Skip to comments.Was mask-wearing pointless after all? Fauci must be forced to answer

Here’s a question...
We know someone scheduled for an outpatient diagnostic procedure under light sedation at a hospital run outpatient clinic.
The procedure can take a few hours.
Just found out the patient’s driver/healthcare proxy can no longer wait in the waiting room.
The person either has to sit in the parking lot or wait somewhere nearby for a few hours until they get a call to show up to talk to the doc, which will be made 15 ahead of the time to speak with the doctor.
No exceptions. Not even if the driver/hrlealthcare proxy gets a CoupFlu test a head of time and gets a negative result.
The patient is giving serious consideration to canceling the procedure.
If masking, testing work, why are patients and families being treated like this by health systems?!
“Someone sneezed in my face on a bus in Bermuda some years ago and as a result I got quite sick.”
So for that perhaps once or twice in a lifetime incident when a mask would have maybe helped, you’ll wear one every day?
Why not just stop living life and hide in your house like a hermit? That way you’ll never get run over by a car, which is a much bigger and ever-present risk than getting sneezed on?
I don’t leave my home every day, but when I do I will wear a mask. I decide what risks I wish to take and what risks to avoid. Not you, and not Fauci. If it makes you feel uncomfortable, that is your problem.
Agreed! Leftists absolutely had a point which was to normalize us doing whatever government said, no matter how stupid or worthless.
They started with using the threat of government if one did not comply but the goal is to make everyone do it willingly and “to love big brother!”
I’m pretty sure you are correct. It was an added “benefit” of the masks.
It doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable, it just makes you seem weird and a bit paranoid.
Most were wearing the cloth masks that did nothing but suppress your breathing. It was always about control which is why Trump said if you want to wear one then go ahead. But biden said he wants everyone to wear them to do patriotic duty. Now we find out it’s bs. But they are still telling you to wear them. Even tried to say wear 2. Just for fun I bet. I can hear them saying watch this. I will try to get them to wear 2. Let’s see how many I can get to do it. And the media covers for this guy and makes Trump look bad because he didn’t like wearing them.
Those tiny virus particles are contained in the droplets, and the fewer you breathe in the easier time your immune system has in dealing with the ones you do.
OK, I’m weird and a bit paranoid, you are illogical and a bit stupid. Are we done trading insults, or should we continue? LOL
What exactly is a “Team Obama” health official... and why would Dr. Fauci be communicating with them?
That a mask can capture sneeze or spittle droplets is true, but only for a few minutes until those droplets begin to dry out. Then, unless you replace your mask that captured those droplets, like any dry filter the mask will begin to unload its particles -- specifically, the virus -- which will pass easily through the mask then deep into your lungs with every breath. Happy masking!
I can count on one hand the number of times anyone has ever sneezed on me. I would not choose to spend my life wearing a mask to prevent that.
You are entitled to your own free choice. Good luck!
The person who sneezed near you could’ve had allergies, and there could’ve been a different person (who didn’t have obvious symptoms) sitting near you that got you sick instead. The best you can really say is that you got sick from *someone* in your vicinity that day. You may be right, but your 99.99% certainty is hogwash.
I do wish you stay well, and enjoy wearing your mask. I think it’s awful that you want people who choose not to wear one to get sick. That’s pretty weird, and a great example of what CoVid-only obsessiveness has done to our society. It’s the first time in history that when people got sick (from CoVid), they were met with anger or glee instead of concern and compassion.
Not in NYS, you’re not.
Well, we always talk about peer pressure in negative terms, but it seems to me that peer pressure itself is neutral; it could be good or bad depending on what you are pressuring people about.
For example, there used to be huge social pressure not to have children out of wedlock, which in retrospect seems like a very good use of pressure.
I’m still seeing plenty of people in parking lots and on sidewalks, masked to the eyeballs.
Only when absolutely required did I wear my mask askew in a totally useless manner. I went out and did as many “risky” things as O could find to do. Tried to catch the bug to develop natural immunity.
Nope. No covid here!
