It is extremely simple for you to use this mask and nearly impossible to mess up. The doctors who told you this 3 months back were ill informed and blatantly lying. It is super easy to put on, the half mask version is a bit trickier, but once you understand it correctly it takes 5 seconds. You aren't touching anywhere even close to your mouth and nose anyway and the seal is super easy to maintain even as you re-position the mask for comfort.

the answer is yes you can become infected at nearly all viral loads and through your eyes. The difference is that smaller viral loads tend to produce higher survival rates.sparkaction wrote: ↑ Covid can enter your body through your eyes but can the situation result in a high enough viral load to become infected. If your walking by someone who is infected and wearing a regular mask, I doubt you’ll get Covid. This mask is overkill unless someone coughs or sneezes into your face.

Yea, P100 filters are higher efficiency than N95 (95 vs 99.97% efficiency at 0.3 microns) and are oil-proof.

You are wrong on this dude.
Respiratory droplet transmission can occur when a person is in close contact (within 1 metre) with an infected person who has respiratory symptoms (e.g. coughing or sneezing) or who is talking or singing; in these circumstances, respiratory droplets that include virus can reach the mouth, nose or eyes of a susceptible person and can result in infection

I'm not even going to bother reading what you're posting because at this point I am an expert on the matter. You can look at my post history to see i was the first person on RFD to request coronavirus deals and was mocked for it. Similarly, today, you are being equally inane.Dunderhead wrote: ↑ You are wrong on this dude.

And you are also wrong about the BLM protests.

If the BLM protests were responsible, then why didn't cases spike in Minnesota or NYC?

Your tears after lubricating are drained into your nasal cavity (through the lacrimal drainage system beginning with the upper and lower puncta).

So eye protection is a necessity, as there is no air currents or lungs creating negative pressure for suction, it may not be as viable but when you are walking you don't need suction to gather minute particulate onto your eyes, which eventually would drain into your nasal cavity.

My main criticism is that as it currently stands we have not flattened the curve, rather, we have decided (try) to prevent the curve from forming in the first place. This means there will never be herd immunity for covid. Literally never. In other words, people will have to wait for the vaccine to come out for this to be over. People will stop caring about covid progressively because people aren't patient. If you take the example of New zealand, it is one of the rare areas wherein the cases actually did go to 0. They imported a few cases and now they're at 27. It is to note that New Zealand is an island as well as mostly white.

This is top tier "/IAmSoSmart" materialnUseBro wrote: ↑ I have been right about covid literally every step of the way. I got my mask in January and predicted literally everything that happened up until today. I can confidently talk about the disease without sources. The touching your eyes thing is an obvious meme. This misconception started when people started lying about the fact that it wasn't airborne on a technicality that it wasn't airborne on its own but rather using other particles in the air, which themselves are airborne to spread.
However, the source is the CDC a few months ago. Can't find it anymore, but you can loosely trust me.

I called this in Dec (one month before you did) and my grandpa called this in Nov (one month before me). So you are wrong. and i don't need you to argue about it. Trust me. I am the grand wizard of COVID. and Expert on this topic as my title suggests.nUseBro wrote: ↑ My main criticism is that as it currently stands we have not flattened the curve, rather, we have decided (try) to prevent the curve from forming in the first place.

In Canada we have the privilege of being next to the U.S. so we can never hope to go to 0 cases.
The death rate for COVID is by my estimation somewhere around 1,2% of total cases (including asymptomatic).
As the government has already doubled down on the lockdown, it is reasonable to assume that covid will not end until the introduction of the vaccine.
So nothing before April 2021. My take is that by June of 2021 we will have either finished dealing with it, or given up and finished talking about it.
Alternatively we can give up on flattening the curve and finish this in a few months time, but the actions by which this could be achieved can only be ascribed as being domestic terrorism.
As it stands, the main issue with COVID is that the disease is damaging the lungs of people who are asymptomatic, severely damaging people that it doesn't kill and has an immunity period that may be less than 4 months in length. In other words, this disease stands the change to cycle through the population over and over again tripling its mortality rate to 3% of total cases. One of the past theories for Covid was that the reason the cases in china were so bizarre is that china was actually living through its second wave in january. It would explain the vast difference in the cases experienced in China vs the West. I really do recommend you look at *how* the people were dying in china. A lot of it was through cytokine storms and sudden deaths. It was extremely common to see videos of people falling down in the streets from lack of air. We have not seen this in Canada. The second wave theory didn't really match the world we live in, but it is important to know that the mortality rate, despite being """high""", is not what is actually worrying us.
