Masks During the 1919 Pandemic

Quote
As Americans were celebrating victory in World War I in the fall of 1918, the masks on returning troops showed that the U.S. was losing another war against the so-called Spanish Flu.

Masks were controversial back then "for many of the same reasons they are today," said Nancy Tomes, a history professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

I'm sorry that's happening. It is not good. Don't know what else to say, or what to do at all.

I live in a rural county an hour outside of Dallas.  We've had about 200 new cases and a half dozen or so new deaths in the last two weeks, one of them a woman who attended my church.

As of today Germany is starting a new 2 week lockdown. We used to be one of the safest places to be during the pandemic. How quicky things change.

My nephew's father tested positive last week. My nephew and his wife will get tested today. They are already in quarantaine. I haven't had contact with my nephew since July though.
My sisters husband was showing "symptons" and was tested last week wednesday. His results will be in today. Haven't had contact with my sister and her husband since early October.

I just hope they didn't catch the virus.

There were rumors last week that the SA government is considering taking us back to Level Three (of five) lockdown rules: Level five is total shutdown of everything and we were on level four for almost three months.

I just had a FB friend post: "Only two days of 'Rona left!"

(Referencing his view that the coverage of the virus is an orchestrated attempt to get rid of Trump and the media will quit reporting it after the election.)

I'm REALLY trying not to get into political fights on social media, but the idea that anyone could be that stupid infuriates me!

My nephew and his wife tested positive. So far only mild symptoms. Other than that they are doing fine. My brotherr in law's test didn't come through yet but he said he is feeling better. My sister was feeling sick over the weekend and was short of breath yesterday. She's feeling ok today. Never thought the virus would hit so close to home.

Many more of us will get it before a vaccine is available.   

DO NOT let up with precautions, do not let your fatigue and malaise dealing with all of this make you careless.   (I wear a mask at work all day and I see patients with covid, and everything else that Pacific Northwesterners get.)

I completely understand the fatigue because I feel it too. 

Or, to put it cooler:

I know we're all in strung out shape but stay frosty and alert. We can't afford to let one of those bastards in here!

man this p**ses me off though the election is not over as of this typing let's face it we've got this criminal clown for another 4 years because Americans are idiots and i'm from there so i can say that. this country is dead and just should close it's doors cause he's killed it. we had a chance of having a leader but we lost it because though Biden was a terrible choice to being with let's face it they both were. i did vote but apparently it did not a damn of a difference.

how anyone could want someone who literally cares about weather no one lives or dies just as long as it's not him i don't get it.  i really don't i will never understand why anyone would want to vote for him at all i wouldn't even let him walk my dog across the street that's how little i trust him-

i'm glad to hear that too, when i went to vote yesterday though there was a married couple in their car and one of them had a mask on & they said they had Covid we had masks on but did not get close to them at all but ya know what? they stayed in their car & someone came out to help them so the fact that they didn't go in and stayed in their car i give them major props for.

The Cheetoh is going to lose, Pennywise.  Joe will have to deal with Moscow Mitch and his cronies in the senate, but at least America will have a president not drunk and taking benzos and stimulants and tweeting ten times at 2:30 AM.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
