Have there been any claims from the "don't tread on our freedoms" crowds that increased mask-wearing produces increased crime because people know they're less recognizable? I'm kind of surprised I haven't heard anybody fearmongering about that yet.

I haven't seen any. But I do know a couple "this is a hoax, no worse than the annual flu" types who previously had (legit) concerns about privacy, with cameras all over the public sphere and the government investing in facial-recognition technology -- but won't say why this same government is now promoting a "hoax" which would render those same facial-recognition algorithms useless.

I know they object to N95 masks, but what about balaclavas?

It's mostly coming from the other side. Black people can't wear masks because cops/racists shoot black people wearing masks.

This asshole
US Vice-President Mike Pence has visited a top US hospital without wearing a mask, despite the medical centre's own rules that visitors wear personal protective equipment.

Mr Pence appeared to be the only person present not in a facial covering at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
The Mayo Clinic itself requires all patients and visitors to its medical centres to wear a mask or face covering.
"As vice-president of the United States, I'm tested for the coronavirus on a regular basis, and everyone who is around me is tested for the coronavirus," he said.

"And when the CDC issued guidelines about wearing a mask, it was their recognition that people that may have the coronavirus could prevent the possibility of conveying the virus to someone else by wearing a mask.

"And since I don't have the coronavirus, I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to be here, to be able to speak to these researchers, these incredible healthcare personnel, and look them in the eye and say thank you."
You would think the VP would be able to get ahold of one of those masks that doesn't cover your eyes.

Damn. I was just talking to traveller and a friend from the lamebook about that. Why are they all white? How is that possible? I'm just shocked no one has pointed out it's like almost 100% white people in these protests.

Throwing a towel down on the furniture reminds me, I really want to find a nudist colony to join. (Because I'm not fucking my kids up enough with the unschooling.) (Actually, they're already little nudists, I'm just bowing to familiar peer pressure.)

So basically covid reported deaths dont explain the rise in global death rates. Some countries are seeing up to 50% more deaths than this time last year and some like the US are around 15% or so.

Man it's supposed to be one bird two stones. The nudists shouldn't have colonized down by the river downstream from Three Mile Island.

Looking at those charts... and then realizing they're on a log vertical scale.

It's bad from the standpoint that the apparent distance between the US and everyone else is actually representing a much larger difference in numbers.
