Unless you then sleep with the mask all night, I don't see how it could help.

Have you not been out in the last 2-3 months to see that everything is back to normal and people just had enough? They don't care anymore. It's only the few left here on EF that are making the virus more dangerous that really is, starting from day one.
This has been my experience too. I've never even met anyone who wears a mask regularly or supports them in general.

It's something younger people do, apparently Viagra plus lubrication makes it possible for the rest.

Just go shopping in any of the cantons that donít have mandatory masks, I would estimate less than 5% of shoppers are wearing them.

Re: Coronavirus

Frightening stuff in The Standard. Imagine being a professor of theoretical epidemiology at The University of Oxford and struggling to get scientific papers published this Covid pandemic is starting to have a whiff of the climate change debate about it.

I’ve also highlighted something in bold which should be of interest to our friend robogobo.

Quote:
But Professor Gupta also revealed the toll of her different approach. “We’ve found it difficult to publish our work in mainstream journals,” she said, adding “sadly anything that deviates from the consensus has been met with criticism – not simply of the science, but we’ve been labelled as saying things that are dangerous.”

She rejected being bracketed with libertarian lockdown sceptics, saying her opposition came from the left. “I personally think that only thinking along the lines of eliminating coronavirus, without giving heed to the consequences on the disadvantaged young and globally, is a dereliction of our duties as global citizens”.

It's very confusing. I went to do shopping first in Zug: no mask required, some people wearing them. I didn't know so I took mine but didn't wear it.
Then continued in Zurich: everyone wearing the mask.

Yep we are finding the same.
Our nearest supermarket is an Aldi and I was really surprised to go in there the other day and see only about half of the people wearing a mask. I then realised that it is actually over the border in canton Bern where masks are not required in stores.

I do find it interesting bc it illustrates exactly the problem with folks who don't actually know where they fall on the spectrum. These issues are a litmus test. If she's "concerned" for the economic consequences that disadvantage certain groups, but not vehemently in favor of the government stepping in to assist those groups, then she's rightly being bracketed with Libertarians, regardless of whether she rejects it or not. She's no lefty. Plenty on the left are concerned, and they know exactly what the solution is. Libertarians reject lockdown because they don't believe the government's job is to assist the people in times of crisis, that is, not until the crisis reaches their doorstep.

I'm not sure which is more frightening... How delusional you are or how unaware you are that you're delusional.

Do you seriously think that everyone who has to go out to get groceries or go to work to pay their rent and feed their kids, etc. doesn't care about catching the coronavirus? Do you seriously think that people who don't barricade themselves at home and never leave their house don't care about catching the coronavirus or don't mind if they do catch it?

You are completely delusional if you think that people don't care if they catch COVID-19 simply because they have to go the grocery store or the post office or have their hair cut, etc. Half the people I see waking in and out of the grocery store are choosing to use hand sanitizer. Why would they be doing that if they didn't care about catching the virus?

You could seriously use some work on your basic logic and critical thinking skills.
You're just as delusional if you think that because people wear masks (only in enclosed places) and use hand sanitizer, it somehow makes you less likely to catch the virus. It reduces the risk, but for how long? We will have to live with this thing for months... A great many of us will eventually be exposed to it... just look at the numbers, they're constantly rising. But fortunately, few are hospitalized.

The best way to make sure your chances of infection (and transmission) are as low as possible is to be a complete loner, live by yourself at home, do everything by yourself outside (groceries, work, gym, cinema...) and keep your distance with strangers. Nothing to do with mandatory masks in shops. You could be meeting a couple of friends in a park who are not wearing one because it's not mandatory and you'd be more vulnerable there. Same thing if you have roommates.

Last time I checked, "less likely to catch" and "reduced risk" are the same thing. You think that's delusional?

Funny, you deleted the part of my sentence that renders your response a bit vain.
