To mask or not to mask…

Don’t take to task, those who ask, why don’t you wear a mask?

Masks can be bothersome, but they are our first line of defense against viruses. You don’t see the little buggers, but they are there, everywhere, waiting to ambush you. And like guerillas, they will hit and run the minute that you lower your guard.
And by the way, these little beasties are atheists… they don’t believe in God, in prayers or incantations. Don’t count on divine powers to ever intercede for you.

Some people thought that like bad guests, masks abused their stay, but this is not the case. The authorities are now warning that in view of the resurgence of the Covid Variants, masks may become mandatory again in all public venues.

Yes, it is a constraint, but what is the alternative? Moving to another place? This is a worldwide problem and no place on this planet is safe…

And then, instead of circling the wagons, we have the skeptics, the doubters, the rebels who feel that this is not necessary. We don’t need no stinking masks or vaccines they say. This is much ado about nothing… we are healthy, and the proposed cure might be worse than the disease… we don’t know what is in these syringes and it might do more harm than good.

Well, let’s consider how many people died from the disease versus how many people died from the cure. The margin is so wide that it is not even debatable. And let’s look at the annoyance of wearing a mask versus the satisfaction of not wearing one. Is the smugness of being a free-thinker worth the risk?

You might opt to swim with the sharks without any protection, but personally, I would rather wear a stainless-steel mesh suit to frolic with these guys. Yes, it is more cumbersome, but it is way safer.

And if you are still unwilling to wear masks or get a free jab in the arm, just consider what it would cost you if you were to be hospitalized.

According to Healthcare Finance,

“The average cost of hospital care for COVID-19 patients without insurance or who receive out-of-network care varies greatly by age – from $51,389 for patients between 21- and 40-years-old, to $78,569 for patients between 41 and 60 years old, according to updated cost analysis data from FAIR Health.”

 A little sobering isn’t it? Save yourself and your family a lot of troubles and get vaxed! It is much cheaper than a little stopover at your local hospital.
