I thought same thing - went into the supermarket yesterday and many of the staff not wearing masks. Really makes no sense and many customers were taking theirs off after seeing this. Total farce. Would have made sense to me back in April, but now infection rate are low and social distancing/awareness in place, really... it just isn't necessary IMO and they offer jack in terms of protection - virus can be absorbed through contact with eyes or ears - so unless you're wearing a full bio suit... what a sh1t show this country has become. The ONLY reason to wear a mask is because you have to. Still too many knobs out there who can't cope if you walk within 6 ft of them. I always have a little cough when I come across them

Masks do work just not the ones 99% of the population are wearing, from the ones described on here from tackle companies etc to the throw away Blue ones most seem to like, absolutely pointless.

Funniest thing is you can also pick this up from surfaces so one without the other (gloves) again makes the whole thing pointless.

Wearing a mask is a bit like only fencing 70% of a lake in the hope you keep the Otters out.

Belgium with a population of over a million plus more people yet double the death rate of Sweden?

It's going to take a long time to sift through the data to come to any real conclusions, say like age of population more likely to be affected, ethnicity makeup etc.

Been the plan all along, just dressed up in frilly knickers to limit hysteria.
And the reason masks werenít on the agenda at the start, everyone was meant to be in lockdown and those who went out were well aware there was a potentially deadly respiratory virus about. If you really need telling a mask may help in those circumstances youíre probably not going to be a loss to mankind

Said it so many times, it's not like the Black Death

Well done. You're right. Give yourself a biscuit. Problem is, no one else has said it is like the Black Death. What it is like, is a virus that can spread fast, bugger up your local hospital and be spread by people who don't know they've got it.

I've said it so many times, carp fishing isn't much like basketball.

We're going to have flare ups until all the susceptible people have caught it and died, and herd immunity is established. Which was the goverments plan in the first place, until thousands of people dying made them bottle it for fear of the backlash about doing nothing. Now they are going to do the same thing subtly and hope nobody notices. Be prepared for distractions in the press and tv.

This the same Sweden that has one of the worst deaths to population tallies in Europe, and by far the worst of the Nordic countries (all the others locked down)

I find it annoying have to now go into shops wearing a mask.

I can sort of understand the logic behind wearing masks from the start, but now? Isn't that like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted? And...what about Sweden. Didn't go full retard like we did and they look golden now, whereas us, no doubt we'll keep having flare ups.

I'm still undecided whether it's suspicious or just that the government are being forced to cater to a baying crowd, you know, like those same types that like to flex their leftist muscle getting people de-platformed for the most trivial of things.

Said it so many times, it's not like the Black Death.

Exactly. Face coverings. Just something to basically stop you spraying the poor bugger you're talking to with a fine mist of gob, which could contain Covid-19.

Nothing medical, nothing complicated, and certainly nothing to complain about.

Unfortunately the Great British Public contains so many halfwits that the govt couldn't say this before, because they wouldn't have understood or wanted to understand the difference between face coverings and masks, and would have been elbowing pensioners out of the way to get medical masks, nicking them from hospitals and generally causing havoc. Just look at bog roll and hand sanitiser a couple of months ago.

Anyone do one with a massive carp's gob printed on it?

Thatís exactly my thought, the industry I work in involves wearing masks all the time and our suppliers were selling everything they had in stock to the NHS , consequently there were none available for general sale.
As they are now more readily available we are being told to wear them which I am totally in agreement with but I canít help thinking that we would have been wearing them weeks or even months ago if stocks were not in short supply.

Theyíve actually said to wear face coverings, not masks, which are to be used by medical staff.
They want us wearing them to protect others not ourselves. The ffp3 masks I have for work expel all the air and filter on the intake so essentially itís no better or worse without it for the purpose the government want.
And now Iím almost out I have to breathe in mdf dust or pay top whack for ffp3 or respirator filters.
So Ďmaskí shortage isnít a valid argument, the cheapo blue ones are as useful as a chocolate fireguard for doctors and nurses in icu

Totally agree with Gerry. However in my experience, the percentage of people wearing them on public transport is way too low and enforcement is virtually nil. I've always been of the opinion that it's pointless to introduce a new law unless it's going to be vigorously enforced.

The way I see it is initially we didnt EVEN have enough for our hospital staff and doctors to wear ? so all these muppets bleating on about we should have worn masks from the start
2 reasons
1. we didnt have anywhere near enough masks
2 . medical advice THEN was it wasnt that effective
however since then time has elapsed we got enough masks now AND more importantly and its now pretty much a PROVEN CASE that masks can and DO make a significant reduction in cases as the other countries that mask wearing was made compulsory are doing so much better that other countries that havent
