No, it's not. Covid did not shut down businesses and other aspects of our lives. Government did.

Out of 350 million, it's a rounding error. What if I told you over 3 million people die in this country every year? Do you stay up at night worry about that number?

What? You chosing to go out in public and exposing yourself to such risks? No, you might just be an idiot and nothing I say will change that. You are grandstanding twit that apparently has nothing better in life than to bitch.

Because of Covid.

Even if you think it’s just their excuse, it’s why they are doing it.

Do you do nothing to avoid death?
Do you not take any steps to avoid killing others?

I mean Something are inevitable, but to the extent they are not, I do at least the bare minimum to avoid getting killed/killing others.

You can do everything right and die in a car accident, but you should still wear your seatbelt, obey traffic laws and not drive while drunk.

so i guess it's safe to assume that every flu season you have worn a mask.

I think It’s stupid to pretend this is the same thing as flu season.

ok. i think it's stupid to pretend you are actually doing anything to prevent spread by wearing a cloth mask that doesn't seal to your face at all.

but you keep up that virtue signaling if it makes you feel better.

There is a difference between “you’re wearing the mask wrong” and “masks do nothing”

I thinknits Funny that wearing a mask is “virtue signaling” but you want to pretend your not telling the whole world you’re an a-hole by not wearing one.

You are signaling just as much

So you’re saying if you’re wearing a proper sealed mask it does nothing?

No, n95 masks are effective. There is no such thing though as a properly sealed cloth mask.

Politicians never overhype anything to score political points in your dim little world eh?

Except a car accident is vastly more likely to result in serious injury or death than getting this virus. Apparently the whole concept of asymptomatic infection is beyond your grasp, even though they may now be an order of magnitude more than symptomatic folks.

A sneeze that travels 6’ is more dangerous than one that travels 5’. 5’ is less than 6’ if you didn’t know. Mask reduce travel distance of cough sneeze spit when talking.

Why don't you care about the 61,000 people that died from influenza the previous flu season? Why didn't you just wear a mask to do your part to reduce these numbers?

Because the laws of physics regarding fluid dynamics changes at 72 inches. Some of you are clueless on how liquids aerosolize and it shows. Also have zero concept of how a cough or sneeze completely blows the seal of even a well fitted mask. Guarantee that somebody who's infected, only has very mild symptoms to the point they only think it's allergies or some transient irritation, will sneeze, remove their mask to wipe their nose (probably with said mask if it's cloth) then proceed to handle objects around them thereby bypassing any small amount infection control that mask might have provided.

"Somewhat effective" is making the case to wear them, though I sense you're trying to do the opposite.
What's so hard to understand about adding marginal utility for every one of these measures?

Wearing a mask is somewhat effective. Social distancing is somewhat effective. Washing hands is somewhat effective. Not touching your mouth is somewhat effective. Individually, none of these will absolutely prevent you from getting sick. Even doing all of them won't absolutely prevent it, but your risk for catching/spreading a virus decreases significantly.

And I hate wearing masks.

That basically again is going against everything recommended.

I don't get why people use examples of people not following recommendations to attack the recommendation.

If I told You to wear a seatbelt, you wouldn’t argue, well most people don’t wear it correctly so why should anyone wear it at all?

Take a bottle of windex and spray it in the air.Let's say that's a sneeze or spray from a person's mouth.

Now hold a mask up and spray the windex into it.

The mask will certainly hold down the amount of droplets in the air.

If you saw someone not wearing a seatbelt and someone else wearing it around their head and neck or using a piece of string tied to the door and the console across their chest, you'd consider the former an a-hole and the latter a noble citizen making an effort? Would you say the latter is substantively more protected than the former?

Who is the bigger a-hole, the guy who wears a bandanna over his mouth in the middle of massive group of people, or the guy who doesn't wear a mask and just avoids close contact with others?

Why are kids under 10 exempt from wearing a mask? Why are schools closed?
