Rebuttal Rewrite—612119

Needs a Title

New thesis

Requiring a mandatory Mass program in the United States would have a positive effect on saving human lives while doing great things for the economy. This idea to be true because the less human life  lost the more the faster the economy would be able to open back up since businesses would be able to run since the wide spread of covid-19 wouldn’t occur so fast. It would also help prevent another massive shutdown of the local and Country by wearing such a cheap product over the face.  Keeping Americans healthy should be the primary goal in defeating the virus.

Hand washing

Wearing a mask will give Americans a false sense of security since the mask isn’t even the most important thing in preventing the spread of the virus.  Masks only help  prevent the spread of the virus if it is worn right. Even then, it doesn’t work 100 percent of the time and you may still get infected by the virus.  Some people don’t wear their mask properly and could then further endanger more people. The mask has to be covering the nose and mouth completely with facial hair kept to a minimum and a clean mass to prevent the spread of bacteria that could unintentionally get people sickly from this virus or another one that lives on the mask. Face masks are only a tool like washing your hands as a tool to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus. Having a law of this nature implemented would give Americans a false sense of security, since they would not be as safe as they think. Well that not being the case and then still were able  to get infected by the Coronavirus even when wearing a mask. 

Mask that our supposed to protect us against the covid-19 virus  could in fact still give the chance that the common person gets the infection.  Masks are supposed to be new or are meant to be  thoroughly washed after every use. Some people just keep on using the same one over and over again without cleaning. Not cleaning this could cause you to get sick by other bacteria or even covid 19 and end up defeating the purpose of the mask. Also, touching the outside of the mask during the course of the day helps start the buildup of bacteria close to your face in which bacteria can live on the mass for up to 12 consecutive hours, which then could get you unintentionally sick. These  outcomes beat the purpose of wearing the masks in general.  United States citizens have never worn facial protection to protect them against a virus like other eastern countries such as china. With this fact being the case they may start endangering themselves since they don’t know the proper way to take care of a  mask and end up getting more sickly or end up contracting the virus from their mask. Americans tend to be lazy,lazy, which does not help in a pandemic. Sinclair says pathogens like bacteria and viruses can live on cloth fabric for longer than one may think — up to 8-12 hours.” When you wear these Mass several times a day you’re exposing yourself to potentially harmful bacteria unless you clean the mask or wear a different mask. We need to be able to add other safety measures that will end up being more effective in the end

Wearing masks is creating a false sense of security.  When people wear the face mask, they think they’re completely protecting themselves from the virus since that’s the information that’s being put out there.  While it helps contain the spread of the virus it should be used more as a tool. Instead  a tool to help prevent the Coronavirus rather than the end all be all. Doctors and scientists have concluded that washing your hands is the best way to prevent this virus and not the mask. “If people act as though putting on a face mask gives them like Star Trek level shields…and they’re now invulnerable to their environment, that’s never true,” Spellberg said. Which stresses the importance of the problem we will start to face now.  Since face masks are only a tool to prevent the Corona and wearing them could potentially lower your guard and put you in compromising situations. An example  of someone who wore the mask at all times would be California’s assemblymember Miss Autumn Burke; she believes she got the covid-19 virus while wearing her mask indoors at a meeting. Having cases like these pop-up even though they wore their mask is quite concerning.  How many more like her,  get sick, even though they follow all the rules.  Masks likely aren’t going to keep you a hundred percent safe if you don’t  continue washing your hands .  80% of potential viruses happen to be transmitted to the human body by your hands with this state. More important now we should be stressing and washing, which  is  efficient against the virus. Having this false sense of security also could endanger the elderly, especially since they’re the most vulnerable to this disease. Having them thinking the mask will prevent the virus may affect how they act and make them less careful and carefree when they shouldn’t be because they are still at the risk of getting the disease since not enough is really known about the disease.

During  this pandemic, socially distancing is a term we became comfortable with. we are supposed to be 6 ft apart, while you’re indoors dining or in a store.  Another unintentional consequence from wearing the mask would be people would have to get closer to each other to understand each other, which thus would break the 6ft rule and make it easier for the parties to contract the virus from one another. While this issue is something that is hard to tackle while wearing the mask and is done probably with the best intention still maximizes the risk since you would have taken a closer to hear the person since you can’t. Which comes back to the point before a false sense of security and help spread the virus even though they had good intentions at first. 

Mask mandation would stop the spread of the covid-19 virus  combining  that with the fact it could unintentionally danger some Americans and leave them to contract the covid-19 virus or just another sickness by simply wearing the mask. there seems to be no right answer when it comes to the covid-19 virus.  People need  to be informed on which are the best ways to protect your family and not be misinformed in any way.  Alternatives air purifiers that cleanses the stagnation air every few minutes. Having this tool will provide cleaner air. Having been implemented in some doctors’ offices already is a fair start to a new normal.

    Hey, 612. Thank you for the post and the feedback request.

    First some formatting issues.
    —Please name your posts according to our class protocol. I’ve renamed your post Rebuttal Rewrite—612119. Use the same technique for all your posts to make them easier to find on the blog.
    —In APA style, your sources are identified as References as I have demonstrated with yours at the bottom of the page. Adopt this style to all your own posts as well.
    —When you submitted this post, you didn’t separate your sources with a return. The second and third were combined and neither had a usable link. I have located all three sources, separated the references, and provided working links. Please do this work yourself on the rest of your own posts.
    —You have somehow gotten the impression that your Rebuttal argument should contain an alternate hypothesis as a separate note at the top of the page. As described in the assignment post, identified as My Worthy Opponent Is Wrong, the technique of the Rebuttal argument is to FIND and QUOTE or paraphrase a reputable “opponent” whose position on your topic MUST be refuted before you can convince skeptical readers. Present that position AS SOMEONE ELSE’S, attribute it as THEIRS, and then refute it. Re-read the assignment if that’s unclear.

    From your version of the assignment, we can’t tell which of the positions you personally endorse.

    Wearing a mask will give Americans a false sense of security since the mask isn’t even the most important thing in preventing the spread of the virus.

    Readers of your Rebuttal argument should not be in doubt about which is your point of view.

    I’m going to move along to another feedback request, 612. See what you can do to resolve this fundamental problem of your Rebuttal argument first, then feel free to put your post back into Feedback Please for additional interference. I’ll be happy to respond to your requests as long as you ask for specific assistance.
