This is like the doctors that still smoke... like, they know better, but they still just kinda... Fark it.

Oh, except this can spread to others and kill them.

So, like smoking asbestos wrapped cigars, i guess...

I live in Melbourne, Australia. We have just lived though months of lockdown, while the rest of the country was relatively free to do as they wished. It was- it continues to be hard... Difficult in ways I never anticipated, and will have repercussions we feel for ages.

But it stopped the spread. Fewer people got sick, lives were saved. They is hope that the sacrifice was worth it.

It's staggering to me that other countries are failing to even try...

Good test cases if they die. My dad is a 70+ year Vietnam vet, had to endure argent orange.  Every day of his life might be his last. Any A-hole not wearing a mask or think this is not real well F-You.

I think it speaks more for the government's inability to protect its people. It's economically infeasible for the US govt to sustain its population, even a small percentage, for several months.

And yet, no one has called them out on it...yet.

I went to the ophthalmologist yesterday.  Five nurses/technicians were not wearing masks.

Covid is surging here in Michigan, so there is no excuse for this behavior.

This kind of shows how egocentric Americans are, the story is about the United Kingdom and people make it all about the US.

Stop it! It's more important to bastardize our own country due to our national guilt than actually read an article and provide some sort of original rational thought.
