Is that how viruses work? Are viruses able to discriminate between the different types of risk and not infect people when the risk falls into one of the correct categories?
Damn, my trial Amazon order for masks fell through. Totally expected, of course. As a separate note, saw some info on the internet that US apparel manufacturers re-purpose their factories to produce masks from US-grown cotton. The factories are in Latin America. If those countries try blocking the shipments - a short flight for the Marines to rescue the masks. Mask you ass up - HK!

In Singapore, more than half of the population wore masks in Feb. But by Mar, fewer people were wearing them. The main reason is that we can't buy enough masks, not that we think they are useless.
We all envy that countries like Taiwan, South Korea and Japan can provide their citizens with enough masks.
In fact, since Mar, there have been an increasing number of cases in Singapore where no trace has been made to the source. All this worries us Singaporeans.
The Singapore government is one of the best in the world at tracing the source of the infection, which is why we have been able to keep it under control. However, compared with Hong Kong, Despite its geographical proximity to Mainland China, the climate is not as hot as Singapore, and the government is not as effective as Singapore, they have fewer cases than Singapore.
In all these respects, Hong Kong has been more successful than Singapore in controlling the outbreak.
My profession teaches us that masks can effectively reduce the chance of infection and infecting others. My colleagues and I were surprised when western governments and the WHO claim masks aren't effective.
I won't guess why they claim that but our Singapore government was honest to admit that it was a risky decision not to provide masks to all the citizens.
After our government uniformly distributed 4 masks to each citizen, the rest was left to the medical staffs. At least our government won't lie and say masks don't work.
One of the research I have studied in my profession has shown that masks can reduce the chance of primary school students catching the flu. Primary school students are the most difficult group to use masks properly, and they can prove the effectiveness of masks on them. I don't why there is someone who thinks that using masks on adults increases the risk.

I will pick staying home/minimising social contact and not wear a mask than going out and about strutting in a mask all day.
I bet a dollar that those who went to LKH thought their beautiful masks would shield them from all harm and left their brain at home have caused more harm.
This to me is the conundrum of mask wearing. Net net it's negative because of the false sense of security it brings.
Stay away from WHITE people, deadly virus are speading from them, they do not wear mask. Stay away from Central, Lkf, Admiralty Discovery bay, outbreak will happen there. Please ask white people off the bus if they don’t wear mask, as their are endangering the entire group of passengers and driver.
