I was skeptical of masks right from the start..
.. and still don't trust the majority of pro maskers
to wear them competently and safely..

However..

As soon as right wing arseholes started politicizing masks,
it was in my bolshy nature to definitely decide to wear them defiantly about the streets of my tory wanker infested small town,
where they acted thoughout the entire pandemic as if every day was "freedom day"...

Btw..

"I'll take lessons from any mask aficionado who changes their mask for every shop, bus or train. Who never touches the front. Who never, ever wears their mask round their chin. Who checks that their mask can't leak. Who launders their cloth masks every day, several times, and who carries a whole wad of clean ones for every eventuality. Who ditches their paper masks after every use, without fail, no matter how brief. "

.. that'll for most points be me then, I'm that scrupulously OCD..

But it's not in my nature to insist I know best
and order other folks about..


serves 'em right if they are right wing morons hell bent on winning their Darwin awards...

Up your mask game all you like (still no scientific evidence, I see). Almost every mask I see here in Bude is ill-fitting/worn badly/taken off, hitched down then up, frequently touched/serially reused (if you ask anyone round here, they'll cheerily tell you that they keep their same disposable mask going for day after day - and who wouldn't, when you have to buy them? Shall I say that again?)

I'll take lessons from any mask aficionado who changes their mask for every shop, bus or train. Who never touches the front. Who never, ever wears their mask round their chin. Who checks that their mask can't leak. Who launders their cloth masks every day, several times, and who carries a whole wad of clean ones for every eventuality. Who ditches their paper masks after every use, without fail, no matter how brief. If you do all these things, your mask still is probably no use. Fall down on any one of them, and your mask is a potential danger to the public. And we don't know who you are. About one person in a hundred is infected at any one time. Therefore a mask edict forces 99 people in every hundred to wear a mask for absolutely no useful purpose, and the one-in-a-hundred person is quite likely staying home anyway, and/or is still leaking masses of viruses through their badly-worn mask (my university definition of a virus started with "a non-filterable particle..."). Great, so it's claimed that we can prevent childhood diseases by wearing masks. I suppose we can prevent flu, colds and all manner of other ailments by wearing masks. Let's leap to the logical conclusion to all this by saying that everyone should wear a mask, all the time, for ever more.

I wish the antivaxers here knew that General George Washington demanded everyone in his army was vaccinated against small pox.

Edward Jenner inoculated a 13 year old boy in 1796 with the cowpox virus as a protection against smallpox. The first proper smallpox vaccine was developed in 1798. George Washington died in 1799. He must have been very forward thinking in the last year of his life.

Wearing masks and social distancing had the added benefit over the last year of reducing and almost eliminating many childhood seasonal illnesses, and the converse is true. As soon as the mask wearing decreased, some of those childhood illnesses returned with a vengeance.

Texas children and children’s hospitals are under siege from two viruses: RSV and COVID-19

More children are being treated in Texas hospitals for COVID-19 than ever before, and an unseasonable outbreak of respiratory syncytial virus is adding to the stress on children’s hospitals.

More children are being treated in Texas hospitals for COVID-19 than ever before. But there’s a second factor that is putting pediatric hospitals on the path to being overwhelmed: an unseasonable outbreak of respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, a highly contagious virus that can require hospitalization mostly among children 5 years and younger and especially infants.

During the last year, RSV was largely dormant, which experts believe was due to people masking up during the pandemic. Now, in just the last several weeks, thousands of Texas children have tested positive for the virus.

In addition, the delta variant of COVID-19 appears to affect unvaccinated children more often than previous variants. It’s unclear if children are also becoming sicker from it than from other variants of COVID-19. And with the regular flu season approaching, medical experts are concerned over how hospital capacity could be affected.

Sometime last year I saw a cartoon - unmasked bloke ranting, masked bloke holds out his hand & says "Your rights stop at my nasal passages"

Most of us are masked & follow instructions/health orders.

Sydney & large parts of Australia are in lockdown as delta is running riot in the land of Oz & of course the immortals, the Freedom fans, the nutters & the selfish don't care!

Some people are defiantly travelling about trailing covids & infecting country regions which have not had infections before. This bloke is now in a small regional hospital as are his 2 teenage children who he took with him on his trip, all unmasked, all in hospital.

Others are refusing to wear masks or follow health instructions/orders. QR codes are used everywhere to sign in to shops & businesses, but the newest news is fake QR codes. Hold phone up at code, click & walk thru ...

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Masks may or may not be effective protection...???

But short of personal hermetically sealed full face bio-hazard helmets,
they are the only meagre defense most of us have readily available...

But even if they are a useless placebo,
they do serve a valuable purpose
as a visible social symbol that wearers respect their own life,
and the lives of neighbours and total strangers...!!!!!

I see maskless strangers on trains and in shops,
and am automatically wary of them.

On face value, they are in my estimation
demonstrating callous selfish contempt for me and all others
in their vicinity...

My opinion of them is probably true for the greater majority.
I reserve my apologies for the tiny minority who are unable to mask up for genuine health reasons.....

btw.. I absolutely detest the discomfort of mask wearing.
But it is my decision to endure it out of respect for other people..

.. and a tiny petty futile protest that a bloke who looks like me,
easily mistaken for an old right wing street thug,
will defiantly mask up in a small west country town of tory voting anti-mask right wing street thugs...

