You don't post on social media because you would get lambasted for what you think "flattening the curve" is. :)

I don't think anyone on TI agrees with your viewpoint that it only delays deaths and that it would be the same number regardless. If so, it's only to spite me, but they know the real science... or why would every medical-related person in the world recommend it?

Did you find that article that says flattening the curve just delays the number of deaths?

This would be like me saying that lockdowns don't hurt the economy... it just pauses it. :)

Why are masks a "liberal" or "leftist" thing?

Aren't they just a safety/health protocol?

As IUSD considers a hybrid model, will they require all staff and students to wear NON-valved masks (ie. masks WITHOUT exhalation valves).

"As you inhale, the incoming air is filtered. As you exhale, the outgoing mixture of carbon dioxide, oxygen, water vapor and, yes, possibly COVID-19 viral particles releases unfiltered. The San Francisco Department of Public Health actually tweeted a warning that these masks “may actually propel your germs further."

More and more states are finally mandating masks.  It took so long to get here. How much money and lives would have been saved if state governments had mandated masks in MAR?  Or if Trump had mandated masks by executive order in MAR?

The states not mandating masks are stupid because we are in the middle of a pandemic.  Why does trump hate america?

The San Francisco Bay Area has become the first region in the US to say that masks with valves are not acceptable face protection amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Does anyone know where one can buy some legitimate kn95 (or even kn94) masks? There's a ton of different listings on Amazon, but almost all of them have concerns in the reviews about counterfeit distribution & quality issues?

Check out slickdeals. Decent amount of objective reviews regarding masks.
For example super thin masks do not buy, ordered this before this is a good deal.
I basically go there for the deals.

Check out this website showing red states now have more covid infections.
Is it because they didn't take this pandemic seriously?

MASKS ARE WORTHLESS
But Virtue Posturers, primarily Leftists who adore Joe Biden, wear them and swear by them.

Massive Danish study on surgical masks found no statistically significant benefit against Covid-19

November 18, 2020

 Most Western elites are telegraphing the message that we will be forced to cover our humanity with cheap Chinese face burkas indefinitely. They are mandating that even two-year-olds must wear masks. The long-term effects on the lungs, emotional and behavioral problems, and development of infants and toddlers is enormous. For such an unconstitutional invasion of personal liberty, they are responsible to show us some amazing degree of effectiveness of this cultish ritual. In fact, the data show the opposite.


 

The much-vaunted Danish mask study was finally published today in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine. Now we know why three medical journals were so averse to publishing its findings. The study completely obliterates the cultish devotion to masks. The results of this massive real-life controlled experiment show that the group that wore surgical masks in April experienced a 0.38% lower infection rate than the control group that did not wear masks. That is about one-third of one percent, which is so low that it could just be statistically random variances that demonstrate no definitive efficacy even to that infinitesimal level.

 

"The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use," concluded the authors. "The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection."

 

There was a total of roughly 3,000 people in each group of the study, which would make this the largest study ever conducted on the efficacy of mask-wearing. In October, Berlingske, Denmark's oldest operating daily newspaper, reported that three major journals – JAMA, New England Journal of Medicine, and Lancet – refused to publish the study.

"MASSIVE study" .... "each group contained 3000 people"

OK.

A total of 3030 participants were randomly assigned to the recommendation to wear masks, and 2994 were assigned to control; 4862 completed the study. Infection with SARS-CoV-2 occurred in 42 participants recommended masks (1.8%) and 53 control participants (2.1%). The between-group difference was −0.3 percentage point (95% CI, −1.2 to 0.4 percentage point; P = 0.38) (odds ratio, 0.82 [CI, 0.54 to 1.23]; P = 0.33). Multiple imputation accounting for loss to follow-up yielded similar results. Although the difference observed was not statistically significant, the 95% CIs are compatible with a 46% reduction to a 23% increase in infection.

Lol.
