do they do t
do they do them in sizes other than large ?
I think it was one size fits all. Hers is OK. She hasn't a big head at all (although she has hair) It seems to fit her head OK.
Don't think she has the hang of how it fits though.

And made in Anglesey.
Since bad people are legally obliged to use them they are common litter. Wasn't like that when it was just good people wearing them.
I'll repeat my position that the infection rate can and should be controlled by not doing stuff rather than adding an overhead to our already wasteful ways.
Natural immunity after infection may well be a major factor if infection rates drop globally for this latest westerner disease. So might vaccines although that is about big pharma making big bucks and whacky billionaires....great for the divide between rich and poor no doubt .
The climate emergency should still be a priority and some folk seem determined to fail this test as spectacularly as possible. Opportunity missed .
Sadly, the jelly fish got the mask too late.
I noticed a few pairs of worn latex gloves in a drain earlier :/
Doesn't matter how many times you say it, it still doesn't make it correct. Have you not read the study out of Kings College London? It makes sobering reading regarding lasting immunity.
Please remind me again how you propose to control the infection rate by doing 'nothing'? I look forward to your detailed analysis backed up with evidence based statistics.
Scotland, phase 1.
I assume you mean easing of restrictions, which was only made possible by the initial lockdown, which is the exact opposite of what you are proposing.
It didn't go that swimmingly well though really.
I don't see going from a high rate to a low rate as indicating the approach was unsuccessful.
...if anything it was too successful and few folk were wearing masks.
How successful were masks in tackling the Spanish Flu? And Vaccines?
I assumed that he meant not having 'raves', not having parties, not going to the pub or Spain or Granny's rather than taking no action.
You mean apart from the fact that vaccines for the Spanish Flu didn't exist? Together with masks not being advised everywhere, and usually made of porous material which made them as effective as a chocolate teapot?
I included the word effective and what has changed in regards to the masks?
Fact: There isn't a 100% effective. Only the KN95 is 95% effective. So.. don't wear one? No.. wearing one will always be better than not wearing one.
1) Wearing one gives you a better chance of not cathing the virus and getting sick.
2) Also, wearing a mask cuts down the chances of you spreading the virus.
Are masks inconvient? Yes.. but they're needed.
That's a Taylor Wessing winner entry!
So how come the infection rate went down without them? Stats from this country during this pandemic suggest otherwise.
What masks do is give people something to make and sell. They are good for the economy, don't change the virus situation and are a tragedy for the environment.
Bonus bottle of hand sanitiser with this one today .
When they were optional they were harmless but now the kind of people that leave litter need a mask to go buy the rubbish.
Oh... that has to be one of the most uniformed thoughts I've run into. In the US states that implemented mandatory mask usage and social distancing have see a massive reduction in cases of the virus and deaths. Meanwhile, states that didn't do that and opened up too soon saw the opposite. They had massive increases in the virus and deaths associated with it. Look at FL, TX and CA.
The cost of a mask or any other kind of protection is nothing compared to the cost of getting sick or making others sick.
And according to the MAYO clinic they do help
And here's some of the science behind all of this
Here's the US's Whisky Tango, Trailer Park, Hold my Beer response. Oh and it's sponsored by K&H filters,.
Get back to me when you find one that just did masks but no social distancing and saw a reduction in cases.
Calling me uniformed when not understanding the point being made....quality!
