why don't we only wear nose masks?

"Mucus-producing goblet cells and ciliated cells in the nose had the highest levels of both these [genes], of all cells in the airways," first author Waradon Sungnak from the Wellcome Sanger Institute said in a statement. "This makes these cells the most likely initial infection route for the virus."

Is there such a thing as a nose mask?

I think coughing spreads the virus, and some people want masks to limit the dangers of coughing.

@Pamela Rosa,

Because the nasal cavity and the mouth cavity are connected. Have you never hawked up a loogie?

I recall back in grammar school, the annual school fair always had a plentiful supply of them. They were hand knit or crocheted and sold as 'nose warmers', to keep noses from freezing or dribbling snot during the cold winter months.


Never saw anybody actually buy or wear one.

Since the eyes also get mucousy and are interconnected with the ears, I believe that the Covid-19 solution might be the helmet part of medieval armour...with a breathable liner, or course.

Nose Knickers.

I believe that's the proper term for them.

@Pamela Rosa,
'ENT' (Ear, nose & throat) = ALL connected highways.

So are eyes (Tearducts)

Have a lovely Day

When I was in the army, a guy's girlfriend sent him a knitted 'nose warmer'. All I can say is she must have remembered his nose as being really, really long.

@roger,
Maybe she was confusing it with another body part...

@roger,
Yours, Roger - And the 2 prior posts - Are why A2k is an awful entrypoint for outsiders.

You ALWAYS derail threads - As a passion.

You are Not funny.

Without your 'pointless, uninformative' posts - A2k... might well be the 'Atlantis' of internet conjoinity

Ignored Forever.

Have a lovely Day
