South Korea, with twice our population, has no lockdown, but everyone wears a mask – and it has 27 new cases today (17 April), versus Australia with 47 new cases today, under lockdown, but no face masks.
Britain, under lockdown with no compulsory facemasks, has 4,603 new cases today. South Korea says ‘wear a mask and wash hands, but don’t lockdown’.
When asked why people in other countries don’t wear a facemask, South Korea’s top doctor replied: ‘because they don’t have enough masks for everyone’.
Now the CDC says ‘everyone should make their own cotton facemask’ and in New York city it is now compulsory to wear a face mask.
The lockdown is unsustainable, unless the lockdown is being used for some unrelated hidden purpose.
To quote Martin Armstrong today, ‘Our computer is showing that if the economy remains closed beyond 1 May, we are looking at a global economic decline that will not bottom for 13 years, until we reach 2032.’
