Should you mask up?


Recommended Posts

The virus does not live on surfaces for very long. They can be disposed of in regular garbage. Personally, I like the double or triple cloth ones that I can launder... ya do know that soap and water kills the virus doncha?

I did NOT read it because Western Journal is a well-known right-wing hate rag.  

Read this, from Wiki, 

The Western Journal, previously known as Western Journalism, is an American conservative news and political website based in Phoenix, Arizona. 

Western Journal previously stated it featured "conservative, libertarian, free market and pro-family writers and broadcasters" and seeks to provide "God-honoring" content. This philosophy, in which "tradition-minded patriots face ceaseless assault by anti-Christian bigots, diseased migrants and race hustlers concocting hate crimes," results in "a torrent of sensationalized, misleading, or entirely made-up stories, often aimed at Muslims and immigrants." Because of negative rulings by fact-checking sites and user trust surveys, Western Journalism was blacklisted by Google and Apple News, and by 2017 its Facebook traffic declined to near zero.

Regardless if you like the source or not for this article it still would be interesting to know the truth.  Is there any real difference in the infection rate in states that have strong face mask mandates and that remain closed vs those that do not and have completely opened up?  Could it be that wearing unsteralized face masks that you keep in your back pocket or hang in your car is more dangerous than going maskless?

Like??  It's about their agenda.   

But perhaps you're okay with this,

Until we know, I'm wearing a mask anyway.

Such a bunch of hypoclorites, if you don't agree, its fake news.

I suggest to the "fake news" crowd, go use your favorite search engine. you can repost here, or not.

Some of you need to relearn reading, writing and COMPREHENSION, replying to something NOT attributed to you, qualifies as not comprehending.

@dichosalocura    Florida covid stats have been called into question for many months.  

https://news.yahoo.com/florida-covid-numbers-face-new-scrutiny-090058319.html
Tue, March 30, 2021

WASHINGTON — New research published earlier this month in the American Journal of Public Health argues that Florida is undercounting the number of people who died from COVID-19 by thousands of cases, casting new doubt on claims that Gov. Ron DeSantis navigated the coronavirus pandemic successfully.

The impact of the pandemic in Florida “is significantly greater than the official COVID-19 data suggest,” the researchers wrote. They came to that conclusion by comparing the number of estimated deaths for a six-month period in 2020, from March to September, to the actual number of deaths that occurred, a figure known as “excess deaths” because they exceed the estimate.

In Florida, the state’s 25 district medical examiners are directly appointed by the governor. Last spring, the DeSantis administration was accused of trying to keep those medical examiners from releasing complete coronavirus data. (In August, the state said coronavirus deaths no longer required certification from a medical examiner.)

“I am sure that COVID-19 is responsible for most of these excess deaths,” says Moosa Tatar, a public health economist at the University of Utah who led the research team looking at Florida’s excess deaths. He said he chose to focus on Florida because of how quickly the governor lifted restrictions there. That move was widely criticized as reckless, though some believe that he has been vindicated by the fact that states where lockdowns persisted in the spring and fall did not necessarily have better outcomes than Florida.

The DeSantis administration did not respond to a request for comment.

Ad hom alert.

Jerry, you are questioning the local religion here.  Not a good idea.  :D
