Masks: What's China hiding?

What has an #osteopathic #clinic in #Leicester got to do with #masks and #China?

#Treating #back and #spinal #pain for my #Leicester #patients is more than just about #sports #injuries. I still have to keep my patients safe and do my part in reducing the spread of #Covid19.


should the public wear #masks?

· Should #healthcare workers wear #masks, considering the #death rates amongst them?

· If so - which #masks?

· I don't know about you, but I've certainly been hearing confused messages!

· This is not a political message or specific #healthcare #advice. Just my thoughts!

· This is one research paper that came out of #China in 2012, published in English, and available as free, open source access.

· I have attached it for all to read. It's well written, insightful and gave us a model to work to over 7 years ago!

In summary

· They modelled the spread of #viral particles produced from #coughing


· They gave solutions: where to place air inlets and outlets so that viral particles can be removed. We could have used these models in our building designs


· They modelled the concepts of wearing properly fitted #masks verses the #wearing of unfitted #masks - and showed that it still significantly reduces #viral spreads.


· They specifically mentioned #healthcare #workers in #hospital settings: telling us that it's effective for them to wear #masks, and that it backs up #WHO #recommendations.


· AND They were open about the limitations of their study


· I hope going into the future we'll still build close ties to #China. Because from a #healthcare standpoint I read their #research #papers, it's outstandingly high quality, I learn heaps, and adopt it into my #practice with my #patients.


All I'm saying is - in the area I work in - #China is a model example of exemplary research and propagation of knowledge. So; #China - a sincere message to you, please keep publishing and distributing your knowledge. Without it - me and my patients will be so much more the poorer.
