When a person writes the words, "WE KNOW," and then tries to float the word, "MAYBE," a few months down the road, I think I will go with the first utterance.
So you don't think that the person might have learned things during those few months that may have caused that person to update their opinion?  Or, maybe that the situation is more nuanced than you care to admit.
Of course.

If they learn something new and it has scientific evidence, it should be spelled out, especially for people like you.

In this case, it hasn't been spelled out and hence your confusion.

It is obvious only the feelings have change, which is what you are all about anyway.
As if health care workers come from the planet Vulcan.

Health care workers are recruited from the general public...
*sigh*  Healthcare workers work in a much higher risk environment than the general public, therefore their guidance is different than the general public.
That is correct.

And when they are in the high-risk environment, wear the appropriate PPE, including a mask which is recommended by the WHO.

When in community settings, no mask necessary, just like the general public.

"We know (emphasis mine) that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. (emphasis mine) In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety (emphasis mine) over the pandemic.

From that same source:
Quote
There may be additional benefits to broad masking policies that extend beyond their technical contribution to reducing pathogen transmission. Masks are visible reminders of an otherwise invisible yet widely prevalent pathogen and may remind people of the importance of social distancing and other infection-control measures.
The operative word being "maybe."

Sounds like the science you want to rely on, right?

When a person writes the words, "WE KNOW," and then tries to float the word, "MAYBE," a few months down the road, I think I will go with the first utterance.
I did not lie.

You cannot read a table.

Page 5 Lists the WHO, then states Health Worker or Care Giver AND Health Worker

And yet you completely ignore Table 2 on page 7 of that document that lays out their guidance for the general public.
As if health care workers come from the planet Vulcan.

Health care workers are recruited from the general public...

The WHO clearly states that health care workers do not require a mask when in community settings:

"Page 5 Table 1. Type of mask for use by health workers depending on transmission scenario, setting and activity* - "Health worker   Community   Community outreach programs   No mask needed"
https://www.who.int/publications/i/item/advice-on-the-use-of-masks-in-the-community-during-home-care-and-in-healthcare-settings-in-the-context-of-the-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)-outbreak

Wow, you just straight up lied here. Why?

From Page 5 Table 1 you referenced where does it say, "No mask needed"?

It says in the one you referenced:

- Health worker >
- Community >
- Community outreach programs >
- Consider using a medical mask

Nowhere does it say: "No mask needed". Shameful.
I did not lie.

You cannot read a table.

Page 5 Lists the WHO, then states Health Worker or Care Giver AND Health Worker

Then it states Setting; "Known or suspected community transmission" then below it states "Sporadic transmission or clusters of Covid-19 Cases"

Then it States Activity

Then it provides What type of mask

For the first Health Worker or Care Giver it clearly states "Medical mask use according to standard and transmission-based precautions (risk assessment)"

For the Health Worker it states: No mask needed

It also states: CONSIDER

You lied (as usual) and I don't expect you to stop, so that's okay.

I, on the other hand will continue to post FACTUAL and CLEAR information, regardless of your vain attempts.

Actually, the WHO provides the following:

"Whether or not masks are used, compliance with hand hygiene, physical distancing and other infection prevention and control (IPC) measures are critical to prevent human-to-human transmission of COVID-19."

Please note, masks are useless, except in environments and operations for which they are beneficial.

Just as Fauci and the Surgeon General stated from the get-go.

*sigh*
From your WHO source:
However, taking into account the available studies evaluating pre- and asymptomatic transmission, a growing compendium of observational evidence on the use of masks by the general public in several countries, individual values and preferences, as well as the difficulty of physical distancing in many contexts, WHO has updated its guidance to advise that to prevent COVID-19 transmission effectively in areas of community transmission, governments should encourage the general public to wear masks in specific situations and settings as part of a comprehensive approach to suppress SARS-CoV-2 transmission (Table 2).
Read the table and then try to claim that is day-to-day and all environments.

Cloth masks are useless.

37
Please note, masks are useless, except in environments and operations for which they are beneficial.

So, to be clear:  masks are useless apart from when they aren't?
That is the evidence.

Medical staff are advised to NOT WORK when the proper PPE is not available, because cloth masks are inadequate replacements.

Each environment has specific requirements.

38
The real world is not a controlled environment, so I wouldn't expect controlled environment tests to mean too much in the real world.
Correct. And that is why your offered source on masks is useless from the get go.
Incorrect.  My source was gathering data from the real world, not just controlled lab experiments.
Real world?

Where did they get their numbers from?

The CDC?

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/testing/serology-overview.html

"A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold."
Also:
The bottom line is that any mask that covers the nose and mouth will be of benefit.

