#5 Well, isn't Germany planning on putting people in CAMPS so they can CONCENTRATE on being better citizens if they don't follow lockdown (and now mask) rules?
I mean, they did that 80-85 years ago so people could concentrate on being good Nazis.

#8 Er, pre-COVID, N95 masks were routinely used in industry, construction, and maintenance. i.e. sweeping floors. There are medical certified N95 and regular N95, but the latter have been grabbed for medical use, too. Luckily, I had a few boxes around and also found a current supplier.

It’s a shame the Trump administration didn’t do a better job gearing up for N95 manufacturing. Biden will fix that, of course. /sarc

#9 I don't understand the crusade some people in the U.S. lead against wearing face masks in public.

They DO protect and are just a minor nuisance (unless you have to wear them for many hours which you don't. FFP2 (K95) masks can be purchased for 1 euro now (cheaper offers available). To wear them when shopping or using public transport is mandatory in Bavaria now.

#12 Maybe a little gold star for the new masks too?

I think the 'star' [of David] (which isn't necessarily gold) will go on your clothing and is given to those who don't wear a mask as they are carted off to camps.

It's been done before.

#13 What about those who have been inoculated? They cant get COVID (85%) which means they pretty much cannot give it. No mask needed.

#14 95% not 85%
