    Health officials in the canton of Graubünden studying a recent outbreak among staff at a hotel found a worrying trend - all of those who were infected wore plastic face shields, while those who avoided infection wore face masks.

    Several employees of the hotel tested positive along with a guest.

    Rudolf Leuthold, head of the cantonal health department in Graubünden, said the face shields were the common denominator in infections.

    “It has been shown that only those employees who had plastic visors were infected. There was not a single infection among employees with a mask.”

    Well that just makes sense anyway. You’re still breathing other people’s airborne germs, and you’re still breathing out your own.

    Most born idiots don't know it's an aerosol virus and that masks and shields won't do shit, unless you stop breathing.
