I was so heartened to see how so many people went ahead and adapted to wearing masks. I saw it in New York, Illinois, Florida. And it’s been distressing to see how many people I see in the streets in the last few weeks who’ve just given up on masks.

thanks for using your platform to remind people COVID is real and still happening and masks are important sheila!! it's been so shitty to become the "mask police" among my friends lately
  4:39pm BH:

It wouldn't shock me if there's a masks/no-masks split for protests too.

Of course by now, there's probably a few more things that have to be done than just saying "masks". The bad news is that the things that would need to be done are gonna be less effective when done a second time.

Great advice about the masks. Sheila, you make every Friday better! xoxoxoxoxoxo

I just went out for a walk in our neighbourhood in Houston, possibly the worst hit city currently, and almost no one was wearing a mask. We just went on Red Alert this morning so it's terrifying and ideological that people are ignoring recommendations..

Be a Barrier - not a Carrier.
You may have no symptoms. Don't matter.
No one knows when you are immune or not.
There are children who have gotten over symptoms - & then their immune system goes into overdrive & critical shock.
People who have blood clots afterwards : lung, liver, heart - brain failure. Maybe forever.

I happen to be in Florida right now, the Republican governor who’s been typically sluggish in his responses just announced a few hours ago that he’s shutting down every bar in the state, because they “reopened” with a set of guidelines, and people mostly just ignored them. So infection rates are soaring in the bar-going population.

There are people who say that we need to build herd immunity
- & that is true.
It is a Novel virus - New.
We need to develop a new immunity.
The idea is to flatten the curve so Hospitals & Systems are not overwhelmed!
- & - so people DO NOT DIE.
We want as few Fatalities as possible until there is a vaccine &/or even better treatments.
About this there is no specific certainty - no date to mark confidently on your calendar - @ this time.
Then there is the actual Malice of some who would be happy to have us Die & Never Vote or protest or anything else. & don't underestimate that - ! They've denied us Health Care already before this...

There is sort of an iceberg illusion with covid cases where a certain amount of the iceberg/cases are not visible/known.

So, if they were able to do 500k tests on a day in April (instead of 100-200k) then there would have been more positives (duh). But since they didn't... it's possible the people with unknown covid in April got to pass it to people who pass it to other people and those family trees are being found right now.

Bad news is that it's probably not possible to figure out how many unknown cases are out there right now since there's people who just won't notice it.

(insert disclaimer about self-reporting and YouGov polling here)

71% of people in the US say they've worn masks in public. Higher than Germany (64%), Canada (58%), the UK (31%), and Norway (5%)

I suspect people in Germany/Canada/UK/Norway are a little more confident than Americans of their ability to have an illness without serious financial implications.

Some of the mask mandate here is about the flaws in the US health care system too.

Define 'mask in public' & how the question was presented. If I'm walking far from anyone, I don't wear it. I'm in small-town NewHampshire. If I go in anywhere - anywhere AT ALL - I wear it - & if I get near anyone outside.
Also - the USA isn't having a Second Wave. It never ended the First! That is different also.
We have in fact squandered much of our sacrifices by not being united in this.

Rev: hence the disclaimer about self-reporting.. I'd think asking people to estimate how often they wear masks would be a bit of a task too.

The mask skeptics in a place with the NHS are probably a little more cocky about their decision than even the mask skeptics around the USA.

@Handy smart duck! I've been having a little debate with my neighbors about the existence of a blue-headed mallard that has been swimming around here. The typical argument is that it's just the way the light hits the iridescence, but I've seen him with other ducks (always the leader in a line of 2-4) and he's always blue even when the others change color in the sun. Finally had someone with me when I saw him yesterday who admitted he indeed was different from the rest.
