hm, in my country at least there was no conclusive evidence from infection rates before and after making "comunity masks" mandatory... i understand the theory that they can prevent drop infection, but how much is that a risk from someone not snorting anyhow? they do not do anything against aresols.

i am very frustrated. infection rates are rising, the only answer is to do the next lockdown and to blame "deniers" on the media. i dont see ppl without the masks anymore and i have not in a long time. so where are all them deniers that are to be blamed? to me this doesnt add up

of course. i have no education in this field and so i cant really tell what is true. but it seems to me that this is a matter of politicans being incapable of revising their past decissions and adjust for reality because this would mean admiting a mistake. costs probably too. living in a country with some remnants of a social system, even having the official suggestion that fp2 masks should be worn would mean that the state had to compensate many people for the costs of them. to my calculations in my country of ~100m people this would mean about 1-2bn€/month. i think this is the real reason. saving airlines is expenisve enough i guess.

again, maybe its me who cant judge the situation right, but i really whish there where other answers but blaming and lockdowns.

how much of a placebo are paper masks and scarfs? isnt it about time to at least strongly suggest to wear more suitable masks like fp2 masks?

see, this is one part of the problem, its difficult to discuss this. if i question the effectiveness of the masks used and required, its always taken that i am against them. i am not. i am not anti-mask, i wonder if we should use better ones.

in any case, the airline observation is interesting. what masks did they make mandatory though? just any mask or did they hand out masks? if so, what masks? also i do not know much about airline ventilation, but IF they do have particle filters, these indeed might help a lot. another issue i see is that at this point most infections cant be traced anymore anyhow, this also might play a role in this.
