    Would you expose yourself to the flu if you could? So far we know of no lasting immunity to the Wu-Flu.

    After studying the site I listed I'm not sure if they will interchange. I have enough doubt that I sent an inquiry to one of my suppliers. When I get the answer I'll pass along the info.

    Thanks! That would be great! That would open the door for me to be able to use any brand with a bayonet connection.

    Uh, not particularly no. I guess if I wanted 2 weeks off from work maybe?

    Therein lies the problem. How long does immunity last? Does this virus do long term damage to people that may not show up for years? Way too many unanswered questions about this virus.

    The sheer randomness and range of how it affects people is quite concerning.

    I will do my best not to catch this. I was tested for the antibody last week at the donor center. Negative result.

    Or possibly a lot longer.

    Ten people came down with COVID 19 symptoms at a local doctor’s office. Four wound up in the hospital. The doctor wound up in ICU. Fortunately all have since recovered.

    This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this happening. Did she have any known comorbidities?

    That's a rough road to deal with.

    Healthy middle aged lady as far as I know. On their facebook page it stated she had no health issues. Heartbreaking, really.

    OK, I received a reply to my question of whether 3M, MSA, North and Honeywell filters will interchange with the others mask. It was not what I had hoped for. Short answer is no. I have copied their reply below.

    No, all filters are manufacturer specific to the mask. They are not made to be interchangeable and trying to adapt a different manufacturer filter to a different mask is not OSHA compliant, and would not function properly. This would be dangerous because it is not properly filtering out the hazard.

    Well crap! But thanks for the information. I guess everyone’s bayonet connection is different.

    I would think that OSHA would insist on standardization.

    Looks like the only connection standardized is 40 mm. gas mask connection.

    One would think that wouldn't you. I guess the mask makers have to protect their sales.

    Since the military is a big end consumer of not only the CBRN masks but the filters I suspect they demanded a standard thread/mount on the masks they use.

    I think if you are seriously considering infecting yourself your brain is already damaged

    The news was talking about a way to test a vaccine could include purposefully trying to infect the volunteer. Basically come inhale covid 19. It would greatly speed up the trials.

    The normal way is two groups one gets the vaccine one gets a placebo. They go live their lives and over a somewhat long period of time see if the vaccinated group ends up infected less. With falling infection rates what if almost nobody from either group gets infected?

    As long as they are volunteers and know what they are agreeing to so be it. I would also be okay offering money to volunteers as long as the science is still valid. Don’t want people lying to get in and get a check.
