It’s amazing that people are still being chided for taking steps to protect themselves from the coronavirus, when anyone with eyes can see that the spread of the disease is fast overwhelming authorities’ ability to deal with it.
Regular people are being told not only that they don’t need masks, but that “masks don’t work”.
Hospital workers are dangerously short on PPE and critical equipment like respirators.
Nurses who have brought in their own masks to wear have been threatened with getting fired for doing so.
Why are we fighting smart prudent steps when we all share the common goal of minimizing covid-19’s impact on society?
Why are we suppressing one of the single simplest, cheapest and most effective tactics we have in the war against this pandemic? We should be encouraging EVERYONE to wear a mask, of nearly any type.
A citizen DIY movement, not unlike the WW2 victory gardens, could and should be promoted, making millions of masks in short order for us all to wear — just as they’re doing in the Czech Republic with the #Masks4All movement:
Seriously, if we all wear masks, wash our hands frequently and don’t touch our faces, our odds of making through this epidemic skyrocket.
It’s an easy goal that’s right in our grasp. It shouldn’t be this hard…
