    I don’t think you could have been a better advocate on GT for mask wearing if you tried.

    Just me or does the poll and the posts seem to contradict each other?

    So as a medical expert you are telling the audience people cannot be asymptotic and have other types of flu.
    Three-quarters of people with flu have no symptoms
    Monday 17 March 2014

    A simple search shows your medical expertise is flawed.

    But extrapolating your logic, we should be wearing masks everyday, ever year, 365 days a year.

    I struggle with making links for GT, so here is the article if you want to read it.

    Erin Bromage “The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them”

    It makes get be a blog, if that makes a difference. And if this is the wrong article, I don’t care anymore.

    ASYMPTOMATIC SPREADING.

    Nobody said you can't have the flu and be asymptomatic.

    We're talking about shedding the virus.

    Asymptomatic flu carriers don't appear to do that. Whereas asymptomatic covid carriers do.

    Anybody impressed with my patience?

    50K is many. But 100K + 50K is waay too many and it is not even mid-year yet.
    Please wear a mask where and when needed and sanitize your hands often.

    We are all waiting, when “only” 50,000 a year die from the flu do we wear masks or not? I will assume no, that 50,000 is acceptable but once you have a new virus the masks come out.

    You make Job look like a piker.


    have the patience of Job
    To have an immense and unyielding degree of patience and conviction, especially in the face of problems or difficulty. A reference to the biblical figure Job, whose absolute faith in God remained unshaken despite the numerous afflictions set upon himself, his family, and his estate by Satan.

    I broke my own norms by not fully reading the thread before commenting. I actually nearly always do so. I read through about page 5 and gave up.

    After sooooooo many mask threads I am literally just shaking my head at the vitriol brought out when the word "mask" is said.

    It was at least a month ago in the endless virus thread that someone posted an interview with the top dog in the South Korean health response to this virus. He speculated that wearing masks was a cultural issue rather than science. I believe him. Sometimes Americans are just stupid.

    I would surmise at least 50% of the posters in this thread are stupid, and the rest agree with me :)

    Yes. A new virus with no available vaccine and no effective and thoroughly safe treatment as of yet(?).

    May 28, 3:05 p.m. The City of San Francisco is now requiring that individuals wear masks whenever they leave their homes and interact with people outside their households.

    But you can crap on the sidewalk, no problem.

    So the medical experts here say that individuals with the regular flu exhibiting no symptoms cannot spread the flu to others. Amazing how (CDC stat) 9 to 26 million people get the flu each year with zero transmission from people that do not show symptoms.

    Needs masks every day every year according to the stats.
    But as we see 100,000 is a tragedy and 50,000 is just a statistic

    You may have read it. You didn't understand it.

    The juice in your debate has run dry when name calling becomes the only point you can make. If we wear a mask, regardless of the reasoning, we are sheep. That’s weak, Rocky.

    The logic here is.......if a mask is required now....it is required every year every day. Unless you are saying 50,000 a year dead from the “regular” flu is acceptable.

    Forgot the most important point. Those in control of government are transforming our society into a bubbling, jelly filled, mewling glob of citizens. From now on if 10 people fart sideways those in control will be shutting the economy down to make us all “safe”.
    Some of you need to get out and look and see how our economy, society, and country has been irreversibly damaged.
    But if we wear a friggin mask it will be all better.
