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
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 is what transpired:
All of my new virtual friend’s files from FB were shared to my computer
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.
