WHO says mask are provide increase protection. Asian countries all telling their people to wear mask. Why wouldnt you wear mask if you got one?

People here are dumbfounded that American govt is telling their citizens its not needed. When we were short on mask a few weeks ago, alot of people resorted to making their own mask out of cloth, and face shield. Yes, even simple cloth provide a minimum level of protection. And its a good reminder to maintain good hygene.
Tell us why you think we need masks? What are they going to do to help normal people in normal general public? What about those who truly need them not being able to get them?

Yes I get it freak out a bunch and buy supplies because this is a zombie or end of the world movie because this is all we know. However maybe don't do that. There are people who really need masks and other crucial supplies and most of you don't. Good hygiene and being more cautious is super important though. Keep smart and while yes don't normally trust the government also be reasonable in a situation like this and trust trained medical professionals and sound advice.
