America, let’s face mask. Come on. We’re a smart country, aren’t we? We make mistakes, but we learn from them, right? Let’s beat this thing together.
Some interesting facts popped up Wednesday in the New York Times. In an opinion article, the authors casually shocked us. Why weren’t we told this before…?
While New York City’s recorded around 20,000 coronavirus deaths, similarly sized Hong Kong has… just four.
But differing results were easily explained.
“Close to 99 percent of Hong Kong residents have been wearing masks, to prevent the wearer from spreading the virus, since early February,” the authors wrote.
They continued, “According to a mid-April Gallup poll, only a third of Americans say they always wear a mask or cloth face covering outside the home. Another third of us sometimes wear a mask in public, and a third never do.”
So, America, do you want to wear the mask and be like Hong Kong? Or would you prefer a New York-like death toll weaving across the nation?
And that’s not to mention forcing parts of America closed indefinitely.
Come on, America. Let’s face mask!
