You need to understand what you’re reading thoroughly. READ IT IN FULL DETAIL.
Find the actual medical studies. Please read.
Also the study you pointed out “significantly reduce...” are only droplets not aerosol. droplets aren't majority of the problem. Aerosols are. Read about virology, understand the differences. You seem like you want to do the right thing which I appreciate your effort. But you gotta pass o the correct info and fully get what’s out there
Haha. That's right where I'm at with it.
but if you have the virus a mask help you spread less of it in the air
Why did the QA pick one that says no, then also pick one that says yesit sends mixed signalsof course the answer is no
Hahaha 😂 preach girl!! I need to vote for you!!
Then look no further than @FruitAndBlueEyes for your idiot jackass
Also, look at @Apple1996but, she's a troll anyway, so, i never trust what she says
@asshole_ haha why do you think I'm a troll?
when aren't oyu
@asshole_ I'm never acutally being a troll. I'm being myself and saying what I feel
nope, you're a troll. BIG TIME
@asshole_ okay well as long as I can get into that cute movie trolls then I'll accept being one
go try out, you'd be perfect for the role
Thank you, apple 1996 !!! You're awesome
... infecting others.
Thanks for mho!
You're welcome 🙂
"I don't need to feel the need to protect other people from getting sick"I don't know, that sounds pretty selfish to me. Does that include your friends and family as well?
@SpiderManFan2002 the only family I'm with is my kids and husband. My husband has already lived with us while having covid and non of us ever acutally got sick so it's kind of fake in my opinion
I did visit my family a month ago. Which I completely forget about but no still didn't wear a mask with them
why did the qa pick you AND fruit, if you're both saying it's stupid... while he also chose two people saying no, it's notthe answer of course, really is, noIt sends mixed signals when he chooses two yes's and two no'sI don't trust YOU, I also don't trust QA
@asshole_ I didn't choose them. It was auto selected
probably shouldn't have let it, then, yes?
@Apple1996 Wow so again, only thinking about *your* incident that impacted *your* life so because that happened to *your* family COVID must be fake despite you live in the USA I assume with the highest number of cases in the world!It may have acted differently for you guys, but for many other families one person came home with it- and they all caught it, that's what I hear from others is the running theme, sooooo even if what happened to your family happened with my family I'd still be cautious due to what has happened to *other people*.But of course you think it's stupid to protect others from getting sick. Well if you can have the mentality about everyone else's husbands, everyone else's kids, everyone else's families, and just everyone else as a whole- people can also have that same mentality about you, your husband, your kids, your family. You be selfish towards others, you'll receive selfishness back.
@SpiderManFan2002 obviously I dont even care if my own family gets sick so why the fuck should I care about others? In my opinion covid isn't a big issue. If it is to you then that's your opinion. But not everyone should be forced to wear mask just to comfort the paranoid people
@asshole_ Indeed.@Apple1996 Actually, yeah never thought about like that. I've been very stupid here. How can I expect you to care about the wider communities lives and health when you don't even care about your own family's lives or health? That's low to be honest. How can you be so selfish, you don't even care whether your own family get it or not? What happened to your humanity? Where did it go? Like holy shit.And honey, COVID isn't a matter of opinion, it's a matter of science and you should be extremely worried given you're living in the worst affected country in the world! I wonder how the how the people who have actually lost their loved ones to this virus, or nearly died themselves would react if you told them this. I can't get over how much of how selfish you're being. Like damn.
