So what happens if we comply, all wear masks,
And the numbers of new cases continue to go up?

What will JBE blame it on if we decide to buckle down for a few weeks? Also, what will he do if there is a protest or demonstration larger than 50 people?

It's the perfect plan. If everyone wears masks and, after a couple of weeks, the case count continues to rise, we will have proven all the experts wrong! Think about it, it's a win/win. If it works and COVID disappears as some "experts" claim, then its over. If not, the experts are idiots. How can you possibly lose?

I'm in.

More crap will be closed down because we'll continue to ignore the reduced death count.

It's a win win for the states and hospitals as they get more Federal money. The news gets more viewers and clicks and liberals get to use it politically against Trump. Rich people will be fine and so will the poor on Government subsidies.

Once again middle class working Americans will be hurt the most over this and be expected to grin and bear it.

I'm in Texas this weekend. They have had a mask mandate and it's a joke. People are wearing cotton mask and things that are basically cut off shirt sleeves thinking that will stop any kind of small particles. It's like using a chainlink fence to keep mosquitoes out.

Perhaps this would happen.

They’ll still say we aren’t doing enough. Not enough compliance.

re: So what happens if we comply, all wear masks,
I keep hearing, “ if everyone would just comply and wear masks, then we can get back to normal soon.” However I would like to hear some numbers from this crowd. At what point statistically, would it be “safe” to open everything back up? As in what number of cases/deaths/hospitalizations? Seems like this just keeps getting moved around and the goalpost keep moving.

That would be unlikely. But I would love to find out if that was the case.

I just picked up an iced coffee and no one in the coffee shop was wearing a mask except the folks behind the counter and me. Yesterday I was at Harbor Freight and other than me and one or two other folks and the workers, no masks.

I put mine on when I walk in, and take it off when I walk out. There is a bottle of hand sanitizer in the cup holder in the console of my car which I use when starting the car.

It isn't hard or inconvenient.

If you wear a mask and social distance, how exactly will the numbers go up?

i'm all against masks, and you're a good dude, but this analogy is terrible

the problem is there is no exception for people with antibodies. if i dont have the virus i'm saving nobody by wearing a mask. the problem is asymptomic people not wearing a mask does spread it. masks don't help from catching the virus, they only help prevent it from spreading

Idk, maybe we should try it instead of doing nothing while people die and the world laughs at us

They also wear masks in general when sick because they’re considerate and not whiny pussies like Americans.

re: So what happens if we comply, all wear masks,
This is basically where we are now. For all the fuss about masks, the overwhelming majority of people are wearing them. Some worn incorrectly, some crappy masks, but compliance has been pretty high. But some are so emotionally invested in the mask thing that they don't realize that its effectiveness is limited. It has never been the silver bullet they think it is.

As for what to do, there is only one answer: Carry on with our lives and let this virus run its course. The shutdowns were a failed and futile strategy that accomplished nothing.

Everything in reading is saying asymptomatic people very rarely spread it.

The reality is that too most people, this is equivalent to a cold or sinus infection in the symptoms they experience. And they are treating it as such by going about daily lives.

Maybe where you’re at, but overall this just isn’t the case.

I’ve been in Florida, Alabama, Missouri, and Kansas over the past 2-ish months. KC is the only place where mask-use is high. Virtually non-existent in Florida.

re: So what happens if we comply, all wear masks,
There is a difference between being truly asymptomatic...as in having NO symptoms at all to only having minor symptoms (which means you are still symptomatic, even if those symptoms are minor).

And then there is pre-symptoms. The time period before you actually do develop symptoms where you are still infectious and could be spreading it unknowingly to others.
