Bussing infected patients to nursing homes, but releasing infected prisoners into society.

This isn’t about Covid, people.

It’s the implantation of Orwell’s 1984.

Key words being "managed and mitigated" risk.  We pay hundreds of dollars for "certified" parts that would cost $5 on the open market because the government tells us to.  Pilots take recurrent training because the government tells us to.  IFR pilots won't fly in IMC if they are not "current" per the FAA rules.  We don't drink and fly, we don't fly over gross, we make sure we have that stupid little compass correction card that nobody ever uses because the government mandates us to "be safe".

But people don't want to wear a $3 mask because they are not 100% guaranteed to keep them from catching a serious disease.  Perhaps as pilots, we should fly in IMC using only an Ipad because it is not guaranteed to kill us.
Your $3 mask can likely create a moisture spot in front of your nose and mouth that acts as a wick when you walk through an aerosol germ cloud, allowing you to breath in the germs when you’re well past the person who sneezed or cough.

So pardon the hell out of me if I don’t want to risk my own health so you feel more comfortable.

This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Further research is needed to inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally. However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masks should not be recommended for HCWs, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.

What would you have had Trump do differently?  He followed all the recommendations of the long tenured, career bureaucrat, medial experts that were on board previous to his Administration like Dr. Fauci and Dr Birx.

Don't you remember? President Trump should have fast-tracked a serology test even before China reported the unexplained pneumonia cases.  sheesh.  The perfessor POS was very clear about that.

Our government under more competent leadership was able to stop each of these well before they became epidemic in this country.
Bullshit. What did the government do to “stop” them?  Facts, not hyperbole.

Everything you've just said is wrong.  Amazing.  The only way to "quicken" the period of viral spread is to have everyone infected at once.  I hope you can see why that's a bad idea.  As I said, the larger part of the recent surge is the young, who do recover more quickly.  I'm hopeful that milder strains have also played a role, but have no data to back that up.

Social distancing has never been "debunked" except by the POTUS and his cadre of idiots.  It is absolutely the best way to stop the spread of the virus.  We can't quarantine since we can't tell from symptomology who's infected and who isn't.  The only thing left is to keep folks away from each other.

 Once again, you arm yourself with the latest liberal progressive talking points then come on here trying to impress everyone with your "newfound knowledge".

 Social distancing was began during the GWB administration as an idea.  There have been an abundance of real actual scientist who have basically said it's worthless.  But you won't see those reports on the MSM or through your liberal universities as it debunks the myth.

And what better way to spread your disinformation?  Keep people away from each other so their only source of information, or even any human contact, is through the MSM and social media.  Yes, isolate and separate your enemies.  Keep them from getting together and forming subversive ideas.  Stay isolated!  It's the only way to be safe.  And compliant.

And what is the rate of false positives do you think?  Do you think it so pervasive to throw off the numbers by multiple percentage points?

 Right now it's showing about a 30 to 40% false positive.   I'd say that's rather high.

 
Two factors.  The first is most of the new infections are in the young, who don't suffer the debilitating effects to the degree of older patients.  The second is, like I told you, the virus has evolved.  There are now strains that are, while more infective, less lethal.  It isn't clear at present their representation in the viral pool, but they're likely to grow.  A virus that doesn't kill its host is more successful than one that does.

So we can expect to "social distance" and wear mask for, oh, another decade or so? 


 
A very good point.  I sport facial hair, so no mask is going to be airtight on my face.  I gave you a salient description, you can tell me how good you think it is or isn't.  The main prevention of infection is still social distancing.  I suspect however much you complain all of you are doing that as well.  I think the majority reading this are sufficient aged to present comorbidity for viral infection.

 It takes me 90 minutes to have a mask fitting done.  I can assure you that your homemade mask is doing zilch for you.

Follow up spikes are not inevitable.  There was no follow up spike to Zika, Ebola, SARS or MERS.  If we Americans behaved with even a lick of sense we'd have had this nipped in the bud long ago.  We don't and we're all suffering the consequences.  I suspect we're going to keep suffering the consequences well into the next year and possibly beyond.

Interestingly, the CDC doesn't include SARS, Ebola, Zika, or MERS in it's list of past pandemics.

So if mask are really that effective, instead of releasing felons from prison why weren’t they just issued mask instead?  :o
