Discussion in 'Montreal Canadiens' started by Lshap, Jul 28, 2020.
Same as it ever was.
Reminder that politics are not allowed. Discussion is limited to Covid-19.
Houseparty with 700 people... During a pandemic...
I expect that number to be surpassed. Not even kidding.
Well, the biggest hurdle is probabably finding the right house to accomodate even more guests.
Man will we ever see a full Bell Center watching hockey again?
It will take a while. But yes.
But the real question is, when the Bell Center CAN be full again, will people go watch the team?
It wasn’t even full before the pandemic so I doubt it.
I mean...that's a huge wedding venue.
We respected social distancing and offered purell at the entrance

Who here expects a "revision" on August 1st with like 20+ deaths?
I kinda do. With the 150+ cases per day for quite a while, it's weird to see such little deaths.
No it's not. The people who are infected are in the 20-40 range, so a lot less complications. This disease really killed the old and/or already dying.
In June, they were updating retroactive deaths daily. So they avoided having that final day where there is a big jump in deaths, like the month before, there was 200+ deaths that were added retroactively once.
I'm curious to see if the retroactive deaths are done monthly again or if there aren't any issues.
The correlation between symptoms severity and the level of exposure to the virus would absolutely make sense. That might be why many CHSLD and health workers had it worst than most of the population of their own age at the peak of this pandemic.
I mean everyone knows at this point that masks are extremely important. It's too bad we didn't do it from the start and it took the government too long to realize, but it's not too late now. They are vital and will be the way to beat this disease.
Anyone who doesn't wear a mask deserves criminal punishment. I have zero issues with pepper spraying them directly in their bare face if they are indoors in public with no mask. That's what you get you dumb f***ing piece of shit.
I remember a few months ago how a lot of users wanted an N95 mask and nothing else.
Now, we seem to just have settled for almost any face covering. Some of the reusables have no filter, some are made of ultra thin materials or just provide a fashionable look but without any indication as to their properties.
Are we just now valuing a lowest common denominator that involves as many people as possible wearing them, without regard to what they’re wearing?
Also, seeing way too many in stores not wearing their masks properly, esp. with their noses not covered. And that includes store personnel.
Hence why even a vaccine working at reducing viral load by 50% would be a win as it would absolutely lead to less severe outcomes.
I agree with you, but at the same time something is better than nothing.
Way too many people wearing the masks wrong but this can be corrected. They aren't against wearing the mask, they don't have that mental deficiency, so they can be taught and will be open to it.
Those with the brain defect who refuse to wear a mask are a different story, unfortunately.
As for mask types, I believe that any 2 layer fabric mask is good enough to make a huge difference. I have a 2 layer fabric mask where I would need to blow really hard to make a candle go out while wearing the mask. To me that's pretty good.
No worse than the two with the "questionable" symbol on their masks. Deserves to be locked up right away.
I'm in NS so we have no active cases and as such, I haven't needed to wear a mask and have been very very diligent about social distancing. I did have to use my mask when the f***ing police released a chemical pepper agent in my apartment building and it was f***ing me and my cats up, it helped when I went out into the main area.
So if it can provide a barrier against a f***ing chemical agent, it can do wonders against some droplets.
That’s a fair point. Getting as many as possible to wear it is still a benefit and you can ward off the shortcomings of their masks by adding social distancing to the mix.
As for people wearing their mask wrong, who is going to tell them? People tend to lose their shit when being suggested anything about masks, in general.
