    Not true.

    They added masks to the charade at the end.



    All of you with very little medical knowledge/training have proven your stance and clearly won't budge from your viewpoints. Your belief structures are too invested in your confirmation bias to look at any material outside of what you already believe.

    Your qi is overly invested in defending what you see from sources outside of yourself.


    And I will always defend your freedom of speech and honor you as a human beings.

    Be well.

    I guess facts will not bother you
    but still

    Professor Shibuya does not discount the possibility of regional differences in immunity or genetic susceptibility to Covid. But he is suspicious of the idea of a "Factor X" that explains the mortality differences.

    He thinks countries that have done well in the fight against Covid, have done so for the same reason - they succeeded in dramatically reducing transmission.

    Japanese people began wearing face masks more than 100 years ago during the 1919 flu pandemic and they've never really stopped. If you get a cough or a cold here it is expected that you will don a mask to protect those around you.

    "I think it (a mask) acts as a physical barrier. But it also serves as a reminder to everybody to be mindful. That we still have to be careful around each other," says Keiji Fukuda, an influenza specialist and director of the School of Public Health at Hong Kong University.

    Japan's track and trace system also goes back to the 1950s when it battled a wave of tuberculosis. The government set up a nationwide network of public health centres to identify new infections and report them to the health ministry.

    If community transmission is suspected, a specialist team is dispatched to track the infections, relying on meticulous human contact tracing and isolation.

    The British Brainwashing Company is no different than CNN.

    Because it’s a normality to wear a mask when you’re sick there!!!

    I never blamed anyone for their opposing views, I blamed them for their nasty responses and attitudes while they gave the opposing view.

    Remember that it was once illegal to hide a Jew when they were killing Jews.
    Remember it was once illegal to hide a slave when slavery was "legal" and (at the time) subjectively moral.
    Remember too that it was illegal during segregation era to support black folks and their causes.

    Now it's illegal to not** wear masks and you're considered hateful just because of that opposed view. This isn't a quarantine.. .quarantine is for sick people, this is what's called house arrest. They've been building interstate loops around cities for years to "quarantine" in case of an emergency, for the health and safety of all....

    The nearest small sized city to me has issued mask mandates what I like to call "too little too late mandate" as the virus had supposedly plagued the area the whole time, yet here we are months later and some businesses never stopped running... I've seen pictures of people online dining in places where they all like to brag what they had for lunch... yet now, months later, all the sudden it's okay still for restaurants to do dine-in without masks worn, but if you're going to the bathroom, or coming in or leaving, then you need a mask and that's suppose to work somehow after 5/6 months of not doing it.

    I just went to the city twice the other day, and come in contact with an elderly lady to help her (because no one else would help her it seemed) and I'm fine, she's fine... I know no one personally who has it and only heard of one other person who tested positive who's fine now 2 months past (a baby).

    In this area, cops, emt, judges, prosecutors and military is what brought it to the area. It seems too political to be a plague when it's new, no one knows much about it, except it comes in waves, and oh yeah they pretend they know everything else about it too..... then the cameras shut off and they go back to "normal" without masks and without pretending everything's suppose to be a fear.

    Kids can't go to school without fear of getting sick, while they normalize letting out violent criminals who go and kill people at random.... at random is what the news tells you but it's all planned, those people shouldn't be out of jail and I know someone who's sick in jail and they won't let him get a decent meal, a phone call, treatment (only a single tylonel) so if this is real they aren't treating it like it, and only people involved in politics seem to get the virus.

    And I'm not giving you a free consultation, you'll have to pay and answer a lot of personal privacy invading questions for me to even answer your rhetoric.

    Someone whom thinks she'll get respect by using profanity and wearing mirrored welding helmet googles? Selling real estate? What a hero! Oh boy.
    Not only have we lost it, we've also lost the meaning of "hero".

    What r u trying to accomplish there, Frank? Are these the people that command your respect? Please, elaborate..

    Visualizing Speech-Generated Oral Fluid Droplets with Laser Light Scattering

    Although is very basic to understand, here is a very visual video showing the amount of Aerosols and droplets generated during speech.

    This is a question of public health that not only concerns to one person, but to everybody around that person. And as it concerns and depends the health of everybody around you, please, use the f*king mask and cover your mouth when you are in public with others, to not infect everybody around you.

    Widespread Face Mask Use Could Control Second Wave

    June 10, 2020 - The widespread wearing of face masks -- even homemade ones -- could go a long way toward reducing coronavirus transmission rates and might help control a second wave of the virus, according to a British study released Wednesday.

    Scientists from Cambridge and Greenwich universities said stay-at-home orders aren’t enough to stop the spread of the coronavirus. But when lock-down periods are combined with 100% face mask use, “there is vastly less disease spread, secondary and tertiary waves are flattened and the epidemic is brought under control,” said the study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A.

    17 years ago I was on a ventilator and in a coma for five days.

    I know what it is like from experience.


    Since I woke up I healed myself from chronic issues and I have never been to the ER ever again.

    Any microbiologist or scientist in that field can tell you that a virus can not live or reproduce on its own, viruses need a reservoir of other living beings in order to survive, whether that reservoir consists of animals or human beings, any action on our side that can reduce the size of that reservoir or that can eliminate it completely needs to be given top priority globally.

    IMO

    Numerous Texas Sheriffs Vow To Not Enforce 'Draconian' Mask Rule

    https://www.westernjournal.com/numerous-texas-sheriffs-vow-not-enforce-draconian-mask-rule/


    “The order is not a law, there is no requirement that any police officer enforce it, and it’s unenforceable,”

    Houston Police Officers’ Union President Joe Gamaldi posted about the mask mandate on Twitter, describing it as “draconian.”


    TEXANS CAN COLLECTIVELY TAKE SOME DEEP BREATHS OF FRESH AIR.
