1/ #Masks in Victorian hospitals- I hear many hospitals in Melb are masking all staff as per a DHHS directive last week. But, many aren't masking patients and visitors! This is a problem so obvious it doesn't warrant spelling out. Thoughts: #covid19aus #covid19vic
2/ Some services like Western Health are giving masks to patients/visitors, which is wise as they service #lockdown hotspots. Others probably would love to, but we have a #PPE shortage that we've improved but not fixed. But there is a potential solution:
3/ If we can't get a surgical mask/shield on every patient/visitor going into a metro melbourne hospital then should we consider cloth #masks? Cheap, reusable, people can supply their own. As effective? No. Contamination issues? Yes. But the aim is risk reduction, not elimination

For 4 years, I've steadfastly avoided politics on this page. If I am annoying some of you by starting in on #maskmandates today, I am truly sorry. But this is bigger than the #masks vs. no masks or lockdown vs. no lockdown questions. This is about WHO GETS TO DECIDE. /1 #COVID19
Will "We the People" govern ourselves? Or do we now live in a world where one person can declare an emergency that gives the same individual authority over every last aspect of our lives for an indefinite period of time? /2 #COVID19
Will "We the People" hold honest debates through our state legislatures, allowing us to hear BOTH sides of any given issue? Or does one person get to choose the expert that we are "allowed" to believe? /3 #COVID19

The psychology and science of #fear of #suffocation and #panic : a thread

It is easy to mock people who believe that #masks will poison them with #CO2 or kill them.

While mask wearing has become politicized, particularly in the US, what is most notable when you listen and watch people talking about masks is their FEAR.

Some people have an experience of suffocation when they wear masks.

This is not unique to wearing medical masks or face coverings— this is true of wearing sleep apnea masks or Hallowe’en masks too!

Found this on FB while looking at Cat Pictures.

Cuts to the❤of the #Covid19 #MaskFetish. #Masks are for specific purposes- and not the one MOST people are using them for!

Just facts no emotion or fear mongering.

For all you mask wearers (especially those of you who think wearing it outside is NOT stupid 🤦🏼‍♀️). I know I’m about to burst your “google doctor degree” bubble, but here goes nothing.

So Masks?
I am OSHA 10&30 certified. I know some of you are too. I don’t really know WHY OSHA hasn’t come forward and stopped the nonsense BUT I want to cover 3 things
• N95 masks and masks with exhale ports
• surgical masks
• filter or cloth masks

A THREAD: One that [they] don’t want you to see. They’d rather you be damaged from what they’re trying to mandate on us. Follow me down the rabbit hole to see what I mean. Reality is not what you think it is. You’re living in the #Matrix. Pass it on. R/T. #TheMoreYouKnow
OSHA considers anything below 19.5% oxygen concentration to be a hazardous atmosphere that can threaten life or health. Anyone who tries and “debunks” this is a brainwashed sheep. Air is only 20% to begin with. You need to see how quick it drops below 20%? Watch this. #MaskHoax
The extremely brainwashed will try and defend the #WearAMask hoax. It is proof of the brainwashing, as their “leaders” have recently weaponized them to “debunk” something as simple as OSHA minimum acceptable levels of oxygen that is safe to breathe.

1/ Realism:

It is now clear that unless half our ruling class reverses itself within a month, the US is on an inevitable march to infection-acquired herd immunity. The end-state of this process, mere months away, will be about 50%-90% infected, 1%-2% dead and 1%-2% disabled.
2/ From an individual perspective, your goal must be for you and loved ones to end up in the 10%-50%, let's say 1 in 4, not infected, by the end of this year.

Figure out now how to fulfill basic survival needs while isolated for the next 6 months as all the infrastructure fails.
3/ There might be actual anarchy in places. Many institutions will disappear. Leaving the country is an option to consider, but you have to do it soon because the outside world is going to prevent migration.

