    Default More Masks!

    So, LA is requiring masks for indoor use again.

    This is because there is a rise of infections and hospitalizations.

    But, the vast majority, if not all of the people that are being hospitalized, are people that have refused to be vacc'ed.

    So, we're having to wear masks again to protect the unvaccinated? How about we let Darwin take its course.

    there is a new mutation c37
    now mostly confined to peru

    8 to 10% mortality rate with the current vaccines not being as effective as it is for other mutations of the virus

    people that think it's happy days again are going to be shocked around oct

    as far as the unvaccinated
    met a women up in idlewild saturday at a friends bbq
    she was in charge of the intensive care unit in hemet
    they have 11 beds that are all full
    all covid victims

    not 1 vaccinated

    The more of the virus there is around, the more it will mutate. Unfortunately, some of those mutations will be worse than the original, or the vaccines will be less effective against them.

    I think Riverside County where I live had the first mask mandate in the nation, and we are still (mostly) wearing masks here in public. I don't like having to do it, but I will until it is safe to stop.

    So far, I've gathered that:

    1. The new mutations are more contagious.
    2. Having the vaccine essentially prevents hospitalization and death if you do happen to get infected by any strain or mutation.
    3. The vast majority of deaths and hospitalizations that are happening are individuals who are not vaccinated.

    so...

    4. If I do catch any strain, I'll be fine. All my friends and family are vaccinated, so if i do infect them, THEY'D be fine as well. But you're telling me I have to wear a mask so I don't go infecting some moron without a vaccine?

    Again, how about we ditch masks all together and let Darwin sort it out?

    Maybe I need eTucker to explain things to me.

    Yes, basically it's to protect the 1/3 of the population or so that have not been vaccinated. The vaccinations are not for children, so that's another unvaccinated population, although they are less vulnerable to Covid-19 in general. Still, some children and teens have died from it.

    not when it comes to c37
    that's why they are developing a new vaccine that address's the new mutation's

    not a booster
    with delta most vaccinated people will at worst be mildly ill

    with c37 they can expect hospitalization

    My GF brother just got Covid 19! (he wasn't vaccinated) So it a good time for me to give my explanation of why we all should still wear masks! It's for the children who are less then 12 years old. Even though they probably won't get sick and die. It is a way to protect them, because that's a group their not sure if vaccinating them is the correct thing to do now!

    Yes, I already said that about the children, plus there are others as well who cannot be vaccinated.
