  1. Super. Where the hell are we supposed to buy them then?

  2. And where tf are people supposed to get masks?

  3. That’s not so cut and dry. The masks need to be maintained and you need to treat them as contaminated after use or when touching them. That means washing or baking them or using disposable. If someone coughs on you such that the masked helped, then you go wash your hands to eat, then take the mask off to eat, well now it’s on your hands again. If you touch contaminated surfaces and touch the mask. Then it’s better than touching your face directly but now the mask is contaminated. And if you don’t properly take care of the mask and keep using it, then it becomes another source of disease. The mask also doesn’t prevent the a virus from traveling through it. Just blocks the spittle that can carry it. And you say “well duh, just take care of it”. But we are dealing with a population that couldn’t comprehend the issue with reusable grocery bags and elected people to ban their use. Which they are now reverting due to this virus being more obviously problematic. And from the nasty ass reusable bags I’ve seen, were not maintained well. And I’d bake or wash a new mask right out of the box before using it.

  4. Sure, show me where the fuck to get one.

  5. The government is so full of crap! Two months ago was a warning [HongKongers got it right! ](https://youtu.be/z7N1SEqmR-Y)

  6. It is possible to make a good enough mask in 2 seconds. https://youtu.be/m8xVsPSSYsA
