And look at China now for example, Vietnam, South Korea-thousands of people doing just fine, maskless and returning to normal life after ''draconian'' lockdowns and mask mandates, among other measures.
They are not maskless. They are still observing social distancing, where they can, wearing masks, contact tracing, etc. What you are saying is simply untrue.
*I was in Udon Thani(Thailand), yesterday, where I went to the main shopping mall to get some electronics. You cannot get in without wearing a mask, signing in(contact tracing) and having your temp taken. You are denied entry if you have a fever or refuse to wear a mask. 75% of people are wearing masks when it is completely unnecessary, now.
Udon Thani(the province as well as the city), has not had a Covid-19 case since April, and Thailand has been in single digit infection rate for over 7 months. 3,902 infections, to date, with only 60 deaths(still a 1.5% death rate).
China is still following the same protocols, as is Vietnam, and other SE Asian countries. Pretending otherwise is what ignorant Westerners like to to, in order to promote an anti-mask, FreeDumb, narrative.
You're the stupid one, @QatzelOk. You like to deny reality to fit your conspiracy theories and narrative that implies you are the only one "woke".
