  1. 2 per week is useless if they can't be cleaned and reused.
    More people will get infected from others going out to waste their time to get these 2 masks.
    First thing they did in South Korea they really did wrong.
    People will need at least a few a day if working.

  2. China quarantine 700 millions people to ends of March.Economy growth drops 30% to 70% this year depending on sector's.

  3. To people complaining why it's only two, people here go out only when needed. They don't go out 7 times per week. Let's say there's 4 of you in the family, you get 8 mask in one week, which not all will be used in one week.

    And to those saying it's not useful: BLAH BLAH BLAH 🤪

  4. Almost the same order has been issued in Russia. It's prohibited to export med masks outside of Russia except certain arias specified by RU GOV (simply China, Mongolia and others)

  5. I guess they wont have any mints either
    But this with chelated
    Copper would help

  6. resale of masks at high prices amid coronavirus-triggered shortage. = Japanese mentality.
