    Re: Covid-19 discussion thread

    I'm so pleased that your son has found his ideal school environment after such a horrendous ordeal. Some parents are plain ignorant but they should never be allowed to traumatise vulnerable children and get away with it..

    I was lucky getting a special school placement for my daughter..Having a girl in the class was quite an exception then!

    My daughter has a dual diagnosis-ASD and OCD-so Covid has destroyed her safety mechanisms. All that she has learned re managing her OCD has been swept away so it's a tough one..

    Well my daughter sneezed in my face a few times so I couldn’t do much to stop it.

    Hopefully in an office setting it may be harder for people to catch it from me with our screens, distancing, sanitising and hand washing. I’ll let you know!

    If you feel TL:DR - WEAR A MASK.

    Wear a mask CORRECTLY...covering your NOSE ie that long pointy thing in the middle of your face.

    No excuses

    As my brother says, "Not covering your nose with your mask is like wearing a condom on your balls."

    Your thinking would be accurate Pain. Influenza cases in the southern hemisphere 2020 are way down.

    The effectiveness of masks and face coverings is something that really needs close scrutiny and very clear results made available to the public. Scientists have been very wishy washy with their advice on this. I still cannot fathom why they weren’t pushed more during the peak here in the UK. At that point they were almost discouraged.

    I would say however, that it’s clear that most outbreaks are in places that masks aren’t worn. Pubs, restaurants, schools and household gatherings have all contributed to larger outbreaks. These are all places where masks aren’t required. We don’t see that in supermarkets or shops, or public transport, where masks are largely mandatory.

    Do you breath in more carbon dioxide wearing a mask? I don't wear one, they make me feel like I can't breath. But, I don't go anywhere near people anyway.

    It's not particularly comfortable wearing a mask but we should all wear one. It's no big deal but a much bigger deal if you pass on the virus to others less fortunate than yourself. You just have to get used to it. If masks are subsequently proved to be of little use then it's no big sacrifice for us.
