I am not sure what study is presently being used by Team X to beat Team S over the head with, but from this this Nature article (link), I followed the trail to this (link), which in turn means you have to click on a download link to see the paper. Looks like it needs peer review, so, am sure there will be discussion about that angle as well.

By my seat of the pants observations of real life, it seems to me that if masks didn't help reduce transmission of aerosol droplets which may contain germs, they wouldn't be used during any routine surgery. Whether or not this observation applies to viral pandemics, yeah, I don't know 100% if I can say, but for me any increase above 0 % with minimal cost to me sounds worthwhile.

PS

Another Nature article with links to other pro mask studies, just in case the above is not what is being talked about.

How can you say the cost is minimal, when you're doing something that's not solely for your benefit without the entire rest of the world dropping to their knees, thanking you for your excellence, slobbing your knob, and begging you not to go to Galt's Gulch?

It's all so communist and totalitarian.

It is sort of the same reason I try to just shut up about my property taxes going to help pay for public schools when I don't have any kids. For the USA to get ahead, helping kids get some smarts activated (by attending and learning something in school) is a long term investment than might help me out in the long run.

In the short term, it keeps more of them out of the line-up where they can out-compete me with their youthful recovery rates.

OBSF is NOT supposed to be have a "line-up" where competing with other people happens.

Your closest interaction is supposed to be wistfully looking at someone in a wave valley a block or three away while a mountain is about to flatten you, or vice versa.

I got my boost yesterday at the local pharmacy. No wait. I felt sick last night as I slept but maybe it was a dream because I woke up fine. Went for a surf this morning. Small longboard waves, sunny, super clear water. Very enjoyable. Life goes on. No big thing...

Agree 100% with this idealized version of the world.

However my ability to realize it is going away with each passing year when it is in such an idealized state. Look, only a few out (click to expand):

You're a piece of work, aren't you?
Here’s two specific to covid but there is decades worth of data about masks and respiratory viruses showing no proof of efficacy (at best).

They are used during surgery to block bacteria not viruses.

Bacteria particles much much bigger.
