no sympathy for the blatently irresponsible folks too self important to consider the rest of us. His name goes on the do-not-fly list at TSA and delta wipes his frequent flier miles, as he will not be flying anywhere else this century on any airline, anytime, anywhere.

If wearing a mask to protect your fellow humans is an affront to your sensibilities, then I really have to question who exactly raised you? Choosing a piece of fabric as the hill you choose to die on is certainly "brave". /S

Just tell your surgeon not to bother with a mask when u need your gall bladder out.. won’t protect you, right? God America is really paying the price for being the dumbest of western type countries.. Canada is stuck beside a trailer trash nation of idiots. I can’t wait for a day when we don’t have American arrogance and idiocy shoved down our throats every single day.. there is a whole world of decency out there that has had a bad case of America indigestion for years.. time for the us to just shut the hell up.

Really? The Atlantic? Yeah, they're really objective.

But, let's start and stop with the first claim...

When Trump said that, it was not a lie. A "lie" is a statement known to be false at the time it was made.

So, what did we know long after that? It wasn't until mid to late April we learned how much China and WHO were lying to us. Recall that? Probably not. You liberals were pretty clueless then and still are.

Find honest news sources.

He pulled the statement about it going away in April out of his ass. No expert would have supported such a statement. Which makes what he said a lie.

Furthermore in speaking to Bob Woodward on Feb. 7 he says (on tape): “It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu... This is deadly stuff”

There was nothing to not give reason to believe it would be rid of in short order. We had no clue how bad it would become.

That interview was in February, as you just said. What had happened at that time? There were only a few people infected in January. They were all isolated in ONE place.

The first death was not until February.

And, as I said... China and WHO were still lying to the rest of the world until WHO finally came clean in mid to late April.

So, you need to pull your own head out of your ass.

As a surgeon who has worn a mask for 40+ years in the OR, exactly why would I do that if the mask "DOES NOT WORK?" Simple answer. TO. PROTECT. YOU. Setting your political issues aside, what do you have to lose by wearing a mask?
KennyFlys
Ken Lane -2
You're practically on top of the patient. The mask is to prevent a direct application of anything spewing from your mouth or your mouth being splattered by any possible release from the patient. Such close proximity at such an angle dictates it.

Now, in the normal scheme of life in public, do you stand anywhere as close to others when talking or otherwise as you do with your patient? I rather doubt it.

As to my opposition to being forced by government to wear a mask, I prefer liberty. Congress has not suspended habeas corpus.

And, in public... unless the private enterprise requires it, I shall not wear one. And, I have the right to not patronize such stupidity. They do not work. I've give more detail in another part of the page.

In the end, if a fifty cent surgical mask blocks a biohazard, why were we wearing a $200 biohazard mask during general quarters on a Navy aircraft carrier?

KennyFlys
Ken Lane -1
In normal life, people are not standing "shoulder to shoulder". Do you walk right up on someone you do not know to have a conversation? Normal people do not.

When you go into a restaurant and pick your own seating, do you choose to sit close to another or pick a quieter place more to yourself? I always have.

My wife and I have been going to Longhorn since they reopened the dining rooms in June. The booths keep people quite isolated. Now, they have a plexiglass extension above the seat between the booths. That's a great idea and long been needed. It's not because I fear someone may turn their head up to the ceiling and cough or sneeze but it goes the distance in blocking sound from the person behind me.

Short of the grossly overactive extrovert, people were already largely social distancing themselves. And, with such distance, masks are not required but for those who want to practice for distant spitting contests.

But, as a surgeon who sees the data in the hospital, you should also be well aware of the frequency of only a virus being the killer and in more than 94% of deaths, there are two or more comorbidities. And, more than 97% are over age sixty where underlying health conditions are far more common.

Never mind the virus stats are supposed to be so dang accurate while the CDC has had the Grand Canyon sitting within the ranges of influenza statistics for over a decade. Pardon me if I don't trust those reporting the data, especially "experts" employed by government for over five decades.

