    You don't discuss the evidence,
    As I said, you don't discuss the evidence.

    So you're not interested in facts, is that what you're conveying, ok, I thought that may have been the case.

    So you're dodging it now. This part of the conversation is about the following, or have you forgotten that, do you need a nana nap?

    Why do I have to be interested in discussing the efficacy of masks?

    Majority but that means in the strictest sense any number more than 50%. In this case the report is NOT a research article and is from early in the pandemic
    upload_2023-11-21_13-41-37.jpeg

    There was considerable under calculation of COVID deaths https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanam/article/PIIS2667-193X(21)00011-9/fulltext

    And just because you have a co morbidity does not mean you will curl your toes in the next few weeks. Many people with co morbidities can live decades post diagnosis

    Do you understand wearing masks and their efficacy are different matters?

    Oh, I think I did because you haven't described how a respirator works.

    You don't follow the bouncing ball. what part of this don't you understand that you quoted me from?
    You see, maybe you don't. But you've quoted me from the response above. So you tell me, when is this going to happen as I'm still waiting, and can the other statement you made about the "medical practitioner" be validated by you or her? I'm still waiting, but you continue to evade this statement made by you. Can you back your claim?

    They are related. Or haven't you noticed? It's not like comparing a mask to a truck tire, but then again, you might just go down that path, hey?

    So what? The UK handed out gas masks to everyone during WW2. Forget masks; wear respirators.

    I'm interested in providing everyone with respirators who wants them. We should show people how to fit and use them. We provide a risk assessment for respiratory illnesses in our area. Each of us then decides to wear the respirator or take our chances. Of course, you wouldn't be required to wear one.

    Want protection? Wear a respirator. I'm not promoting masks or their efficacy.

    Oh, so you're flogging your wares on the forum are you, I thought that's a huge no-no.

    I'm not interested in discussing the efficacy of surgical masks.

    Then why are you ranting on this thread then?

    It's about
    MSNBC medical contributor tells Americans to start wearing masks again after uptick in COVID

    Or do you have trouble with this concept?

    You've used the wrong word. That one you've used is for your descriptor.
    My correct descriptor is 'astute'. Don't go hurting yourself thinking about that one.

    And I promised the mods I would not quote posts I have reported, which is fair enough as it does cause them more work

    Oh, I see--you lost on the substance, so you claim I'm ranting. :lol:

    The thread is about wearing masks, perhaps even mask mandates, not about their efficacy.
    Yes, and your anti-mask crusade (I especially like your twenty overlapping claims you copied from somewhere) belongs in another thread.
