The most effective protective defense against The Coronavirus appears to be the Gas Masks.



I agree, but our Governments can not even order 3M, J&J, DuPont, etc.. to produce enough of n95facemasks to protect all American Citizens. Gas Masks would be impossible to mass produce, right?

What is the difference between a virus being aerosol and being airborne?

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

????

There are plenty of high quality N95s out there right now. They're in stock in most grocery stores. And medical supply stores will sell them in bulk. They run between 3 to $5.

Wow, even grocery stores sell N95facemasks in your neck of the woods. That's very good for you guys in your area.

Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods, no can do. For example, NOT EVEN the almighty HomeDepot has n95facemasks to sell. It apologizes for not able to sell N95facemasks to its customers because of shortages, i.e., Medical professionals, EMT guys, Cops, Firemen... need the n95masks more than you and me. It gets NO N95FACEMASKS TO SELL TO THE PUBLIC. It's just another facts of life stuff... What else is news? Governments have screwed up BIG TIME since Jan 2020.

I kid you not. Here is a proof that HomeDepot went out of n95facemask:

I haven't tried looking at Home Depot.

Where is "your neck of the woods?" In the US, right?

Instead of sending out a new stimulus check, the government should insist that you only get the check if you don't test positive for covid for the next 3 weeks.

Or something of that nature.

...since you don't actually need a cure to end this whole thing.

Right, I've lived in the good old USA. By the way, coffee filters come in handy when it's used in conjunction with a n95facemask. You see... I can not change the n95facemask when ever I get sweaty in a casino, but I can frequently change a coffee filter which serves like a Disposable Toilet Seat Cover.

I wouldn't be surprised if many of us have already encountered small amounts of the virus. It just wasn't enough, or just right to get past our multiple defenses.



And that's how we build immunity.
Not by hiding, but by circulating
and getting small pieces of it. You
can't hide forever in your basement.
