The UK general public has not been wearing masks until this past Friday, 2020Jul23.
Yet covid-19 deaths have been declining since April. And just to re-iterate, nobody has been wearing a mask during at all of this year……
Total deaths are below the 5yr average these past few weeks………
At the end of June, I laid out an alternative approach, a, IMHO, more sensible approach than the lockdown.
So why is the UK introducing masks at this late stage?
There is no logic. The numbers state that 87% of the population is unaffected by covid-19.
I can only offer this thought.
The UK government (amongst others) could be adopting the military approach to group dynamics. You get the group doing pointless and stupid things, over and over again, until the group will do anything the instant they are told to. When told to jump, the only question is “how high”.
So what stupid and pointless thing has your government forced you to do recently?
Wear a mask?
Disrupt or curtail your career plans?
Forced you to stay in foreign lands?
Let me know. Inquiring minds, etc….
