Another variant to scare the littler old people away, is not ending to the variants.

Even N95's are not really effective, better than toilet paper? Just barely. I work in the nuke and environmental remediation industry, I have worn about every type of respirator available. The N95's just don't seal against the face with enough efficiency to be effective, period. A half face respirator with P100 particulate cartridges is about the most effective for protection against breathing IN a virus sized particle, problem is that they have exhalation valves, which would do nothing for transmission.

Thank-you for sharing your REAL WORLD expertise, Panoz77! Thankfully, the Health-related systems inside the government are so confused and conflicted at this time, it's not likely that any major mask-upgrade guidance will be forthcoming.

I'm still in disbelief that the CDC told infected people to reduce their quarantine from 10 days to 5 days. The SCIENCE in 2020 said 14 days was the mandatory quarantine period, because that's how long a person is contagious.

Now, a person is only contagious for 5 days!

What changed with the virus? omg.

The airlines make you wear one(N95) without a valve, why, they don't care about your personal airflow, the mask is to protect others, not you personally, the theory always was if everybody has one on then everybody is protected.
But if everyone has one with a valve we are all equally protected as well, it's BS.

And that only 2 years later after they told everyone they could should not get those.

So lets review, what DID they do to improve the situation outside of handing out toxic jabs? Did they build extra ICU's in the past 2 years + ?


NO.

Now wonder why that it.

but where exactly would we get all those proper masks with the valve so everyone could wear them? the whole reason things like n-95 masks were not required in the first place, is that there was a world wide shortage of them. even hospitals couldn't get enough. and i don't think we are anywhere even remotely close to producing the TEN BILLION or so masks A DAY that would be needed to be able to have everyone wearing them. and the proper thinking was that at least some protection, as offered by the masks people used, is fa better than no protection at all. in fact knowing full well that the masks were only partially effective, some countries required everyone to wear both a mask AND a face shield, to give that just a bit more protection on top of the masks everyone knew were not as effective as they should be.

my personal opinion, is that if you can get a hold of proper masks, with the valve in them, that you should be allowed to wear them, provided that you also wear a non valved mask on top of it, especially properly covering that valve. which would deal with the problem of having that valve.

the reason they were telling people not to use masks such as n-95s was that there were not enough for the medical people who needed them far more. in fact at the beginning they were even practically begging anyone who had such masks take them to the nearest hospitals who badly needed them.

Covid loses 90% of ability to infect within minutes in air – study



Coronavirus loses 90% of its ability to infect us within 20 minutes of becoming airborne – with most of the loss occurring within the first five minutes, the world’s first simulations of how the virus survives in exhaled air suggest.

The findings re-emphasise the importance of short-range Covid transmission, with physical distancing and mask-wearing likely to be the most effective means of preventing infection. Ventilation, though still worthwhile, is likely to have a lesser impact.


Seems they found a way to levitate viral particles.

Wondered if the tested Sunny, cold days available UV due to latitude etc. -40c to +40c should make a difference in the reaction surely

Is the operative word “feels”? Seems like it to me. I thought science is not “feels”.

Do you know any nurses or doctors who use Ivermectin as prophylaxis?

Dosing weekly or monthly has had 100% efficacy I've read.

I wonder why the higher ups do their best to destroy the drug?

Where are they going to get them?

They have been requiring us to wear ours for a week, before issuing new ones. How damn effective it that?

How do they plan to FIT test everyone that is putting on those N95s? Again, how damn effective is that?

They are not doing themselves any favors, they are just making themselves look even more ridiculous.

The push for N95s will provide no better effectiveness than a bandana, when it has not been fitted properly to the wearer, when it is being worn under the chin, when it is been worn for hours on end, and reused multiple times.

They all know this, so I have no idea what this little mini-game is about.

Have they initiated a disposal strategy? Or is the present strategy of dropping these dangerous viral instruments on the ground, on the floors, or carrying them in your purses and pockets, working well enough?

They had to make sure turtle neck and bandana manufacturers were given a chance to profit......

Evil media and medical people are still not uttering the words, "Natural Immunity derived from past Covid-19 Recovery".

Well here is a lot of PPE, just waiting for us, with a bunch of other stuff.

I am sure a lot of it is salvageable.

You get new masks? My wife, works in an ER/ICU setting as a hospitalist, has been using the same surgical mask going on at least a month now. She usually does about twenty days a month, and that's her mask for that strecth. She only wears a mask at work, and even then only around patient areas.

As for disposal? I believe people are still either throwing them on the ground, but I still see a fair amount going for the virtue signal disposal method of hanging them on their rearview mirror.

I was lucky enough to have a co-worker who thinks about me. She was able to comshaw me five N95s. I was so surprised last night when she handed them to me, and they were greatly appreciated. She is in and out of almost every hospital in the county, so her husband was proactive in getting her a supply. It is great to work with those that know what it is like to be a true team.

I heard that sunlight was effective at killing COVID, I just didn't know that the proper protocol was to lie them on the ground or hang them from your rearview mirror. I am going to have to get better at that.
