Recommended Posts

This doctor from the UAB has expressed concerns:

Duke University has found some commonly used masks are ineffective.  So why are they still being recommended as being “better than nothing?”  If the object is to contain the virus, the only masks which we use should be rated for filtering virus sized particles.  Unfortunately, they can not be found anywhere.

Some are wearing 2 simple masks nowadays. One over the other.

Are we reaching the point where we say "I'm tired of this, Let it wash over me. I'll take my very good chances."

Am certain some have like me.

Too many unknown complications

keeping me from giving into it.

Of course, many reasons can find

not to embrace it like, health.

had they implemented shields rather than masks , or as a secondary option 

 

, I wonder

1)- if they are more effective

2)- if people would have resisted them as much as masks

3) since they allow a person to breathe normally  , they are more comfortable 

4) they are washable

5) they protect the eyes , nose  etc , and they can be used over a mask or not

6)- they are re-usable and very cheap

 

All-thanks to the Chinese selling these by the Billions

 I did find something  from the BBC  --https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200806-are-face-shields-effective-against-covid-19

 

 I find them less intrusive  and a no-brainer   -------our staff love them -----about 1$ and change a piece --

 

 

all I am saying is that a foot long shield may be an  acceptable option  to those who dont like wearing masks - I can't stand wearing a mask for a very long time -----but , I am happy to use a shield  in conjunction with a mask -

A face visor by itself can protect against larger droplets but is less effective if the virus is airborne (Credit: Press Association)

back to education

IMHO

was telling the wife [she's a teacher] that I predict the school year will be postponed for a year. Remote learning will not good enough to keep the students on the desired learning curve.

We're asking parents to educate the kids as good as the professionals.

We/they will be doing good to keep the kids from back-sliding, let alone advancing
