  1. Wear sunglasses. Checkmate China.

  2. Cameras controlling a population can’t be healthy for the citizen’s mind and soul. Imagine the anxiety.

  3. I didn’t think these were reliable at the best of times.nevermind with masks,but then again its not like their govt gives a fuck about accuracy. Its about setting examples and control and fear.

  4. If you have any sense of mind you realize that even if it can still guess who it is a mask covers half the face. Sounds like it was announced to scare people into thinking that a mask wont help hide your identity. The real question is if the Chinese government believes this as well or is in on the bigger mental conspiracy.

  5. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://qz.com/1803737/chinas-facial-recognition-tech-can-crack-masked-faces-amid-coronavirus/) reduced by 89%. (I’m a bot)
