"The numbers of deaths we're being given, that's rubbish. I don't want to end up like China where you don't have any right to do anything," 

I have nothing but respect and admiration for these Austrian citizens bravely expressing there views in the face of a draconian assault on their freedoms.

Brandishing banners proclaiming: "You're the disease. We're the cure" and waving Austrian flags, most of the demonstrators refused to wear masks or respect social distancing rules, including far-right politician and former deputy chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache.

So this is really just a far-right rally masquerading as an anti-masker protest. Just another example of the cult of selfishness and anti-scientific sentiment poisoning so many liberal democracies in the time of Covid.

@bigyen. They were violently attacked by far right football hooligans.

as citizens they have human rights. Paranoid people have the right to stay in their house arrest. Paranoid mask wearers have the right to believe they can’t transmit of ingest the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Why should the care if they are protected?

let citizens make their own safe choice.

i don’t smoke, but people do.

Paranoid mask wearers have the right to believe they can’t transmit of ingest the SARS-CoV-2 virus. 

Only misinformed people believe wearing masks means you “can’t transmit of ingest the SARS-CoV-2 virus.” Informed people believe probably helps to limit transmission. I’m not paranoid but I wear one as common courtesy to those who are more vulnerable to getting very ill from this virus than myself.

I see maskless morons as lacking common courtesy among other obvious shortcomings.

I've had a look through other news media and can't find anything to back that up.

Do you have a source for that assertion?
