re: Alright, season or no?
And then he held a press conference with a bunch of front line doctors who told us that Hydrochloroquine, zinc and Zithromycin cure COVID. I have a Dr friend who has prescribed it for an obese diabetic who recovered quickly from COVID. He will definitely take it if he contracts.

Given the incredibly dirty nature of Democrat politics these days (see fake dossiers, weaponized intelligence agencies, brutal abuse of Michael Flynn, “peaceful” protests and finally the Barr “hearing” yesterday) yeah, I think that a lot of backroom malfeasance has transpired to keep COVID a useful political weapon to use against Trump. Numerous stories slip out describing ridiculously inflated numbers of positive cases and Deaths in auto accidents and by lightening strike counted as COVID deaths. Faucci couldn’t make up his mind about face coverings. Don’t do it, no do do it. Anti-lockdown protests are dastardly disease spreading mobs. “Peaceful” rioters, however? Crickets. It”s okay to sit at a roulette or a black jack table, but not to go to church.

So, yeah, color me pretty skeptical about this “pandemic” and save me the sanctimonious anti-Orangeman rhetoric. Play football. 95% of people are asymptomatic. If you are afraid, by all-means don’t play or go to the games. Otherwise, let’s get back to life. Quarantine the sick, not the well.

I am currently talking to a nurse down in New Orleans and she tells me they treat Covid-19 patients with the same concoction (Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc, and Zithromycin) and have been doing so since late-March/early-April. I have no freaking idea why this has become such a political football since the treatment has been found to work more often than not, but here we are.

It doesn’t have to do with that lol.


Actually it does and I am not referring to how effective it is. It is a concept that CDC and every medical agency is advocating for to help protect and prevent. These guidelines provide somewhat of a protection shield for businesses, school, and sporting events. If these types of facilities could guarantee that people would follow the guidance we would see more open.

No one is expecting for this to be over by the fall or anywhere in the near future. But doing everything possible to help prevent, whether full proof or not, you would think would be easy to follow but we have so many people that will continue to refuse and so we are here now with the possibility of the things we enjoy suspended.

Again over something so simple.

A Dr in Bham starting to doubt how accurate these test are, so he sent in 10 tests, in which all he did was swipe the test material against a grape fruit. All ten came back positive for Covid 19.

However, they still don't work. If they did the manufacturing companies wouldn't put the disclaimer on the box.


Reaching are we? Same thing can said about condemns but they still can be effective. Mask are the same way. They may not be 100% effective but they help. If not why would doctors wear them during surgery?

One thing the ncaa and coaches are talking about is basically have your team divided into 2 groups, in which the first and third team practice together and the 2nd and 4th practice together. They will try to keep them totally separated during the week. Cant have a QB meeting or a any type of position meeting where they are all together.

This is just a guess, I’m no surgeon. But maybe it’s because they have someone cut open with their organs exposed?
Maybe that’s why they wash the frick outta of their hands also?

Thank you for enlightening the world on this. We had no idea.

Absolutely not.

Nope.

The CDC even admits face masks due nothing to prevent respiratory illness transmission

quote:

Disposable medical masks (also known as surgical masks) are loose-fitting devices that were designed to be worn by medical personnel to protect accidental contamination of patient wounds, and to protect the wearer against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids (36). There is limited evidence for their effectiveness in preventing influenza virus transmission either when worn by the infected person for source control or when worn by uninfected persons to reduce exposure. Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.


But, hey, what do I know?

And here's the part you either didn't read or conveniently ignored.

quote:

In lower-income settings, it is more likely that reusable cloth masks will be used rather than disposable medical masks because of cost and availability (38). There are still few uncertainties in the practice of face mask use, such as who should wear the mask and how long it should be used for. In theory, transmission should be reduced the most if both infected members and other contacts wear masks, but compliance in uninfected close contacts could be a problem (12,34). Proper use of face masks is essential because improper use might increase the risk for transmission (39). Thus, education on the proper use and disposal of used face masks, including hand hygiene, is also needed.

re: Alright, season or no?
I'm not getting into this argument about mask wearing. All of you in this thread do what you want to do.

I wear a mask because my age group and my husband has scarred lungs and in bad health. We barely go anywhere.

But the information out there is confusing. There are two sides in this country and both are tearing the country apart instead of working together to help the people. This is the worst I've seen in my years on this planet.

Anyway, I just wanted to post this funny that my son showed me the other day. Sorry is it has already been posted....

The reality is no matter what info is out there good or bad we still have people that can not think for themselves. Trump nor Pelosi guide me but for some it is the end all and feel the need to be sheep.

By the way wasn't Trump who refused to wear a mask and endorse it but now is pushing it as patriotic. All of those in DC are idiots at this in regards to the virus.JMO

re: Alright, season or no?
Again I never said masks worked just our government is using it as a guideline for reopening. If we as a whole could demonstrate we could follow such a simple guideline we may back to doing the things sooner then later. Not a hard concept to be honest.

That meme is perfect and actually common sense. If everyone is wearing a mask it means the probability of infection decreases because those who are infected and don't know won't transfer it easily unknowingly.

Your deep concern for politics, as usual, is strictly a personal issue. I'm more than capable of speaking about mask from a practical and reasonable perspective. I might even get me a T-shirt made that says, "COVID-19, It's Science Stupid"

Trump has done his share of politics as far as making wearing these masks a political issue. All democrats wear mask, all republicans choose not to. All protesters are democrats and all republicans love their policemen. Who in their right mind would want to get pulled down into these stupid and senseless arguments? Not this rabbit.

Apparently you didn't read it.

They followed 10 different studies and came to the conclusion there is zero evidence wearing a mask prevents transmission.

But, in theory, it should.

Good Lord.

I did read it. I also read the studies they cited, which they base that belief on and which suggest that everyone wearing a mask - infected or not - reduces the odds of transmission. The portion of the research you posted only indicates that either the infected or the uninfected wearing a mask has no effect on transmission rather than both of them wearing a mask. There is substantial evidence that both people wearing a mask reduces the odds of transmission.
