Dr. Hodkinson is an expert, and he addresses the Edmonton Alberta Council basically saying why the pandemic is a hoax\ of governmental over response.

Not to this guy isn’t but I’m more than tired of hearing the word expert.

It’s not that simple.

The virus “rides” on expelled droplets of water. THOSE are big enough to be stopped by the mask.

An this is a well known fact.

Mosquito meet chicken wire.

I worked in the environmental industry for over 25 years. One of my jobs was OSHA and EPA training. As part of those training sessions I’ve fit tested thousands of students. I’m can tell you from my experience with respiratory protection that cloth masks, even the vaunted N95, will not protect you from a virus. In addition for any mask to work it has to be fit tested and worn properly. Neither is being done. No one with facial hair can wear a mask effectively unless it is pressurized. And if the mask does not seal tightly around the face they are worthless. This guy’s right. It’s all virtue signaling.

— The virus “rides” on expelled droplets of water —

Sometimes. Sometimes not. Virus particles can also float in the air as viral aerosols. Masks are ineffective against such particles. You would need a full face positive-pressure respirator.

Does the mask capture these droplets? Does it act like a sponge, thus allowing viruses to easily penetrate and be sucked up your nose?

According to the current knowledge, the virus SARS-CoV-2 has a diameter of 60 nm to 140 nm [nanometers (billionth of a meter)] [16], [17], while medical and non-medical facemasks’ thread diameter ranges from 55 µm to 440 µm [micrometers (one millionth of a meter), which is more than 1000 times larger [25]. Due to the difference in sizes between SARS-CoV-2 diameter and facemasks thread diameter (the virus is 1000 times smaller), SARS-CoV-2 can easily pass through any facemask [25]. In addition, the efficiency filtration rate of facemasks is poor, ranging from 0.7% in non-surgical, cotton-gauze woven mask to 26% in cotton sweeter material [2]. With respect to surgical and N95 medical facemasks, the efficiency filtration rate falls to 15% and 58%, respectively when even small gap between the mask and the face exists [

Oh, I see. So your professional suggestion on the basis of your ‘well known fact’ is that BSL3 laboratories abandon their expensive respirators and may rely instead upon the vaunted N95 to protect lab workers from viral agents?

Or perhaps gaiters?

Alrighty then. /s

Me too...there are WAY too many medical experts on the internet since January 2020. Somebody should do something about that.

The virus is also present in aerosols which can remain suspended in the air when somebody coughs, laughs, or expels breath forcefully as what happened in a choir rehearsal in Washington state. A study from the University of Florida found COVID virus in the air more than sixteen feet from an infected patient. Most masks don’t block aerosols.

Yup. Well established over a year ago and outlined as well by yours truly, but the propaganda has wrought its damage.

Even here at FR.

“It’s all virtue signaling.” You’re absolutely right. Even sillier are people who wear those plastic shields over their face that make them look like they’re in a welding class. And the idiots who’ve installed plastic partitions in grocery stores and at public service desks, e.g., in the post office and the library? What about the air swirling above, around, and underneath those things? They’re not blocking anything. It’s laughable and a total fraud intended to hoodwink workers into thinking they’re safe. Plus, it’s the employer’s effort to comply with the CDC’s worthless rules.

So, what’s the point in any of this? The better idea is to get people vaccinated and tell them to boost their immune system in the standard ways—plenty of sleep, good nutrition, sunlight, and exercise.

An expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less until they know everything about nothing.

“The virus “rides” on expelled droplets of water. THOSE are big enough to be stopped by the mask.”

Just wondering, also asking for a friend, where does the virus go when the water droplet evaporates? (Turns into a gas and floats off)

Is the virus (mosquito) still on the mask (chicken wire)?

WAIT! DON’T GO IN THERE! The air in there is full of Anthrax!

Here, before you go in, put this diaper over your nose and mouth. At least over your mouth. /s

Perfect. I also have been posting that article. You know people have very narrow views of what our freedoms are, Governor DeSantis has demonstrated that when you do not take masking, social distancing, and fearmongering from Fauci too seriously, allow the People themselves to exercise common sense, we can win out over the virus without resigning our freedoom and liberty.

I keep informing peple:1) YOU ARE FREE.2) USE YOUR COMMON SENSE, Florida style, 3) And order Ivermectin prophylaxis from India or the Alinsky left will kill you..
