IZAL Medicated I remember that from School. Horrible stuff.
I am seeing an increasing number of people wearing face masks when out and about, but I wonder if wearing it makes the user invincible? Many people behave as if this is is true with other PPE
You may be correct there as it seems an awful lot of people do not know how to wear them. It will also be increasingly difficult to wear them as the summer (here) comes along - 30 degrees with high humidity won't make for a pleasant experience.
I wear them when near other people but when nobody is around I don't see the point. I may as well wear one on the terrace of my own flat during the 2000 applause when most people are out clapping.
I see people locked inside their own car windows up and (if they have been playing by the rules) nobody else has been in it for 6 weeks. The people are wearing masks.
I wonder if these same people have their seat belt correctly fastened and working. I wonder if they take no notice of the safety announcements on aircraft?
Yet they wear the mask in the pretty much sealed car?
I saw today a beggar outside a supermarket (there are going to be an awful lot of beggars before this thing gets sorted) and the poor man was coughing and spluttering and spitting and looked just plain awful; a few metres away was a person talking on the phone without a mask and downwind of the poor man seemingly obsessed with her conversation. It would not be unusual to see things like this.
