    A lot of countries outside of the Western hemisphere don't really give a damn about Covid, they're living their lives.

    You’re apparently unaware that for various historical and cultural reasons, East Asian countries were far more diligent than the West regarding mask wearing.

    but you go on with your Q/MAGA self.

    China wears mask because of pollution....yeah, that's a thing in Cina. No other countries wear masks walking around while conducting their daily lives. But go ahead with your cancel culture.

    I don't really want to continue this derailment I inadvertently started but this is demonstrably false. Most E and SE Asian countries have a long and accepted practice of masking for even simple things like the common cold and for pollution, to limit sun exposure, etc but those are social issues of a different stripe. If you visit those places or work or live with people recently from those places you'll see for yourself.

    That you comment so confidently about a subject you obviously know so little about is simply...

    by virtue of the fact that I am reading something you wrote here...I am assuming you have access to this thing we call the internet. Among its many fantastic features are tools called search engines where you can ask your computer or phone anything about any subject you’re interested in and they return voluminous information about said subject. You should find one of these exotic areas of the internet and learn exactly why Vietnam has controlled the Covid spread in their country. Since you’re obviously interested in how countries like Vietnam address pandemics, I think you’ll find it worth your time.

    Well before Covid, Japan, as well as other Asian countries, were full of folks who wear masks if they suspect they are sick. If you are on public transportation in Japan and appear sick with no mask, you get stared daggers. SARS hit Asia quite hard and left a mark.

    My kid got quite ill in the train station in Kyoto on the way to Tokyo (food poisoning, most likely.) We were given masks by 4 different strangers in the station, as she looked visibly unwell/feverish.

    Also folks in Japan break out their masks during pollen season.

    Living their lives, except, of course, the couple of million dead. They are having some issues with that plan.
