Re: Still not good enough

Good take. But. The PRC is investing most in nuclear. wind and solar. The majority of regional "planned" coal fired plants won't be built.

"That's how public health initiatives work, they protect the public, not you personally."

But then Thatcher and the "me, me, me" fillofersee arrived and everything that went and still goes with it.

Re: further.

"So, let me get this straight. Are you suggesting that I SHOULD wear a mask, all the time (in crowded places) to protect me from something that I might catch 2-3 times in my whole lifetime, even though I am yet to see any compelling evidence that the mask would actually give me any protection?"

No. To stop you from spreading germs. It is patently obvious that you don't understand simple science.

"as I now see hardly anyone in England wearing them." And that is why the UK had such a high mortality rate. It still has the 9th highest infection rate and 7th highest death rate globally/

The USA which has a similar kiss my arse approach has the highest rates in the world.

gandalfcn Silver badge

"how about a simple comparison" Befroe all thge murtatgionbs kicked in the nuimbers were

New Zealand. Population. 5 million. Covid deaths. 51, or 10- per million.

Hong Kong. Population. 7.6 million. Covid deaths. 213, or 28 per million.

UK. Population. 68.3 mn. Covid deaths. 148,089 (7th in the world), or 2,164 per million (10th in the world).

USA. Population. 333 million. Covid deaths. 766,117, or 2.3k/mn.

Russia. Population. 146 million. Covid deaths. 203,900, or 50,824/mn.

Israel. Population. 9.3 million. Covid deaths. 7,675, or 823/mn.

NZ had masks and lockdowns that were adhered to, as did Hong Kong. UK and USA didn't, they had sporadic lockdowns and very sketchy kask wearing.

Sadly the followers of Murdoch/Fox/Tucker Carlson et al just believe edited and doctored clips and misinformation.

Re: Irony alert

To the ill informed downvoters. Masks reduce the risk of infection by the virus, i.e they protect. Learn some science, you are supposed to be science literate not Murdoch drones.