It is just a virus. There have been so many other viruses out there and nobody gave a fuck about. But now that they labeled this shit a "pandemic" everyone wants to freak out and they turn to whatever special scientific facts that are out there. Not all facts are true, they're really all just someone's opinion. Unless you've tested things yourself then there is no way or acutally knowing what's real and fake. It doesn't mean I'm selfish, it means im not some gullible fuck that falls into fake news. I've litterally taken multiple us government classes about how to decode fake news and of what I have seen everything I'm seeing seems fake. If others want to bow down to special laws and think they're right about everything cause they watched some tv then that's cool for them but I ain't falling for it
🤦🏾♀️Wow. Wow."so many other viruses" haven't spread as rapidly as this, or have had as high a death rate as this, or has had as many cases as this. So, to sum it up, yes there have been plenty of other viruses, but those viruses haven't been as deadly as this. There are approximately 23 million cases around the world, approximately 800,000 deaths but thankfully approximately 16 million recoveries.And you've been taking fake news decoding classes?😂😂😂Wowwwwwww I really don't know what to say, you must be a formidable force- let the scientists step back, you take the stage and tell the whole of America your great wisdom and knowledge😂😂Firstly you can start with enlightening the USA and the global population that guess what guys? Not all facts are true! You know, despite the definition of fact being, "a thing that is known or proved to be true"😂"I'm not a gullible fuck, I took a fake news class!"😂😂😂Do you have any idea how fucking stupid you sound? Oh and US government isn't exactly a flex, with your leadership and choice for presidential candidates lol😂But please, keep talking I'm getting a good laugh out of you this evening- you're making my evening lmao😂😂
@SpiderManFan2002 there's a lot of people parading around pretending to be a good person. The people who insist on everyone wearing a mask to protect others are a shining example of that description. Apple1996 is right. It's just a virus, not any more contagious than the flu. Viruses don't just disappear. There's no question that covid is not nearly the problem that the media has insinuated.
@SpiderManFan2002 i was forced to take those types of classes because of my husband's job in the military. And thanks @Yep12345678
@Yep12345678 Lol it's more than just a flex about being a good person😂It's about a deadly virus which has infected over 23 million globally and the cases seem to increasing daily, in which we don't have a cure or vaccine for, and it's causing people to become extremely sick, most recover but a lot also die which is worrying.The coronavirus is actually much more contagious than the flu, since it seems to increasing at a rapid rate and we don't have a vaccine for it, unlike we have a vaccine for the flu. Viruses don't necessarily disappear, i. e. people still get the flu, but we have learned to handle the flu better, and there is a vaccine for it. COVID is far more deadly than the flu, and we don't have a vaccine for it!from 2018-2019 there was a total of 34,200 deaths due to the flu in the USA. That's in one year.The coronavirus has been in the USA for approximately 5-6 months, and there have been 180,851 deaths.Shouldn't those figures say everything to you? It's far more deadly than the flu.
@SpiderManFan2002 also, there's been thousands of unrelated deaths chalked up as covid because they tested positive. This whole situation is one big ruse , and all you people who have fallen for it are morons.
@SpiderManFan2002 these numbers dont mean anything. The majority of them are fake. If it was really that concerning of a virus everyone should be busy working on how to cure it and not be focusing on counting the numbers
@Yep12345678 Sources? Evidence? Proof? Thousands you say? Where? What did they really die of? What scientific evidence do you have to backup what you're saying?And yeah, you keep telling yourself that this situation is one big ruse, sure, you're right and the scientific evidence is wrong lol@Apple1996 Lol and you say you're not stupid😂There are many people working on a vaccine and attempting to try and find a cure, but saying that there are so many concerning things they haven't found a cure for, like cancer, and the flu and many are still working to find a cute for those things too.Of course gathered data from places such as the CDC is fake, that's probably what they taught in your fake news class that whatever bullshit they spew on Fox News is real, and places which study things in depth such as the CDC is fake😂😂
@SpiderManFan2002 😂speaking of the CDC, they have come right out and said masks do not provide protection from viruses.😂 Where is your evidence that all those deaths were from covid? Other than what you heard on TV 😂
@SpiderManFan2002 the class basically says any source is fake. There is no real place to trust. Only trust yourself and the people you know. And yeah there isn't cures for others things but that shouldn't mean people need to be scared to live. We only get one life and I'm not trying to have others scare me into not living life
@Yep12345678 😂Well you must be reading "CDC: Fox News Edition" because that's not what they said😂😂www.cdc.gov/.../diy-cloth-face-coverings.htmlLol, I'm getting my information from sources based on science, like WHO, the CDC, the NHS etc. Now where are you getting your information from?😂😂Genius😂
@SpiderManFan2002 the only info I've trusted is the info my doctors gave me when my husband had it. Other then that I'm not reading anything online or watching any news for info. I already stated that I only trust sources of people that I see in my day to day life. Nothing media based is real info
@Apple1996 Except places like WHO, the CDC, The NHS, aren't "media" they're organisations which base their information and what they convey to the public, off of science.And actually, when the media has an expert come on, i. e. a virologist, it's quite wise to listen to what they say, given they are people who dedicate a lot of time to studying viruses.

You seem to forget the the people you mention in the end may be going somewhere and they prefer to put the mask on at home with clean hands.
