Who are the spreaders? Properly wear a mask to save lives.



Some angry people had been giving hospital security guards and orderlies a hard time about cleansing hands, temperature checks, and a free mask that came with the order, “wear-it”, in Spanish. The guard grabbed a hospital phone and called for some help.

“OK, we [doctors and nurses] are ready to go home if you can’t bother to wear a [d*mn] MASK,” NP Michele Francis said, bent over, speaking loudly in a hospital waiting room to a large group of quarreling families which had either brought in a patient or were inquiring about visitation.

As the crowd calmed while listening to her confident voice, she said, “I assure you with one hundred percent certainty that statistically some of the people in this room are spreaders, and they do not know this yet.” Jaws dropped.

This was the scene hours ago in a small Venezuelan hospital where global humanitarians and a local faith-based group run a hospital and three clinics in a large region of the Amazon Basin.

“Hopefully all the locals read your article, Melissa,” added the frustrated nurse practitioner.

“The conflict had risen to the point where the security people had gone to get reinforcements and to find a hospital Administrator, me,” she said later to FPMag on WhatsApp.

Hence the message of this article, brought to you in fact by thousands of medical workers, is again, “Wear a Mask”.

Note: India's reported death sum and cured data are widely seen among epidemiologists and biostatisticians as unreliable. For example, 2,701,298 is CSPAC estimated sum of deaths while India reports 491,154, creating the largest discepency in the world. India might only report hospital tested cases. Sources among hundreds of nurses and other medical practitioners provide a picture that in summary concludes most cases never present in a hospital especially in northern provinces where health care is less available and utilization is low anyway because of poverty, hence most people die at home in India. This theory could explain discrepancies between reported data and algorithmic estimates.

Wear a Mask,” says the world health organization in the context of increasingly strict guidelines.

Wear an N95 medical mask or even an N99 if you have one but if unavailable, wear a mask made of three pieces of different weave cloth fabric.

According to the World Health Organization, “Masks should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save lives; the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19. You should also maintain a minimum physical distance of at least 1 metre from others, frequently clean your hands and avoid touching your face and mask.”

The RINJ Foundation recommends that each person wear an N95 mask and stay at least TWO METERS from other persons. Wash your hands before and after touching anything outside your safe and hygienic home base. Do not touch your face or your mask with your hands without hand hygiene before and after.

 

 


The COVID-19 deaths are extremely high in countries where wearing a mask has become politicized and the public distancing has failed as has mask wearing. The worst three nations are America, India and Brazil in that order.

And here is why and how to wear an N95 Mask

Strapping a piece of cloth underneath one’s nose is a slithery approach to pretending to wear a mask. In many countries that is a crime of criminal negligence with intent to cause others harm. In one country, police are ordered to shoot such persons. They have done so. That’s not a good thing but it does indicate how important it is to stop the spread. A person can be a spreader without knowing.

Wear an N95 medical mask or if you do not have one, wear a mask made of three pieces of different weave cloth fabric. Only an NIOSH N95 respirator mask, properly worn, will protect users from pathogens and airborne toxins.


Additional reading on Masks


Governments have done a terrible job of protecting people from pollution and climate change. This year has shown evidence things are worse than we thought. The current pandemic is caused directly by climate change.

We see the forest fires; the bizarre storms; the droughts; the floods; and all at the same time. The consequence is hundreds of dying species which shed their viruses to humans. (That’s the quick explanation.)

Governments have not been telling their publics the truth because they are the problem.  To lie in a pandemic is a mortal sin.

Wear a proper mask and wear it correctly.

Do not touch any part of the mask, ever, only the straps. You can reuse a quality-made N95 mask. Some nurses alternate two masks by putting one in the sun for a day while wearing the other, then rotating. Watch the video below. Alcohol spray is also effective if used immediately after removal and before safe overnight storage. In the sunlight (direct or indirect) is the best.

 Take the quick course. Above video demonstrates how to don and doff your N95 respirator mask, especially when you have been in high risk areas.
