So CDC suggests to wear a cloth but not a mask, is this for fashion purpose?

Telling people masks are useless and telling people masks should be reserved for healthcare workers are different. It’s a lie.

CDC sucks. If people can have the virus while asymptomatic how does it make sense they were saying only people who are symptomatic should wear masks?? 😤

I have a feeling this thing is airborne; CDC didn’t want everyone to panic buy all the masks. Now that stock piles are decent, theyre slowly leaking information

It’s to save actual masks for healthcare workers and to hopefully slow the spread by having more people wearing some sort of covering over their mouths.

A lot of people are doing it. Hospitals and other health care facilities are requesting that they do. The situation is really tough - my cousin is a nurse and was given just one mask and was asked to keep reusing it until they got more. She sadly caught the virus (she is now thankfully recovering).

A cloth mask will be as or more effective as an unfitted paper mask. The top end masks, called N95 respirators, are in short supply right now and doctors and nurses need them. You also need to get fitted for the them so that they seal around your mouth and nose, which most people haven’t been. If you’re wearing the wrong size it will limit the effectiveness. The research on the effectiveness of masks for healthy people is mixed, but should help slow spread since so many are asymptomatic carriers

Also all masks are ineffective if you touch them as you’re taking them off and don’t wash your hands

Well, I didn’t know but I’m happy to learn this. I would have done the same thing probably if I lived by that cliff. Better than watching someone attempt to take their lives.
