I saw somewhere on RR that someone made a mask out of lace (someone outside of the US I think) .... would that "go" here.... would certainly make breathing easier.
Are you referring to my post in the Corona virus thread? (I live in Germany).
I can highly recommend fine lace. It looks good and the air can circulate nicely...
The other day I heard about a man who got a bacterial respiratory infection. His doctor said it was from the mask.
I also heard about a woman who sewed a mask out of sheer curtain fabric and got envious looks in this summer heat. We can either use a mask or a scarf for cover. I am now using a fine lace scarf. I also see more and more people with their nose sticking out over their mask.
Since a few weeks we can also go to church service again. The state government urgently recommends that we wear a mask when doing so. We have several doctors among the parishioners, none of whom wears a mask. Of the others there are only two or three.
I can literally count on my fingers the corona deaths since March until now in my county, so few are they. They were old people with previous illnesses. A doctor from my church told me that it is not allowed to say it out loud, but these people would have died of their illnesses and old age anyway.
Another doctor told me in April that in the hospital where he works a whole department for corona cases was set up, but it has been empty since then because there are no cases.
