We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

Our understanding of the size of droplets it can spread in has changed. We now know that it can travel in much smaller droplets than we originally knew. Big droplets fall to the ground quickly, so masks don't really matter. Small droplets can travel further, so having a mask to get in the way can help to prevent them from traveling as far.

I think asymptomatic spread was the main reason for the change and also what they were doing initially wasn’t working so they modified it.

Also the fear of hoarding which would have made it hard for hospitals to acquire them. My wife is still having a hard time getting N95 and prices have tripled if not more.

I am not trying to mislead anyone.
You posted a video from 2-3 months ago, uploaded with a date of 4 days ago, with a description that "Dr Fauci now says no masks." Your own caption in this thread was "Fauci says mask are useless!" when his current stance has changed entirely, and anyone who has paid any attention at all would know that.

If you can't see how that is misleading, I can't help you.

It is a placebo- meaning useless- according to his own words.

If he has flipped a 180- great- but why did he say this?

He said it might stop a droplet. Therefore, it's not useless.

He also says "right now." I don't know when this video was taken, but I'd be willing to bet it was before we confirmed community spread and asymptomatic transmission.

The point is- he did a detailed interview- 65 days ago and specifically said- mask do not help. 7 out of 10 people not wearing them in public obviously believe this.

The media are the ones that scared everyone into the mask thing- not Fauci.

It is no wonder people question his credibility when he flip flops on something so basic as the usefulness of a mask during a pandemic.

So hey that will all go a long way to giving you something to do.
I feel for you, brother. At my old house, we had an old concrete porch replaced with a wooden deck. The guys doing the demolition must have hit the gas line because when we got home, we could smell the natural gas. Had to have the gas company come out. They shut off our gas and, of course, would not turn it back on until we had a plumber out to fix it. :-) Luckily, this was in September so we didn't need it for heat, but still a pain in the butt.

There are people higher up than him that have flip flopped since the beginning.

None of this is true, but you don't seem to care about that.
