If masks were so ineffective, how did they prevent Japan from getting almost anything even as millions continued to ride crowded subways in Tokyo? If they were so ineffective, why did seasonal flu drop 99% in the Southern Hemisphere in their winter this year?

Again the ignorance on this thread is just fascinating
Bottom line Society works a lot better when you have some safeguards
