Check out this physician written article with endnotes regarding asymptomatic spread.   I read similar information a few weeks ago from another source (can’t remember where).

As a physician trained in public health,  Flight surgery,  and chemical biological weapons,  I can tell you there is no significant disease threat (death, mortality rate) from SARS-CoV-2. Less than 1%.   

 

That is unless you are elderly or have a significant medical issue.

 

There is NO medical indication to quarantine, separate, or mask healthy asymptomatic people.   

 

But what if those asymptomatic people pass it on to the elderly or  those with a significant medical condition? Then what??

 

BTW, any person on an anonymous message board can CLAIM to be a physician trained in public health -- ANY ONE -- whether they are or not.

 

I can claim that I'll be the next king of England - even if that might not be the truth.

Thank you, FlightSurgeon!  Saving this well-informed information you provided.  I have a feeling I will be needing it very soon, unfortunately.

Sorry, I going to state that I'm one of the many who actually want this to happen....

That is fine that you don't want to get the vaccine, but come fall, if the face mask requirement is lift, I won't continue wearing one on your behalf.

When the mask mandate is lifted, I'm still going to be wearing a mask. I believe that this pandemic has taught us the wisdom in that. It isn't just COVID out there. There's the cold, countless types of the flu, MERS, SARS, and who knows what else. Small inconvenience for a safer and healthier life. I wish that they would keep the mask mandate forever. It isn't that big of a deal to wear a mask.

I would never tell you or anyone else what to wear or not wear.  85% of new covid patients are mask wearers.  Why is it easier to listen to a self conflicted bureaucrat on TV than to simply read the warnings from the mask manufacturers on the side of the box?  

 

Further, the tears from your eyes drain directly into the back of the nasal cavity.  Anyone who takes eye drops should know this.  They've tasted the medication.  Why don't the doctors tell you that your wet eyeballs make a great virus delivery system?  Why are doctors the only ones wearing face shields?  To be fair, I have seen elderly women wearing masks and face shields on flights.  Good for them.  That is their choice.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."  -- C.S.

Americans and especially businesses should know better.

Okay. That's your right. I will continue to wear mine and distance myself from people as much as possible. Being an introvert has its benefits.

I won't fly Southwest if they require a Vaccine.   I will buy my own twin turboprop private plane if needed and Southwest will have lost an A-List customer.  Airlines have tremendous lobbying power.  It is time they used it to save their business.  

 

I have taken many vaccines.  I also know a lot about testing methodologies in corporations.  Testing, especially drug testing, cannot be rushed and it was.  I don't trust that the vaccine is being handled properly and kept below -13 to -94 F (depending upon the manufacturer).  I'm not willing to trust people with a cart blanche exemption from liability with my life.  

 

I am watching my aunt's health deteriorate rapidly after her second shot.  The doctors don't expect her to live another month.  She was in good health before the vaccine.  I have had COVID.  I think the virus is safer.  At least in my case. "My body, my choice!"  Hasn't that been the mantra for decades?  Has it suddenly become an inconvenient truth?