“The concept is risk reduction rather than absolute prevention,” said Chin-Hong. “You don’t throw up your hands if you think a mask is not 100 percent effective. That’s silly. Nobody’s taking a cholesterol medicine because they’re going to prevent a heart attack 100 percent of the time, but you’re reducing your risk substantially.”

Cloth masks do not prevent the spread of Covid-19.
*ahem*
There is a significant decline in daily COVID-19 growth rate after mandating facial covers in public, with the effect increasing over time after signing the order. Specifically, the daily case rate declines by 0.9, 1.1, 1.4, 1.7, and 2.0 percentage-points within 1–5, 6–10, 11–15, and 16–20, and 21+ days after signing, respectively. All of these declines are statistically significant (p<0.05, or less). In contrast, the pre-trends in COVID-19 case growth rates are small and statistically insignificant.

We also project the number of averted COVID-19 cases with the mandates for face mask use in public by comparing actual cumulative daily cases to daily cases predicted by the model if none of the states had enacted the public face cover mandate at the time they did (see details in appendix B).19 The main model estimates suggest that as many as 230,000–450,000 cases may have been averted due to these mandates by May 22. Estimates of averted cases should be viewed cautiously and only as general approximations.
"Estimates" = reality?

In your diaper, perhaps?

Get real, penguin.

First Fact - the antibody testing mentioned in the article that you provide is coming up positive for Covid-19, even if if it isn't actually Covid - 19, according to the CDC.

B Fact - an estimate = a guess.

Stop trolling you fucking retard.
The results of the studies are very clear!

Cloth masks do not prevent the spread of Covid-19!
Cloth masks are not intended to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Cloth masks are intended to slow the spread of Covid-19.

Why is that difference so hard for you to comprehend?
They don't slow the spread.

There is no evidence to indicate they slow the spread.
I don't know about that.  Masking seems to have helped slow the spread in states like New York.
So, the state with the highest number of cases and deaths, according to reports, is the state you want to offer as evidence that masks help slow the the spread...

That is very funny.
Why do you think that covid is spreading like wildfire in most of the rest of the country?  Not enough hand washing?
I think it is "spreading," because the tests are faulty do not necessarily actually indicate Covid - 19.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/testing/serology-overview.html

"A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold."

So, all those positive tests are probably something like a common cold.

42
Stop trolling you fucking retard.

Cloth masks do not prevent the spread of Covid-19!
The paper does not state that at all.
Stop trolling you fucking retard.
I am not trolling and you are using abusive language outside of AR/CN.

Please stop it.

Cloth masks do not prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Sorry you are so disappointed.

But not surprised in the least.

Facts have always been your kryptonite.

Your paper literally says surgical masks are working.
Stop trolling you fucking retard.
Surgical masks are worn by surgeons when in the operating room.

Unless you are claiming that surgical masks are available for the general public.

Have a gfy day!

"The rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask arm, with the rate of ILI statistically significantly higher in the cloth mask arm (relative risk (RR)=13.00, 95% CI 1.69 to 100.07) compared with the medical mask arm. Cloth masks also had significantly higher rates of ILI compared with the control arm. An analysis by mask use showed ILI (RR=6.64, 95% CI 1.45 to 28.65) and laboratory-confirmed virus (RR=1.72, 95% CI 1.01 to 2.94) were significantly higher in the cloth masks group compared with the medical masks group. Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%."

"
Basically, the WHO boils down to this: Using a mask doesn't help one bit.

"Whether or not masks are used, compliance with hand hygiene, physical distancing and other infection prevention and control (IPC) measures are critical to prevent human-to-human transmission of COVID-19."

Here is part of the reason why the CDC is being bypassed.

None of the numbers being reported are real:
If the numbers being reported to the CDC aren't real, why would those very same numbers reported to HHS be any more reliable? ???
None of the numbers reported by the CDC can be trusted according to the article.

Did you read the article?

49
How high is their positive outcome rates (if they do 100 tests, how many turn out positive)?
Given the information found in the article I presented, what difference would that make?

Further, when the labs are found to be botching the tests, what difference would that make?

50
Here is part of the reason why the CDC is being bypassed.

None of the numbers being reported are real:

"The U.S. tally of coronavirus cases and deaths might jump, because federal health officials will now count illnesses that are not confirmed by lab testing."

Anyone who trusts the reported numbers is a complete and utter fool.
Big if true.

Also proves how incredibly stupid muricans are.
Of  course it is true.

Americans are not that stupid.

A majority of Americans do not believe government officials.

There is a silent majority.

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

Considering the WHO doesn't know whether to shit or go blind, I would take this as clear evidence they have no clue about what they are talking about.

Would you please make up your mind?
My mind is made up.

The WHO does not recommend the use of masks.
You also said that the WHO doesn't know what they're talking about, so why would you listen to their advice about washing your hands, etc.?
Because the WHO is only repeating the things my ancestors taught me, which was maintaining sound hygiene.

