Subject: How Much Longer Do We Have To Keep Wearing Masks?

Probably 2023. I don't mind masks as much as the social distancing, which I hope ends by late 2021.

I think the question should actually not be "How long do we HAVE to go on wearing masks" (which you inaccurately refer to as a "restriction"), but "how long SHOULD we go on wearing masks". My answer to that is "hopefully, forever".  If we here in the US had been wearing masks as a matter of course all along, like they do in Japan, you wouldn't have this vocal minority of disgruntled people who feel they are being "restricted". It would just be normal, because it would have been their own idea from the start. Mind you, I'm not saying we should go on wearing masks everywhere, every second of the day, but I can't tell you how many times over the years, pre-pandemic, I was on a crowded bus or train thinking "if only we wore masks like Japan". Because it always seemed that coughs, colds, flu, etc was very easily transmitted on crowded buses and trains. It only makes sense.

I still believe they are pretty WORTHLESS.

My little family just got back from a Mexican beach vacation, flew on a packed plane down and back  home, and yes they wore masks on plane, but my grandson really resents them and kept taking  his off.    The attendants didn't bother him...and they were all masked up and with those plastic shields.

They said the beach town was wonderful and hardly any masks....

Yeah, this. I can see myself wearing masks long after the pandemic is over. It's the courteous thing to do if you have a sneeze. Plus, it's perfect for a quick grocery or cornershop run when you don't feel like shaving or getting ready. ;D

I do take vitamin supplements. I can’t do grape seeds because as you said they don’t mix well with blood thinners. That’s my number one thing especially in the winter.

It’s unfortunate that masks work better in the offense than the defense. For the most part it’s asking the inconsiderate people to be careful. Not gonna happen. I think a good comparison is having to walk a violent city street to go about your duties. You can put on a bulletproof vest but it won’t stop you from getting shot in the head. The best solution is for the offenders to use care where they shoot or not shoot at all, but that won’t happen. Too bad we don’t have a better defensive solution besides a full suit of armor (hazmat suit).

Remember "the virus has never been isolated", "The Virus doesn't exist!", "the virus does exist but is harmless", "the virus was made to depopulate the world", "masks are useless even though my data doesn't back it up..." , "bleach is good against aids and cancer" and "articles about deaths because of vaccines"?.

Don’t know if this will play here. A clip from an interview with Professor Hugh Montgomery, professor of intensive care medicine on the current situation and the new variant. This new variant is slightly more transmissible than the previous virus, but is essentially the same. The numbers are going up because people aren’t following the rules of staying two metres apart, wearing a mask, and frequent hand washing/not touching their face.

Probably late fall around Oct-Dec. The vaccine basically just keeps the person who takes it from getting sick, but your body can still carry the virus and until everyone else is vaccinated, it can still spread and get others sick. It’ll be a while before the majority gets vaccinated for many reasons, including skepticism.

I lived in Japan for 3 years and I agree. I always like their way of doing things and their culture of respect and courtesy. Of course the vocal minority you mention are also likely the nationalistic and xenophobic type so if you told them that's how they do in Japan they'll just tell you to move there and possibly worse, because "This is Am'rrka, the greeeeatest couuuuuntry in the wooorld, the country of freedom!"

What Elor said.

I don't get how you can say that, with over 340,000 and counting dead from COVID that the cure is worse than the disease.  The last disease this bad was the "Spanish" flue. 

I don't recall anyone here saying that supplements are bad.  Clearly we all need vitamins (A,B,C,D etc) and minerals (iron, zinc, magnesium, etc). Ideally we get them through our food but there is nothing wrong with taking extra (within reason, to much can be toxic), but supplements ARE NOT a panacea.

How do you know? Do you know how many people you may have influenced with your careless posts? Maybe some took your "advice" and didn't wear masks and infected others. There is no telling whether you have caused illness and death or not but you can't rule it out for certain. You're playing with people's lives but I doubt you're realizing that or actually care.

