    As already explained, a face shield isn't meant to filter air you inhale, its to stop larger fluid particles from landing on your eyes, nose, and mouth.

    Sort of like how gloves protect your hands from blood, but they don't stop blood from entering your eyes. That's not because gloves are ineffective, that's just not what they're designed to do.

    I know you will continue to pretend not to understand the distinction, but that's ok.

    Not necessarily, I got braced, well, indirectly. Karen complained to the grocery manager I was talking to.

    How long are you going to wear that mask and (useless) face shield? The rest of your life?

    You, me, and everyone else are going to get Coronavirus at one point or another. You can't run and hide from it, anywhere on this planet. It's inevitable. It WILL catch up to you.

    No way man...

    if you stay terrified, fear is a natural repellent of covid and other Corona viruses. Just stay scared, you'll never, ever, ever get sick again.

    Are you drunk? Pandemics end. The masks will go away. And there is nothing to suggest that everyone is going to get C-19. Statistically absurd and totally incongruent with a long history of known public health data.

    I’m not sure this is exactly the case.
    First face bras DO contain the larger particles that fly out of your mouth when you speak. The invisible particles that accompany the large particles, not so much.

    The whole, “ask your surgeon not to wear a face bra.” Is silly, not directed at you only, lots and lots of people spout this off. What the masks are intended to stop are bacteria, not viruses. Bacteria are much larger than viruses. There is a whole host of other measures taken in that OR than just masks and sterile techniques.

    I never stated the face shield would filter anything. Stores, Dr.'s offices, and hospitals require a face covering. Face shield fills the bill. YMMV

    Could be. But I'm not everybody. Everybody didn't get the Spanish Flu.

    Even with diseases that have super high R0 factors, not everyone gets it.

    It's really astonishing how readily flippant people are willing to be with absolute diarrhea of the mouth one this subject.

    And it's like the more absurd thing a person says the more virtuous their position. And anyone who points out the absurdity of an outlandish statement is suddenly on the opposite side of the fence.

    I'm 100% for opening everything up and sending all kids back to school but to listen to people, who have ZERO grasp on infectious disease, blab the most inane drivel is enough to make my eyes roll right out of my head.

    Probably just as effective as the current face diapers everyone wears :)

    I haven't worn a face shield, even while intubating.

    That doesn't mean I can't understand how they work though.

    Also, strong pivot, lol.

    A gal comes in from time to time she said her job required these lately. She works in the Porn industry. And after the first shots she said they just wash them off and reuse again.

    And many of her co workers. now call it like Blowing outa Birthday cake!
