    Default More bad news for the mask faithful

    This time, from Nature:

    There were no positive tests amongst 1,174 close contacts of asymptomatic cases.

    ________________

    Not sure how long they are going to be able to keep the mask mandates afloat under the guise of ‘science’ after they lose Nature. I’m sure they will think of a way.

    No [zero] positive tests arose out of over a thousand close contacts of asymptomatic cases. Intuitively, one wouldn’t expect a high rate of transmission from asymptomatic cases and this study confirms it.

    Zero out of a thousand surprises me though. That’s 0/1000. Not even one or two.

    I’m sure someone will come up with a reason why healthy people need to be wearing masks.

    This was post-lockdown. Glad to see you’re now advocating that method.

    From your article:

    “Public health measures for the prevention and control of COVID-19 epidemic, including wearing masks, keeping safe social distancing in Wuhan should be sustained. Especially, vulnerable populations with weakened immunity or co-morbidities, or both, should continue to be appropriately shielded.“

    Keep floundering, 61. Your stubborn ignorance is amusing.

    This bug has been on the loose since Sep/Oct 2019, and our "experts" are still trying to figure out if there is asymptomatic transmission.....

    It’s over, so you can’t invoke Trump anymore.

    So, how is it they couldn’t even wring one [1] transmission out of 1100 asymptomatic cases?

    Not amusing, merely sad, and it's stupidity more than ignorance.

    What is the payoff for doctors, and politicians to convince people that masks are helpful in stopping Corona if they are not? Why are rightys so disposed to squabbling.? Doctors and epidemiologists tell you to wear masks because they work. The science is there. The tests show it Doctors have worn masks on pandemics and in hospitals for many years. They simply and factually work. A lack of PPE has resulted in many nurses and doctors getting sick and many dying. Many nursing home staff died from a lack of PPE. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/art...nited%20States.

    Their finding, you fucking idiot, was that after a complete lockdown of a few months, the viral load on those 1,000 or so asymptomatic cases was so low that there was no transmission. That has ZERO to do with people who are infected with COVID and are in such early stages that they are asymptomatic, but still shedding.

    Good to hear that you’re a proponent of total lockdown to achieve those ends.

    “Public health measures for the prevention and control of COVID-19 epidemic, including wearing masks, keeping safe social distancing in Wuhan should be sustained. Especially, vulnerable populations with weakened immunity or co-morbidities, or both, should continue to be appropriately shielded.”
