Tell me again how masks save lives.

The CDC released an interesting study, Community and Close Contact Exposures Associated with COVID-19 Among Symptomatic Adults ≥18 Years in 11 Outpatient Health Care Facilities — United States, July 2020. This part in particular got my attention:

Reported use of cloth face covering or mask 14 days before illness onset
Never: 3.9%
Rarely: 3.9%
Sometimes: 7.2%
Often: 14.4%
Always: 70.6%

So much for masks. I’m in the “rarely” category and if I got ChinCOVID, I never even noticed.

  1. Put me in the never group, just another flu to me which I haven’t had any of them in years. BTW the last time I got the flu was a year I took a flu shot. So I quit doing that too.

    1. Dang… it’s like we’re brothers or something…

      My last flu shot was November of 2012 (I remember since I had just started a new job) and the next month I was so friggin’ sick I was in bed for a week. No shots since, no flu since. Coincidence? Maybe… but I’m not taking any chances.
