The "experts" were telling the public not to bother with masks a few weeks ago.
Idiots! Scientism kills pple's innate reasoning abilities & survival instinct— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) April 7, 2020
You don't wear a mask jus because you have evidence that transmission is airborne. You wear a mask because YOU DON'T KNOW whether transmission is airborne.#Asymmetry.https://t.co/A8VyyVFW2A
They were also discouraging people from stocking up on food, toilet paper, disinfectants, etc. If you stocked up, then the worse that will happen is that you'll have rice, flour, pasta, and so on for many many months. If you didn't stock up, then the worse is that the Coronavirus shatters the supply chains and YOU DON'T HAVE FOOD FOR YOUR FAMILY.
Stocking up is the rational option. Yet, idiots on the Internet point and laugh at those who took the logical steps.
