COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2): the Tide is Turning for Facial Covering / Mask Official Recommendations

You have been lied to in the most grotesque (deadly) way possible by the CDC, WHO, Surgeon General, etc. But the criminally negligent stupidity should soon end, as logic and sense prevail. Will we see the infection rates drop after mass adoption of facial coverings? Place your bets now.

Please see my post from two days ago, COVID-19: Public Policy MUST be Changed: Facial Coverings should ALWAYS be Worn To Protect Others as well as all my COVID-19 posts.

I have long recommended an N95/N100/P100 particulate repiratator for many reasons and they are excellent for COVID-19. Stock up when they are back in ready supply but read my usage tips in various older posts—many are hard to breath through when exercising.

Take a deep breathing for a few minutes first because they might make you angry once you see what so-called experts have been telling you versus a much more logical / sensible set of courageous professionals think.

'Stealth Transmission' of COVID-19 Demands Widespread Mask Usage, by Barbara Einav, MD and cardiologist and clinical assistant professor at SUNY Upstate Medical University.

CDC Considers Recommending all Americans Wear Face Masks in Public

U.S. Reviews Guidance on Masks to Fight Coronavirus as Europe Embraces Their Use

Much of Central Europe is now following the example set by China, Taiwan and South Korea. On Monday, Austria mandated its citizens wear masks when outside the home, after the Czech, Slovak and Bosnian governments issued similar orders.

Why won’t the WHO call the coronavirus by its name, SARS-CoV-2?

So one tests positive for SARS-CoV-2, not Covid-19, as it’s the virus and not the disease that does the infecting...The WHO writes on its website that it steers clear of SARS-CoV-2 because “using the name SARS can have unintended consequences in terms of creating unnecessary fear for some populations”...

Last I recall, masks were a good idea for SARS.

National Coronavirus Response A ROAD MAP TO REOPENING

Encourage the Public to Wear Masks. There is emerging evidence that asymptomatic and presymptomatic transmission of COVID-19 is possible, which complicates efforts to pursue case-based interventions.

To reduce this risk during Phase I, everyone, including people without symptoms, should be encouraged to wear nonmedical fabric face masks while in public. Face masks will be most effective at slowing the spread of SARS-CoV-2 if they are widely used, because they may help prevent people who are asymptomatically infected from transmitting the disease unknowingly.

Face masks are used widely by members of the public in some countries that have successfully managed their outbreaks, including South Korea and Hong Kong.20 The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended members of the public use face masks in the event of a severe influenza pandemic.

We have to reopen sometime.

Riverside County recommends residents cover their faces when leaving home, but not with N95 masks

... However, people should not go out and purchase critical N95 and surgical masks, which are desperately needed by health care workers...

Experts believing that novel coronavirus is primarily transmitted through the droplets of an infected individual — something that happens when they cough or sneeze, for instance — and that fabrics can filter them out. “This not only helps to reduce the risk a well person can breathe those droplets in, but also protects others around someone with mild symptoms who may not yet realize they have the illness,” the agency’s release stated. As a result, residents should strive to wear some type of face covering anytime they leave their homes to perform essential tasks, like going to the supermarket or visiting the pharmacy. Even with masks, people will still need to continue the practice of physical distancing and staying home when possible. Frequent hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer are also still being advised. “It’s an extra layer of protection that I think we need to add,” Kaiser said of the face coverings.
...

DIGLLOYD: even though it is clearly stated, I wonder if at least some portion of the public will remember “N95 not good” and that is not good. The whole statement is pointless anyway, since there are none to buy, and the government can comandeer the supply and/or prohibit sale to consumers at any time, if this has not already been one. I also rather wonder whether equipping every person with an N95 mask might in fact be a net win for slowing spread and lowering deaths—just a thought, not stating it as probable. But it could be so and no one knows.
