Protect Yourself. Masks for All

In the Czech Republic, masks have been compulsory since March 18th. The country has only 2 deaths (as at March 24) and the growth of new cases has flattened, whereas in other parts of Europe the pandemic is largely out of control. How has this happened? One of the key reasons is a massive country-wide community initiative to create and wear home-made masks. In just 10 days the country went from no mask usage to nearly 100% usage, with nearly all the masks made at home with easily accessible materials, like old t-shirts. See

In S Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, there is no lock-down. Yet covid-19 is being controlled in these countries. How has this happened? One of the key reasons is that mask wearing in public is ubiquitous and socially expected.

  1. I just ordered a box of 50 3-layer D376331 Face Masks this morning, from a company that caters to businesses, but there are a number of videos on You Tube that show how to construct effective masks from a wide variety of household articles or clothing. We should all be prepared for when the stay sheltered at home restrictions are lifted, and masks do provide extra protection.


    1. This virus kills less than the flu did last year and on. As I said before, this whole ‘scare’ is about something else.
      Personally I am not worried about it. The damage done to the USA is complete. I doubt it will recover these lost businesses and jobs.
      Thanks Bill Gates.
