Lux: Wear masks to help stop pandemic

Posted

Herman Cain caught the virus at Trump’s Tulsa rally and died. Four people from Trump’s Minnesota rally caught the virus, three are in the hospital, one on a ventilator. And Trump’s Rose Garden nomination was a super spreader and now he continues with a rally starting today.

Trump obviously had a mild case of COVID with meds none of us can get, and now he’s acting like he “beat” it. What he’s doing is continuing the spread of a pandemic in our country.

Wear a mask and stop the spread from others, wash your hands when you go home to keep from touching your eyes, nose or mouth with virus from outside. We do not have to live with the virus. It’s stoppable. Listen to Dr. Fauci, not on Fox where his words were taken out of context, and wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands. It’s not hard.

In a few weeks, if everybody does that, the virus will have no new host people to infect and will disappear. It needs a human to reproduce and live in.

Masks stop the spread. Wash your hands so you don’t get germs in your body from outside. Leave some room between you and others so if they’re contaminated and don’t know it (it takes days before showing symptoms when you spread the disease), you won’t get their germs in your body to reproduce and keep the virus going so we can’t get rid of it. If you don’t, you are guilty of spreading it, keeping it going, and to blame for not stopping it.

It’s not anybody else’s fault anymore now that it’s been around long enough for everybody to see how it works. Three weeks after coming in contact with the germ, you get it. Most live, but 212,000 have died and the death rate is rising. It’s anyone not wearing a mask, keeping social distance, and washing their hands when they go home’s fault.

Doctors are still saying we can get rid of COVID-19 if we all pitch in and do those three simple things.
