Adding insult to injury

I was just on sofirnlight.com and they are selling N95 face mask and forehead thermometers.

It sort of upset me but everyone has an opinion . That’s just mine

Just about every Chinese seller has them listed, so they can be a 1 stop shop of sorts. We are not the only country that is going thru this, and also buys their flashlights. Some sites are offering a free box of masks and/or hand sanitizer with a $50+ order.
Welcome to the new norm.

Sounds good to me. Nice of them to be able to supply us emergency supplies like this. Especially when they aren’t available here at stores or through Amazon.

Where do you think they’re getting theirs from?

Free with a purchase I can understand .

This is akin to punching someone in the nose and then selling them a box of tissues to stop the bleeding with.

I’m guessing that it is the perspective of where the virus originated from, now also selling PPE stuff to ward it off.

That's not the most conscious way to see this. I understand this pandemic may be seen as “coming from China” to certain people, but that is a slanted and polarized way to see it. The actual instigator forces are non-physical, and they do what they can do just because of humanity's own weaknesses within their own minds and bodies. Those who deny this, namely those who do it in a jibing way, only add more fuel to the fire as it is a way of serving evil, even if it is understandable because of their unawareness and/or lack of spiritual development. There's a lot more “stuff” involved in this.

Better focus on reinforcing and helping ourselves and the planet, which in itself is conscious as everything else, rather than being divisive and quarrelsome. Asking your higher power to be impervious to Covid-19/coronavirus is a wise thing for those of you who still didn't do it, better late than never.

In the meantime, I'll be asking my higher power for this to end as best as possible for our highest good, while walking the streets without mask and without fear.

For months China broadcast the danger to the world and demonstrated the proper way to contain and combat the virus while the west did nothing.

Now, when the only effective measures are exactly what China did (and was criticized for) somehow it becomes their fault despite months of inaction from the countries currently afflicted?

I really have been struggling with the train of thought of those expressing this viewpoint lately.

Mistakes have been made all over the place. Now is not the time for finger-pointing – now is the time for coming together (metaphorically), socially distancing, and helping stop this as soon as we can.

Coming together would be Sofirn trying to help their customers , not make more money from them .

Just my opinion , no need to get you panties in a wad .

If you want a face mask during these times, your’e going to have to pay for it, period.

Sofirn is offering customers another resource to get some, for a price just like anywhere else. Sofirn is in no way obligated to give out free face masks. No retailers/sellers are.

I am sorry that I cant wrap my mind around why the OP is upset that Sofirn is offering flashaholics an opportunity to purchase face masks for their protection. I guess OP can be mad at the thousands of retailers that sold/sell face masks, so customers can protect themselves.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

OMG!!!!

It’s $27 for a box of ten quantity. You get 10 face masks for $27 = $2.70 per mask.

And where does it say you can only wear one for twenty minutes?

Well, a couple thoughts here;

If you hook up with a woman and she gives you VD, you know deep down she didn’t just invent it herself but rather was given “The gift that keeps on giving” by someone else, But you probably are not going to date her like ever again.
Soo, I totally get maybe not wanting to support the country that passed on the love to the rest of the world at least for the foreseeable future.

Also as slow as stuff arrives from Cheeena the virus may well be past us by the time you get the masks.

Haven’t ordered anything from them since the SHTF and will not for quite some time. Suddenly a new flashlight is not on any list of wants.
JMHO

That’s for a 10-pack, and they last a lot longer than 20 mins. A P2 (N95) mask is good for up to 12 hours of use.

dust environment and infectious environment are very different things,
not to mention n95 protect against particles larger than 0.3 micron, coronavirus particles are 0.1 micron.
bacteria size is 0.3-120microns, dust even larger. n-xxx type masks are not made to protect against viruses

N90 is equivalent to P1, N95 to P2, etc – as the ratings go up, so does the filtration ability.

https://www.xamax.co.uk/blog/how-to-pick-a-dust-mask-rating-p1-vs-p2-vs-...

The masks being sold here are P1, so less effective than P2 – I can only assume that they’d last a similar time though. I’ve worn a P2 on a fireground for >8 hours with no problems.

rating only shows how many percent of particles it filters out, 90, 95… particles size are the same for each ratings.