I have and none mentioned that no one took supplements. So you just made the stuff up yet again. BTW maybe you should actually read the sources of your conspiracy guys. They usually contradict their articles.

It's funny, your track record of being right is pretty much non existent.

You fell for the guy claiming the virus has never been isolated even though the study he linked to as evidence didn't say that at all but you didn't notice that
You fell for the guy claiming masks are useless even though the study he linked for as evidence doesn't say so but you didn't notice that
you were the one claiming that you had an article about deaths caused by vaccines which turned out to be a blatant lie by you as the article never mentioned any deaths by vaccines
you claimed that none of the people who died from COVID took supplements without being able to back it up
You were the one not seeing that her conspiracy theories were mutually exclusive and therefore most of them had to be wrong
and you were the one telling Howard to forget about filling out his COVID form while not knowing the legal consequences he could have faced (this one probably pissed me off the most)

I'm real jealous. I wouldn't mind living there for a few years. I don't think my life would be better but definitely a very interesting experience. :D

Asian countries had a natural advantage in pandemics because of the conformist culture. People don't like to stick out or bring attention to themselves. In the West it is uniqueness that is celebrated even if the only thing making someone unique is how uniquely stupid they are.

Really? That's all? Calling others sheep while falling for every single conman no questions asked? Sorry but you questioning it all is the biggest joke I've heard on this board. You question absolutely nothing if it's against the official line and supports your narrative or you would have easily found the contradictions in the articles with their actual sources.

Once again you think you know us. I, for one take a bunch of supplements and do not take any prescription drugs.

As for being sheep-most of us don't follow rules just because someone tells us to. When it comes to this virus, we follow the guidelines that have been put out by the EXPERTS in the field-not some joe schome who has a blog or got his/her degree out of the bottom of a Crackerjack box.

You say you go with what you believe is right. Did you ever think that you might be wrong? And yes, even experts are wrong from time to time but they admit it, make adjustments and move on.

And I have no idea what you mean by Social Medicine world.

I don't think so because it wasn't a virus that killed off the dinosaurs. They really couldn't adapt to any changes. They were rather impractically built creatures. Nature was new at that kind of thing back then.

I don't think so because it wasn't a virus that killed off the dinosaurs. They really couldn't adapt to any changes. They were rather impractically built creatures. Nature was new at that kind of thing back then.
Not a virus but breathing in the volcanic ash which can be harmful to the lungs.

Actually, they were very well adapted and as a group lived for millions of years, adapting to the gradual changes that occurred over the various geological epochs.  They were wiped out by a massive climate catastrophe caused by the impact of an asteroid near the Yucatan peninsula - much worse that the results of volcanic eruptions like Krakatoa

Yes, even if it was breathing volcanic ash, that would only happen locally. A mass of erupting volcanoes, or asteroid, would send so much debris into the atmosphere that the sun would be blocked for a long time. Enough to cause drastic climate change, and plants (food) not to grow.

So a 0.5% mortality rate is acceptable to you with over 200.000 infections per day? You are willing to sacrifice 10.000 people per day because you can't be arsed to put on a mask?

Yeah, your mind is so open that you fall for every conman out there without thinking for yourself or analyzing what they actually say. You have proven that beyond any doubt here. I don't have to put up that list, again do I?

BTW do you really believe that we follow the rules just because the big bad government told us to? If so you're mistaken. We follow the rules because we actually educated ourselves on the topic and came to the conclusion that it makes the most sense.
I also read each and every of your articles and found them to be lacking (that's the polite term for hilariously stupid) and could deconstruct them easily. How an adult is able to fall for that is actually beyond me. So yes, I made my choice after considering both sides and went for the one that made sense and rejected the stuff I could easily prove wrong.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/paullamkin/2020/08/28/lgs-latest-wearable-is-a-high-tech-face-mask/?sh=3bc407e92545

Featuring a couple of H13 HEPA filters - the kind of filters LG, Dyson, Philips and co. stick in their home air purifiers - the idea is that the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier goes above and beyond what a regular face mask provides.

