You don't reuse condoms or turn them inside out, I think people are not using masks right. I mean once it goes on, it should stay on. If they were in ample supply and available everywhere, would be different. My opinion is there is a lot of contamination and unintended consequences.

Well yes, but... if you actually read the article it gives compelling reasons why you should wear one.



The CDC and WHO are at odds. You may wear one if you want, but quit saying I am a loner crank for being against them. Lots of people are against them. I would say most. It is just that I will say so. Now the WHO is saying what I have been saying. If you are in a medical area or such then there is reason to wear them. But at the grocery store? Not so much.

I agree
Nobody should listen to WHO. Especially in wealthy countries
The WHO covers the whole planet including every 3rd world country on the planet
Theses poor countries just don't have masks for everyone like we do
The Who would lose all credibility if they say poor countries without masks have to wear them

I listen to the CDC who's main concern is the good ol USA. They say wear a mask in public
You never know when you may encounter infected maskless person leaving virus particles in the air for several minutes as you walk

I have lots of adjectives to describe you, but neither "loner" nor "crank" were on the list. Don't put words in my mouth.

If some people are asymptomatic they may not know they are sick, or sick yet. So it might be a bit of problem knowing when you're healthy.

WHO Shares AZDuffman's pposition! Healthy people should wear masks only if caring for coronavirus patients

Well, well, well!

I had to read it a a second time to see if I missed anything, because it certainly didn't seem gloat worthy to me after reading it the first time.

You might want to read my post again.
"let's for a minute just accept that all that actually does help" and by that I mean, even if masks where proven to help significantly, there would still be people that would still have the f*** masks and social distancing attitude(everyone, lets go party).

FYI. I don't think wrapping a bandana around your face is sufficient enough to call a mask.

I've seen time and time again where people actually don't respect your space and they're not wearing masks, its almost unavoidable.

If these masks don't help at all then I guess we're really f***** and we should expect another big lock-down, or just deal with it and accept the consequences.

Whatever the case, it's easy to sit and talk about this stuff safely from behind a computer screen. I'm not sure how eager you would be to say Well, well, well! If a lot of your friends, family and loved ones started ending up in critical condition or dying.

My friends and family are part of the majority that find the masks silly.

As to "another lockdown" we had better hope not. Enough damage already done. We are seeing some good, old fashioned treatments working and that the deaths are concentrated among the older members of society. Need to use that in our responses.

Life is risk. I honestly cannot believe people who think we need to wear masks lest we all die would put money at risk in a casino.

No. Response.
