Re: The Covid 19 Thread
I stand with Kamon on this. I am out in the country and masks are worn by maybe 50% of the people. I wear a mask in stores that have their own little version of the Gestapo minding the door, but typically would be considered selfish by some. Oh well. I do not have it, no-one I know has it, and the county I live in has had only a few positive cases. Many of the masks I do see being worn are being done so improperly anyway, leaving the nose fully exposed or worse. Don't even get me started on the effectiveness of many of the home-made face coverings so many are hiding behind and touting their "holier than thou attitudes". They are no more protected than I am and just as likely to spread the disease if they had it. Here's a hint, if your mask is made out of spandex, it ain't doin' nuttin. Practice social distancing, wash your hands often, avoid large crowds when able, and get on with your life.
The hydroxychloroquine/zinc treatment is to help your body fight off an exposure to the Covid-19 virus, not treat it if you already have symptoms as far as I know. Many of the nurses working the Covid units in Richmond are quietly taking this combination to help prevent catching it in the first place.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