Instead of just giving you (and people around you) a bit of added protection from you-know-what, it also adds a load of extra benefits such as breathing purified air and boasts UV-LED lights that kills harmful germs.

The mask is able to take in clean, filtered air, and there’s a Respiratory Sensor built in that detects the cycle and volume of the user’s breathing and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly.

The ones who have figured it all out and are better than the others who are just "staggering around in the dark, unable to see the truth".


I think it's actually a sense of helplessness that makes people believe in so many conspiracy theories. It gives them a handle on the chaos swirling around them. Mind you, I think some conspiracy theories have merit, such as "who really killed JFK?". But some of these theories today are getting more and more ridiculous.

Here's the thing that nobody ever talks about----did you ever notice that people who believe in conspiracy theories, no matter how outlandish, ALWAYS just assume that the mysterious people perpetrating them are SUCEEDING? It never occurs to them that these mysterious people behind the curtain could be screwing up badly just like the people (politicians, etc) in front of the curtain. What makes these hidden people so much more competent and brilliant than the people we can see? The whole lynchpin that these conspiracy theories hang on is that the people perpetrating them NEVER fail. It sounds pretty unlikely to me.

Especially considering that is has to be done on a world wide scale here regardless of political system. They must cheat them all and not get detected by any... Extremely unlikely. Besides the official version in this case actually makes sense unlike all of the COVID conspiracy theories I've heard so far...

I am trying to work out the simple logic of the benefit of wearing a facemask. If you do not wear a facemask you are more liable to breathe in the droplets of the virus in the air. It is known that facemasks can restrict the breathing and health conditions can be worsened if worn. When out in an enclosed space, people can show exemption forms, but the forms are for those that have a vulnerable condition. So simply putting it, vulnerable people should be at home shielding with someone else doing their shopping or ordering it online.

I dispute the bit in bold. I haven’t seen any evidence that it restricts your breathing. People couldn’t be asked to wear masks for long periods if it did.

I have seen some people online saying that they won’t wear a mask because they had been attacked previously and the sensation of something over their mouth is similar enough to remind them. This I understand, I had a friend who had been abused and strangled on occasion and didn’t like anything tight round her neck for that reason. These people should wear a face shield which would offer others protection from them.

For what I said in bold, is that I had to wear a facemask for over one hour (before the recent lockdown), when essential shopping at a very large Swedish home store, and are leaving and after removing my mask I felt rough with it and had to rest for the remainder of the day.

This is my understanding. The virus is much smaller than the mask openings. The mask is not a filter. Instead it is a diffuser. It spreads the path of your breath over a much wider area, therefore slowing the velocity of the air. And not projecting your airstream nearly as far. If you’re carrying the virus, it stays nearer to you. And you’re not spreading it to settle on objects that others will touch. Sometimes I forget I have a mask on and I try to blow the dust off my glasses. It doesn’t work. That’s how effective a mask is against projecting your air to others.

If you’re the mask wearer, you will still breathe the air that an infected person spread. So it’s not as effective. But the mask will slow the velocity of your air intake, pulling air from closer to you and less likely from others, if you can keep your distance.

Air currents can take it to others, but it’s at least had a chance to dissipate some. If you’re in an enclosed space for a length of time, sooner or later everyone will breathe your air. The mask is not 100% effective, but every little thing helps. Masks + distance + minimize time in enclosed space.

I like to think of it as having to unfortunately navigate a gang populated street on your commute. You can put on a bulletproof vest but it won’t stop you from taking a stray bullet to the head. The most effective solution is to control where the offenders send their bullets, but since those are the careless ones to begin with it won’t happen.

There are a couple things I was taught in my life. In hunter’s safety - treat every gun as if it were loaded. In electrical training - treat every wire as if it were energized. Later on, before you do something stupid on the road, treat every driver as if they were carrying a gun. And for 2020 and beyond, treat every person as if they were carrying the virus. You don’t know, and often times they don’t either. If everyone assumed every other person were infected, we would have this under control.

Doctors' leaders have called for urgent improvements in personal protective equipment for health workers.

