Not really but I'm not surprised that you missed it. Anna fell flat on her face with that post. :chuckle:

Read it again and see if you can't spot it.

It really is pathetic isn't it? Wearing a mask doesn't so much protect the wearer but other people from transmission but hey, certain snowflakes want to whine on about their rights being violated regardless or some such garbage.

Yep. The data show some benefit to wearing cloth masks for the wearer, but the major benefit was always known to be that it would help prevent the wearer from infecting others.

And the results show it. The super spreader event Trump put on in the WH rose garden demonstrates that fact.

funny how two people can look at the same data set and draw such different conclusions - I look at the data and find that there is no benefit to wearing a mask for the wearer - infection rates are virtually identical, except for those who report using a mask "sometimes"

Where I live, not wearing a mask is a really bad idea. It's not just the shops, buses, trains etc that turn you away, it's the fines.

All our medical workers wear masks all shift long, and then I read laymen trying to be clever about why they don't work. Duh.....

Over here, masks were politicized by Trump and MAGA. So stupid of them.

More than 1,000 current and former officers of an elite disease-fighting program at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have signed an open letter expressing dismay at the nation’s public-health response to the Covid-19 pandemic and calling for the federal agency to play a more central role.

“The absence of national leadership on Covid-19 is unprecedented and dangerous,” said the letter, signed by current and former officers of the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service of outbreak investigators. “CDC should be at the forefront of a successful response to this global public health emergency.”

All of the signatories were writing to “express our concern about the ominous politicization and silencing of the nation’s health protection agency” during the current pandemic, said their letter, which was published Friday in the Epidemiology Monitor, a newsletter for epidemiologists.

as have I when I've worked in the OR or the ICU's

They were very different masks than the masks under discussion here.

Wrong.
I have seen doctors and nurses in the Wards, Urology Unit, Endoscopy Units, Ultra-Sound Scan unit and throughout the Corridors of a Large Kent Hospital this last fortnight and the masks worn by all were the same as the one I was wearing.

Usual junk from you......... and please don't show me a pic from somewhere else in the World.

Stop being so thick.
Touching hands to face, ears and eyes is an involuntary action in most folks, something that they do automatically, and so to tell people not to do this is totally insufficient for their protection.

A mask protects them from their own hand-to-face actions.

Wake up.

which is the only reason you and eider and barbie are even discussing it

Wrong.
I don't live in the USA, follow a different rule, and only observe what's happening anywhere else.


Yes, it is. But entirely predictable considering your advanced stage TDS
If you were thinking of including me in the above sentence as well then you're thick.
I think it could be difficult for the UK if the Democrats gain power.

No, really they were. And we changed them between each patient and washed our hands after every handling of patient or specimen and donned fresh gloves before each patient.

I guarantee you that they're following the same protocols in the hospital I used to work in, one of the top twenty in the world when I was working there.


What might be a more fruitful conversation would be a consideration of glove and mask use by the gen pop in those countries that have the Kung Flu under control. Used to be S. Korea and Taiwan - are they still models of excellence?

You got an election coming up? Or are you like the Canadian model, where the PM can prorogue Parliament and call an election on a (politically strategic) whim?

Oh my goodness........ are you ever thick.
Your election makes a difference to our future trading situation.

You tagged your experiences to my post about our medics.

When I wore a mask when I was working in the OR or the ICU's, I also washed my hands literally hundreds of times a day. And gloved before touching a patient or a sample.

We're talking apples and oranges here.


there does seem to be a glove shortage now days.

n95 masks are 66% effective but are less effective if you contaminate them by constantly adjusting them

I wash my hands often at work and have learned to not touch my face

also don't remember doctors in clinics or ER's wearing masks pre wuflu


side note doug mcburney mentioned
hong kong flu was going around at the time of woodstock
and America didn't cower in their basements

Oh dear............ hand to face touching............. masks protect from this.

no one (hyperbole) handles mask correctly , everybody adjusts them while wearing them
they touch a door handle then later they adjust their mask , a warm & moist environment , a literal petri dish on their face,
so yes masks cause infection

cloth masks have a 97% failure rate at prevention
