    CDC slammed for warning that cloth masks don't offer protection from wildfires

    Smoke particles are larger than Covid-19 virus so....

    Over what?

    The CDC just told us that cloth masks were ineffective against particles of smoke because they are too small to be stopped by a cloth mask.

    Covid-19 particles are even smaller than smoke particles.

    So, if it can't stop smoke, it can't stop a virus.

    Did you have anything to add?

    You just had to ask that didn't you......................
    There are only two options as I see it.
    Either I'm right, or there is a sinister
    conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

    They say it is not effective to protect against smoke but, the director told Congress today that masks are more effective than a vaccine!
    If that’s the case, why the push to get a vaccine? It makes no sense.

    And I just got issued a box from work that says right on it that it isn't effective against Covid19....
    So I guess the road we are going down again is showing that Zen isn't gonna convince us as he is wrong.
    Medical masks are supposed to be single short term use. Not hung off the rearview mirror or carried in a pocket and reused for several days.
    Cloth masks are like constantly wearing on your face the snotty handkerchief your grandfather carried in his pocket on your face!
    If any of you actually know anything about the design of respirators you would realize how little these two options can do to protect you.
    Respirators for chemicals and dust are designed with specific materials to absorb and filter to a specified micron rating. They also require fit testing and you cannot have facial hair as it prevents a proper seal.
    But all that doesn't matter as the mask that grandma made before Cuomo or Wolf sent her to the nursing home to die will save your life!

    Smoke NO....COVID Yes! LMFAO Straight from the CDC site: "Cloth masks will not protect you from wildfire smoke.

    Cloth masks that are used to slow the spread of COVID-19 by blocking respiratory droplets offer little protection against wildfire smoke. They do not catch small, harmful particles in smoke that can harm your health.

    Although N95 respirators do provide protection from wildfire smoke, they might be in short supply as frontline healthcare workers use them during the pandemic."

    So the CDC is basically saying the same thing that they've been saying all along, that simple face coverings aren't designed to protect YOU from GETTING covid, they are to decrease the chance of YOU giving it to SOMEONE ELSE. But wait, I can't possibly give it to someone else, I don't have a fever and am not sick. That is the insidious thing about this particular disease, and it's been well known in the US for many months, but it's a tough concept for people to get their heads around.

    So if I'm understanding this, the mask will stop me from spreading the virus but won't stop me from getting the virus? So it'll stop particles from getting out but not from getting in. Still makes no sense to me...