The British Medical Association is appealing for a higher grade of face mask to guard against coronavirus infection.

It says there is 'growing evidence' that the virus is being spread through the air by aerosols.

These are tiny virus particles that can build up in stuffy rooms and they have been linked to outbreaks of Covid-19.

This follows an open letter from more than 1,500 health professionals for staff on general wards to be given the type of high-quality masks usually only worn in intensive care units.

Public Health England (PHE) has issued guidance on what PPE staff in different settings require. It was last updated in October 2020.

They put them in high altitude chambers and observed for example at what altitude the behavior would change, when they would lose consciousness and how long they could survive at which altitude. Afterwards they dissected their brains in search of damage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_human_experimentation#High_altitude_experiments. So all of these things have been tested and we know how much oxygen a human brain needs to function and at what level brain damage occurs. It's not a secret. The knowledge has been out there for 75+ years and obviously masks have been ranked as safe or them doctors wouldn't be using them themselves for crying out loud.

BTW the first sign of Hypoxia is a feeling of euphoria.  Does anyone observe people becoming euphoric around them when wearing a mask? No? ::)
Blue fingernails or lips? No? ::)
Must be the very sneaky kind of brain damaging hypoxia.

BTW isn't it funny that I can't find ANYTHING on that" leading" German neurologist on German websites apart from those conspiracy sites pointing to that one video or sites debunking it? Nothing else on her. Not even when searching for "Dr. Margareta Griesz-Brisso publications" (a leading neurologist should have a few of those or she wouldn't be leading). Yep, totally leading neurologist. That conspiracy theorists always have to lie...but I guess they don't have much else to make their point.

This really disturbs me. You were putting the guy in a position that it was obvious he was uncomfortable with. Instead of accepting the fact that he doesn't believe the same as you, you were trying to FORCE him into doing what YOU want him to do. You claim that you are not anti-mask but yet you seem to think that EVERYONE shouldn't wear a mask because of what YOU believe about them. Your argument about not being born with a mask on is ridiculous. You weren't born with clothes on, either. Does that mean you will go around without them? Yeah, I know that is ridiculous to even think that because everyone knows that clothes protect us from the elements-the same way masks do.

I have said this before and I will say it again. Just because YOU believe that masks don't help, that doesn't mean that they don't. And if you don't want to wear one, that is your business and I hope you do not get sick or make others sick because of your stubbornness but the rest of us chose to acknowledge science and will wear one as long as we need to.


Again, PLEASE just let this go! You are NOT going to convince us and by continuing to try to make your arguments, you will just perturb people.

Probably 2023. The reason for this is this equation

P = 1 - (1/R)

P is the number of people you need to immunize to reach herd immunity. R is the rate of transmission of the virus. The lower R is, the fewer people who need to be immunized. Mask mandates are one way to reduce Rt, which means herd immunity can be reached earlier. If you loosen on up on mask mandates you risk reintroducing the virus back into the population. The virus will need to be eradicated globally before mask mandates go away.

I thought it would have been understood by now, but masks do not prevent people from being exposed to viruses. They help prevent people from SPREADING viruses.

It is my hope that people KEEP wearing masks when this is over, as we should have been doing all along.

BUT anyway...by all means hang on to them. Just to be prepared should anything happen again. When all this started it was IMPOSSIBLE to get masks either online or in brick and mortar stores. I was wearing cut up sheets and bandanas. Yet it seems everybody I saw on the street had masks. I wondered where they got them when they were so impossible to find. Did people just have secret stashes these things in their houses? It would seem so.

Part of the new culture that has arrived for good is that people will have masks on hand at all times.

Q. How long do I have to wear each mask for before changing to a new one?

A. There is no set time, nor recommended number of masks you should use each day. It all depends on what you are doing. However, if your mask gets dirty, wet or damaged, or if you touch the inside of it, then you should change to a new one (following the steps above). When you take it off to eat or drink, you should dispose of the old mask, wash or sanitise your hands, and replace it with a new one once you have finished eating.