@emmily2396 You mean the same people fidgeting with their masks constantly, and then touching everything else? (Obviously, washing your hands and sanitizing them with personal packets of gel or wipes when you somehow cannot get to soap and water is a good idea.)
People should do whatever the fuck they want as long as they aren't harming anyone else. Th fact the choose to put them mask at home doesn't affect you. If that is more comfortable to them why should they change?
There are plenty in Germany, too. :(
Anti intellectualism movement? Haha. The mask represents pointless civil obedience.
Love your response 👏 👌 👍
To them the world is America. The rest of the globe doesn't matter. That's how they can believe bullshit like that.
We should put gauze underneath wire mesh on the front of a mask like this:for people who refuse to wear them.
You probably had breathing issues beforehand. You're just being manipulated
Yep I did, and covid has made them so much worse! You're just being selfish.
In what way am I being selfish? The mask is merely a false sense of security. And represents pointless civil obedience.
If you're refusing to wear one, spreading this bullshit online, refusing to acknowledge the shit this virus has caused for others and instead saying they're manipulated. It's all selfish.It's not false. You can watch videos of people coughing with & without masks and see the stark difference they cause. If they didn't protect against anything, doctors and other medical providers wouldn't wear them while treating patients, they provide security against large droplets that could contain a virus. Simple as that.
Masks are designed to be worn no longer than 30 minutes. Having one on all day, and particularly reusing them actually has quite the opposite effect of intended. The CDC has come right out and said masks do not prevent the spread of anything. No, you're right. I'm sure you know better.

Got to be an American. Other nationalities aren't that overtly stupid and so proud of it.
@Clo917 hope you're feeling better soon ❤️
@Goodwifie thank you! :)
Nobody is fucked with covid. The whole thing is fabricated
@Yep12345678 Please, kindly seek help. I believe your mother might have dropped you.
@Yep12345678 I hope none of your family or friends contract it and die because you're a fucking idiot
@angeliquedevereux2 I think she did more than just drop him, what a fool!
Thanks. They won't. And no one you know will either. At least I'm capable of thinking for myself, unlike you two mindless drones that believe everything the media spoon-feeds you.
I mean, they already have. 'Capable of thinking for myself' does that translate to 'I'm an idiot that probably does what Donald Trump says and injects bleach' You fucking idiot 😂
if YOUR mask works so damn well then why does it matter if someone else isn't wearing one?
No it means exactly what it sounds like. I form my own opinions regarding everything. YOU are the fucking idiot.
@phatdrummer650 Because it's dick heads like you that think they're ok when they're not, who will pass it on to someone else who could potentially die, I just hope it's non you YOUR family. Idiot.
Idiots swearing is funny, makes you look more of a twat. Enjoy your day.
FYI, I wear a mask everywhere I go. I was only asking the question. 😤
The people that are sick (covid) shouldn't be outside of their homes AT ALL, unless they are in Hospital.I would expect water rides to be chlorinated, but don't quote me on that. The point is that you can't cough/sneeze on everything if you're a carrier so you can't spread it. If you think your enjoyment of a ride is more important than decreasing the threat to life...
@jack187625 that's besides the point. As I've stated, if you're that worried stay home and let others enjoy. If they were going to open placed like that with all of these restrictions, they might as well have kept it closed
Unfortunately, people have these little things called lives? They need to go to work, need to go shopping etc and as it doesn't show symptoms for a week, you have no idea if you have it.
@jack187625 ok? We were just talking about an amusement park right, were we not? If you have an issue with it then wear a mask
Sorry, I forgot that they were fully automated these days and have no employees what so ever, what and idiot I am.
Maybe you're the braindead moronic piece of shit
Nope, I'm pretty sure you are.
I know right? Protecting yourself and others from a deadly virus that is globally spread and completemy shuts down your system is so moronic. Fuck peoples safety.
@angeliquedevereux2 oh it's so deadly, but you have to be tested to know if you have it. What a joke
Haha really? Wearing a mask does not make you a good person. What a crock of shit
Hey. It's my opinion, not saying it's incontrovertible fact. And again, it's not that wearing a mask implies you're a good person. You could be a total as shoe wearing it for self preservation. It's that NOT wearing one makes you an asshole with no empathy for those around you. And I stand by that.
