Zero Edge The fact that no government has begun investing in N95 manufacturing just screams incompetence. Guess what provides better immunity than a vaccine? A N95 MASK! Guess what works regardless of what virus is going around? A N95 MASK! Guess what can stop ANY PANDEMIC IMMEDIATLY. N95 MASKS! Seriously, this not only helps the current situation but prepares you for ALL future pandemics with out having to develop a new vaccine each time which takes upwards of a year. If you had a stockpile of N95 masks when all of this started we would be living in a different world today. INVEST IN THE NOW AND INVEST IN THE FUTURE.
🏒 Lucian Marin We tried this before vaccines. It didn't work. Vaccines work a bit better, but they aren't a cure. We need Covid medicine.

Zero Edge We have always been in short supply of the "good" masks. The vaccines are actually less effective at preventing you from getting it than this mask. Not to mention this mask will be useful regardless of what kind of pandemic. If you build the factories they will be used. Have a stockpile ready for the next pandemic. Vaccine development and deployment takes too long to prevent a pandemic. These can be used as a tool for prevention. Possibly not a perfect solution for todays problems but it would still hamper the spread a lot more effectively than a vaccine only approach. Talking about N95 masks not single layer cloth masks...
☕ David Antoine Vaccines can eradicate a pandemic, like the smallpox if I'm not mistaken... But a lot of factors are involved so I don't know if we can do it for the SARS-COV-2...
Zero Edge Unfortunately it isn't possible with the tools we have even at full vaccination. There are animal reservoirs, not to mention the vaccine does not provide immunity just some kind of "better outcome". The previous vaccines were more of a one and done situation and provided real immunity. These vaccines are not in the same tier of immunity and require consistent "boosters". It is a lot harder to eradicate a virus (even if it did provide the correct immunity) when it requires the entire population of the world to have had a shot within the last 6 months as opposed to anytime in their life.

☕ David Antoine Ivermectin seems to indeed stop the virus entering the cells, in vitro. Japan is officially using it and it seems to work looking at the numbers but don't quote me on that. Afaik, hydroxy chloroquine is useless against it because of its molecular structure... Ivermectin needs clinical tests to know exactly what the efficiency is but it's a safe molecule used for the past decades so, I'd rather take it as a prophylactic then risk a mRNA vaccine. But that is just me...