But, let's destroy liberty, a $22.5T economy and put forty million people out of work, anyway. Stupidity run amuck by the left and pushed by liberal idiots in government and media.

Sweden did it the right way. And, they're losses are two-thirds of the United States with little effect on the economy short of factors affected by international trade.

That's exactly what's been going on. COVID is nothing more than a Pyschological Warfare CONstruct brought to you by the World Economic Forum, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,the CIA, John Hopkins University, the Center For Health Security, the CDC, the UN World Bank, the United Nations Foundation, China;s Center For Disease Control and Prevention, and corporate leaders from the travel, banking, pharmaceutical, media, and healthcare services industries.

Sweden did it the right way? Let's look at Sweden and the neighboring countries:

Number of cases/1M population ( https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ )

Sweden 27,544
Denmark 15,318
Germany 13,835
Norway 6,979
Finland 4,909

Oh, and the USA 44,957 (so much winning!)


As for economic impacts:


"Contrary to the idea of a trade-off, we see that countries which suffered the most severe economic downturns – like Peru, Spain and the UK – are generally among the countries with the highest COVID-19 death rate.

"And the reverse is also true: countries where the economic impact has been modest – like Taiwan, South Korea, and Lithuania – have also managed to keep the death rate low.

"Notice too that countries with similar falls in GDP have witnessed very different death rates. For instance, compare the US and Sweden with Denmark and Poland. All four countries saw economic contractions of around 8 to 9 percent, but the death rates are markedly different: the US and Sweden have recorded 5 to 10 times more deaths per million.

"Clearly, many factors have affected the COVID-19 death rate and the shock to the economy beyond the policy decisions made by each government about how to control the spread of the virus. And the full impacts of the pandemic are yet to be seen."

I don't know where that site is getting its data but it's bogus. And, did you happen to look up who funds it? Annenberg and Pew are far more honest.

First, what the hell does cases matter? The estimate in the US is actual cases are between eight and twenty-four times the confirmed number. You know, all those who are asymptomatic and never have a clue they may have been infected at some time? So, the "confirmed" count is a joke to use for any real measure other than to estimate how many are actually infected.

If you can lay the Grand Canyon within the CDC ranges for influenza over the last decade, how can you suddenly be so accurate on this thing within the same year? The answer? It is NOT possible.

Never mind all the misreporting of causes that is financially incentivized by the idiots in Congress with their extra medicare funding.

Our death rate is 0.07%. Sweden's is 0.05%. They're far ahead of us. They did not destroy their economy and did not put a fifth of working people out of a job.

South Korea and others use contact tracing. They do not have a constitution that protects privacy. We do though some liberals in cities and states are working hard to violate it.

1. That’s an opinion written by an osteopath, not an epidemiologist.
2. The study actually shows that masks do lead to fewer infections in those who wear masks.
3. The study does not investigate the more important question of whether wearing a mask by someone who is infected reduces the spread to others. That is exactly why your surgeon wears a mask.

Mr. Koz: Did you read that the blog site you list above is OPINION? And did you read one of the responses which blew this bogus claim all to hell? Here it is:
CovidQuestions • 13 days ago
I must confess to being shocked that the BMJ has published this article. I am neither anti-mask nor pro-mask but I am most definitely anti-misinterpretation of data, particularly on such a controversial issue. How on earth can this author interpret and extrapolate the results of the study - which were statistically insignificant - in a way which suggests positive cause & effect for the wearing of masks? Brophy makes two mistakes: firstly, he assumes cause and effect on the results of a field study in which, as he points out, conditions were anything but completely controlled. The results were statistically insignificant. To retrospectively perform Bayesian analysis for the study, which - crucially - was not designed for such analysis, is inappropriate. Furthermore, Brophy assumes that wearing a mask is the reason for the non-significant results obtained. He extrapolates this assumption both spatially (population-wide) and temporally, on the data, in order to make the extraordinary claim that a global policy of mask-wearing worldwide is likely to save millions of lives. There is no mention of the potential harms of innappropriate mask-wearing, for example if the wearer is unable to use the proper hygiene measures (children, people with limited access to soap & water); the duration or different locations in which masks should be worn (long duration could risk bacterial infections, for example); the type of mask; the frequency of changing; and many other considerations. I would urge the BMJ to retract this article on the basis of the above, and to employ a great deal more rigour when deciding what to publish.
KennyFlys
Ken Lane -1
Did you read that? It backs up what I've been saying. They make NO difference!

