Living somewhat prosperously in this pandemic boils down to one thing -- WEAR THE FUCKING MASK.
After like a minute I forget I'm even wearing the damn thing. A little compromise of some "personal freedoms" principle for the greater good is not an onerous request.
WEAR THE FUCKING MASK.
You now, based on science.
Two compelling case reports also suggest that masks can prevent transmission in high-risk scenarios, said Chin-Hong and Rutherford. In one case, a man flew from China to Toronto and subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. He had a dry cough and wore a mask on the flight, and all 25 people closest to him on the flight tested negative for COVID-19. In another case, in late May, two hair stylists in Missouri had close contact with 140 clients while sick with COVID-19. Everyone wore a mask and none of the clients tested positive.
I'm not condoning that sick people are out and about, but the results speak for themselves and more examples of cases like this are piling up.
