I do play by the rules, distancing, masks but I'm curious about one thing. Going into town, do weekly chores, I see old used masks blowing around Walmart parking lot. I would think given the "facts" as we are told, why are there no proper disposal units like toxic waste units?

The actual rate of getting it from objects as opposed to aerosolized transmission is negligible. Hand sanitizer is still recommended after handling foreign objects but actually getting it from simply touching things is remarkably low. Keep your face covered: mouth, nose, and eyes. The distancing only works in short spans of time, the longer you are in a room with someone the likelihood of contracting any infection disease approaches one. People litter because they're stupid, and being personally responsible for your actions is virtually impossible for some. Using a grabber or gloves and a regular trash bag is fine to dispose of the masks. Simply touching a contaminated object doesn't mean you'll get it, you then need to touch an opening on yourself - again, your eyes, nose, or mouth. It's a matter of making sure you're not going to breathe contaminated air or getting droplets from someone's breath on your face.

Just don't be a fucking idiot and don't take this shit lightly. A friend of mine has seen multiple corona patients, upwards of a few dozen now, and hasn't contracted it yet because the safety procedures in the hospital are thorough. If you have a proper P100 or N100 mask that's the best way to do things, an N95 only works if you're doing something quickly and far enough away from potential infected. The 95 represents the percent of foreign material being kept out of the mask. A 95 means it only keeps out 95% of things. This shit shouldn't be as political as it is, it's simple safety protocols to help others, and yourself, from not getting sick or infecting others. People are too short sighted and selfish to want to act in the interest of others.

Agree, I just can't fathom how irresponsible are some with their own garbage...

Guys I can't taste anything.


Edit: Ok a little context, COVID ran through the whole staff of my bar like wildfire and I have closed doors for 14 days, its a disaster. Please wear mask.

You've hear about the mink-variant spreading?

I think it's why the 2nd wave is so fast spreading.


Hopefully less aggressive.


Reminds me of an experiment with a pathogen I dont remember that was made super deadly using only lab-rats or minks, not sure which, anyways it showed that by low tech means you could create a super deadly bioweapon.

I mean, it came out of Wuhan which has China's CDC equivalent there and they're known to tamper with shit. It's not a long stretch to think this was engineered and got loose.

I was in lockdown (quarantine) after being exposed to a coworker but I never showed any symptoms or tested positive. I was in the same boat as you with being in contact with everyone I care about and was worried also but fortunately never came down with anything.

There is no rhyme or reason for the severity of it. Locally I know of 90-year-olds getting through it and some relatively younger people having a hard time with it. I don't know if it would have helped if I would have gotten it but I took zinc and vitamins for a couple of weeks after being exposed to hopefully help.

Have you recovered already? I hope you do. I've heard that some had long-term symptoms after recovering, are you feeling this too?

Abosutely. It laid me and my roomate out like a bad flu for about ten days, which is pretty long mind, but no dangerous symptoms. I had no sense of taste or smell up until a few weeks ago.

A friend who I hike and camp with often had to be hospitalized because of how little oxygen she was getting. And this woman is 26 and very fit and she is still recovering almost three weeks later. Her wife has literally had to tend her bedside after being released from medical care.
