We can argue all day. Masks face sheilds give very minimal protections..lol....im not tryin to be a dick.You need to smoke better weed, dude. Really. The infamous "They" created it? Talk about conspiracies. Talk down masks and gloves all you want. You obviously do not have a clue. I get my information from the informed medical community, not hysterical posts like yours. It started in China, yes. Wuhan to be exact. In a wet market or a biomedical weapons lab. Either way, it is here to stay. As for wearing masks and gloves and face shields? THEY ARE EFFECTIVE. Do not belive me? I do not care. For others that want to be more enlightened, and reduce their risk of exposure and lessen the effects if they are exposed.... I recommend this video posted on YouTube by the University of California Department of Medicine at San Fransisco. Yes, I know that Medicine/Science + Politics = Politics. But if you want to know the science behind it... watch this, by real world medical experts in the field of virus transmission. (oh no, they are the same "they" that created the virus! Not...)
If you want the Cliff Notes: Covid-19 virus receptors are in your eyes, nose and mouth, as well as your lungs. Exposure to lower doses of this virus reduce the chance of your having a serious infection and death than higher doses. This is a well established fact with these types of virus. Thus masks, gloves, eye wear and face shields are all effective in reducing exposure to Covid-19 and will most likely lead to more mild or asymptomatic cases if you are exposed. Masks reduce both the virus being shed by asymptomatic cases, and they reduce your chances of contracting the virus and/or getting a larger dose of virus causing more severe symptoms. N-95 masks reduce your exposure rate up to 90% of breathing in virus. Cloth and common surgical masks reduce exposure up to about 60%. Face shields and eye protection also reduce virus exposure, but the percentages are not as yet known as to the rate of reduction. They do not recommend using face masks with one way valves. Eye protection is recommended along with washing hands and/or wearing gloves both of which will almost always reduce your exposure to any virus. There is debate as to the main cause of transmission, but it is believed through comparisons with other virus and bacterial diseases that the main spread is through direct contact with droplets in the air and contact with surfaces through your hands and subsequent contact with your hands to your face. As for virus longevity on surfaces and in the air, that has yet to be nailed down. But the tests that they use for that now do not differentiate between non-infections virus parts and viable virus that can cause infection. Oh, and an increase to about 40% of cases seen now are asymptomatic. Death rates are coming down in part from more people wearing masks and in part from better medical care. Believe it or not!
In the mid 80's dr's in a surgical unit took their masks of before surgery to see if patients would have negative reactions...they rarely did. They actually recovered faster...lol..
The study looked back the last 4 years before it was conducted. In the same time frame as well. Lol. There was close to a 50% decrease in negative outcomes during recovery...lmfao...this is facts not bungled science...not lies!! Truth....n95 masks do not stop viruses...lol....hell no!! Unless you've got a seal 100% around the outside of your face/mouth...facts are facts!! I work in the healthcare field and dealt with over 20 covid patient's....droplets in the air...their not really droplets. More a very very fine mist when coughed out and expelled from the lungs. DO YOU THINK GOGGLES ARE GOING TO STOP IT. DO YOU THINK A FACE DIAPER IS GOING TO DO ANYTHING SERIOUS TO STOP THE SPREAD? NOPE!! The tests they use are bullshit!! Gtfo! Total bullshit..pcr tests for covid are a scam. Cdc came out and said the tests arent as accurate. One pcr test test for a string of genes that are found in the 8th chromosome of every human on earth....lol...people will believe anything!! Fear is great tool....if they were so worried about this unkown virus why send infected people to nursing homes enmasse?
Two ?'s for you....
1. What causes covid 19?
2. When did sars cov 2 first get isolated?
