The Monday Peeve #45

Today’s prompt: topical

Early a.m. and awake I accessed my cell phone in search of info related to an 

incident brought to my attention earlier during a conversation.

As I scrolled the newsfeed I came across two articles posted by a new

virtual friend – a member of a group I joined in recent months. 

One article copied and shared from stated source claiming to be a member of

OSHA 10 & 30 certified was quite lengthy thus decision made to scribble a few notes.

I was shocked to read all the negative facts pertaining to usefulness of three

different types of masks.

Stated was how N95 masks designed for contaminated environments basically

are one way – exhale without filtration. If a person wearing one has Covid-19

his breath is now distributed into surroundings. 

Following was info pertaining to surgical masks designed and approved for

STERILE environments.  The amount of particles and contaminants in the

outside and indoor environments clog these masks quickly. The moisture

from one’s breath combined with the clogged mask render it useless. 

God forbid you come in contact with Covid-19 and your mask traps it you

become a walking virus dispenser.

They should be changed or thrown out every 20 to 30 minutes in a non-sterile

environment.

Cloth masks were the last addressed and rendered useless with the

potential to make a person sick as they don’t filter anything. As you exhale

you are exhaling contaminants and carbon dioxide. The moisture caught

within these masks can become mildew-ridden over night.

Wrapping this up: 

N95 blows the virus into the air from a contaminated person.

Surgical masks supposedly don’t filter the virus upon inhaling it.

Cloth masks are worse than none. 

We are told to wear masks – have we been sold a bill of goods?

I found all the above info quite disturbing and figured I’d print the article

this morn. 

Surprise!!

This is what transpired: 

All of my new virtual friend’s files from FB were shared to my computer

in code. 

I managed to maneuver around like a computer technician and delete

upwards of 800 of her files.

My intention, afternoon project, is to  rid myself of the branch of 

social media I’m grown so tired of in recent months.

I’m old-school and constant changes which create confusion and

newfound problems consume too much precious time.

NOTE: OSHA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration

which assures safe and healthful working conditions for working class.
