And if the suggestion is we all should wear a mask, pray tell where you can find them?

That 4th category can't count in those numbers, because that 4th category is an unknown factor. Estimates of that number can be 10x documented cases. It could be 500x documented cases. It could be half the amount of documented cases. Estimates mean zilch when it comes to unknown factors.

Then - there are the people who are sick - but don't have symptoms YET. That's a whole other ball of wax and again - they would not be counted in the current "what's the death rate?" query.
The research, published in the medical journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases, estimated that about 0.66% of those infected with the virus will die. That coronavirus death rate, which is lower than earlier estimates, takes into account potentially milder cases that often go undiagnosed

Novel coronavirus death rate is lower than previously reported, study says, but it's still deadlier than seasonal flu - CNN

Doctors and nurses are still getting sick because there are not enough masks so they have to wear the same mask over and over, thereby increasing the risk of contamination.

Fourth category? If you have no symptoms, do not get sick and are never diagnosed, how can you estimate how many there are? Not refuting the fact that they exist but no one has any idea how many there could be unless they tested everyone in the country. Not a good use of resources when our economy is tanking and medical necessity if paramount.

Everyone is a expert- but your number of .5 is what the scientists who are on the ball are using because it takes into account all the factors to come to a realistic percentage.
Thanks

Perhaps they are taking them off sometime during their shift while virus still in the air?

Perhaps they are saying that because the medical community is having problems getting them?

Can you spray a used mask with lysol or other sterilizer and let it dry to reuse/conserve?

They are closer than 6 feet and are usually touching the patient along with pillows, blankets and other items that have been in contact with the patient. Masks help, but are not to be used instead of social distancing. Medical professionals of course cannot social distance when caring for a patient.

If you're asking about home made masks, they can be washed in hot water.

Wouldn’t something wet stick to cloth and get caught?
