  1. This is America you mean we don’t have the might to make enough protective masks for everyone in the United States that needs them? come on we spend 100 billion dollars on one jet fighter & we can’t make enough paper masks in America ? you got to be kidding me politicians you crooks are full of B$.

  2. Which one give hand to reduce growth of hospital patients on Covid 19? A face Mask or a Ventilator ? Which one is cheaper and cost effective and easier to access ? Don’t be stupid of insisting your West Culture!!! Follow the results and Culture from Wise Asians!!! Save many life and reduce work loads on nurse and doctors! Their problem is they avoid public use it because they don’t find the supply…Slow response like Donald Trump and Boris Johnson !!! PK !!!

  3. No. Masks are for symptomatic or, ill people, to protect healthy people from them. Non viral masks offer a false sense of protection. Tissues just as affective. Viral droplets infect via hands, eyes, mouth, skin, surfaces. Masks, gloves, have to be replaced each use. Anti-viral medical masks are for medical personnel.

  4. people thought wearing a mask was a bit of "overreacting’" but being careful is better than an arrogant attitude that since they don’t have the sickness they don’t have to wear it – Americans should change their view of wearing masks – it shouldn’t be viewed as only sick people wearing it, but as a public manner to protect themselves and others

  5. I’ve been saying this for weeks. Of course everyone should wear masks when in proximity to others in public. Yes, of course they provide benefit. But because there is insufficient supply, officials have been downplaying the benefits – some outright lying about them. Now they are saying people should wear homemade masks – which are obviously less effective. Again due to shortages. You have to be stupid not to realize this. How can they recommend any sort of mask, but not recommend that people who do have proper masks use them? The direction is to wear homemade masks instead. Crazy.

    Wearing masks will have to be parts of the process to restart the economy while still controlling the spread of the virus. Once supplies stabilize to the point where people can be provided with a supply of masks, officials will all of a sudden recommend them.

  6. You get beaten up for wearing mask in public in North America. Wearing mask is interpreted as being sick. This is so messed up in thinking like this. They said masks are only effective on health care workers and not on the public which makes no sense at all.

  7. Its so obvious except for those imbeciles at WHO and ignorant imbeciles jerks worldwide..now its too late

  8. Stop saying wearing masks is not American culture. Its not about culture its all about your safety and other people’s safety

  9. First of all, according to the numbers. There is no, "pandemic". The numbers of sick, donot warrant pandemic status.

  10. GOOD QUALITY FILTER MASK – Make of safety medical standard material.
    SAY GOODBYE TO DUST – When working outside,our face masks filter out allergens that can aggregate airway disease
    BREATHE WELL – Breathable design allergy mask, 3-ply disposable face mask, you can still carefree breathing.Each mask is individually package
    SOFT AND COMFORTABLE – They are soft and comfortable ear hook masks, not easy to drop, no need to adjust it when you work
    GREAT VALUE – Big value face mask, Suitable for people: Cleaner, Builder, Farmer, Doctor, Student, Nurse. contact Odelette Hétu

  11. In US, there were so many discrimination on Asian for wearing a mask, assuming all everyone who wear mask are sick. And now? ? ? I meant? I understand there is cultural difference, but let use logic to solve things.

  12. This time not to discrimination…but …really American make me disappointed why they dont wearing mask…too late ..??? RIP

  13. On one hand, Gov’t knows that masks are in short supply so if they told public to wear them everyone would literally go hunting for it causing crimes, and hospitals wouldn’t get their hands on them. On the other hand, Gov’t is straight up lying to you. Be smart and think for yourself because Uncle Sam is busy caring for the forest rather than a tree.

  14. Is a must ! If not Why then nurse and doct wear it when they treat covid person…wear it guys..stay safe

  15. We are on our own. Congratulations to all of you this is the system we have created. Maybe you should vote differently

  16. STAY HOME. You won’t need a mask. Everyone cover your coughs/sneezes & wash your hands. You obstruct transmission. Stand 6 feet away from any cough/sneeze projectile. ASYMPTOMATICS: do NOT kiss, share drinks, or SHARE SPIT. Virus needs to exit your body & enter another for infection. Disease transmission 101.

  17. American need wear masks in January but they stupid..its too late. Spreading all news York..too late for America stupid

  18. For the love of god WEAR MASKS so no one can BREATHE on each other. How is this need to be taught to so much low intelligent people

  19. POOR MANAGEMENT IS THE CURRENT SIYUATION OF US AND UK!!! Which one give hand to reduce growth of hospital patients on Covid 19? A face Mask or a Ventilator ? Which one is cheaper and cost effective and easier to access ? Don’t be stupid of insisting your West Culture!!! Follow the results and Culture from Wise Asians!!! Save many life and reduce work loads on nurse and doctors! Their problem is they avoid public use it because they don’t find the supply…Slow response like Donald Trump and Boris Johnson !!! PK !!! ITS DOUBLE FAIL SAFE PROTECTION UNDER CURRENT NEW VIRUS ATTACK SITUATION…DONT BE STUBBORN !!!
