[ Post a Response | The Yellow Board ]
Really? Every other day. They stated back in March that masks will help prevent the spread. After many studies, it was determined that the virus doesn't live long on certain surfaces, though so-called "high touch surfaces" where many people in a row touch it can still be a transmission surface (this was back in April). There was never any actual evidence that you couldn't catch it twice (more of an assumption). Even now, it is rare to catch it twice.
As to the protests...no one stopped people from protesting the fact that the country was closed down, just like no one stopped people from protesting against racism. People (non-protesters obviously) expressed concern about the spread during both.
