Have u bought face masks?

Can't decide if I can be arsed if they're only good for protecting other people.

yes, ten weeks’ supply for whole household

Hm

What benefit are you hoping for? Stopping spread in the house?

being able to go out of the house in HK without being flared or shouted at

plus there is clearly some reduction in one’s chances of infection from wearing one, even if not decisive or great

Will probably just make do with the head from the gorilla costume and the moped helmet. 

They do not work

anyone wearing one in public may as well be wearing a Hmong hat. 

 

don’t personally think it will ever get to the stage where just walking around going about your business will expose you to significant risk

It can stop you spreading it. So it may become socially unacceptable in some settings not to wear one. Hilarious tho.

Most of these disposable masks won’t do anything.

I have a general service respirator which protects the whole face, including the eyes and has twin replaceable filters, as well as a bunch of filters.

Doubt it’ll be needed, but in case I have to go out and do some looting or something, it’ll protect me rather than just other people.

No, because all medical advice is that they have the potential to do more harm than good.

Clergs couldn't you bring out a fashion range of masks for fashionable woman or man about town.

Tartan one, united jack one for dux....

I’ve got some of those black charcoal ones that draw out blackheads

Dux wants a white one with a Red Cross.

Or possibly a red one with a hammer and sickle.

Where can I buy them in London? When I google face masks I got links to those cosmetic mud paste things.

I would only wear them if I have a cold and want to reassure other people. I won't count on them protecting me.

Looks like you accidentally pasted your draft Tinder bio in here m99

You’ll be crying when you’re all wuwud up and I’m safe m6.

hth

No, but manged to get some hand gel before shops went out of stock.  Feeling pretty smug as I sat on the tube this morning whilst I was reading my newspaper and subconsciously wetting the end of my finger with my tongue to turn the pages.