"Among the 4862 participants who completed the trial, infection with SARS-CoV-2 occurred in 42 of 2392 (1.8%) in the intervention arm and 53 of 2470 (2.1%) in the control group. The between-group difference was −0.3% point[.]"

Again, the difference in percentages who became infected is, 0.3%.

The one thing missing is the age and health demographics of the participants in each group as well as those who actually became infected.
Pachypodium
David Kozlowski 1
Once again: The primary purpose of wearing a mask is to prevent the wearer from spreading the disease to others. That study didn’t examine that. The study was also carried out while Denmark had a low positivity rate (2%). Nevertheless mask wearers had 0.3% fewer infections. Apply that number to the population of the US, and that translates to 900,000 fewer cases.
CCW1
John Prukop 0
Mr. Koz: You might as well get busy on you summer projects now while on "lock-down" by constructing a TEN FOOT HIGH CHAIN LINK FENCE around your house to keep the Mosquitoe's out! That's about the same efficacy of wearing a mask to keep a virus out. TOTAL NONSENSE. Besides that, there's NO VIRUS. COVid is a cartoon character that lives on your TEL-A-LIE-VISION set. Turn it off and the virus is cured! A virus does not exist outside the human body and is merely the shedding of toxic material from the body's cell and it does not transfer to another human being or an animal. Again, Dr. Thomas Cowan, and others, have already exposed the non-scientific fraud of the failed Louis Pasteur petrie dish theory. A MASK ONLY HARMS YOUR HEALTH, DOES NOT PROTECT ANYONE, AND CAUSES YOU IRREVERSIBLE LUNG AND BRAIN DAMAGE. Maybe once you experience hypoxia, or develop bacterial pneumonia, THEN you'll have an epiphany. Until then, you're blowing smoke with a non-provable thesis.
KennyFlys
Ken Lane -2
If you want to apply the 0.3% to the entire nation then also apply the fact that we'll never know how many actually have the virus since the leftist media and Democraps push only confirmed cases like they're actual deaths.

That changes everything. Yes, actual cases are believed to be an average of twelve times higher than confirmed cases. Now, compare the deaths against that. Even then, the misleading media does not apply the demographics of death given it matches exactly what we were told way back in April.

Ever look at the death rate and demographics? The death rate is 0.07%. The demographics show 97% of all deaths are over age sixty.

And, the CDC has said only 6% die from ONLY the virus. The remainder have two or more comorbidities to cause their death. In other words, there are those who are simply throwing the COVID-19 label in there even if they were critically ill from another ailment.

You're being scammed, people!

It is true that most who have succumbed are elderly and/or have medical co-morbidities. But remember one very important thing. They were someone's parent or grandparent who may have enjoyed one or more additional Christmas times with their loved ones. I will say no more to you, because you are ignorant and unteachable. Just please keep your distance from me and those I love.

As Graucho Marx used to claim, "SAY THE MAGIC WORD" and you'd win a few bucks. Your MAGIC word is CO-MORBIDITIES - yet when they bag and tag these individuals - they are CLAIMING they died of COVID. THAT'S A FRAUD! And yes, they may have enjoyed one or more additional Christmas times with their loved ones - HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE DISEASE THEY ALREADY HAD THAT CLAIMED THEIR LIFE - or the morphine they were being given or some other drug that pushed them over the edge to their death. The use of the word CO-MORBIDITIES in this case is totally misplaced - because as Dr. Lorraine Day has stated - NOT ONE PERSON HAS DIED OF COVID-19! It would appear that you are the one who is ignorant or unteachable. And your comment about keeping your distance - as in SIX FEET - is totally laughable.

