Default Fear

So today i stopped by Lowes to get some materials for replacing some window screens. They didn't have what I was looking for, so ended up at Homey Depot, which had what I wanted.

But at Lowes, up front next to the service desk, across from the paint dept, they had a large display in the aisle, consisting of masks, gloves, spray bottles, and various cleaning agents (including bleach). That's how you sell fear.

I thought about farting on the display as I walked past....but didn't do that.

before you waste your money on masks, it would be good to know if they do any good. if the virus is smaller than the mask opening size, then they are pointless. but no one has said anything in public on that matter. only that the virus is easily transmitted, can live on a surface for about 9 days, and shows itself in about 14 days.

sad but probably accurate. I've been to the Dr. recently, I have never seen so many people with masks on.

Some cases now are discovered to have taken as long as 24 days to show after contact.

There was a doctor on FOX the other day that said that the typical masks will not stop the virus from getting thru. All the workers that I've seen on TV have the full respirator type masks.

Well, I don't know anything about the Corona virus, but with regular flu viruses, the masks are not intended to prevent a virus spore from escaping the face. They are really there to stop saliva and mucus from getting into the air when the person coughs or sneezes.

My dental hygienist - who of course wears a surgical mask while she cleans my teeth - was rolling her eyes at all the idiots wearing masks. In addition to the size issue you note, these masks also have a useful life of about 15 minutes.

That's what my wife says. She worked 40 years in nursing and for awhile was the infection control manager at our local hospital.

One of my neighbors on the next block is or was an infectious control nurse. He said the same thing. He also thinks this was a bioweapon that escaped the reservation.

Quite possible/probable. China has lost a "few" doctors and I read today that the infectious disease official in Iran was just diagnosed with coronavirus.

I believe it to be far more sinister.

My wife went to the doctor Monday for her yearly and mentioned we have a trip to Cancun scheduled.
Doctor told her to get masks and take them with.
Not the crappy little paper ones, they need to be the type that has the little cartridge in them.
