I’m getting sick and tired of this COVID-19 “plandemic” and the utter naivete of the masses. If you want to succumb to the fear mongering regarding this virus and wear a mask and gloves and look like some wannabe surgeon, then go ahead. Just know that they really don’t do anything except make those of us with common sense and good hygiene who pay no heed to the lamestream media and its bullshit laugh.
Even better are those who wear their masks and gloves while driving alone in their vehicles because who knows what evil virus made its way into their car and is sitting there waiting to invade their uncovered nose and mouth (or burrow into their unprotected hands) and make them sick. Or how about those who wear them outside because we all know that the atmosphere is chock full of deadly viruses that live indefinitely and are floating around looking for healthy folks to infect.
Give me a break.
According to Popular Science, masks are not the panacea of protection against viruses since the major transmission route is hand-to-face. Touch your face after you touch something a sick person has touched creates a greater likelihood that you might get sick.
Ergo, hand-washing has, and always will be, the gold standard for preventing disease.
Further, the paper masks the majority of sheep are wearing are disposable. They should not be reused, nor should someone touch his/her mask while it is on his/her face because it defeats the whole purpose. Additionally, cloth masks (or other cloth face coverings like bandanas, scarves, socks, bras, pantyhose, hijabs, etc.) can actually harbor bacteria and viruses due to the moist, warm environment around your mouth.
Forbes echos the sentiment that masks are not necessary for those who don’t have the virus. In fact, they can actually increase your chance of getting sick, especially if you wear them incorrectly and keep touching them to adjust. Thus, the medical consensus is that you should only wear a mask out in public if you are sick yourself to protect others.
The same goes for latex gloves. Wearing gloves does nothing to protect you from getting sick. In fact, they, too, can increase your chance of catching something if you touch a surface and then touch your face (ooh de ja vu!) To make gloves even remotely worthwhile, you’d need to change or wash/disinfect them as frequently as you do your hands.
So what’s the point? I’ll tell you. Wash your hands and don’t touch your face. Simple.
