Thanks for that Ang , I knew there must be some important import we required ..

Saffron is one of the world's most precious spices. Just a few strands are enough to flavour food. More recently, scientific reports and studies have been published that reveal a balancing effect on nerves, feelings and mood. Vitamins B6 and B12 as well as magnesium contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Pantothenic acid, also called vitamin B5, supports mental performance and contributes to the normal formation of neurotransmitters. With 1 saffron-nerve-capsule daily, you can support your mental performance and well-being as well as your resilience in work and everyday life.

That will be what the Young Scientists have been studying ...

There should be studies that prove this scientifically, if there were then this would surely be the advice regarding mask wearing.

Nearly everyone on here is NOT an expert on any of this we are all trying to plot our way through with the advice we are given from sources we'd like to be able to trust.

I've listened to a range of views from experts and their advice is pretty different.Non experts calling others dumb as if their view is definitely correct has been a big theme of this forum.

They can't even get the kit for the health providers let alone thinking to make mask wearing compulsory for everyone else.

There could well be a growing problem with seasonal allergies into the mix here, I would tend to put more weight behind this becoming a problem and I've heard very little spoken about it.

My way of thinking being a long term hayfever sufferer is that asymptomatic Covid carriers with seasonal allergy could be a bigger cause for concern with transmission than would normally be the case when those with similar symptoms out of the allergy season who shouldn't be out in public.

Sneezing fits with face masks is a delightful prospect for allergy sufferers walking round the supermarket with a face full of snot under their masks.

Very true!

Let me ask you a question why do we slap kids around the head when they sneeze and don’t put their hand in front of their mouths and nose?

Why do we call our colleagues at work “ dirty bstards“ when they sneeze or cough and don’t cover their mouths and nose?
Report stridingedge April 22, 2020 9:37 AM BST
Yes of course there's never a time when you want others coughing and sneezing at you but most would normally turn away or as you say put their hand over their faces or cough sneeze into a tissue/hanky. How many of these would then sanitise properly is another matter in normal times probably not enough but most wouldn't get too hung up about it in more normal times.

The thing is People were told to self isolate when this all kicked off if they were showing symptoms, no one should really be out with a cough at the moment mask or otherwise! A mask shouldn't be seen as being ok to wear so that enables one to go out in public if they are coughing/sneezing.

Asymptomatic people would from many experts should not be posing much of a threat with the social distancing /sanitising/not touching faces recommended measures since lockdown.

Of course when lockdown is eased with any social distancing measures relaxed somewhat face masks could well become more relevant to offer more protection. Hayfever for me looks to be a potential issue with transmission especially with sneezing.You will many more people that wouldn't usually have these allergy symptoms developing them and they may think it's just hayfever but they could be asymptomatic carriers of covid.

The wearer if asymptomatic would be of little threat to yourself under social distancing if you followed all the guidance that has been given regarding hand washing after you have been out and not touching your face.

A wearer with symptoms should be self isolating, not being out and about either with or without a mask.

The masks as people are wearing them now without eye protection from all my current understanding would offer little confidence you are being protected. Like locking the front door and leaving the windows open to keep the burglars out.

If you could point me to the studies that scientifically prove the wearing of face masks (in the guise we currently see them) offer extra protection under social distancing conditions then I will gladly investigate. If this evidence was strong the govt would have surely imposed this as mandatory.Scientists are disagreeing with each other but the non experts on here know it all and have the gall to tell others who disagree that they are idiots.

Watch as the 'science' changes and masks are advised to be worn in packed public places once restrictions are lifted.

The notion that all these Asians are wearing masks by coincidence and against the current 'science' is ridiculous. They are obviously being advised and/or told to wear them.

The notion that coughing and sneezing into your elbow is more beneficial than wearing a mask is ridiculous.

The advice to protect against the secondary means of spread by washing your hands 10 times a day, but take no precautions against the primary means of spread other than cough into your elbow and keep distance even though it's almost impossible to keep distance from every person all the time eg while at the supermarket, makes no sense. Even if you have a n95 or n99 mask, which are effective, they don't advise you to wear one. Makes no sense.

There's a reason for all of this - lack of widespread availability in the West and panic. They can't advise to wear masks if there aren't enough for everyone because everyone will panic and blame the politicians. Politically influenced 'science' and advice not based on best practice or science at all.

As I said, the 'science' around masks will change once they are available and before lockdown is released.

For asymptomatics to be good spreaders of the virus in general (as has been widely reported) it can only really be via the simple, obvious route imo - person A breathes out and person B nearby breathes in

I don't know whether a simple low-grade mask would do anything to stop you breathing in or breathing out the virus.  I suppose a simple test would be to wear a mask in cold weather and see if you can still see your breath

Public transport and supermarkets won't be packed after lockdown either, it will be a gradual release. But we will be told either to wear masks or that they are beneficial.

The point I am making is a simple one. We were given advice based on availability of masks and told it was based on science when it wasn't - it was based on availability of masks. The Asians weren't given the same advice. And when availability changes over here so will the 'science'. We were given poor advice not based on best practice from a health perspective.

It alone won't be the end of any government, the whole of the West was in the same position - not in a position to provide masks to everyone because of a supply shortage at the time. Advice based more on politics, lack of availability and avoiding panic than science.

You can understand why it was given in those circumstances. I just don't like having my intelligence insulted by them telling me it's based on 'science', when it clearly isn't based on science alone or possibly at all, and that we should frantically protect against the secondary means of spread but not so much against the primary means of spread. If there was the same widespread shortage of soap and sanitiser they wouldn't have told us to wash our hands as much either.

My prediction is that the scientific consensus will change, just as we talk about releasing lockdown, to 'they are beneficial and should be worn'. And that will be more intelligence insulting nonsense. I may be wrong of course, time will tell.

I'd not "venture" into a supermarket if necessary but one needs to eat to stay alive and be sane. Of course the risk at supermarket is greater than in open space given the monkeys that shop there; online shopping is not an option either given the priority if for the elderly and infirm.

The health experts were advocating a 2m distancing advice as sufficient, and lately this has been amended to being the minimum. Even a half-wit like myself knew 2m was less than one could spit. And, a deadly virus was more energetic than that.

Use the guideline issued by government health experts, but multiply that by at twice.

I was wearing my face mask in March, a cheap thing that will fall apart soon so I need to hunt for scarf or have a go at a DIY job.

First of all it was make sure you wash your hands
Then we had no hugs, touching or hand shakes
Then we got sneeze or cough into the elbow
Then we got keep apart two metres
Then we got only go outside up to 2 kilometres
Then we got gards on street corners....

Facemasks just another step on the ladder ?

The reason I wore a facemask after cheltenham was two fold. On my way to cheltenham an oriental lady was wiping down her seat and armrests before she took her place on the plane. Then at baggage pick up there were about six chinese looking people all wearing facemasks , picking up and wiping down there bags. A lightbulb moment !


.....and it took you thick ejits 3 months to cop on
