I love how ads for masks kept appearing throughout this screed.

Next time you have surgery trumpies make sure to tell your doctor not to wear a mask!

TLDR

To summarize; It doesn't directly protect me, and I don't give a shiat about you.

Now, it's not just fark your feelings, it's fark your very existence. Which is the logical progression for those people.

Maybe only sick people should wear masks.  However,if you wait until you know you have the coronavirus it may be too late.  Many people are asymptomatic and can spread the virus before they show symptoms and are diagnosed. Thus, better for everyone to be masked when among others.

If casual strangers you run into are cutting you open, infection may not be your biggest concern.

/masks seem very unlikely to change ONE INDIVIDUAL's risks.
//but a lot of masks in use will change the statistics, which means some people don't get sick or die.
///masks on surgeons on the other hand, CAN significantly change the outcome of one individual.

Just about every word of that is stupid, but especially "quarantine is for the sick".   The etymology of "quarantine" is "40" as in "40 days".   That's how long you kept a ship isolated if you suspectedthat it might be carrying diseases such as the plague.   In other words, exactly what we're doing now.   And, without testing, every time you go out and have any contact with people, the clock resets.

People in the Middle Ages didn't screw around with quarantine because they regularly dealt with plagues that would wipe out entire towns.

Actually, if you're not in the Quarantine region of France, it's just sparkling isolation.

The only reason I am still friends with him on Facebook is to laugh at all the stupid shiat that he posts. His wife already blocked me during the last election.

Wearing a mask correctly won't cause you any trouble.  Wearing it improperly (e.g. adjusting it) might increase your chances of trapping pathogens in the air.

But because of how contagious COVID-19 is, it's safer to risk wearing it improperly than to go without.
 
2020-05-16 5:23:40 PM  
It's not dangerous to wear a mask, kids. But if you don't brush your damn teeth, you pigs, it IS awful unpleasant.

Maybe take this opportunity to inculcate some better personal habits, you filthy animals. And wash your damn hands!

The problem is we aren't marketing Masks properly. What we need is a catchy song that will make everyone want to wear one. Tell me you can listen to this tune and not want to wear one.

It even opens by referring to "masked crusaders"... that should win over the Christian right.

We had this chat a few days ago. They keep misinterpreting a study, done in 2015, in which healthcare workers were advised to use medical masks instead of non-medical masks in healthcare settings because, when the two types of masks were compared, medical masks reduce infection risk while non-medical masks increase infection risk.

I don't care any more. Morons gonna moron. Let 'em get sick & die at this point.

I wonder if during his medical school training they covered mask usage during surgery. I bet he wore one when ever he performed surgery.
 
2020-05-16 6:44:16 PM  
As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, " None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection."Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus.


Translation: No one has wilfully exposed multiple healthy people to either the influenza or COVID-19 virus without the benefit of PPE in order to establish a control group, therefore derp.

The troll I dealt with was misappropriating a study by the WHO from a month and a half ago that suggested masks could instill a feeling of invulnerability that could lead people to ignore other basic precautions... And they were using that to say that masks unequivocally bad.
