Yeah, also waiting for peer reviewed studies that might take a few months or years while hanging on the "no conclusive evidence" of human-to-human transmission.

The messaging for masks is unchanged around using to protect yourself.

An untrained person Wearing a mask will not decrease his / her chances of getting Covid. I don’t believe I have seen evidence refuting this contention.

This has not changed.

What has changed is that the % of spread by a symptomatic people was much higher than originally thought. So a policy of everyone wearing masks greatly reduces the spread of disease from asymptomatic carriers.

What was the motivation for lying? The common answer is they wanted to avoid hoarding but they could just nationalize the supply and prohibit retailers from selling to the public if that was the goal. So what is the motivation to lie.

Governments learned as the disease was knowledge was developing. I do think Canada is significantly behind in terms of mask policy now.

It would also reduce the spread of symptomatic people. They knew symptomatic cases would spread the virus. It would have helped regardless of how much asymptomatic spread that there was.

It wasn’t a conspiracy, but it was poorly thought out advice and policy.

Yup and the draw string is super creased, so it’s never been through a wash

Like a civilian who dresses up a military uniform on Remembrance Day, Front line workers are angry protestors would go so low as to dress up as them and claim they’re a nurse

Why?

I'm sure there are a lot of health professionals who think whatever measures their state or province has implemented are too restrictive.

Why is that a problem?

Because it's ####ing fake, and it misrepresents the views of frontline healthcare workers who would have to deal with the consequences of opening too soon before things can be controlled. Their workload and mental strain is already at a breaking point in most places. So yeah, it probably pisses them off to see someone pushing this fake agenda in their name.

Come on man.

p.s. in case you think I'm making this up, many of my neighbors are nurses or physicians dealing with this and they are giving me a first-hand account of how hard this has been on them.

Y’all consider this person is actually a nurse, but had the foresight to not have her name, position, and employer dragged into some online pissing match?

Plus, a legit nurse wouldn't be standing next to a tow away zone.
