  1. Is this ok or normal to tell about wearing a mask for the American people!? The most advanced ppl in our planet? Is really ok to talk about this like talking to a kindergarten child? Peole need to check up their head.

  2. This is so SAD- that doctors STILL have to try to convince others to wear a mask– as Joe Biden says “Come on Man!!!!!”

    1. deborah b: Gee, I wonder why that is…could it be because Trump’s little sniffers think that Trump knows what he is talking about?

    2. @deborah b the thing is that no matter how much you explain the situation to them even when you make it so clear that a 5 year old understands it, they won’t accept the reality no matter how much you seperate the fact from their fiction. They just won’t let go, they are too far gone.

    1. @X A I didn’t get sick, and I didn’t get anybody else sick all year so who are you gonna blame for this catastrophe? Trump? I guess he single handedly killed every person falsely diagnosed with covid from suicide, pneumonia, shootings, heart attacks, car wrecks, and falling off buildings too. I have a bridge to sell you real cheap.

  3. Why are people still “needing to be convinced”, coddled or placated about this?! All anyone had to do was pay attention to the images coming out of china back in jan to understand how potentially deadly the virus could be, and what steps needed to be taken to protect themselves and each other.
    People are so effn fragile!!

    1. liberals believe what they’re told to believe by lifelong corrupt politicians celebrities and mainstream media fake news propaganda

  4. God Bless All Americans. Please wear masks & wash your hands, social distancing & please stay home if you can.

    1. @DAVID so we should believe you over the CDC, the NIH and every ER doctor and nurse on the planet?
      Right…

    2. @Michael Hancock I don’t care what you believe. I believe what I see. No full hospitals, people being sent home with no treatment, and media hyping up flu sadistics.

  5. Sad that adults have to be spoken to like they’re in kindergarten, with the hope that they will listen…

    1. Adults are a just kids who’ve waited out the chance to misbehave and act irrationally without the threat of consequence.

    2. It’s like a return to the dark ages up in here, people are actually _afraid_ of medical advice. I can’t count how many comments I’ve read just at YouTube alone, “masks don’t work,” or worse: “masks make you sicker.” It’s as if they think they’re reinventing germ theory with some of the crap I’ve heard, like patients telling their own doctors that “Covid is a hoax,” from their own deathbeds! We’re allowing these imbeciles to dictate how dangerous this gets. Mandates need to be implemented and enforced.

    3. @Max Covfefe “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”

      A quote taken from a published paper in the New England Journal of Medicine written by 5 public Health Experts in late may of this Year.

      So I guess the kindergarteners are published scholars that exist outside of YOUTUBE as well.

  6. I wonder do all these people that have been told to wear masks and don’t, need to be told to change there underware because they don’t think they need to?

    1. No, not arrest… more like a fine for refusing to wear one in public places. I’m sick of seeing decent people just doing their jobs being harassed by entitled Karens who can’t just cooperate in a society. It should be like getting caught driving without your seat belt.

    2. @Max Covfefe ok a fine, fine them. But the latest is: don the con is being backed up by the republikans and they are telling him not to leave the Whitehouse. So, now the Dems will have to OUST him! Seriously

    3. @Go Fish I said it form the start: they gonna have to drag him out. He’s not leaving of his own free will. I predict the one luxury Donald Trump will NEVER be able to afford again is peace of mind.

    4. LONG LIVE THE GREAT AMERICAN COMMUNIST PARTY. People with this type of mentality will be the real death of our nation. From a mask wearer (not oppressor) and non trump lover by the way..

  7. What do the corona and t’rump have in common?
    Both are single-minded forces who have never been loved and don’t care how many Americans die because of their lack of caring.

    1. Keep your eyes on Florida, South Dakota, California, and New York. In six months take a look a the number of teenage and young adult suicides, drug overdoses, and homicides in these states. Compare that to covid deaths (age of deaths). Then do some math in regards to years of life lost. Finally, examine your statement regarding the incompetence literally killing us.

  8. I ware a mask as everybody should but I have fun with mine funny wild and bizarre, even ones that have IEDs in then.

  9. There should be fines for not wearing masks in public at this point. Just like seat belts in a moving vehicle.