And here is a link of a antibacterial mask created on purpose against the covid. mo-online.com/.../Home.html
@ThisIsMyOpinion Please show me in English where it says that these masks GUARANTY that you will not receive Covid-19 please
@ThisIsMyOpinion I can not find anywhere where it says that you are GUARANTEED to not get Covid-19 by wearing this mask. Also, I want to see where it says that breathing back 60% carbon dioxide that you exhale is good for your health.
It does not grantee that you don't caught it. But it does prevent it way WAY more than if you don't use anything.Also the amount of CO2 that you breath in www.google.com/.../%3foutputType=amp
Quick note, the mask is made mostly for virus hosts to not spread it. If you have the virus and don't know it, which during the initial stages is common, you can pass it on to a LOT of people. But if the host uses a mask he will contaminate a much lower number.
@laurieluvsitI actually actually agree with the person... And I can explain it to you in simple ways if u promise to be with me on this and ask him at some place u have a doubt... Just trying to help cause in some ways it can become a serious issue, maybe not for u given how healthy u might be, but for some loved ones who might not be as fortunate...
*ask if at any place you have a doubt... 🙂
And also, as to why it says so on the box...
Hey! @ThisIsMyOpinion I m unable to actually put links cause of my exp. Points.. So, can I DM u the videos I think they will cover all the points u r trying to highlight in a much more friendly/fun way! That u can maybe take help of telling to others.. I tried DMing u the links but couldn't! If u want, I can just letting u know.. :)
Does a seatbelt come with a promise that if you wear it you will not be killed in an accident? Or an airbag?
Well surgical masks never offered a 100% guarantee of protection. It even says other viruses and contaminants. Yet surgeons have been using it for years. Why would surgeons bother if it had "no effect"?Study after study is showing that there is benefits to wearing it. How people cannot grasp this is beyond me.
@Capes honestly I don't have much will to be sharing videos here. People are very attached to their own idea about this. Especially americans. But you can do something like "www. whateversiteyouwant. com" give the ". com" a space so it doesn't count as a link but anyone will still be able to go and see it.
Hey I understand! But it's worth it for the few who might!! Seriously, this is actually a serious problem now especially for the ones who are at the highest risks... I m not at all one of them, but I don't like ignorance is all... :)
Ya.. but that would be too much work ig, compared to having them posted up!
For the ones who would watch I mean
the reasoning behind that is that the virus can live on solid surfaces for a while though using hand santizer and keeping your whell and shifter sanitized makes more sense than possibly impeding vision while driving
@update and just so you know the term covidiots is at least outside of america, used to describe those idiots who still claim it to be a hoax... ironic how you called the user that had covid an idiot on here whilst still refusing to accept wearing a mask is at least better than playing russian roulette
You are supposed to take the mask out of the plastic wrapper first.
@Daniela1982 🤣I'll keep that in mind thank you
Lemme guess without looking, you're from the US?
@acooke-13 Let me guess without looking: You're not a doctor or a nurse or any kind of healthcare professional, you're not even a candy-striper. You didn't even get a good grade in that one human anatomy class you took.Also, I did take a quick look at your profile and I saw that you're from the UK, so let me guess without looking, you live in or near London, you have a boyfriend, and he's from Pakistan, and you don't know it, but he has other girlfriends too, and most of them are under 13. Good so far, yeah?
Well the experts (being surgeons, nurses and doctors) wear them. Then 'jumping of the bridge' in mask terms, I think I will follow.
@Chriscunning They wear them at work because they have to or they'll get fired, none of them are wearing masks outside of work because they all know a mask doesn't do shit against virus-sized particles. All of the doctors pretending to be experts on the news are political hacks who haven't treated a patient in 20 years or more, if ever, and they're not taking the masks too seriously either:The WHO (World Health Organization) says there's no need for people to wear masks in public. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) says there's no need to wear a mask in public.The AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) says there's no need for masks in public.The AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nurses) says there's no need for masks in public.The fucking warning label on the box that the masks come in says right there in fine print that their masks do not provide suitable protection against Covid-19 or other viruses.The only "experts" telling people to wear masks in public are talking heads on the news who are just barely educated enough to read off a teleprompter. That's why I think you're kind of dumb for listening to them and swallowing whatever they say, hook, line, and sinker, without bothering to do even five minutes of basic research to see if they're just straight-up fucking lying right to your face. Spoiler alert, that's exactly what they're doing. Just lying for attention so they can sell more ad revenue. Keep people scared so they keep watching the news.
