about 1000 times larger than viruses are.
It's to keep bacteria out of open surgical wounds. When not in surgery doctors don't wear masks.

Is that why doctors wear masks during health stressful procedures? Common sense is not wasting money on alleged wars on crime, drugs, and terror and instead upgrading infrastructure to help keep people busy with shovel ready jobs.
Doctors have been wearing masks for decades to help the bacteria problem that medical facilities are notorious for. Bacteria are about 1000 times larger than viruses are.
It's to keep bacteria out of open surgical wounds. When not in surgery doctors don't wear masks.
Exactly. When they were concerned about a deadly virus, there is proper ppe available that, and it isn't a surgical mask.

Democrats, true to their heritage, demand to do something so they FEEL BETTER.

From day one, I could not imagine how a cloth mask would do diddly-squat for a virus. A virus, as most people other than Democrats know is a minuscule fraction of the size of bacteria.

Dr. Fauci Masks don’t work.

Europe's Top Health Officials Say Masks Aren't Helpful in Beating COVID-19
The top medical experts in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 or just make things worse.
Thursday, August 6, 2020

Denmark boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 COVID-19 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year.

Despite this success, Danish leaders recently found themselves on the defensive. The reason is that Danes aren’t wearing face masks, and local authorities for the most part aren’t even recommending them.

CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Getting Coronavirus Wore Masks
OCTOBER 12, 2020 By Jordan Davidson

A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them.

A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.

1/25/2021 Masking the Science

In truth, we wish masks worked. If they did, it would be a cheap, and easy way to control the spread of Covid. The idea that they protect not only their wearer, but also those people around them seems noble. We wished masks worked because citizens are spending billions of dollars on them.

We wish masks worked because most Americans wear them now. Telling them it was unnecessary will not make them happy. We wish masks worked because they have become a symbol for virtue and social responsibility. Anyone who doubts their utility is personally attacked; as though they don’t believe the viral pandemic is real, or don’t care about those who die from it.

:lol:

Old misinformation!

The Danes are in complete lockdown! I guess that non mask wearing they claim in your article, didn't work!

Now all is completely shut down but grocers.... k-4TH grade will finally be reopened this week.

Denmark has a 1.1% mortality rate among the best on the globe.
Common sense--and common courtesy are very helpful in not spreading the disease.

HAND WASHING like with all virus's helps more than anything else.

Right....and not coughing and sneezing on others, which people with common sense have been observing for years without any Gestapo mandates.

Masks are annoying and frankly I remain skeptical at how much they help given that people don't keep them clean like they should. Most people anyway. That being said we are run by the News Entertainment media that enjoys panicking people.



So see the poll and please vote.

Thank you
Well, in march the government told us 2 weeks to flatten the curve. Look where we are now.

I dont believe they do much if any good.

I only wear them to make the life of the employees where I shop, easier.
