    Yea Trump supporters are not wearing masks and their dear leader is holding super spreader rallies (no masks, no social distancing by the thousands) across the country leaving 35-50% spikes in his wake. He is not only incompetent he is actively spreading the disease, Mike Pence is possibly infected and he is holding rallies , not wearing a mask instead of quarantining or being cautious.

    I was referring to Europe. We all have strict measures, punishments and (as far as I can see) high acceptance and obedience of mask wearing.
    Yet numbers soar.

    Well unfortunately most people don't understand and probably only will when it hits close to home or they lose their job due to lockdowns.

    Even then I doubt they will. I expect those kind of people to go riot for their liberties instead of wearing a mask and washing their hands

    That's rather normal isn't it? Not big on shopping for holiday stuff but do know it gets displayed fairly early.

    Good point considering some nations are extending measures till May 2021.

    Well, in some parts of Europe (as in mine for one), there's actually not only VERY few measures taken by the authorities (although plenty of "advices on a completely voluntary basis") but the use of face masks is also straight out dissuaded from (here, by the very state epidemiologist himself). So, you really shouldn't paint with such a broad brush when it comes to Europe and corona, attitudes and responses vary a LOT.

    Well, I can only speak for my city of course but here we have, I'd say 95% adherence. It's quite rare to spot a person w/o mask in a shop or a bus.
    Disabilities exist (I was one of them until temperatures came down and allowed me to wear a mask), so I refuse to label everyone w/o a mask as a "covidiot".

    Which is in Europe, the place with no restrictions.
    France, Spain, Italy, Germany and many other countries in the region are part of Africa.

    Wait...was this the repurposing of the $300M that was supposed to go to a big "optimistic and uplifting" ad campaign featuring Hollywood celebrities that fell apart when the best they could do was Dennis Quaid and Shulem Lemmer?

    Mall fuckin santas?
