Welp just got both nasal cavities swabbed, my homie conor mcgregor nut hugger @conor mcgregor nut hugger talked me through it and it really wasn't that bad. I had a fairly high fever this weekend that has not returned so far today, so now I just need to wait for the test to come back.

good luck
mouth breather breath melts masks
and then it releases the hot soupy covid even worse than if they weren't wearing it

Short of N95s or better it is a false sense of security

I thought we went through this already. Advertisement of stopping the Bigger particles in the atmosphere is because the bigger ones are....well in common terms....strong enough to penetrate the mask. SMALLER particles bounce off, for fuck's sake. (Or get trapped to or stick to the outside)

Read the manufacturing standards.

Would you try to make someone feel dumb for covering their mouth when they cough or sneeze?

Anything, and I mean anything, that disrupts the flow of particles (and scatters them) will help. Is it foolproof? No. Are some masks better than others? Yes. But anything helps.

oh don't get your jimmies rustled again.

There are levels to this mask game, that is the facts.

Would you be fine being in close contact with a person with a contagious virus while wearing a loose cloth mask? Or would you prefer n95 or better?

Your hilarious.

I didn't say don't wear mask or take precautions...I said it is a false sense of security when somebody thinks the cotton or surgical mask with open sides is gonna stop all particles and they stop distancing/washing hands etc.

I wear a face covering, but I don't for a second think it is protecting me or others absolutely. That is what that video was about, nothing more nothing less.

Geez Louis Shinkicker, slow your roll buddy

Did you watch the video? I think he is saying that N95 don't work either.

And that man is a doctor. Lol

"would I make somebody feel dumb for covering their mouth when coughing or sneezing?"

where are you getting that?
I have always thought that was appropriate behavior.

I am shaming nobody, I am making nobody feel "dumb". You made that up as something I was doing, and then got mad at it.

I think he is saying the virus can still fit thru the holes in N95...that is all I took from it.

It was science and about false sense of security.

He said even N95 has limitations.

And yes doctors can say stupid shit or be ignorant...We all see this every day IRL.

Most people are half way wearing homemade masks is all I am saying, I think most of them don't know what level of protection that mask is or isn't giving them. Most people aren't sterilizing or even washing the masks.

"...I said it is a false sense of security when somebody thinks the cotton or surgical mask with open sides is gonna stop all particles and they stop distancing/washing hands etc."

So, are you saying that you posted that video to help educated people that wearing a mask alone without other measures taken is giving people a false sense of security?

That was your intent? You don't even have to answer that. Everyone on the receiving end of your posts feel like they are getting the message loud and clear.

And I'm not mad. Lol. And you dont be mad when I call bullshit when I see it.

I posted the video because even N95 has limitations.
Cloth masks give false sense of security.

There is no intent other than that.
I don't care what mask people are or aren't wearing.

I don't know the guy in the twitter video, I could care less what people think about him.

Masks can filter particles as small as 0.007 microns – 10 times smaller than viruses, and much, much smaller than the PM2.5 cutoff. What’s more, they work surprisingly well, even while people are wearing them. Surgical masks don’t work as well as N95 masks, but they are cheaper and more readily available. This makes them useful alternatives when other masks aren’t available.

Yes
I am fully aware of that

Thank you for today's mask class
