We all wear masks... metaphorically speaking.

It's a better idea to wash your hands and keep away from people and quarantine yourself.

They help, but the news has been lying saying they don't protect against the virus. I'm not sure why you refuse to wear them.

Obviously. But when you need to go out shopping or must work, masks are a good idea.

Hey Post-Wall Olga,

You seem to care a lot about non-human animals, plants and the environment/ecosystem generally. I had actually figured you’d be rooting for this virus to wipe out as many humans as possible in order to protect the environment, or at least keep them paranoid enough to halt their usual harmful activities (Italy and China have seen an amazing decrease in pollution ever since this thing has taken hold of the collective psyche). What is your view on allowing the earth to “shake us off” like a bad case of fleas and overpopulation/human pollution generally?

Heh. Quoting the late great George Carlin, pacman?

With an earthquake in Utah that caused a power outage in Salt Lake City during the virus crisis and a heavy snowstorm on its way over the nation, it really does seem like the planet has dubbed our purpose complete: to create plastic!

I mean he did actually say something like that some time back about the virus in a different thread but it's Jubei and while I think it's stupid to value those things OVER humans, I don't think they're all necessarily like that.

Pretty sure the cdc suggests masks to help prevent spread not to help prevent catching it. So if you care about people around you it's a reason I guess.

This virus kills more men than women. In Italy, the discrepancy is 60-40 percent. Furthermore, this virus, while fatal to thousands, won't actually kill off a significant portion of humanity, just make them miserable. The coronavirus, therefore, won't lead to enough of a decline in population, just an economic stagnation or depression. It's important to contain this one till a more potent virus comes along.

I don't know why you're so hostile, but if you read the article, it says masks actually do help to protect from the virus. Even if not guaranteed to protect you, it's still smart to use one. In China, there's no prejudice against wearing masks, they've been able to limit it's spread, and the west would be able to at least slow it down if people wore masks.
