Any sources?
Here is a RCT that compared cloth and medical masks
https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006577

Quote
An analysis by mask use showed ILI (RR=6.64, 95% CI 1.45 to 28.65) and laboratory-confirmed virus (RR=1.72, 95% CI 1.01 to 2.94) were significantly higher in the cloth masks group compared with the medical masks group. Penetration of cloth masks by particles was almost 97% and medical masks 44%.

They added this addendum later to emphasize that the cloth masks used were sourced locally and not necessarily high quality (like many cloth masks in circulation). If you are using a high quality 3-ply cloth mask it might be just as effective, and, according to @yochiek93 , perhaps even more so.

It’s important to note that this study was performed on smaller rhinovirus droplets so it can’t be evenly compared to coronaviruses but it does show the relative efficacy of medical masks vis a vis cloth masks.

Funny how you didn’t post on this thread when it was people celebrating Biden’s win
I did in another thread. Fair and balanced.
Idiots on both sides with the majority being Trump supporters.

Right. It was imperative to balance the 2 posts immediately prior to yours which were pointing to "these idiots" (in those cases liberal ones) flaunting rules.

Idiots on both sides with the majority being Biden supporters.

FTFY.

Unless you have real time numbers to prove otherwise

Bigger issue with those 2 are they’re “do as I say not as I do, sheeple”.

Look at the crowds for Trump super spreader rallies. Tens on thousands of his uneducated supporters.

And you can look at the huge massive gatherings of thousands upon thousands of uneducated people celebrating Biden's victory in NYC, Chicago etc.

Everyone sees what they want to see.

Exactly, makes it even worse and more idiotic.

There seems to be a big difference between the rallies. One mostly wore masks and the other one didn't.
I didn't know drinking Kool-Aid affected you eye sight.  :P
And for the record Trump won the uneducated vote again by a wide margin.  :)

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

No difference to me. Huge gatherings with or without masks with zero SD are against the rules. Period.

Besides, the 2 articles preceding your post were actually about indoor gatherings. You just conveniently countered them by posting about outdoor gatherings. Big difference.

And for the record Trump won the uneducated vote again by a wide margin.  :)

Irrelevant. The educated people who voted for Biden were NOT the ones participating in those street celebrations.

Really? We're comparing Newsome's dinner with 12 people to COVIdiots who go to weddings while Covid+? Safety, my a$$. Let's just be honest.

I forgot the /s. The MO on the left is to claim everything political is not about politics.
COVID - safety
BLM, etc. - fighting systemic racism.
Those are the 2 currently at the forefront, but this has been going on for a long time.
...and one is 100 times more dangerous. That's the difference between me and you. You view masks from a political view.
Source that masks reduce spread by 99%?

Exactly where do you see that I view masks from a political view? Wrong party here.

You're going completely off topic and off track here. I'll just let you have the last word.

Source that masks reduce spread by 99%?

Especially when there's no SD and not everyone is even wearing, no way it gets reduced by 99%.
