Mask wearing
syken |

I know sometimes its very hard to wear a mask with breathing especially by working. I have heavy asthma and i cant wear that shit for more then 4 hours so i wear it everywhere except school classroom since its 8 HOURS A DAY i couldnt do that, really- Sorry. but how do some people like do it UNDER THE NOSE BUT ABOVE THE MOUTH????? where is the sense? I understand it at the chin since like you do a break of the mask, your getting good air and its same as wearing it under the nose just that you get better air even though you spread covid both under nose and chin. Under the chin you can make it up fast and you get better air. LIKE WHY WOULD YOU PUT IT UNDER NOSE ONLY???

what if you breathe in from the nose and out from the mouth? Does this method beat covid/masks??

People don't have the necessary attention span to do that for long periods of time.
2021-01-15 20:16
Yes. Masks are mostly effective in stopping an infected person from spreading to others, so controlling what comes out of you is the most important.

Some people are stupid and just don't know. They need to protect themself and those around them properly, so tell them to wear their mask right. It not so different than some don't get that they should wear seat belts when sitting in the back - and that is to protect them self and those sitting in the front as well. I for one am not driving with passengers not wearing seat belts, just like cargo also needs to be tied down right.

Masks are only worn to stop you breathing in people's droplets when they sneeze, cough, or even talk. The more layers the more useful as well. Most cloth masks are probably 2-3 layers, which will stop most droplets in the air.

nope, you are supposed to protect others from you, not the other way around. normal cloth masks are not able to protect you, that's not what their use is.

Use your brain for a second. So it stops droplets from exiting the mask, but not entering? It's a mask, not a forcefield. It works both ways. Read some articles.

It's very bad here. 700 deaths (out of a 1.3million population in the province I live in), most deaths occure in senior homes and none of us have been aloud to buy non essentials for months, can't visit family or friends, can't go anywhere without a mask inside a building. Break any of these rules and you get fined.

We also have "rules" about masks, but it's rather a recommendation than mandatory (though for some specific jobs masks are required probably). As for people, it's 50/50: some wear mask everywhere outside of the home, some (like me) give zero fucks. Personally when I go outside I wear this just in case: For example, they may ask you to wear a mask in a shop at the checkout, then I just do this: and usually that's enough, although obviously it doesn't protect anyone from anything, just a formality.

In my current country of residence there is a mandatory mask mandate(even when you are outside and there is noone near you!) but its actually unconstitutional and if you go to the court it will rule in your favor.
2021-01-16 21:07
But you don't really understand what the point of those masks is. You don't wear them to protect yourself from corona, but to protect others if you might have it. Normal cloth masks absolutely do work, if you use them correctly. And a N95 masks also protects you from others.

cloth masks dont do what people think they do because it doesn't filter stuff out then you touch you face or mask then spread it. Like the masks my wife gets from work even wearing it if you sneeze it still goes through. Like i said im not against masks but there's tons of them that dont do what people think. Theres a few study's that shows people sneezing and it going right thru the masks. i think people should wear proper masks

Yeah, it slows down particles, which means they will travel less distance, but if you are outside or not close to someone it really doesnt change anything. Unfortunately I reside in a cloud cuckoo land and there is a mandatory mask mandate EVERYWHERE, but read this #138 its pretty ridiculous

Two things are fundamentally wrong in the US when it comes to handling Coivd19. 1. Because Trump downplayed the disease lots of people do not take it serious, this then means lots more has gotten it. 2. Because of the Trump mishandling of the pandemic and also the fragile health care system you guys have, this has then further increased the number of infected. It is sad, but the US could have done a lot better and with less financial problems, if Trump had not been so vain he has been unable to tell the truth. Him and the media promoting his lies has thousands of deaths on them, now with Covid so wide spread it is like a run away train - just getting some control takes a massive effort and many more lives will be lost.
