  1. This is not a viral pandemic. Buddha is the enlightened one, the one who has real wisdom. who is in the power of the great Chiliocosm, the Saha world (the earth) is just a very very small one in it. In order to save the earth, to save humanity, he has revealed his supernatural powers in this pandemic disaster. In the Nirvana Sutra, Buddha said that he treats all beings from the six realms as Rahula – the son of Sakyamuni Buddha. This means that Buddha treats every being as if he is his only son; it means that Buddha wants only to protect, not harm, humanity. As to those people infected by this virus, it is because they have thought and done too much evil, so of course they will have this karma. Buddha first provides medical support and then he teaches them the ultimate Dharma to help them to remain in their pure and enlightened heart. However, the people who don’t understand, go on insisting that this is a pandemic.

  2. I understand that the WHO needs to take into account PPE availablilty in different regions. I would like to know, though: Does a homemade fabric mask constructed within the WHO guidelines protect the one wearing the mask better than a surgical mask? Also, does a homemade fabric mask constructed within the WHO guidelines protect those around the one wearing the mask better than a surgical mask?

  3. This topic has been plagued by misinformation and confusing terminology since February! This video makes no mention of another type of medical mask, the N95 "respirator." These "respirators" protect the wearer by filtering airborne particles from their inhaled air. Other forms of masks, whether medical/disposable or cloth, provide some protection against droplets, but primarily serve to protect others from the exhaled breath of the wearer.

  4. We computer science and engineering students developed a mask detection system using deep learning.Our application helps in the fight against COVID-19 by making the world a safer and secure place. Using a camera our application can detect a person who doesn’t wear a mask. This system detects a person with a mask and also it can detect a person without a mask. If MASKID finds a person wearing a face mask properly, it allows the person to enter into the corresponding premises by saying 'PROCEED'. If not, that is, if the person is not wearing a mask, an alert sound will be generated telling PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK.
    Our application strictly follows the concept of social distancing. As a result, whenever more than one face appears in the screen, MASKID creates an alert sound saying “MORE THAN ONE FACE”. MASKID is a small contribution by us towards the fight against Corona Virus. Hoping that our MASKID will act as a barrier in front of the deadly virus.

  5. Why all the oppressive Islamic propaganda in this video and your mask guidance posters? Who's behind the World Health Organization? Why did you lie for China and tweet on January 14th, 2020 that SARS2-COVID19 cannot be spread human to human?!

  6. STOP BEING SHEEP – TAKE OF THE MASKS, YOU ALL HAVE BEAUTIFUL WONDERFUL FACES! GOD DID NOT CREATE YOU TO HIDE THEM, HE CREATED YOU TO SHOW THEM, SO THAT EVERYONE COULD ADORE THEM! FORGET who, cdc, and everyone who tells you to wear masks, take them off, breath freely!

  7. But fabric masks have literally zero effectiveness?
    Also didn't the WHO say recently that asymptomatic transmission is incredibly rare?
    So which is it?

  8. The satanic WHO needs people to believe this virus exists – it doesn't, .. no study has been able to prove it exist's..it's never even been isolated. .. Health Canada just released this info 2 days ago. It's 5G radiation that is killing people and masks cannot stop it. This is the WHO's Agenda 21 we're living out and they want to kill off 95% of us.. the WHO is not for the people. ..they are for satan. There is no such thing as a virus that exists or can travel outside on person to another… Remember Kids this is the pharmaceutical industry .. the end result is always a vaccine in that industry = where if you study biology you know damn well no vaccine can access the adaptive immune system .. ever, so no vaccines don't work and no virus's cannot leave someones body and be contagious… But Radiation {5g} activates virus's!

  9. people who have covid symptoms should not wear surgical masks!!! they should be isolating (whats the point of wearing mask in isolation????) – that should be your advice.

    also a logical conclusion from your advice that people who do not have symptoms do not need a surgical mask is that they are not contagious – so what do they need any masks/face coverings for????? to breath in any pathogens caught and multiplying on a moist and wet face coverings?

    watching further – those over 60 and with underlying conditions need masks as well?? as if for protection? but we are told that us wearing mask might protect others from our coughs and sneezes – following your logic all over 60's and with conditions automatically cough and sneeze as matter of fact and we need protection from them…….!!???
    I am not a medic, some of you might be, but you still seem to need urgently someone who can check your messages for logical inconsistencies!!!!
    ps. or are you counting on us all being stupid 😉

  10. Why would you say that in the end? If I follow the local authorities, then I wouldn't be able to follow yours. The national committee for disease is now recommending the usage of masks everywhere, even when alone and/or outside. They are saying that they got those recommendations from the WHO. I am talking about the government of Macedonia.
