  1. It's a difficult thing to control and accurately study. But given that we have plenty of conclusive studies that masks vastly reduce the amount of aerosolized particles emanating from a person, it's hardly a big leap to suggest they're likely to reduce transmission to other people? I don't think they're particularly effective in reducing the wearer's risk.
  2. I already linked you the evidence but you ignored it so you could continue your daftness.
  3. 'twas ever thus, just easier to see it now.
  4. https://www.pnas.org/content/118/4/e2014564118
  5. They tried (and thankfully failed) to criminalise hacking tools under similar offences.
  6. Half of those were blamed on rock music too. As a guitarist and part time anarchist I feel very oppressed.
  7. Nothing to do with one being working from home and the other working in a building with hundreds of people in, no? Probably a bit easier to pootle about on some documents on a computer when sick than control a class full of kids too.
  8. Is sick pay the only thing different between these two examples?
  9. Of the ~dozen people I know who've had it, most in their 30s, only a couple would describe it as a non-event. Several had a very rough time (though a couple of those were pre-vaccine), and one was put on oxygen. None were overweight.
  10. We both know you don't have any worthwhile statistics on that.
  11. They said "Covid makes teachers sick". You said "No it doesn't."
  12. I don't think either of us has a statistically significant sample size, but to suggest that every teacher who gets it won't even notice they have it is patently daft. Neither of them had pre-existing conditions or high BMIs, though.
  13. The two teachers I know who've had it were laid up for a week each.
  14. Why would it be? The book is mostly a load of overhyped toss anyway. Everyone I knew at school had a copy. Prosecuting people for having particular bits of knowledge is literally thought crime.
  15. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-58926030 Illegal now apparently.
