We have a desperate government in Victoria that has just made them mandatory. It will come here in NSW so I bought a packet of 10, gave a couple to an old bloke I know and even learnt how to make them fit (bending the wire at the top so it fits). PHUN part is they are useless in confined spaces and do nothing in the open.

As usual, stay out of confined spaces.

In my opinion wearing face masks should be mandatory en public places for the moment.

What you probably mean is that they are not 100% effective. Related to the covid there is a whole unexplored world for economic or political reasons. If the masks protect only a 20%, that's good for me. What I would not like so much is to get the vaccine. We must try to lead a normal life with any means that helps it.

Didn't you know that? They always do.  :joking:

About the masks, there is rumour they are not that good for your mental health.

On a flight Amsterdam-Ibiza two persons did not want to wear the mask and the rest did not seem to be very satisfied with that.

Effectiveness here refer to totally stop virus spread.  Investigations say: masks can't stop virus spreading.
But the goal is to slowdown velocity of transmision, and there is a lack of that kind of meassure. Just common sense, masks can do that.

1. The risk to get the virus in the open is roughly 2,000 times lower than in closed rooms.
2. Masks do not protect the wearer but rather the others.
3. In closed rooms, masks are very effective because the droplets coughed out do not end up in the air condition.

All the rest is either b*llsh*t or lousy communication by experts who never learned how to talk to people who do not have a PhD in virology. The result: you see people wearing masks in the park, at 20m distance to others; or in their car, where they are definitely useless (unless you are a taxi driver); or in the queue before the supermarket, where they are a) useless and b) fill slowly with your droplets so that when you enter the supermarket, they have become dangerously loaded with viruses.
