    Not only have thousands more people died than in neighboring countries that imposed lockdowns, but Sweden’s economy has fared little better. “They literally gained nothing,” said Jacob F. Kirkegaard, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “It’s a self-inflicted wound, and they have no economic gains.”

    People don't go out until they think it's safe. Herd immunity would take years. Shutdown and slow re opened has/is working in other countries.

    It is cold blooded math....perhaps not tactfully looked at, but, if 250,000 seniors die off early, each saving on average 2500/ mo for 200 months that's nearly $100billion saved AND the economy keeps chugging along, employment stays at 95% and the general public isn't sidetracked with false promises of masks, etc (OSHA has the facts on masks....they are generally worthless after 1 day of use).

    It's a question of the future of the Country versus the future of our senior citizens....that's who's dying here en mass....seniors beyond life expectancy.

    It is a national debate no doubt, but the economics are clearly w the non maskers despite that link....it's been, unfortunately, politicized for the wrong reasons.

    "Some feel face coverings infringe on their freedom of choice-but if MORE wear them, we'll have MORE freedom to go out."

    "Face coverings mean less asymptomatic viral spread and means more places open the sooner"

    "Exercise and promote your freedom by choosing to wear a face covering."

    Quotes from Surgeon General Jerome Adams twitter account at 7:35AM on 6-14-2020...

    This is a "NEW" virus, people learn as they go along. It's called dynamic education.
    Most people know more at the end of Grade 1 than when starting.....although I'm not sure about some people on SBR?
    We are just finishing up Grade one with this virus and now we know much more, but still not even close to everything.

    There are people who don't wear seat belts when driving or helmets when riding motorcycles. There is always going to be an amount of stupid people in any society. This is why Darwinism will always work. Survival of the fittest.

    Like I said,the masks people are wearing don't do shit so they might as well wear nothing.

    If you don't wear a N95 or better, don't wear one at all.

    It's better to wear a mask, any mask. It keeps you away from talking to people and opening your mouth. If the idiot at Costco was wearing a mask he would have a job now.

    The Mississippi State Capitol has lit up like a Covid Christmas tree the last 2 weeks with 36 people that work within the building being tested

    positive for Covid including 26 Legislators. The House Speaker, Lt Gov. and others.

    No social distancing nor were mask required in the State Capitol. Hey, it's results that count. As they say in the South.....Good job Bobby Joe..

    Unless the mask sills off your airways it's useless.

    It's the psychological effect. When I see people wearing masks at the store there is a less chance they will open their mouth to spread germs. It forces people to not talk.

    I do know some things gathered from lot's of other sources.
    Masks work for the other person. A mask wearer is protecting you not himself. Very considerate.....a team player.
    A proper N95 will give the wearer some(guestimate 50%) protection but it must be fitted correctly.
    The #1 thing you can do is social distancing.....now they think more than 6 feet. About 10-12.
    Stay safe people, this is doable.

    The only reason the CDC is telling you to wear cloth masks is because real masks are in severe shortage and are reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders..

    They say cloth masks only help the already infected to keep from spreading it
    which sounds like BS if you ask me.

    If you're not protected from getting COVID through a cloth mask you can also spread it,IMO.


    The cloth face coverings recommended here are not surgical masks or respirators. Currently, those are critical supplies that should be reserved for healthcare workers and other first responders.

    Cloth face coverings are not personal protective equipment (PPE). They are not appropriate substitutes for PPE such as respirators (like N95 respirators) or medical facemasks (like surgical masks) in workplaces where respirators or facemasks are recommended or required to protect the wearer.

    Here's a perfect example with the cloth masks being worthless as they're wearing masks but still busting daily COVID infection records as high a 11,000+

    Then I went to a cigar bar (social distanced) nd watched Sounders v Earthquakes and had 3 cigars and 3 bourbons.

    I have several nurse friends that work in a Covid ward. They wear masks, face shield, A plastic gown and change gloves often. That’s good enough for me.

    Maybe try learning to capitalize your sentence before calling someone out on their English or grammar skills.

    Although looking at your latest posts confirms my suspicions that you are dumb as hell and believe the virus is a hoax.

    Last I heard a few of the outbreaks from strip clubs have actually been started by an American "entering Canada on their way to Alaska" and stopping to party.

    I only wear a mask when I absolutely have to. Just to shut up the people who might flip out if I didn't. I invite the China Syndrome and can't wait to contract it, so that when I get over it I can donate blood plasma and collect a big paycheck for doing so.

I also find it moralistically discerning that the poster initially seemed to be motivated to author this post as an example of how we should be empathetic to others to wear a mask, then he "secretly hope all these people get covid and get really sick for a few weeks to teach them a lesson" I find it disturbing that he/she wishes any type of sickness on another and that anyone would promote such a post...seems hypocritical especially coming from the lets all help each other by wearing a mask mindset...

    I watched a couple of days ago a man entering a store, and was immediately told by a clerk he couldn't come in and shop unless he had a mask on. He turned around and was headed back to his car, but in the planter by the cart corral, he spotted one of those disposable surgical paper ones on the ground. Picked it up, put it on, went into the store.

    I haven't laughed that hard in weeks.....

    If you are going to be fake coughing on someone during a pandemic then you deserve to get sick. Morons like you are the reason America can't get their crap under control. Instead of crying about my post do your part to help your country and wear a mask.

    I said I've had clients who have been fake coughing. As in they think the whole pandemic is a joke.
