I would think so. People really need to hold their criticism of our leaders until after the war (which we are very much in right now) is over with.

Some of them aren't any more articulate without! No names mentioned.

Is that due to shortage of PPE?
Can you imagine how many visitors have been infected?

------------------------
BOSTON (WHDH) - More than 230 employees across the Beth Israel Lahey Health system have tested positive for coronavirus, officials confirmed Thursday.

A total of 232 workers at 13 Beth Israel Lahey Health facilities have contracted the virus, a spokesperson for the healthcare system said.

Ninety of the cases originated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and 54 cases are from Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington.

Has any leader appeared in public or made an address yet with a mask? I've seen some images of Xi wearing one during a tour in Wuhan. Anyone else?


ANytime ive been away from home, I've been wearing an N95 mask when around people. Driving the car, I don't wear one. When I am alone working in my yard or walking in an area without people, I also don't wear anything. I do have a balaclava I wear when mowing the grass and such

In fact some officials of Wuhan wore it in a wrong way (exposing nose), and drew some criticism online.
TALKING ABOUT A LACK OF SOCIAL DISTANCING! None of those are N95s.

Yes for some reason social distancing was not heavily promoted in China, probably because masks were ubiquitous and outdoor activities were restricted already.

Reserve final judgement of the response until afterward? Of course - we won't know for sure what all of what was done right/wrong until the dust settles. But I absolutely believe that criticism of the response and handling of this situation by our leaders is warranted. Especially in cases where leadership are slow to react and are contradicting medical experts. Slow responses and mixed messaging have potentially deadly ramifications and every person out there has a right to be critical of that.

I think they are wearing a mix of surgical masks and the guy on the left with the glasses appears to have an N95 rated surgical mask on. Obviously I really can't examine in person to confirm

If I see you in a mask doesn't really bother me. I was in China back in 2008 and I saw a little bit of some here there. Now if someone's in a full Tyvek suit and it looks like a scene out of ET that's something different.

My homemade mask looks like it was destroyed in the wash. Anything glued hot will not make it and it stretched considerably
