i think that if you use a mask it will be even more dangerous because if you while leaving the mask or while wearing the mask you risk to touch your face with dirty hands and get sick that way i think too that a good reason to wear a mask is when you think you have the virus so in that case that prevent the spreadingabout the eyes i remember that is not the primary way of trasmission of the virus but maybe i am wrongso i agree with you at the end of the day social distancing and hygiene are the best way but a mask is a plus to protect others even if you think you have not get virus becaouse some case are with no symptomso if you can wear a mask if you can't just be careful , What do you think?
And if I don't have the Corona or sick at all then I have no risk of spreading anything so there for no need to "protect" others. If anyone feels they need to then go ahead there is no judgment from me
Say that when your fave get all moist because of wearing the mask, I only wear one when I am in a store, not because I want a protection but because I don't want to bother other people
For me it is easy even when I go to the store. I stay as far away as possible I dont touch my face and I was my hands regularly worked so far
It protects others.
@VIVANT I'm not talking about others! I am only referring to my own logic. I can't speak for anyone else but myself and I say, those mask things are unnecessary. This is my honest opinion!!!
It’s necessary for everyone to be responsible towards each other. It isn’t a matter of opinion, that is how species survive. Accountability towards fellow human beings, it’s “necessary“. I’m just responding to you saying it is unnecessary. I understand you don’t wish to do it.
@VIVANT You're coming to the wrong person with this! I'm not optimistic, if that's what you think! And I'm certainly not a people person either. I could care less about society or the safety of others... As a matter of fact, I hate people in general. But the question was about a face mask! Not about showing affection and sympathy or about our body health, so I'm not gonna get into that stuff.

Further, as other posters said, many masks don't block microbes, but since many robots react, without any effort needed to research, understand choice, reason, or think independently, many do, often blindly, whatever entertainers and public figures tell them.
@chris0977If it was just for the Us the percentage woulbe higher than you said but still less than one thenth of a percent. 170000 ÷ 300000000 = 0.00056666666666667 = 0.056666666666667%
@MysteriousDarkness I've been telling many who argue the only epidemic, especially in the US, is ignorance, most react, repeat, like they're taught over many years in school to do, whatever authority tells them, and only react, without reflection, thought, analysis, or effort to think independently, or understand context, even if it's less than 30 seconds of basic math, with a calculator.
Furthermore, it is pointless unless I was sick myself.
I do want this shit to end my bad lol
As @worldscolide said, there is little evidence to suggest they effective at stopping the spread and most commercially available ones are only really designed to filter dust particulates. If you want to effectively reduce transmission, make sure you wash hands after touching surfaces other people have touched, sterilise surfaces and cough/sneeze into a tissue before binning it.
To prevent others from getting sick. You can have it without knowing ~unless you are getting tested every day.
@VIVANT so even though I never leave, I don't have a job, I'm not around people and I'm loner who keeps to themselves, you're telling me I have this virus but don't know it even though I never leave, even before this all started?
Forgot one more, I do not need to look cool and fashionable on antisocial media...
@Daniel3035You can have the virus without having symptoms
THANK YOU!! I was just going to type something like this!!! Nice to see there is still SOME decent people on this earth!
Nope. See @worldscollide answer
😂😂😂 you people are so gullible, you guys will believe anything that the media tells you LOL 😂😂😂
@simplelikeme I follow the science. I suggest you do the same.
I'm just curious Michael where are you getting your science information from?
The manufacturer specifications of the masks. They primarily stop dust particulates, not microbes.As for how the virus is transmitted, then that would be the WHO.
Ok... your eyes can absorb the virus just as easily as your nose or your mouth. So how come we are not required to wear eye protection? Even your skin can absorb pathogens. I was a fireman and I was also certified in first aid. They teach you this stuff.
I think you seem to think I am in favour of everyone using masks. I have clearly said that the masks are largely ineffective. That's what the evidence suggests. That is why people still don't wear them, not because the outbreak is a hoax. As for protecting your eyes, that is also why medical professionals have warned against putting unwashed hands anywhere near your mouth, nose or eyes. As for wearing eye protection, you could if you wanted to, but how impractical do you want to make normal life? Certain pathogens can transmit of skin contact, but there is no evidence to suggest Covid-19 can - unless through open wounds.
The filtering mechanism they use is not fine enough to catch the virus before it gets to you.
What percent of the population do you imagine are already infected and what is your rational for your beliefs? Using your state as an example, 0.3% of your population has tested positive so far. Due to lack of testing it is likely higher than that, but not necessarily substantially higher than that. The place were you’d see the most bias and skewed percentages of your population would be in individuals that present with symptoms and only 28.3% of those people in your state have tested positive so it’s definitely far less that that in Michigan. If it the people had already been infected and were asymptomatic they would still show in those testing numbers even if they just had the flu afterwards. If you look at a state like Wyoming 0.05% of their population has tested positive with only 4.2% of tests coming back positive. The percentage of the US population that has been infected up to this point is very very low right now. Maybe several percent. How ever the properties of the virus will push it to infect 75-86% of the population if it isn’t managed well.
Social distancing does a better job than a mask.
Not quite. It's transferred in aerosols, but not directly just through air. Surface contact is more dangerous. It can live on plastic surfaces for up to 5 days. That's why cleaning surfaces is more effective than masks.
Yes. The science was that the aeresols were unlikely to travel more than 6 feet hence why they have 2m social distancing. And if you pick the virus up on your skin it still needs to be introduced to your mouth or nose to become a problem. You can wash your hands to kill the virus.Wearing a mask can agitate your face causing you to touch your face more and increase the likelyhood of you becoming infected.
