As we continue through the year with the Covid-19 irrational panic exacerbating problems I’ve observed some things regarding the “new normal.”
1. Much of the country, the world really, has lost the ability to reason. We’ve seen this before with things like the kabuki theater performed as “airport security”, like not letting nail clippers or Medal of Honor through.
- Many places are currently requiring people to wear facemasks while out in public. Yet, no training has been given to the general public on how to effectively wear the masks. Plus, fabric facemasks are almost useless against a virus, and still fairly ineffective against bacteria. Medical masks aren’t much better.
- We’re told that we’re to wear the masks not for our protection, but to protect others. Yet, if they were effective they would protect us as well. Unless you’re wearing an N-95 or some other specialized mask there is no one way valve.
- If the masks are actually stopping the virus they need to be sterilized and/or disposed of as a biohazard. How many biohazard waste containers have you seen around town? Other than the ones I see at work, I’ve not seen a single one.
