RE: Which Mask is Better to Protect Covid-19 Virus

Don't think so, or if they do not large enough to have any impact.  They are tiny, smaller than a grain of rice, but they can be a pest if they get indoors.

Remember going to the butterfly farm just outside Edinburgh, they have IIRC leaf cutter ants, and one rather silly gent thought oooh ants, tried to touch one and got rather  nasty chomp, he pulled his finger back rather sharply, have seen fire ants in action, they look particularly nasty little buggers.

Tank you very much!

Fire ants are nasty.  Not as nasty as that tiny bugger COVID though.

Very true, easy to see and kill fire ants, if you have the cojones to do so.

COVID, not so easy.  Never thought I would see anything like this in my lifetime, how wrong can you be!

Tank you very much!

Sort of.  Like COVID, fire ants just keep coming back.

We are rather fortunate from that respect in the UK, not really any nasty species of insect, snake etc, we have the adder in Scotland, but they are very rare, elusive and not deadly unless allergic.

Spiders, only really house spiders, they are harmless. Although my other half is terrified off them. 

You have your fair share of nasty species in the US, very unwelcome guests 😳

Tank you very much!

That is pretty lucky.  In the US, we have lots of venomous creatures.  We not as bad as New Zealand, Tasmania, or Australia.

Yip, but we don't really have the climate for it,

A friend of mine was traveling around Australia in a camper van years ago with his partner, left the window open on on hot night and woke to find huge tarantula winking at them about 6 inches from his face.

Needed to form a very precarious assault on the beggar.

Sod that for a game if toy soldiers.

 

Tank you very much!

Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately into a closed bin and wash your hands. By following good 'respiratory hygiene', you protect the people around you from viruses, which cause colds, flu and COVID-19.

There is not a log of evidence behind the old respiratory hygiene for flu and cold season.  We have a year of data to back the mask.

LOL

 

"Tasmania or Australia".  That gave me a good chuckle.  Tasmania is part of Australia just like Hawaii and Alaska are part of the USA. 

 

As for NZ, they don't have any snakes, scorpions or venomous insects. They only have one native venomous spider and it's so rare, it is almost never seen and isn't actually all that venomous anyway.  They do have red back and white tailed spiders that are introduced pests from Australia,  but whilst both are nasty, they're not lethal. 

 

Sometimes I think other countries think it's like Jurassic Park over here. 😆

Not tarantulas here in Australia. Was most likely a huntsman - they get up to about 6" across. Completely harmless and non-aggressive. 

 

Most people welcome them in their homes as they keep pest insects like cockroaches under control. 

 

That said, I've had my fair share of frights from huntsmans. Waking up to the sensation of one crawling over your head is....ahh...unpleasant!  😲

Yeah, that looks like the fella he described.   Bright Green, large and winking at him, so close he could have gave it a kiss.

Being from Scotland, and since the spiders we have over here are about 1" across max you can imagine the fright he got.

 

Tank you very much!

Try to get a cloth face mask with at least three layers of fabric. The more layers, the better protection it will provide from COVID-19. There’s also some evidence that masks made by layering different types of materials (such as cotton and polyester) on top of one another are more effective at blocking droplets than those made with just a single type of fiber.
