Can a citizen collect from those not wearing a mask?  

I see people every day on Beach road, somehow the police cannot see them even when they walk past thier station on Soi 9 in Pattaya.  Seems again there is an enforcement problem LOL

Masking must be stopped immediately. 

 

The ridiculous assertions that it is effective against a micron sized aerosol virus is sheer stupidity. 

 

Stop the ridiculous overreaction and fear mongering nonsense.

Unfortunately, probably just more bluster from authorities, and a missed revenue opportunity 😉 Needless to say, the anti-mask argument is uninformed. Add to that foreigners who enter the kingdom knowing the rules, then flaunt and complain about the rules... They should be fined double on principal.

It's not moral correctness. You should stop throwing around terms your don't understand, or start using them correctly. Otherwise, you will never have credibility. Moreover, masking is the law of the Kingdom (I don't make the rules). That's about as sincere as it gets. Get use to it, or get out of you can't handle it (or pay up if this report is to be believed). Show me just one reputable healthcare system that opposes mask as a key to any strategy to reduce occurances of respiratory infections. You can't. Your argument is in your own mind, and not based on science.

Sorry, but you are not qualified to determine who is credible. You have your opinion. 

 

It really does end there. 

 

But you have a good day and keep up the virtue signaling lectures.

Twitter? Dear God. I've no beef with your assertions but using Twitter for anything other than pictures of your meals lacks credibility. 😃

Well Poolie old bean, it seems a little more honest than main stream media these days. Where do you get your truth from these days, I would struggle to find anywhere that didn't have some sort of an agenda. Sometimes you just have to question 'facts' and not leave yourself open for being lied to ad infinitum.

But back to the mask, does it look a secure way to harness the the vapour we all breathe out?

Some people base their arguments on common sense, look at this and tell me that masks stop respiratory infections.

Another YouTube expert 🤣 Every surgical operating theaters in every country the world over disagrees. I do see vapor escaping a poorly fitted non N95 mask, and someone billowing to push it out unnaturally. Btw, Masking is a competent of a comprehensive strategy that includes distancing. Of course you will never be convinced. But you still have to wear a mask 🤷 don't get fined!

We all know the law, that still does not take away the futility of wearing something over the mouth and nose that is as much use as my old underpants trying to contain unwanted gasses escaping.

Some of us don't have to look on the internet to see if it's raining, we just look out of the window.

Spot on the money assessment right there. 

 

Amazing how many people have convinced themselves that a mask could have any real effect on the spread of the micron sized aerosol virus particles. 

Especially given the wide variety of masks and materials that are nothing more than a symbol of the irrational fear that they have been in since the beginning.

Please stop crying, and hope that one day you don't have to wear false teeth...😂

But, if you already do, do you every day complain to all and sundry about it...? 🤭

This one is for all the one line Lennie's on here, It must be so difficult to see logic when confronted by it, must refer to my overlords as I am not permitted to think for myself.

Wise. Because most people who rely on YouTube to make medical arguments are just promoting self-filling proficiencies anyway. Just remember, you can look out the window wearing rose color glasses and everything looks rosie, but what you don't see is what will kill you.

Which has nothing whatsoever to do with the useless bit of paper/cloth some people chose to wear as a badge of superiority.

There is no legitimate evidence that masks prevent the virus from being transmitted in any truly measurable way

Well guaranteed you will want them wearing masks if you end up in hospital on the operating table, though there being no legitimate evidence for them to do so.

But on another note, with all those complaining and in Thailand, guarantee they will toe the line and wear a mask when getting their VISA Extension.

I think the acceptance of the mask mandate would improve if one would see that there is an added benefit coming out of it. Those cheap mouth covers which according to my observation the vast majority is wearing is not preventing anything - neither not getting infected nor preventing the spreading of the virus in case the bearer is infected. What would be needed to be effective are so-called FFP2 or KN94 masks, but these are not cheap. Also, most masks are single use, but many (I admit: me too) use them more than just once which compromises their effectiveness.

And wearing a mask only makes sense inside and in outside places only if people cannot maintain social distancing. So this mandate is - in my eyes - to a large extent useless.

Ok, I understand, a mask mandate is a mask mandate and everyone needs to abide. However, isn't it a little bit like standing in front of a pedestrian crossing at midnight, the light showing red, and no traffic around whatsoever. Who would wait for the light turn to green before crossing the road?

Same with those masks. I am happy to wear them when it makes sense. But otherwise?

I just spent 3 nights in Bangkok and it wasn't difficult to find Thais not wearing facemasks. I did see one foreigner not wearing a mask and he didn't even have one under his chin.

There's plenty, all scientific from a number of separate large studies, all quantifiable and from "legitimate" sources such as the BMJ:
