I thank Steve Kelly for bringing this to our attention.
We can all either read the abstract of the body of the above paper by Pavel S. Blagov, PhD, of Whitman College, or ignore it in total. Hardly any scientific papers are read, with busy people just skimming the abstracts, if that. Blagov’s paper is deeply offensive. He is shaming people of independent mind and moral courage who do not wear face masks or engage in social distancing. How dare he!