@Bananaman177 So the doctors I refer to run their own private practices. I highly doubt they would fire themselves for not wearing a mask.As for "experts". We can't now go and claim WHO, CDC, etc. advise against it, when we refuting what "experts" do.Besides WHO said Covid is not a pandemic until hospitals became overwhelmed, then decided to call it a pandemic. Now we quoting them as "experts". And if we going to jump down the road of "doctors will be fired", AAPS, AACN probably all used the same memo of rules that CDC passed around without doing their own research.As for the WHO, they have changed their stance on wearing masks (https://www. webmd. com/lung/news/20200608/who-changes-stance-says-public-should-wear-masks).
@Chriscunning Was that before or after Trump announced he would stop funding them?
@Bananaman177 I am not sure. But if Trump can influence WHO, and I fairly confident that CDC, AAPS, etc. would also be influenced.
@Chriscunning The reason he threatened to cut off funding was because they were caught withholding information about the Corona Virus in January of 2019 at the request of the Chinese government and their actions allowed the virus to spread much further and faster and kill more people across the globe because of it. Even the Japanese Prime Minister accused them of acting as the Chinese Health Organization instead of the World Health Organization.You probably didn't hear anything about this since it wasn't on CNN.
@Bananaman177 Oh look I definitely agree the Chinese withheld a lot of information. WHO is a massive disappointment in my opinion.But we shouldn't detract from the fact that if Trump could influence an organization, that he could influence any others.
sadly this is true... in the uk when it was made compulsory to wear them in shops it seemed to act as an excuse for people to no longer socially distance
Idiot number one
Obviously you're from the US
@acooke-13 I believe it to be influence of their clown ass president.
i can see why you say that but watch the vid on my post... you are in a higher risk group so thats the very reason you need to wear a mask as horrible as that is... if you really can't wear one i would advise obviously going out as little as possible but when you do, maybe wear a small sign saying mask exempt to avoid people being alarmed by you not wearing one... i really do think bojo should have issued something similar through our doctors to save the confusion
@wankiam I can't catch the virus faster than a normal person.When I was little due to side effect of vaccination I developed tuberculosis twice and that damaged my lungs. So when I get sick or stressed it can be anything even laughing too much onsets a asthma attack.
i get that... the problem is ofcourse if you did get it, you would be less likely to survive... i saw another user with asthma saying she would rather not take that risk
@wankiam it doesn't make me catch it faster than average personAnd my asthma gets triggered a lot by wearing the mask , I feel scared to take it off though
you said that first line twice now which makes me think you are misundertanding what im saying... clearly if you socially distance and wear a mask like almost all other brits you are at no more risk of catching covid or catching it faster as you put it but what i am saying is that if you did get it you would sadly be less able to ''shrug'' it off like most healthy people so it isn't worth the risk of not wearing a mask, as uncomfortable as that may be
@wankiam you aren't understanding the mask itself causes me asthma attacks
yeh i get that which is why i imagine you are still better off shielding but as im trying to get across, as horrible as an asthma attack is its surely better than dying on a ventilater due to corona... if i was you i would certainly be shielding still as much as possible and then you wouldn't have to wear a mask in the first place... also i upvoted you because the question is asking if its stupid to wear a mask and even you that hates wearing one seemed to appreciate it isn't infact stupid as the asker is implying
@wankiam thanks for the upvote but I wear it mostly because I don't have money to pay fines and I don't like being harassed by other peopleAsthma attacks are horrible, they feel like death itself, I have no idea what a ventilator feels like.
worse from what im told and like i said you could wear a badge thing to say you are exempt but really if i was you i would get the old man to go to asda
@wankiam I don't really have anyone that can do stuff for me. So I just do it myself, some times I ask my husband but I don't want to burden him.. he works a lot and gets tired.
sorry to hear that...
@wankiam that's okay 🙂 thanks
i guess you are in that forgotten group of people that could still do with a little help whilst the rest of the country is acting like its all over... it might be worth a search online though to see if any help is still available locally
@wankiam I did, there's nothing really. Hopefully it all gets better soon. 🙂
im sorry to hear that and i hope so too
@wankiam thanks 🙂
Who cares what people say. Tell them to mind their fucking business. I've gone somewhere and have waited for someone to say something directly to me... that's how people get killed, not minding their business
