To Mask Or Not To Mask - Make Your Own Decision On Your Own Research

by Nicholas Atgemis |

To Mask Or Not To Mask - I Don't Know The Scientific Answer, But I Trust My Intuition

STRANGE DAYS. ANYTHING I WRITE ABOUT IT WILL NO DOUBT HAVE BEEN SAID BEFORE. WE HAVE POSTED UP NEW SILK FACE MASKS. THERE HAS BEEN SOME PUSH BACK AGAINST THEM, WITH SOME OF OUR EXISTING BOW TIE CUSTOMERS ALONG WITH A TROLL OR TWO CLAIMING THEY ARE PLACEBOS AND THAT I AM TRYING TO PROFIT FROM MISFORTUNE.
I HAVE TO ADMIT, THERE ARE DIFFERENT VIEWS OUT THERE ON THE MATTER OF FACE MASKS IN THE WAR AGAINST COVID AND SOME ARE VERY CONTRASTING.
HERE ARE SOME LINKS TO ARTICLES I HAVE FOUND:
CHINESE MEDICAL EXPERTS WARN THAT MASKS HAVE PLAYED AN IMPORTANT PART IN CHINA AND SHOULD BE USED BY CITIZENS IN PUBLIC, WHILST THE CDC IN THE UNITED STATES SAYS THEY ARE NOT NEEDED.
I WOULD LIKE YOU TO MAKE YOUR OWN CONCLUSION. MOST OF OUR CUSTOMERS ARE HIGHLY INTELLIGENT HUMANS. THE DISEASE IS SAID TO BE TRANSFERRED BY DROPLETS FROM YOUR MOUTH AND LUNGS WHEN YOU SPEAK AND ESPECIALLY WHEN IN CLOSE PROXIMITY. A GOOD LIFE EXAMPLE IS LOOKING AT YOUR MOBILE PHONE SCREEN AFTER THREE MINUTES OF TALKING TO SOMEONE IN AN ANIMATED MANNER ON SPEAKER PHONE. IF I AM TRANSMITTING THIS, AND SOMEONE IS TRANSMITTING THAT TO ME, ANYTHING WHICH MIGHT MITIGATE THAT AND AT THE SAME TIME STOP ME FROM TOUCHING MY FACE, IS A GOOD THING.
REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOUR OPINION IS, I HAVE REITERATED FROM THE START THAT THESE ARE NOT N95 GRADE MASKS, COMMONLY CALLED A P2 IN AUSTRALIA. BUT I BELIEVE IN MASKS AND I BELIEVE THAT ON TOP OF THE REASONS I HAVE SAID ABOVE, THE FINAL ONE IS SOCIAL - IT SENDS A STRONG SIGNAL TO SOMEONE ELSE THAT YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR OWN HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF OTHERS AND YOU TAKE THIS DISEASE SERIOUSLY. ANYONE WHO HAS WATCHED WHAT HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA WILL KNOW THAT IT HAS BEEN FARCICAL HOW AUSTRALIANS HAVE RESPONDED TO RISING CASES IN COVID - NOT PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING, GOING TO PARTIES, LEAVING THEIR FACES UNCOVERED AND MAKING SURE THEY SQUEEZE IN A DAY AT THE BEACH AND EXERCISE AT THE MONKEY BARS.
IF I AM WRONG, I WILL APOLOGISE TO YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY. MY INTENTIONS AND MY BELIEFS LEAD ME TO PUBLISH MY PATTERN AND MAKE OUR TECHNIQUE AVAILABLE ON OUR IGTV AND YOUTUBE TO HELP OTHERS ENGAGE IN THIS AND MAKE THEM AT HOME. IT IS OF MY BELIEF, UNTIL PROVEN WRONG, THAT ANY FACE COVERING IS BETTER THAN NO FACE COVERING. BUT I WISH FOR YOU TO EXPLORE THE AVAILABLE INFORMATION FOR YOURSELF. IN THE MEANTIME, I WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE OUR OWN FACE MASKS AND AS USUAL, I WILL USE THE SAME QUALITY FABRICS I USE IN MY BOW TIES AND SHIRTS THAT YOU HAVE COME TO KNOW.
THANK YOU,
NICHOLAS.

Q: What mistakes are other countries making?
A: The big mistake in the U.S. and Europe, in my opinion, is that people aren’t wearing masks. This virus is transmitted by droplets and close contact. Droplets play a very important role—you’ve got to wear a mask, because when you speak, there are always droplets coming out of your mouth. Many people have asymptomatic or presymptomatic infections. If they are wearing face masks, it can prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others.
