Masks. Save. Lives. Do not wait for the recommendations from your government or the WHO.
Wear. A. Mask. You have only to compare the epidemics numbers for Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia who have been dealing with the epidemic full on for two months with the recent explosion of cases in less than one month in the U.S., Italy, Spain, France, Germany, UK (and several other countries).
What is a major difference between the two groups?
It is common practice in Asia for EVERYBODY to wear a mask.
If you don't have masks, make some.
Together we can fight this.
