It is costing thousands of dollars to treat a single person with this virus while these masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer cost almost nothing. Everyone going into a grocery store or working in a store should be wearing at least a N95 mask and gloves but none are available. I know we Americans think we are a lot more intelligent than the Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese but I can't help notice they are all wearing masks and gloves. But cheer up the stock market rallied today with record unemployment claims and there are a million checks going out to everyone who can vote, maybe we can attach a couple rubber bands on them and use them for a mask. Thank you for letting me vent.
I do notice that the masks that most people in other countries are wearing are the basic surgical masks which provide minimal protection , not the N95 masks. Those N95 masks are desperately needed by health care workers who are constantly exposed to the virus, not by the general public.

South Korea has tested 0.7% of its population, or about 1 test for every 149 residents over that eight-week period. The United States has tested about 0.1% of its population, or 1 test for about every 1,038 residents over the eight-day period.

That’s funny, people will barely cooperate now with the deceased at their feet just imagine the hysteria if any of these provisions would have been instituted on January 1st of this year. There are a lot of Monday morning quarterbacks and then there is reality.

yikes! almost 100,000 cases in the USA, and almost 1500 deaths as of now.

Who would have thought 2 months ago. How our world has changed...

If these diversions help you fine, but your "aim" is way way off.

Nailed it!

I am not at all saying we should be taking mask for medical workers just that an ounce of prevention sometimes saves a pound of cure. These masks should have been readily available considering what we know about infectious disease.

Maybe we should have had a "Rapid Response Team".....just saying.
