Default Mask Up and Shut Up

COVID-19 transmission would go down if we spoke less, or less loudly, in public spaces. Why aren’t more people saying so?
Quote:
Covid-19 researchers have rightly extolled the virtues of masks, hailed the necessity of ventilation, and praised the salutary nature of outdoor activities. But another behavioral tactic hasn’t received enough attention, in part because it makes itself known by its absence. That tactic is silence.

Yes, it is finally time to talk, in this pandemic, about the importance of not talking in this pandemic.

“Every route of viral transmission would go down if we talked less, or talked less loudly, in public spaces,” Jose L. Jimenez, a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, who studies disease transmission, told me. “This is just a very clear fact. It’s not controversial.”
Quote:
Silence is golden as an antiviral strategy because of how this disease spreads. The coronavirus seems to move primarily through viral particles that erupt from our faces when we sneeze, cough, talk, or sing. Some of these particles are heavy enough to splash on a nearby surface or fall quickly to the ground. Those are called large droplets. They are large only in comparison with the smaller globs that spray from our mouths and linger in the air in a swirling particle cloud. These are called aerosols.
Quote:
Viral particles hitch a ride out of our bodies on these droplets and aerosols. They travel through the air—droplets, for a few seconds; aerosols, for several minutes—and can lodge in the noses, throats, and lungs of other people. Thus conveyed by the free transit of our exhalations, the virus travels to a new host.
Quote:
The goal of COVID-19 public-health guidance is to shut down this viral transit system: Good ventilation disperses aerosol clouds; distancing reduces other people’s vulnerability to these particles; masks block them from our mouths and noses.

But what if we tried to limit the production of these virus-laden particles before they even left our bodies? That’s where volume control comes in.

Talking less, more quietly, or not at all limits the manufacture of both large droplets and aerosols. When you breathe or whisper, your respiratory system doesn’t emit large droplets. Jimenez told me that, compared with yelling, quiet talking reduces aerosols by a factor of five; being completely silent reduces them by a factor of about 50.

“The truth is that if everybody stopped talking for a month or two, the pandemic would probably die off,” Jimenez said. While still emphasizing the importance of distancing, he elaborated that without any close-contact communication, it would be difficult for this virus to continue moving between people.

Stick your opinions where the sun does not shine.

You take care of you and I will take care of me. If you are scared to be out in public, stay home. The rest of us will go on with our lives and deal with the big, cruel world just as humanity has done since they first walked on the Earth. You hide under your bed and we will let you know when it is safe to come out. Don't hold your breath!

The ruling elite would love for us to mask up and be silenced. That's not going to happen. Yes, there are still a bunch of brainwashed sheeple, mostly on the left for some reason, who will comply with whatever someone in authority tells them to do, but the unnecessary mask mandates and shutdowns have caused many to awaken to the unjust control that the few have over the many. The few have power because of acquiescence, not because they have a legitimate right to rule others. Many are realizing this for the first time, so that is a positive outcome of the unjust mandates and shutdowns.

I will neither mask up, nor will I shut up. I know how to recognize lies when I hear them. Unfortunately, you don't seem to have that same capability.

She thrives on lies told to her by those in power. That is why she advocates for big government. She needs someone to take care of her as she has apparently decided that she cannot take care of herself.

OK, so why are so many on the left is marching in the streets and shouting day and night?
what's up with that?
Beam in the eye much?
Shouldn't they stay home and shut up too?
Why aren't they showing the way for all of us recalcitrant mask debunkers and people trying to make a living?

I used to be a mask debunker.
Not now.
Since August 24, we have lost 13 people to covid at the healthcare facility where I work.
GetAClue and Gordon more than likely know about that, since they are pretty close to my area.
Covid is real.
It's sneaky.
It's vicious.
As a nurse I can tell you this has not been fun.

Lollie,
I don't wish to sound mean or petty but of those who passé,,,; Did they wear their masks?

If so, how did they then contract the disease? If they did not wear them, then why not?

Yes this COVID-19 is a serious disease. We must do what we canto protect ourselves and those we love. Do we really know how to do that? Or are we just making educated guesses?
