Re: Coronavirus

I post here because I think it is the most relevant discussion.

I wonder if anyone else has practical problems while wearing face masks? I find them very irritating and difficult to breath while wearing them. I wear them to comply with the laws.

I cannot understand the reason for people who wear them while driving alone in cars?

Re: Coronavirus

people in Asia are wearing masks all the time when they are sick or when others are sick.
Same with Drs and medical workers worldwide.

No one complains about serious breathing issues etc maybe changing the maker of masks solves the issue

I would be ever so pleased if the bickering could be confined to just one thread. Or even better, PMs (yes, I know, but I do have to suggest that). Less work for me to do, more time to think up new Imaginary Conversations.... Oh, wait a minute- maybe that's the plan!  ajb007/amazed

booo-hoo  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

Questioning pseudo-complaints by inserting some real life observations together with a wellversed advise is socialist doctrine

I am making a legitimate post here. I do not expect to have my experiences with a mask called a  'pseudo-complaint'.

Perhaps I should adopt the strategy of being 'offended' and also demanding an apology?

No, I leave that to others.

I have issues of breathing wearing a mask. The masks I use are the same as every one else uses. The paper ones and the fabric ones which I wear at my duties at work but there may be some truth in that better quality masks may help.

I struggle to believe that of all the people in Asia who wear masks there are none who suffer from similar problems?

The biggest problem I have with a mask is if the weather is a bit wet and miserable it makes my glasses steam up!!

The people you see in cars may be mini cab drivers. I see the drivers from my local firm wearing masks all the time whether they have passengers or not. It's probably easier to leave them on if you've just dropped a passenger off then going straight to pick up another one.

Re: Coronavirus

This could be that case, and one that I had not considered. I have not noticed any taxi marking on the cars though, they appear to be all private cars.
I do not wear glasses but have been told that same thing from other people. I get like a short of breath sensation. I do not know if this is is a physical thing or (I do not know the words in English) a in the mind reaction? What ever it is I find the masks very irritating.

I wonder if indeed there are any other than the usual type of mask which might help?

The word is psychological. It may well be that because it is such an alien thing for us to do. I still find it odd to look around me and everyone is wearing a mask.


You should try a few different ones because people do seem to have a preference. My dad has problems with his vision, looking downwards, and the paper masks really cause him issues but the fabric masks not so much. I have no idea why.

Some give me spots, some give me headaches and some are just uncomfortable. I prefer the paper masks but I have a couple of fabric ones too.

Also, it sounds a bit silly, but the size of your head can have an affect in regards to how they fit and comfort.


When I do any washing and I'm going through pockets, it was always tissues that were the bane of my life. Now it's masks!!

Re: Coronavirus

in my experience facemasks by Uniqlo work best.

But in Joshua‘s case when working with and for elderly people, a FFP2 or higher may be required. And those are harder to breathe.
Medical staff are wearing FFP2 and higher for longer periods during the day.

My hubby does driver training for the emergency services and he wears an N95 (same as a FFP2 I think). Not the most comfortable but the safest. Anyone working as a carer or care home environment should be wearing those.

Sadly, it doesn't look like the band will be getting back together. Well, perhaps for a festival gig or the like.

Well, in addition to my shades fogging up; none. But then again, I sometimes go jogging wearing a gas mask, just keep up to date in my long-gone-irrelevant training and past job description.
