I keep thinking about articles discussing importance of being both #VaxxedAndMasked. Some comments via 🧵. (1/x)

Data shows:
✔️ Vax safe & wildly effective
✔️ No vax 100% (think raincoat or sunscreen)
✔️ Masks very effective
✔️ Both help indiv & public health
✔️ Delta is a beast
2/ Through hard work we know:
✔️ COVID could spread by several routes
✔️ Airborne aerosols likely to be a critically important piece of that spread
✔️ We can reduce w/ masks, distancing, reducing #SharedAir
✔️ Vax reduces number & severity of infections…
3/ So if the only factor (indiv or collectively) is to provide the best protection, the answer is clearly to #VaxUp ASAP & to still #MaskUp in crowds or indoors w/ anyone who is unvaxxed. Delta is dangerous & many not yet protected.

It's widely accepted that #MeaslesIsAirborne

I summarized the evidence for airborne spread of Measles vs. COVID-19 in a table

The results were quite shocking to me ...

How is it that we are still discussing whether or not #COVIDisAirborne??

The disease on the left is managed with airborne precautions, including respiratory protection (N95/respirator) and ventilation optimization

In Canada, the disease on the right is still managed with droplet and contact precautions (gowns, gaping surgical masks with substandard filtration efficiencies, gloves, face shields and plenty of hygiene theatre)

1/9 @CDCgov states that the principal mode of infection for #COVID19 is via exposure to respiratory droplets (big or small - aerosolized).
One of the simplest ways of minimize this exposure is by minimizing #SharedAir with other people 🧵
2/9 How does one do that? Some simple tips:
* Masks - masks help control things exhaled and inhaled. Primarily recommended for their ability to control things at "source", i.e., the infected person.
* Distance - Farther you are, less likely are your chances of exposure to high concentrations of respiratory droplets of other people
