    Where are all of the reporters, governors and mayors condemning them for wanting to kill gramma?

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I'd still love to see the rationale for "one way aisles" in Walmart -- even the employees stocking shelves totally ignore them.
    My main concern is that people who do wear them will slack on precautions in other matters. Thankfully that hasn't happened.

    It's just so silly - I frequently see two people in a vehicle driving along wearing masks --- assuming they're family (many times looks like husband/wife) --- why wear masks in YOUR OWN VEHICLE? Do they wear masks in their HOME? When they go to bed together?

    And gloves --- people wear gloves to touch the pin pad on the credit card processor, the food items they handle, their own faces.... The IDIOCY in this is absolutely astounding.

    I've seen many people not wear the mask over their noses. Why even bother wearing a mask if it isn't covering both air passages?!
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    The logic there, as has been told to me, is to protect others from coughing or sneezing, but, yeah...

    This is exactly the sort of paranoia that is going to make it so difficult for us to return to normal living. So many people's lives have been destroyed because of this nonsense.

    I am hereby coining a term (if it's not already out there)....

    Coronaphobia


    I talked with a man yesterday on the phone who is absolutely TERRIFIED of getting Covid. His family says this is new - he never had this kind of fear before.
    He's older - 68-70, but in great health, and I believe him to be a Christian.
    He won't go outside, makes his wife take a shower when she comes home and put her clothes in the laundry, and is CONSTANTLY doing the hand sanitizer and mask thing.

    Yeah. Everyone here wears them when in public, stores, offices, shopping, meetings, etc. But it's a bit of a cultural thing here, people would wear them if they had a cold and had to go to school or whatever. Also as protection against air pollution. So people are used to it already.

    They probably have some benefit in reducing the spread of infection from people who are infected. May reduce the amount of particles coming out, and also reduce the amount we (unconsciously) touch or faces, mouth, noses, eyes. Don't know if that's helped here, but infection rates are now way down, almost all new cases for a while now are people returning from abroad.

    I came across someone saying that most masks were ineffective because they don't screen out particles down to the very small size of the actual virus. But I think that completely misses the point - AFAIK what transmits infection is not so much individual viruses being sneezed or sprayed out, but droplets of saliva etc which contain many viruses, infected cells etc. These droplets suspend for a time in the air, and can be breathed in, thus leading to an infection. So the point is to stop / reduce the number of these droplets coming out of an infected person, which surgical masks would to some degree do.

    Which is insane, because people who are prone to dying from the China flu are the same people prone to dying from the common flu, but I have never before seen this sort of irrational fear grip the country.
