Suggesting Masking To Go On Indefinitely?

Most interesting to me started at the 6 minute mark; "trusted messengers."

As for masks, I envision a section of the US (at least) keeping one in their pocket in case they come across a sign saying Masks Required. That's what I've been doing all along. And I suppose there'll also be the section that will keep wearing one even in their own cars while driving. If masks are required at workplaces and schools, I can envision people pushing for enhanced ventilation systems as an alternative (and that'll be another cash-cow for states and corporations, so green lights on that).

What I don't see happening is American people quietly accepting laws that prohibit choice regarding masks and vaccines.

I found Fauci's suggesting that masking knocked out the flu (to almost zero) when it didn't stop covid to fall somewhere between "say what" and " isn't that convenient". Fauci has, for better or worse, now become fodder for the cartoonists.

When I saw this, I wondered too until I read that it’s recommended if you’re going directly from one place to another another. No cross contamination from taking on and off.

Since both of us are vulnerable, I expect to wear a mask for a long time and will definitely do so if near an anti-vaxxer. Or on an airplane.

Let's just hope and pray those who're vulnerable don't catch anything serious, regardless of what they do or don't do. Taking responsibility for your own health is to your credit, IMO.

With the droplet vs aerosol argument, masks would prevent or minimize spread of the "regular flu", though. I can buy it.

So long as reports continue to sift-in related to side-effects, deaths, even the possibility of the altering of ones genetic makeup account these vaccinations, A, I 100% will not consider being vaccinated, B, I hope mask wearing measures continue to be a mandatory seasonal measure when common cold bugs and viruses are at their height, and C, top figures failed to providing the world with truthful, no-nonsense, absolutely proven data related to this deadly virus at the start, and so account of their incompetence, I'm out.

There is no amount of information now that can, or will ever convince me on getting vaccinated, and common sense tells me there are untold numbers of others just like myself who have been permanently put-off by the conflicting and empty words of top authorities as well.

There are three main key issues related to Covid-19 that I wish would go away, and those three things are as follows.

A. Those who keep saying... "the sooner everyone get's vaccinated, the sooner we can all get back to normal".
B. The misinformation surrounding Covid-19.
C. Those who continue to go to the defense of scientists and top authorities, i.e., "no one knew", "it's a learning experience for all", "we're all learning along the way", "as time goes on we will all learn more about this virus".

The only thing I have learned about this virus and the associated vaccines that were rushed along and into production, is that morals, standards, and scruples were scrubbed from the clipboard to make way for the general populous to be experimented on like a petri dish of guinea pigs.

No one knows a bloody damn thing about the virus or the vaccines (other than the basics and what has surfaced to date), yet everyone is a spokesperson for the big pharmaceutical companies. "The benefits outweigh the risks".

To all those people, buzz off!

I quite sure that was your reaction.

That's always the plight of being a public figure. I'm sure Dr. Fauci pays no mind to such buffoonish detractors.

No, he said that people might conceivably elect to wear masks, as data shows mask wearing(and other measures) directed at Covid spread also drastically reduced the annual flu season.
Well, hello to you too. It was really nice of you to come along and answer the question I asked. Did you not trust the video to provide the answer to people who might inquire? It was a fair question given Fauci's trajectory of responses.

On the contrary, the posted video was quite clear, those who did watch it would learn directly what Dr. Fauci did say.

Some people I know are planning to wear their masks every winter, as even the people who usually get a cold or the flu every year haven't gotten it this year. The masks are getting the credit for that. It not only keeps out the coronavirus, it keeps out a lot of others too.

I doubt that I would ever do that, as I find the masks very difficult to breathe in, especially while walking outside. But just as many do in other countries, some people all over the world will continue wearing the mask for a variety of reasons.

I do think Dr. F meant they would be worn seasonally but what is going to happen every winter? Masks mandates to prevent people from catching the flu? It just seems extreme. As long as it's not mandated, I don't care what other people decide to do. It's their choice.

How would you know if you are near an anti-vaxxer? Also, if you are vaccinated, if you catch the virus - according to the Studies.. you should get a mild case. Maybe I am missing something??? Hopefully they will come up with a better vaccine soon. However, something is better than nothing.

What really gets my goat, Chic, is people who get sick and carry on as if life is normal. I'm referring to the common cold and flu bug season.

Personally, I would love to see a mandatory seasonal mask wearing order implemented starting in the fall and ending in the early spring for such.

Last year, I predicted that some "experts" would credit masking & 6-ft social distancing to fewer flu cases & I've been laughing ever since.
They're relying on people being so impressed by credentials, they'll robotically believe anything they're told. We have many "Flu seasons" where there are very few cases - long before Covid & masks.
But why should Fauci miss a chance to look like an angel from above? 😂

Unfortunately, I won’t know with strangers. There have been some very vocal anti-vaxxers locally. If I can’t avoid them, I’ll wear a mask.

Do you work or need to? Do you live in a mask mandate state?