Unlike you.

You do not even know when to change your diaper, according to your profile pic.

Stop turning every thread to shit. Shifter, stop enabling him.

You mean stop any efforts to put a plug on his misinformation, baseless conspiracy theories and BS?

Yeah, rightio then  ::)
Yes, just ignore him. He then usually shuts the fuck up and people can have a normal discussion.
Shifter or lackey?  Neither ever seem to shut the fuck up.

I'd report your post for being low content and trolling but that does no good. So I'll put it publically so the thread further gets degraded with noise so that something does actually get done about it

Keep in mind which forum you're in.

Also why am I targeted and attacked for calling lackey out on his stupid BS? Everyone else gets to respond with similar sensible posts and get a free pass?
You are not being targeted for supposedly attacking me for posting what you like to call BS.

You are simply joining in the chorus in an attempt to bury the WHO recommendation to the public, which happens to not include the wearing of masks.

Wearing masks is not going to help anyone, except doctors in a surgical setting.

55
Stop turning every thread to shit. Shifter, stop enabling him.
If by pointing out the source that DNS provided has the following header:

Once again, for clarity, here is the WHO recommendations on how to avoid infection:

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

1/ Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

somehow = shit in your estimation, I think it wise for you to look again.

56
I do not listen to known liars, especially those purporting to offer sound medical guidance.

Weren't you the one asserting that there would be no more than 60K deaths? How's the tally working out for you guys? I suppose all the deaths are from totally unrelated causes? LOL
Keep believing the reported death totals.

As opposed to a paranoid Trump and his delusional cult followers? Dont mind if I do! 8)
CDC numbers are not to be trusted.

Even doctors admit this.
Keep ignoring the fact hospitals receive 11k for reported infections and 30k for reported deaths in the US.

Yeah, care costs money.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/factcheck/2020/04/24/fact-check-medicare-hospitals-paid-more-covid-19-patients-coronavirus/3000638001/

https://www.factcheck.org/2020/04/hospital-payments-and-the-covid-19-death-count/

Too bad for you that no evidence has been found of fraud

Also where do you get your info that if they die they get a $30K bonus? All I see is they get more if they are on a ventilator. I doubt the hospital sticks people on ventilators for no reason at all lol. You really are whacko ::)
When you get money for reported cases and deaths, then you are going to fudge the numbers.

Period.
Trust this money would not in any way give rise to false diagnosis or misattributed deaths.

Yeah, I'd trust a medical professional sooner than I'd trust some troll / alt on the internet thanks. I'm pretty sure in a developed country you cant just 'make up' a cause of death and get away with it either. Especially on the scale you are talking about
Yeah, you can because up to this point, death was not something celebrated by morons like you every time the news came out.

Suddenly, it is cause for celebration because of people like you.
If I were in America, I'd be treating everyone like they were lepers!
Yes and most people here in the US would naturally be treating you the same way and for good reason.
Low effort trolling as usual
If by trolling, you mean stating truthful responses to your posts, then you would be correct.

57
He didn't lie.
Yeah he did.

Fauci stated masks were not necessary.

No reason offered.

Then he stated they were.

No reason offered.

When asked why he first stated they were not, he stated there was a "paucity," in PPE and didn't want medical staff to run out.

In other words, a lie.

By omission.
Lying is telling people to drink bleach or disinfectants as a way to kill the virus.
Good thing no one ever told such a lie, except those stating someone actually has stated this.
Lying is telling the world hydroxychloroquine is some game changer and is proven effective before any reliable trial or data is released.

LOL

Quote
Citing its ongoing scientific review, the agency said in a statement: “FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA. Additionally, in light of ongoing serious cardiac adverse events and other serious side effects, the known and potential benefits of CQ and HCQ no longer outweigh the known and potential risks for the authorized use.

Your President is a compulsive liar. I would bet he doesn't even take the drug despite saying that he does. He wants everyone dosed up on the drug?
Good thing the leader of Brazil knows different.

Good thing all those people in the latest supposed study also know different.

Good thing only liars like you miraculously believe a new study would somehow be required for a drug whose purpose is to treat diseases affecting the respiratory system, in order to make breathing easier and overall recovery faster are few and far between.

Here's evidence (70 articels) that masks work, in case you know some dimwit that still believes masks are useless:
https://threader.app/thread/1279144399897866248
Yeah, your own source quotes the WHO, which essentially contradicts the list of studies:
"Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands."

In other words, do not wear a face covering.

Considering the WHO doesn't know whether to shit or go blind, I would take this as clear evidence they have no clue about what they are talking about.
That's why I also included a link to the CDC about masks.
We usually just ignore lackey.
Of course the ignorant are well aware of how to ignore the truth.

The link you posted was bogus and actually included the statement I quoted from the WHO.

