In 3 days, they provided masks for 10million people.

I think we may need to see if we can do the same in the UK and the rest of the world.

It can be done but it takes a bit of determination and forethought.
People have got to see the reason behind them and really want to wear them.
There is a long list of countries where masks are mandatory. UK and USA are not on the list yet but some States in the USA are.

I think it is a lovely video - hope people watch it and pass it on...

From Monday on masks will be compulsory on public transport and in enclosed public spaces here in Berlin. So I went out and bought reusable / cleanable ones for us at the pharmacy together with observing ordinary hygiene rules (for hand washing, sneezing, coughing, touching etc.) it should get us out again.
I am waiting for my football club to roll out the fan version.

In Turkey you get masks when you show you ticket in public transport or your health card at a phramacy. A work mate has her vulnerable parents and other family living in different cities over there.

People should really be wearing masks when they are on public transport and in enclosed public spaces.

Why doesn't Bojo get on the tv/radio tonight or tomorrow morning and ask people to do this and start making masks? It can't hurt surely...

A bump!

In an interview many weeks ago with S Korean leading scientist Prof Kim Woo Ju he said that masks were recommended for all.

Where can we buy them? Don’t want to make one

They sometimes sell them on ebay, amazon...

But I think the medics may need them more than most regular folk...

I will just not wear one then as I’m rubbish at making things and would have to make 5 so the kids had them. We aren’t really going out anyway.

@PumpkinP

A scarf or bandana indeed is probably far better than nothing if you need to leave the house.

There are cloth ones for sale on amazon, pumpkin

I can't sew to save my life but I am planning to attempt the one i found on youtube linked above - was thinking of using old jeans for dc's ones smile I think the schools will require them when they go back

Apparently quilted material is the best
