In the beginning of 2020, the WHO and health experts around the world told us that there were no value in wearing a mask to combat coronavirus.

This is the reason why:

In southeast Asia, people wear them as a courtesy to others not as a preventive measure.

As lockdowns lifted in the Western world, masks were recommended. In some cases, they became mandatory, e.g. in France and the UK on public transport.

Healthy people should not wear masks.

I see a lot of younger adults — twenty- and thirty-somethings — wearing masks. Why?

The fear factor surrounding coronavirus is troubling, especially as lockdown lifts. Londoner Martin Geddes sums it up perfectly:

This delightful American explains why she is not wearing a mask. She asks that mask wearers not criticise her. She says that a) she loves God and b) trusts her immune system:

The American in the next video asks us to consider coronavirus in depth: dubious test results, job losses, tanking economies, spurious death rates and more.

He also points out that, while governments consider it acceptable for private sector and the self-employed to lose their livelihoods, public sector employees still have theirs!

He also presents another fact: our governments consider it okay to shut down entire countries, but, while that’s going on, it’s just fine to get abortions to exterminate the young and do away with the old in the egregious care home deaths that have taken place. Just to be clear, he strongly objects to lockdown, abortion, and causing the elderly to die.

This is a must-watch:

That clip comes in the middle of this five-minute video, which is all about coronavirus and how lockdown has ruined our lives this year. This is well worth watching, too:

Remember back in March when our leaders told us we’d only be locked down for a couple of weeks to ‘flatten the sombrero’ of the potential strain on all of our health care systems?

It’s now the middle of July. Consider where your country or state is with regard to lockdown.

In England, there has been a long delay for some industry sectors to reopen. This week in Parliament, many MPs — men included — asked daily about beauty salons. Conservative MP Caroline Nokes was one of them:

A week ago, hairdressers, pubs and restaurants were allowed to open.

On Thursday, July 9, Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, announced that reopenings would continue this weekend:

Even with this good news, many performers will not be able to get back to work as only outdoor performances will be allowed at this time.

Beauty salons will not be able to offer facials for now. Those are lucrative treatments, which would help salons recover more quickly:

This is simply absurd.

That said, Wales and Scotland are even more locked down than we are.

Strangely, a large number of people like lockdown and masks.

That in itself should give us pause for thought.