In other words, do not us face coverings.

Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.

You know, like a regular person...instead of an idiot.

You are spreading misinformation and diseases. 

You're the reason we are in this mess, people like you who ignore doctors and are completely ignorant on how diseases work. You literally make me sick.

It just boggles the mind, how using masks to stop the spread of disease has become an issue because Trump didn't like how he looked in a mask and wouldn't wear one, and his followers just blindly suddenly think masks eat your brain and spread Satan or something.  You guys are complete morons.
I know you like to concern yourself with mythological crapola.

Covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough with a tissue is just fine according to the WHO.

Then, you should dispose of the tissue.

You shouldn't keep your mouth and nose covered with a mask.

That is all.

You have zero ability to comprehend logic, or English apparently.

How you get "don't wear a mask" from "throw away your used tissue" is a mystery.  I can't decide if you're just deliberately trolling, or really are that stupid.

Promoting a flat Earth doesn't hurt anyone.  Promoting your fear of masks stealing your oxygen and causing brain damage is hurting people.  Or would if anyone would relive you.  Still worth calling you on your crap just in case.
I get it from this:

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

1/ Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

Kindly point out to the rest of the members how you determine the word MASK is found anywhere in recommendations 1 through 3.

For where I live, a mask is not recommended. I guess the risk is so infinitesimally low at this point it is simply a waste of PPE

However if the virus became out of control here and we were detecting hundreds or thousands of cases a day, the advice would change and a mask would be preferred

It's astounding how anybody can lack simple logic the way you do. I guess that's why you call yourself totallakey.
Simple logic first demands an ability to read.

I read the WHO recommendations and will follow them to the letter.

The WHO recommendations do not state: "Follow these recommendations UNLESS..."

Someone with your general predilection to read shit where it doesn't exist would do such a thing.

Smart people, like me, know to avoid such foolishness.

59
Just ignore lackey, he's only trying to derail this thread. He knows himself he's only talking crap. He's a well known troll of this site.
You know you want people to ignore me when I point out this tidbit you posted here:
Masks are proven to work. Here's a list of evidence:
https://threader.app/thread/1279144399897866248
Except, everyone can clearly read what the WHO clearly states in the header to the thread:

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

1/ Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

Even the WHO states that masks are not necessary.

Yes, in the absence of things like a mask which are proven to reduce how far your cough can go (from up to ~12ft to ~2 inches)

Many countries dont have the equipment

In the early days, these masks were in short supply because China got its citizens to buy them up and ship them off to China

For some people, masks are impractical

Coughing into your elbow, washing hands and disposing of tissues is still good advice. Not everyone has access to a mask. Obviously masks are preferential to reducing transmission both from the standpoint if you are an infected person (your breath and when you talk or even little coughs) dont extend outward to the wider population. And if you are a healthy person as you dont breathe in air from moron repugnicans who refuse to wear a mask!

If there is one good thing about the virus its that it is slowly increasing the average IQ of America by wiping out all the drongos that were too stubborn or proud to listen to a professional. Moving forward by the end of all this maybe there is hope for America yet
IF masks were actually necessary, then Fauci would have stated they were from the get go, but he didn't.

He lied.

The WHO states the only things necessary are the following:

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

1/ Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

There you have it.

No mention of a mask.

Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.

You know, like a regular person...instead of an idiot.

You are spreading misinformation and diseases. 

You're the reason we are in this mess, people like you who ignore doctors and are completely ignorant on how diseases work. You literally make me sick.

It just boggles the mind, how using masks to stop the spread of disease has become an issue because Trump didn't like how he looked in a mask and wouldn't wear one, and his followers just blindly suddenly think masks eat your brain and spread Satan or something.  You guys are complete morons.
I know you like to concern yourself with mythological crapola.

Covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough with a tissue is just fine according to the WHO.

Then, you should dispose of the tissue.

You shouldn't keep your mouth and nose covered with a mask.

That is all.

You have zero ability to comprehend logic, or English apparently.

How you get "don't wear a mask" from "throw away your used tissue" is a mystery.  I can't decide if you're just deliberately trolling, or really are that stupid.

Promoting a flat Earth doesn't hurt anyone.  Promoting your fear of masks stealing your oxygen and causing brain damage is hurting people.  Or would if anyone would relive you.  Still worth calling you on your crap just in case.
I get it from this:

Follow the World Health Organization's instructions to reduce your risk of infection:

1/ Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.

2/ When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue - throw issue away immediately and wash hands.

3/ Avoid close contact with anyone that has fever and cough.

Kindly point out to the rest of the members how you determine the word MASK is found anywhere in recommendations 1 through 3.

As far as the rest of it goes, you are just sniveling because you have a weak personality, ill suited for the internet, failing in the most basic human functions, preferring to take frequent dumps anywhere but the loo.
