- Re: That Danish study..
OK Once again
The study was to see if the chances of a mask wearer getting infected by a non mask wearer made a difference. It doesnt.
It was NOT a study to see if the the mask wearer reduces their chances of spreading it. A mask directs water droplets up and down not straight out. And with less force - therefore the infection radius is also reduced. You are protecting others if you wear one. Not yourself. If they wear one they are protecting others - that can include you. The study was a mask wearer among non mask wearers
Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that in the week ending 6 November, deaths registered for any reason were 14% (1481) above the five year average across England and Wales. But within this there was wide regional variation, with sharp rises in the north of England and Wales but no excess deaths in London.
The number of deaths involving covid-19 increased for the ninth consecutive week, the data show. There were 1937 deaths involving covid-19 registered in England and Wales in the week ending 6 November, an increase of 558 (40%) from 1379 the previous week.
(so 1481 in a week from any reason- not sure where your 8 comes from)
C)Again its irrelevant if you only consider the mask wearer. Not the people they may spread it to. I dont want to lockdown - so any measures that dont infringe too much (like wearing a mask and reducing the chances of spreading it) are welcome - especially if it means everything else can be normalish.
There is a good thread below on why the time to produce these vaccines is way down on normal. Not to mention the money thrown at them will be astronomical .
Even if a vaccine only works short term (and remember many vaccines require a booster) - if it stops a spread for 9 months worldwide, chances are the virus will die out as it will not be able to infect people. A virus requires hosts. If it cant find a host it has nowhere to go.
