Very true the initial viral load is a huge factor!!! Also another reason I wore double masks initially ( e.g. back in April - May ) is that it extended the wearable lifetime of the n95 mask. I was blessed to have a few packs in my garage from before the pandemic and if I just wore it on its own it maybe lasted a couple maybe few times of wearing before I could see the material wearing, but if I wore a cloth over it then it would last 10 if not 20 times. If you remember back then it was really difficult to get the 95s, and even now they're not cheap...

get up early and go surf - it'll make that hangover go away and/or make the workday more tolerable :)

They say Brazil and it's high infection rate is a Petri dish for new variants. The more people who catch it, the more chance for mutation. One from the jungle might be reinfecting the previously exposed.

The situation in (and presumably around Manaus, Brazil is frightening. They'd figured that their terrible epidemic had infected nearly everyone, so there shouldn't be many more infections. There was a lot of medical interest in what could be the first post-pandemic city (along with maybe Minot, North Dakota). Then they had another terrible epidemic. A variant that happily infects people who've had the original version of the virus. Manaus is not some weird third-world city in an exotic environment. They have competent hospitals and medical people. What happened to them can happen to us.

I'm not looking to start a fight, but do those of you who only listen to the right slanted news ever hear things like the issue in Brazil?

I'm trying to figure out why so many of you fight tooth and nail against simple things like wearing a mask.

Can we expect that to happen in all the states - that are not masked up?

I'm liking the Korean KF-94 masks I bought. Good fit.
