    This is the study conclusion:

    "The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use. The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection."​

    It's not what you said.

    Perhaps you can explain why the Right Wing New York Post reported that the daughter, a registered Republican, received a ballot for her dead mother which was subsequently filled in and posted. You're a troll

    Scales and votes are not a factor in crooked elections.

    “Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt says a glitch in the state’s “motor-voter” process has allowed non-U.S. citizens to register to vote, even though he thinks they did so accidentally.”

    By the way that's the same respirator I posted a photo of, the only difference it has the incorrect filter cartridge mounted to it.

    I guess you don't know the difference between a particulate filter and one rated for working around bio-hazards.[/QUOTE]

    Does that mask filter the air that you exhale?

    LOL You've ran away from your own link which stated:
    "Reckhow supposedly mailed the ballot back on Oct. 6 and the BOE received it and declared it valid on Oct. 8, tracking records show. But there’s a problem: Frances Reckhow, who was born on July 6, 1915, and would be 105 today, died in 2012, according to an obituary filed with the Staten Island Advance.


    Her daughter, Carol Huben — a registered Republican, according to voting records — is listed as residing at the same address as her late mother."

    "There we have it. Republican voters filling out fake ballots once again"

    Perhaps you can now state what was your point in quoting my post 337?

    They were tested by a "nationally recognized testing laboratory" and chose not to apply for NIOSH approval.

    Search Google for the picture. You'll find out who makes it.

    The point is that almost anything can be dangerous to your health. You can't live in fear of everything, you must choose what to avoid. The government should have o say i your final decision as they are the most dangerous of all.

    So you demand that others work to support your silly claims and won't do the work yourself. Lends to a certain lack of credence to your claims, but we all know that.

    Don't have to explain as you would never accept any explanation. You ignore it when it happens with democrats but get in a hissy fit from a single republican.

    BTW, the only troll here is you, repeating what you know to be lies to boost your alleged superiority (which exists only in your mind).

    It's a g-d picture, but the fact is a P100 is effective against SARS-CoV-2 and is not an "incorrect filter cartridge."

    https://europepmc.org/article/med/24011377#free-full-text
    You "guess" wrong.

    Why are you misleading people about P100 respirators?

    I didn't read past this.

    The glitch has had no impact on elections, as the number of people mistakenly registered was small, but Schmidt thinks that statewide there could be many more and he wants the state to review registrations. He also wants it to cross check all active voter registration records against all current PennDOT records containing INS Indicators.

    No, respirators protect you.

    This respirator...

    8C490C49-8098-44F0-8562-A590F37C07A1.jpeg

    has a ring...

    upload_2020-11-26_10-1-52.png
    (left, above)

    that clips on the front of the respirator that allows the wearer to put a mask over the over top of the unit.

    P.S. If you search on the first picture, you'll find the name of the respirator.

    I'm not they are not gas rated therefore they are incapable of trapping particles as small as a virus.

    And worse yet is the fact you are misunderstanding what is required to do the job properly and safely and recommending that respirator is actually putting people at risk, as you don't understand what a Exhalation Valve is.

    So maybe do some studying and get a clue before posting any more risky advice that could make people catch CV-19.

    In that case they are considered counterfeit respirators and should be pulled from the U.S. market as they are falsely rated.

    You Trump supporters are in obvious agony over the election and lash out in anger. :( I don't want to "trigger" you, so here's what I got on an image search...

    https://o2industries.com/products/o2-curve-1-2?variant=36154911883424

    I don't recommend this respirator because it isn't NIOSH approved.