The death rate for the infection worldwide is currently 2.3%
The death rate for the infection in the US is currently 1.93%
Worldwide the death rate for infections that have run their course is 3%

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

So far nearly 5% of the US population has contracted the disease. That is nearly 1/4 of all recorded cases worldwide.
KennyFlys
Ken Lane -3
You're looking at confirmed cases. That's a joke in itself. How many have been infected and never felt a thing, let alone never seen a doctor or greater care?

One piece estimates that to be between eight and twenty times the confirmed case count.

And, the death rate is for the entire population. That's the only consistent number because there's no way to know the actual number infected.

How is it they supposedly have such accurate numbers on this when the CDC cannot even produce accurate numbers for influenza twelve years ago? You can lay the Grand Canyon between their ranges.

I'm not going to dig through all your references. First, learn how to use paragraphs. Second, apply a summary to each and the general idea claimed.

I'm going to suspect you did nothing more than just go grab a boatload of links from Google and past them in the box.

As I've said, the studies I've read show the result that is purely a bias confirmation. They do not apply real world use of masks nor the huge variation in the type, style, material, construction and cleanliness. Those are a lot of variables which are not considered in any study I've read.

The Denmark study is the only one that simply looks at the overall use of masks.

There is NO "skyrocketing death rate" over ANY OTHER YEAR in the USA. They're FUDGING the numbers to make you BELIEVE there's a crisis and pandemic. THERE IS NO PANDEMIC. It's a well, long planned SCAMDEMIC from our GLOBAL ELITISTS friends at the Rockefeller Organization's 2010 publication (LOCK-STEP), the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and all of their philanthropic "SCAMDEMIC" money being thrown around to various institutions like Washington Global Health Alliance, et al.

We ware them to prevent infection on open wounds.

The CoVID-19 pandemic is about viral transmission. Surgical and cloth masks do nothing to prevent viral transmission. We should all realize by now that face masks have never been shown to prevent or protect against viral transmission. Which is exactly why they have never been recommended for use during the seasonal flu outbreak, epidemics, or previous pandemics.

How far away from you is the next guy's face when you're sitting in coach? What's the distance between the face in 22B from you in 22A? It's not six inches, but it isn't much more than six inches. So when that asymptomatic spreader is sitting right next to you with no mask, you are getting hosed with virus particles no matter how good the aircraft's HVAC system is working.

Delta and others are trying to run airlines in a way that might persuade concerned travelers that they've done everything they can to keep their pax from becoming infected while on board. That's how you sell tickets these days. If they were to say "no masks required" what do you think that would do to their business?

I think Delta is right on the science and I think they're right to do what they are doing. I don't like wearing a mask any more than anyone else does, but right now it's the price we pay for trying to function in an advanced, civilized society. Opting out of that should have consequences.

Ken Lane -4
So, you're wearing one of the idiotic surgical masks. You sneeze.

If it's sudden and you cannot react and cover, it goes straight forward. We're talking about without a mask in case you've not caught that.

Ordinarily, you wrap your hand over your mouth and the way most people cover their mouth, it leaves a gap at the bottom of your hand and the pressure is directed down to your lap.

Now, let's say you have a mask on. You sneeze without warning and no time to react. Your mouth is covered blocking it going forward or down since the mask is below your chin. So, where does it go? To the sides... right into those sitting next to you.

Of course, the usual irritants that usually precipitate a sneeze are not likely to be present aboard an airliner. And, if you have an internal issue causing constant coughing beyond clearing your throat, you probably shouldn't be traveling.

As I said, the stupid studies do not apply real world use of masks.

All you idiots, go doing what you do. Vote me down rather than putting forth a cogent argument. Typical sheep.

Show me the science that masks do anything to prevent the virus from getting through it. Science that shows peer reviewed studies. There is plenty of evidence that says masks don’t work. Not for viruses. If they did we would have normalized their use every flu season.

That said, when you check in with a private airline (Delta), you agree to their rules, as ridiculous as they are. Don’t like it? Write the airline and don’t use them. Sucks, but that’s the only way they will stop forcing people.
