Facemasks

I very much doubt home made masks are effective as surely the damp material would be the perfect breeding ground for "Mr Corona". Real face masks should be left for the NHS etc. If wearing masks become compulsory I expect they will be "panic bought" and sold at higher prices on the black market by the "undesirables" that exist among us. What do you think? Sorry if that sounds to downbeat maybe its "Lockdown fever" kicking in.

Thanks all for your replies, I would not trust people to wash and reuse face masks just as you can see people not bothering with social distancing. Stay safe one and all, I was feeling tad down this morning with "lockdown fever" but did a bit of gardening and went for a walk and then felt better in myself. Reply

Good morning Polgirl, do you think the government should make free reusable face masks available to everyone should they become compulsory? Reply

The wearing of a mask is to protect OTHERS as much as anything else; to prevent your (possibly) corona-contaminated moist breath landing upon someone else ~ but the mask will need to be changed or washed as often as is practical !
The point to remember is that you could be carrying the virus for up to TWO WEEKS before you begin to feel any symptoms; by which time you could have contaminated many, many others !!

Hay fever sneezes and full beards make a mockery of the whole fashion charade. That was predictable for months, years even. Pics on telly from years ago of neat and particularly cautious little oriental women wearing 'masks' along with very occasionally the odd clean-shaven gent just didn't fit my demographic. Plain physical avoidance of ( other ) sneezy people is best, i.e. get up and move away pdq while holding one's breath ! Reply

The masks do not protect the wearer but may give some protection to others if the wearer is asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic. They trap the droplets so limiting spread. Even a home made one will stop over 50% of droplets, as does a scarf around the mouth and nose. Masks should be washed as soon as you get home. Reply

Face coverings are what is being touted for the general public... I doubt mere mortals could get (or need) medical-grade masks! Reply