1) #Masks- Proof that they do not work. (thread)
Cold = CoV. N95-masked health-care workers (HCW) were significantly more likely to experience headaches. Mask use in HCW was not demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds.
2) Masks- proof they do not work Influenza, larger than SARSCoV2 None of the studies reviewed showed a benefit from wearing a mask, in either HCW or community members in households (H). See summary Tables 1 and 2 therein.…
3)There were 17 eligible studies. […] None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask ⁄ respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”…

It's a hot topic why I'm not ordering a requirement to wear #masks at this time. To be clear, in alignment with @WHO, @PHAC_GC, & @CPHO_Canada, I absolutely recommend we wear #FaceCoverings when we can't keep 2 m #PhysicalDistancing. Here are 3 reasons why I don't require it: 1/8
1. Enforcement. A public health order requires a court filing and an appearance before a judge every time one wishes to enforce it on a person/business. An order would be basically unenforceable. If we don't enforce, it's effectively just a recommendation (already done that). 2/8
2. Strength of science. While science increasingly supports #facecoverings are likely effective at slowing #COVID19 spread, research is still weak. E.g. @TheLancet systematic review finds much potential benefit, but only “low certainty” that effective.… 3/8

#AbbottResign @GovAbbott @GregAbbott_TX Agreed, Abbott HAS to go! BUT let's be clear, rising #s are only because of rising testing! LOOK AROUND, NO one is dying! The #Mortality rate is all time low. No #Pandemic! If #Masks SO effective, why #Oregon only making white people wear?

Some general rules for universities returning in the fall, and notes on those that are university/building/classroom specific. (more)
1. Require MASKS! Period.

If you do not do so you are negligent when an outbreak occurs.

2. Reduce attendance in classrooms for proper physical distancing.

In a large fraction of classrooms 50% = too high. A more reasonable number = 30% (or lower)

There are different ways of doing this, but the easiest is hybrid lectures and the investment needed to do so.

Let me tell you a bit about #COVID19 in #Maine. First, you may think of Maine as a rural state, and largely it is, but not entirely. We have a good-size city with an international airport in #Portland, and the southern tip (where I live) is considered part of greater #Boston 1/
Seriously, lots of people in town commute home and back daily. So.... not the sticks. Our #COVID19 case count is still considered "falling". Currently, businesses strictly regulate how many customers can be inside at any one time (number varies w/ business size). 2/
There is literally a person with a counter sitting outside every door keeping track. You wait in line outside until it is your turn if they are at capacity. There is colored or reflective tape at six foot intervals to facilitate safely waiting in line. The same is true inside. 3/

What does science find about use of #masks ?

Here is a meta-analysis:

"None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and prevention of influenza transmission."…

However,. . . 1/
However, N95 masks are worn in a surgical setting. Why?

Because bacteria are at least 10 times bigger than viruses, and can often actually get trapped in the tight weave of a N95 mask. This helps prevent hospital-acquired infections such as staph & strep. But, . . . 2/
But viruses are much smaller and easily pass through N95 masks, let alone masks with much larger pores, such as paper surgical masks and cotton masks.

In fact, the pores of cotton masks even enlarge after washing, and are then even less of an obstacle than a #coronavirus, 3/

A thread on #Masks: Just finished watching an excellent session by @tifrarnab, here r takeaway points:

2. Along filtration, wearability, breathability n comfort is imp.
3. 4 most of us cotton cloth masks r enough, N95s r 4 healthcare workers (1/n) #coronavirus
(2/n) 4. Every mask can not be cleaned at home for reuse. For cloth masks washing with detergent is enough but N95 like masks should not be washed with soap or alcohol. Leaving it for 95+ hrs or using dry heat r two possible n easy option. #scicomm #facemasks #coronavirus
(3/n) 5. Masks with valve should b avoided as they don't protect others from user. 6. Some masks claim they can filter 3 micon size particles but for #COVID19 0.3 micron size particles needs 2 b filtered. Need 2 keep this in mind while choosing mask. #facemasks #WearAMask

Again, for those in the back, New York Times, the reason that the American Medical Association and so very many doctors keep recommending that people STOP WEARING MASKS is that they increase risk of viral infections.

Again, this is how . . . 1/…
This is how mask-wearing INCREASES risk of viral infections:
Wear mask --> low oxygen available to lungs (hypoxia).
Hypoxia --> You make Hypoxia Inducible Factor-1 (HIF-1)
HIF-1 --> Reduces function of your CD-4 T-cells.
Now why would you need CD-4 T-cells? . . . 2/
You need CD-4 T-cells to fight viral infections.

And you are worried about COVID19.
But that's a problem, because you just slaughtered your CD-4 T-cells by wearing a mask.

In other words, #masks are a health hazard. 3/
