what idiot came with the "the masks are t o protect others"?

It is the same thing as protecting yourself, if u wear a mask yourself, you are "protected" yourself, stuff cant get in,these people who came with the "masks are to protect others" should have their medical licenses revoked, they caused low iq people confronting others over not wearing masks and getting into some arguments, some got injured, some even got killed, so irresponsible of these health "experts."I am not protecting you by wearing a mask,that air inside my lungs will get out into the atmosphere, its not gonna be trapped inside me forever by wearing a mask,you are protecting yourself by wearing a mask. How many more idiots will get into fist fights before medical experts realize their stupid idea to say this was awful?

    Uh, the CDC said the other day that they have never advised people that masks protect us. Instead, they said that masks help prevent the spread from the cake holes of infected people. So there's a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation out there.

    The same idiot who believes in Chicken Little............'the sky is falling, Chicken Little'.

    FRESH AIR is VITAL for immune health - NOT masks.  

    All of this mask B.S. is only being used to control citizens like the communists do in China.

    Still with this idiocy? Sheesh. Okay, let me make it even simpler, how the mask protects others.

    COVID-19 is spread by aerosolized droplets that people exhale through the nose and mouth. They exhale even larger ones if they cough, sneeze, talk, shout, or sing. Two layers of tightly woven cotton (and certain man-made materials) stops those droplets, even if the wearer talks or coughs, so long as the mask fits well.

    Yes, the outside of the mask stops droplets that could reach you, but unless you work very close to other people (in which case you should wear a mask with an N95 filter), you're stopping thousands of times more droplets on the masks inside, from your exhalations, than come at you from the outside.

    (Your mask that smashes your nose does not fit well. Buy a different type. Lots of people find the pleated masks press their noses too much. The shaped mask with a seam right up the middle fit them better.)

    So your mask's main job is protecting other people, and your handwashing, avoiding touching your own face and eyes, and social distancing are protecting yourself.

    You know why it doesn't protect you (fully anyway)?  You can get covid by droplets in your eyes, you can get it on your hands and touch your face when you take your mask off, etc.  The mask is LARGELY to aid in control of YOUR bodily fluids, etc from nose and mouth getting out.  COVID isn't in the air, it's in droplets, like saliva, etc.  THAT is what gets reduced or eliminated by the mask.  So the main problem is you just completely lack understanding of how the transmission of the disease occurs.
