I split them up by paragraphs, just easier.Dude, please split the posts you're quoting and address it section by section.
Testimony can be wrong and bias. There's testimony of doctors saying X works in their limited experience and then when a study is done we find out X doesn't work. Not saying you just ignore what people are saying but you use it as a starting point in the science, not an end point. The study you linked literally said they couldn't adjust for the main fucking limitation that has a high probability as the reason of the increased mortality rate.If you won't accept testimony, what datapoints would you accept as a corrolary for burnout? Higher patient mortality, referrals for stress among professionals, resignations? All rose precipitously.
I know how bad our healthcare system is. I also think every country with public healthcare has had their systems become worse over time as the government is not very good at effectively and efficiently running things. I'm fully in the camp that anything that is a necessity shouldn't be run for-profit but I can also recognize there are cons to doing that as well. I definitely feel the pros outweigh those cons, but you can't sweep the cons under the rug like they don't exist.The most obvious problem being that in for-profit healthcare, the administration has a motive they consider above the patient's wellbeing.
Anyway. Don't assume that everyone else's healthcare systems are as ghoulish as yours. That's my point. It's not a necessity for them to act in the Scrooge-like, callous way they do in the US-- it's a choice.
There's no good data that masking does anything. There's also no data that says masking hurts because it's kinda hard to put numbers on how well/poor masking kids affects their development. Vaccination has be shown not to prevent spread so it's then completely a personal choice, any vaccine mandate is not helping community safety at all and just kicking people out of society (and most of those you're pushing out are minorities). And, of course, if you had covid, then you don't need the vaccine (like measles and that's how measles was handled). Also, this strong push for covid vaccination has cost a lost in actual important vaccinations for kids that are quite down. In the end, will pushing the covid vaccine save more life? Distancing actually works obviously. However, is the cost of distancing worse than the benefits? People's mental health is worse than ever because people need to be with people to be healthy as well. You can't just be like stay away from people and stop socializing as if there's no cost to doing that. There's a reason why excess deaths are way up now and it's not due to covid anymore.I've never said it's possible to prevent every infection. But reasonable people only accept excess deaths that cannot be avoided. I refuse to place monetary costs (or the costs of relatively brief inconvenience, like vaccinating, masking and distancing) above human life, because that's grotesque.
I think Errant Signals Quarantine video is about the perfect example of how quarantining for such long periods is not healthy at all.
I did admit it, why can't you admit there's no data showing masks help much at all?And the rest is all blah.
Is it really that hard to just admit an error? I don't really give a toss about all your excuses for why you think it doesn't matter. All I was doing was directly addressing an error but I had to fight for umpteen more posts to get it acknowledged, and it's exhausting.
Uhh... the WHO does not recommend wearing masks during exercise. We know people with certain conditions are definitely not supposed to wear a mask during exercise so if masks don't affect your air intake at all, then how could it affect anyone?Yes, yes, evidence-free concern trolling, we know.
