Hey you, wear your damn mask
This graph first appeared on the internet in late June, but nothing has changed. Nothing has changed! We’re now entering our third wave of Covid-19. If the second wave was “stupid,” what in heaven’s name is the third wave? Criminal? If your refusal to wear a mask results in someone else’s death, isn’t that criminal?
People say they’re tired of wearing masks, or tired of socially distancing, or tired of washing their hands — if they ever did — so they don’t comply. Are they trying for a fourth wave? A fifth?
Mask-wearing has been highly politicized in some quarters, but viruses don’t respect one’s politics. Non-compliance helped get us where we are. Non-compliance could keep us here.
Sure, Covid vaccines are coming, sooner or later. But there’s no vaccine for stupid.
So wear a mask. If it helps, think of it as a way to hide your stupidity.