If masks are not compulsory we should fully respect people's wishes to not wear them. I was asked to don my mask in our medical centre and I complied cheerfully. I do wear a mask in our tiny village shop because the lady who runs it, who we've known for years, always wears one and we have to stand very close in there. I think that comes under the heading of just being respectful of people's feelings of vulnerability. I went into a big bike shop the other day and the chap immediately demanded that I donned a mask. When I told him I didn't have one with me he tried to usher me to the door and said we could chat outside. Well he doesn't have to let me in his shop and I don't have to buy his stuff. Fine by me.

I don't feel the same at all about people who refuse the vaccine. Vaccines are THE way out of this. We can all wear masks for ever more and the thing will never go away. My whole face is a big part of my humanity and, unless I'm ordered otherwise by the law, the world can see it. All of it, thanks. But vaccine-refusers don't get my respect at all.

I agree wholeheartedly with you Steve. We are both double-vaccinated and would gratefully accept any booster or anti-Delta vaccine offered perhaps in the autumn.
Being vaccinated protects oneself but also others, and prevents yet another case being admitted to hospital in need of ventilation.
The thing is, I have always been convinced that vaccines are a Good Thing. As a youngster, I was only too pleased to be vaccinated/immunised against smallpox, polio, TB and anything else on offer. Also, travelling around Africa as I have done, thank goodness for the yellow fever jab, not to mention meningitis, typhoid, cholera jabs etc etc etc. I've had 'em all! I've swallowed dozens of anti-malarials too (Malarone). I'd probably be dead if I hadn't.
I have never had serious jab side-effects except for the first yellow fever one.
We are still wearing masks in supermarkets, and surreptitiously social distancing. But I understand that some people find mask-wearing very difficult.
Look, my poor sister is still struggling with long Covid (eighteen months now!) although she is improving slowly. If you knew what she has been through, you'd have any jab going. (She got Covid at the very start, before jabs were available)

I've started masking again. I see more people of all ages doing it indoor public areas. Outdoors I do not mask. The State is not requiring it and the municipality just elected a pro-business type who is also a vax agnostic (believes its up to the individual and is himself unvaccinated).

To me it's like being in a leaky lifeboat with bailing optional.

My quest has been to be honest while not losing a sense of humor.
I do not hope to panic folks but having studied the 3rd Reich perhaps more than the average person I have to conclude 'There is no bottom to human nature'.
The thin veneer of civilization is not as deep as people think.
It is no more than the onion skin thickness of our atmosphere.
Where we are today, there is no 'away'
there is no 'bottom' we can fathom.

A headline article says 'man didn't believe in covid' & left Sydney which is in lockdown & travelled to a covid-free regional area to inspect property so 4 local government areas are now in lockdown.

... The infected man was reported to have been travelling with two relatives and had not been wearing a mask, socially distancing or checking in to venues using QR codes, according to Byron Bay Mayor Michael Lyon. Mr Lyon said he had been told the man had waited until he was sick before going to hospital. "I've heard he didn't believe in the virus. From what I understand, he is not cooperating," he said ...

From The Guardian newspaper.

Confused anti-vaccine protesters stormed what they thought was a major BBC building on Monday, apparently unaware the corporation largely moved out almost a decade ago.

Rather than target the BBC’s news operation, which they hold responsible for promoting Covid-19 vaccines, a handful of protesters gained access to Television Centre in west London, which is now predominantly rented by ITV to film its daytime shows such as Good Morning Britain and This Morning.

The impact of long covid on cognitive function is often overlooked by media reports. The more severe the disease, it seems , the greater effect the disease will have on things like IQ ,reasoning, problem solving, spatial planning .
According to a Lancet article published last month, “people who
recovered from COVID-19, including those no longer reporting symptoms, exhibited significant cognitive deficits ." The report noted that
“score reduction for the hospitalised with ventilator sub-group was greater than the average 10-year decline in global performance between the ages of 20 to 70 within this dataset. It was larger than the mean deficit of 480 people who indicated they had previously suffered a stroke.”

We are now dealing with the Delta variant and should be on a war footing again and wear masks indoors. Yes we had a brief breather but that is over now. You are not just protecting yourself and the elderly but also the young and children. Its doing our part.

The punks sneer at most everything that came before them, but your sneer doesn't show much at all in text, and you certainly don't see any reason to stop loving the Kinks and Syd Barrett. Truth is, you are too old to be a punk-- so what are you going to do? Quit the squit? Or be hard core folk on your rocker :}.

If Louisiana was a separate country it would have the highest infection rate in the world. If Florida were its own nation it would be 4th in global infection rates.

Texas and Florida infections amount to 1/3 of new US Delta infections.
The Florida Govenor Santis has handcuffed local and State schools from any mask wearing mandates. While he is at it I suggest he bans seatbelts, airbags, gun safeties, FDA testing and all laws regarding explosives to maximize freedom for his base. But seriously, half of the no vaxers still consider the vaccine more dangerous than Covid.

Just for a bit longer I'm not going into pubs, theatres or open-plan restaurants and I won't be going on buses or trains (I'm lucky - I don't have to). I don't wear a mask any more unless I'm asked to in person. So far, that's happened in Specsavers and in the minor injuries unit in our local cottage hospital (idiotically, I scalded my arm reaching over a boiling kettle...). I still keep one about my person.
