Hi Bob, in 2003, the affected countries were mostly in Asia. People in those countries did wear masks. The professor in the video also mentioned it.

There was no shortage, I think the reasons are:
The spread of SARS was not as fast and easily as covid-19.
There were not too many international travelers at that time, so not too many imported cases for countries outside Asia.
Most importantly, there were no face mask hoarders.

No politics here too, but the face masks were already sold out in almost every store around the world in early Jan. You probably can guess who bought up all the masks and caused the shortage.

No politics here, but why if everyone was wearing masks in 2003, was there no shortage to complain about in that SARS epidemic?
Were hospitals better prepared? Were more masks available?
What was different?

Hi Bob,

Quite frankly, everyone was not wearing a mask in 2003. Not here in the U.S. In fact, I don't remember anyone at all wearing a mask at that time.
However, (this is incomplete information) I do know that during the swine flu epidemic a little over a decade ago, tens of millions of masks were released from the government's stockpile. I could be wrong, but I think they went to medical facilities, not the public. And for whatever reason, they were never replenished.
I don't remember people walking around with masks then, either. 
With very little exception, and only on rare occasions with a single individual, have I ever seen a mask in public before this event.

In 2003, SARS didn't die of natural causes, it was killed by extensive public health measures (quarantining, social distancing, everyone was wearing a mask when in public).
Can't depend on weather alone.

I really like what this professor said at the end of the video.
"This is science, we have to be humble, the moment we become arrogant, we'll lose."

I did the math according to this morning's official statics for the U.S. As of this morning (3/29), the death rate in the U.S. is 1.1%. We may be leading the world in the number of infected cases reported, but (unlike some sources would have us believe) NOT in the number per capita and NOT in the percentage of deaths. The actual numbers will not be known until this thing ends. That's the way it always is, but they appear to be trending down from the original projections. I'm not trying to lessen the seriousness of the epidemic, believe me. I'm 69.... my wife is 68 and still working at the local hospital. But a little hope can't hurt. And we're not getting that from very many sources. Pray for a cure, an early summer and those everywhere in the world who are already in need.

Good here. Not worried about the 'virus'. More concerned about what the Government is doing...

Interesting that in the Old Testament there are many references to hand washing, quarantine, and many hygienic examples. There is really nothing new under the sun. The flu typically starts to fad away around early to middle April so hopefully this will follow same coarse. It does seem odd that they have tested different treatments that show great results but doctors seem reluctant to use even when it is existing drug that is tolerated well.

Hi Dennis,
Question.
Since as you say it gets hot and humid in your area why does that reduce risk?
These virus seem to thrive in the human body which is 98 degrees and quite humid in the lungs.
Any ideas? I would love to know more.
Bob

Better to be safe than sorry Dennis.  We also have to wear gloves and masks delivering mail.  Glad to see its universal 😁

Unfortunately, I've noticed a disturbing trend. Discarded gloves are popping up all over the place, especially in parking lots outside of stores and on the city streets. My car was in the shop which is a mile and a half from my house. When I walked there to retrieve it, I decided to count gloves. In that mile and a half, I counted 15 gloves and one mask. Who are these people and what are they thinking? While I realize the need for these procedures, this is another case where I believe the business of certain entities keeping people in a constant panic does not help. It creates thoughtless disease spreading idiots.
