    It’s official - You have to wear a mask when walking, jogging, or cycling

    Is a good article. In essence, keeping a distance leaves time and space for virus particles to fall down and dissipate. The effectiveness of masks is difficult to assess, as you don't really know how people got infected, but there are many reliable anecdotal descriptions of the effect. In...

    Schools will reopen on Monday

    The idea here is that it's more manageable to keep children apart than in a school setup. You can have a class in a huge hall where tables are spaced apart and not cramped like in most schools. Children are then also not exposed to a home environment, bringing the virus back home.

    Wave of COVID-19 cases coming - These are the hotspots in Joburg and Cape Town

    If you are serious about this, and have credible evidence, you will supply the proof and not rely on innuendo. I have so far not encountered any person who are able to supply evidence. We can thus safely assume that you are engaging in propaganda.

    Ramaphosa: Worst still to come in war against COVID-19

    Thank you for explaining it very understandably. They lost traction when they started their war on grilled chicken and atchar ladies. Then the backtrack on cigarettes and enforcement abuse. Final straw the clothing regulations. That lost them the little goodwill they had left. And the mess...

    It’s official - You have to wear a mask when walking, jogging, or cycling

    The evidence around this is conflicting. The flow-restriction masks or nose-clips that are sold is supposed to simulate high altitude training to boost red cell volumes. But as always with exercise, things aren't as simple as that. If you start looking in detail, to get the benefit of altitude...

    It’s official - You have to wear a mask when walking, jogging, or cycling

    O2 and CO2 molecules are much smaller than the holes in a mask. It's just the force of your breath having the thing move in and out. If you have a mask system that fits where it has the mask moving in and out, you have a good system going. It means that air isn't coming in through the sides...

    It’s official - You have to wear a mask when walking, jogging, or cycling

    Didn't read the article, did you? I didn't drink the coolaid. If there is no-one around, you won't be spreading anything to anyone. That is just plain common sense.

    It’s official - You have to wear a mask when walking, jogging, or cycling

    There is more than enough oxygen in the air you exhale. You remove at most 2% of the 20% oxygen in air. In addition, oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules are way smaller than any cloth mask you have to wear. You can run very safely with a covering of your face, it is done all the time in colder...

    Hopefully not, that is the purpose of the whole exercise. Main reason it is starting to fall apart, is that the various factions now has had some time to regroup and strategize to get maximum trough slurping benefits.
