    I also wouldn’t draw any conclusions from a non-reviewed study when a real life scenario seems to have contradictory results to the artificial set up lab environment. It seems they focused on coughs? Hard to tell from the little info provided.

    I wouldn’t claim cotton masks that don’t have a filter insert are good masks either. More like the bare minimum. But a good mask clearly has a tighter seal around airways than a face shield.

    I dont see a point in discussing masks at all. Thats like arguing gun rights. All youre doing is agreeing to negotiate, lol. Why even entertain that silly shit?

    Have you once considered that there might be even bigger assholes trying to use this to permantly roll back our basic rights and freedoms as human beings? Ive never seen you guys address the real concerns of others when it comes to these corona policies. You just ridicule and mischaracterize until we just tell you guys to kick rocks and leave us alone.

    I’m sure faceshields are better than nothing but if you’ve been out in public lately it’s almost impossible to keep others six feet away from you and a portion don’t wear masks. Faceshields clearly don’t form any seal around your airways when you go indoors to an environment with somewhat stagnant air circulating around so I’ll stick with a mask with a filter that does.

    We lost our rights a long time ago buddy. Look at the patriotic act. Wearing a mask is not losing your rights, give me a break with that crap. It is so boring.

    Do you get angry at needing to wear shoes and a t-shirt in a business?

    "Permanently rolling back our basic rights and freedoms" is a bullshit conspiracy theory. Period. This is a fucking pandemic. Sacrifices need to be made. Note that I didn't say ought to be made; I said they need to be made. Look around the fucking world and see that we aren't alone in dealing with it. Those countries for the most part have made those sacrifices as well.

    And here? Well from what I see Americans don’t want to social distance, Americans don’t want to wear masks, Americans don’t want to shut down businesses and schools, and even if given an option that reduces the need for all of those things, Americans will not take it, because Americans also don’t want to be vaccinated. So in other words, Americans want to do absolutely nothing to solve the problem. Americans want the pandemic to magically disappear all on its own so they don't have to change anything about the comfortable norm they're accustomed to. This is nothing to be proud of, and it's nothing to strive for. We've embarrassed ourselves on the global stage. Instead of being the responsible nation leading the charge, we're getting our shit kicked in while we whine and cry about it.

    This is what happens when you foster a culture full of self-centered, anti-intellectual dipshits, and elect corrupt retards like Donald Trump and Co, who care more about wealth, power, and political points than they do about the well-being of the nation.

    Yep. Also new cases in Belgium doubled in a week.

    Majority of cases via returning travellers (vacation season).
