Oh and you're wrong about the history of masks. Up until the early 1900s, doctors did not wear masks nor did they wash their hands, and were offended when it was suggested that they should do both.

The closest things to masks before then were those weird bird masks they wore during the plague, but that was just based on the "bad air" myth (the masks contained perfumes and incense thought to cleanse the air) and the plague was bloodborne anyway (fleas) so those didn't work at all.
Maniac beat me to it, but when the shut downs and social distancing measures were put in place we were told that ~80% of people who contract COVID would either be asymptomatic or have minor cold like symptoms. We were also told that people who were asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic were contagious which was a big reason as to why we had to social distance. But maybe you were referring to Jan-Feb timeframe.

Thanks for clarifying on the masks. Technically the technology was there, but sounds like it wasn't be utilized. At any rate masks still have been in use for over a century and were used during the Spanish Flu pandemic. Our medical experts had plenty of data on social distancing from 1918 that they used. You would think there would have been data on the effects of mask usage as well.

Has anyone here ever had a surgical procedure? They wheel you in to surgery and EVERYBODY is wearing a mask, except you. Are they worried they will get something from you or is it that YOU could catch something from them because a hospital is a giant petri dish.

If everyone in this country would put on a mask for 90 days, we could bring covid under control

Well we started the season and they showed a stat during the game they have administered 6000 tests and 6 players have tested positive doesn’t sound alarming to me. NBA, mlb, ihsaa football is all going along so I guess we’ll see......

High school near me shut down bc of positive tests. The nba has the bubble and mlb had quite a few problems. We will see, a lot more players and personnel to account for with football unfortunately.

Starting a season and having a season are not the same thing. I hope you're right. I doubt it, but I hope you are correct.

Now, on to Sunday.
