It's not false, that's not an accurate statement by any means. The pandemic is very real, and masks do help. That is fact. Quote How about people who don't stick to strict hygiene measures and social distancing. Should they do the responsible thing and stay at home too? Of course. Quote Do you honestly think that those people who are wearing fabric or ill-fitting masks are not potentially dangerous? Fabric masks are not effective in blocking virus particles that may be transmitted by coughing or sneezing. Whilst they might provide some protection, it is nowhere near complete, and people need to be congnisant of that and behave accordingly. A combination of preventaive measures is necessary, and even then, total safety is not guaranteed. Masks are not the panacea people think they are. Nobody is saying they will end the virus. What they do is help. It's the best we have right now. To refuse to wear one, especially as some sort of anti government CT is just stupid and irresponsible. It's dumb, and that's what I have been saying all along. Do you not agree with that? We should try our best to do out bit. Masks are but some authoritarian draconian control move over the people. That's a childish and outright stupid thing to say That is what Bee proposed. Your argument of a small percentage of population with mental disorders is a different issue the way I see it. Quote Sure the ideal scenario is one where everyone wears masks, maintains good hygiene, and respects social distancing, but that scenario is, practically speaking, impossible. As long as those people who cannot wear masks stay clean and keep a distance, there is no reason why they should have to hole up somewhere until the crisis is over. Ok I don't get this. How is this different to what I'm saying? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
