Doesn’t the Lancet still have egg on their face from the whole Hydroxichloriqine fiasco?Will you wear goggles? It seems like such a minor inconvenience, & it's for the protection of others. Is it fair to say that if you don't, you're being selfish & want people to die?
"Dr. Anthony Fauci says that eye protection may be recommended at some point to help prevent spreading COVID-19."
“Theoretically you should protect all of the mucosal surfaces, so if you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” he said.
"Qatar Airlines recently asked flight attendants to start wearing safety goggles, however, as well as full protective suits, masks and gloves. And some of the health experts who spoke with NPR recently suggested it might be wise to wear goggles or a face shield on a crowded airplane."
"But a recent report published in The Lancet that analyzed 172 observational studies on how physical distancing, face masks and eye protection affected the spread of COVID-19 suggested that people could be three times less likely to get infected if they wear eye protection. Face shields, goggles and glasses were associated with a lower risk of infection (6%) compared with no eye covering (16%)."
"And the CDC notes that while the nose and mouth are the main areas where the virus enters the body, “it may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.”
Dr. Fauci recommends wearing goggles to prevent catching the coronavirus
From the coast of gold, across the seven seasWe're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take it
Gonna break it, gonna shake it
Let's forget it better still
I love Maiden.From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm traveling on, far and wide
But now it seems, I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but someone else
I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by, in the night
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it til it's gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be til my dying day...
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years...
Face up, make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years
