So, yeh, sure it works, if we ignore the basic logic flaws, the best app in the world, says PR man for company that wrote it. Logic doesn't matter does it?
The proof is in the pudding? UK curve is not falling, cases are not dropping off, Austria, look at their Daily New Cases curve, see the sharp decline, almost in the same 2 months as the UK, they're back to near zero:
They WORE MASKS. It looks like you're missing the mask thing. WILL YOU PLEASE WEAR THE F*CKING MASKS ALREADY!
It seems to me that someone in UK was worried that masks would be in short supply for the NHS, so they cooked up the most ridiculous argument as to why people shouldn't wear masks. It was a bad choice, the better choice would be to tell them how to make their own improvised mask. Now that that person has dug a hole for the UK, with a lot of bodies in it, and they find it difficult to reverse their decision and undo that damage. Not least because they've already planted the idea that masks are bad in people's minds.
Now it will be hard to explain to people that masks are good, after filling their heads with misinformation.
But wear the mask.
