Will 2020 to be recorded in history of finding the normal use in society of wearing masks? Or in other words, will masks ever become obsolete when a cure or vaccine is found?

Reading out of curiosity about the reasons and needs for testing for either virus or antibodies testing and the potential risks of reoccurrence for people or recovered from this or any future virus, I wonder if wearing a mask is going to be a permanent affair in our generation and future generations.

The Purpose of this Post

Is to relate ancient wisdom to our contemporary pandemic experience and provide information on both the subjects of masks and testing.

King Solomon – Proverbs Chapter Three

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
14 for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways,
    and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
    those who hold her fast will be blessed.

What’s My Point?

In a previous post on the subject of masks, I stated that because of my personal health problems that wearing an N95 mask made it difficult to breath normally.

My wife made me a face mask using a silk tie with cotton backing which is hopefully rated the same effectiveness as the coveted N95 masks. While easier to breath, the homemade mask can be reused after washing according to the study test results.

I have been curious about the first type of testing, or the practical use of mass testing to determine if a person has coronavirus. For example, if after being tested and finding out they are not infected at 9:00 AM,  and then become infected by someone at 10:00 AM.

After reading about testing for antibodies testing to find out if you have had the virus, I find there is no data or guarantee that a person will not again become infected with a same or new strain of the virus.

In other words, even if an antidote and a vaccine is discovered similar to past flus, the USA has been experiencing 60,000 deaths a year from already known medical flus in spite of have curies and vaccines.  

For example, you are like me and have compromised immune systems or other health issues, perhaps we need to consider that we should always use a mask.

Or, in other words, 2020 generation masks are going to be the new social normal in the USA and World.

Or perhaps, the same ancient proverbs verses that were written 3000 years ago and are still applicable in our contemporary times.

Should we wise up and start teaching Wisdom Verses in  both private and public schools to instill the wisdom to be better prepared so as not to repeat the same mistakes as previous generations?
