Paper Masks are of little or no use in prevention and experts are debating the fact they they may increase risk.

People debating negative effects of the masks are mental .

I have searched around and their science is based on psychology (btw no one knows if this is actually a science to start with) . People will likely feel protected and start picking their noses and stop washing hands. very insulting to everyone civil with IQ 60. I can't believe the UK goverment is actually tolerating such nonsense. Goodlucktoyou on trains and supermarkets

The masks are a good thing. You will still have to wash hands. If everyone commits to wearing one I am virtually certain we can dramatically slow down the virus.

Sharp should consider selling on Rakuten and Amazon , sites that can easily handle the demand traffic.

Can't believe that people are giving thumbs down to someone being industrious and getting their own. We've been hearing about Sharp and their maskss for months but where they at?

Face masks should only be worn by people with cold or flu symptoms as an etiquette thing. They do nothing to stop the spread of Covid-19. The only things that are effective against Covid-19 are washing your hands and keeping a minimum of 1.5m away from others. Think about how many people wear masks in Japan and how many of those wear masks. Masks do not work against the spread of Covid-19!

Because the same poster makes a lot of claims and then their reverses positIon. The same poster a few weeks ago was posting about how masks were ineffective and how they never wore one. The same poster also claimed they had COVID-19 and overcame it, and, more recently, that seawater works against the virus. The poster is an extremely unreliable source of information.

Well, if you're calling him out on his 180,I'm fine with that.Maybe things changed that he thought he'd better get.Thomas seems to have his own peculiarities in what he feels,but that's alright.

I agree that the great majority of people getting the virus were wearing masks no doubt.But wearing one gives solace to people,gives the impression they are taking precautions and prevents being glared at for not wearing.

[Masks] do nothing to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Once again you're spouting this trope, even though it's been pointed out repeatedly that you are incorrect.

Just because masks are not 100% effective at stopping Covid does not equate to them being 100% ineffective at stopping it.

Face masks should only be worn by people with cold or flu symptoms as an etiquette thing.

Face masks while not being 100% effective at preventing one from catching Covid, are very effective at preventing the spread of it. Many carriers of Covid are asymptomatic. These are the people who should be wearing masks the most. Not as an etiquette thing, but as a health thing.

Sure

The only things that are effective against Covid-19 are washing your hands and keeping a minimum of 1.5m away from others.

And wearing masks.

Think about how many people wear masks in Japan and how many of those wear masks.

Masks are one explanation of why there has not been a skyrocketing of cases even in densely populated Japan, where the government didn't shut things down.
