I think the mixed messages comes from the fact the hospitals are still scrambling for masks. If you tell 320 million Americans they need to wear masks they will steal the supply and make the doctors and nurses vulnerable. It’s game over if we lose them. We will come out of this a changed and stronger America. We won’t rely on China for the majority of our supplies and I guarantee you Trump will make us self sufficient and prepared for the next go around. It’s too bad previous administrations left us in a poor position to fight this. I just watched a video of a Chinese factory worker who makes surgical masks wiping hundreds of them on his sneakers before packaging them and laughing the whole time. Our relationship with China will be changing.

Masks should have been a prerequisite, they have been proved to lessen the chances of the wearer passing on germs.
