“The CDC specifically not recommending them for healthy people trying to protect against COVID-19. “It seems kind of intuitively obvious that if you put something—whether it’s a scarf or a mask—in front of your nose and mouth, that will filter out some of these viruses that are floating around out there,” says Dr. William Schaffner, professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University. The only problem: that’s not effective against respiratory illnesses like the flu and COVID-19. If it were, “the CDC would have recommended it years ago,” he says. “It doesn’t, because it makes science-based recommendations.”you can't read, you can't read. it'saul good man.You can’t answer, you can’t answer, it’s all good.when the country is 70% vaccinated, then we can ease up on the masks. as for the world - for those that are exposed to travelers on a reg basis, it's a good idea to mask up until the world has herd immunity. i said that already.I mask up just like others. You never answered the question, can’t answer or not? I don’t give a rip whether you mask up or not. I’ll do my part , you can do as you please.actually the flu stats compared to past years is relatively low. due to vaccinations & masking up ... but since we just got some vaccines on the market, hopefully next year the good ol' USofA won't have another 500,000 dead from covis & millions affected, 'eh? gotta say though, i'm more concerned with me & mine & then the public comes 2nd.... it's more of a selfish thing to wanna stay healthy. if that virus wasn't so transmissible & it was more behavioral based thru ignorance - i wouldn't give one fuck about you or anybody else not masking up. i'd be the first to say ba-bye.Why would we not mask up all the time with all the lives that could be saved? The flu takes thousands of lives a year, out of love of our fellow humans, should we not always mask up?ask the CDC & WHO what they recommend. i would think if one works at an airport or with foreigners on a daily basis, then it might be required until at least 70% of the world's population has been vaccinated.So then with unclean people all over the world, shouldn't we wear masks all the time to save other's lives?not everyone wore masks ... & they aren't 100% effective. but upwards of 75% protective. think of them like condoms - why would you have unprotected sex with anybody nowadays? why would you go out in public without protection - not knowing if the person next to you isn't 'clean'?And explain the spike in cases starting in the Fall while everyone wore masks.N95 masks work. The FLU is all but gone this year. Masks and distancing are working fine.
We don't want spikes before everyone is vaccinated, especially with the new mutations.
