Wearing a mask makes people safe, so why won't we do it?
WEAR. A. MASK.
Wearing a mask keeps others safe during a pandemic, such as the one that we happen to be experiencing right now.
So why do just 38 percent of the United Kingdom say that they are already wearing face masks? Why are 62 percent of us not doing it? Of course, personal responsibility comes into it, but the blame also lies elsewhere.
From day one, the government's indecision over coronavirus has been staggering. Herd immunity, delayed lockdowns, Dominic Cummings, Barnard Castle, blurry eyesight - the entire plan has been a mess.
Anti-mask protesters are clearly wrong, but when government ministers cannot agree on what the advice is, is anyone surprised?
Only 38% of Brits are already wearing face masks, and some of them aren’t even doing that properly.
Throw government indecision and anti-mask protests into the equation, and you have to say, we are royally fucking this up. pic.twitter.com/KbyDnbfAcw
