    It's time for everybody to get back to work wearing masks. Come on now, the economic fall out has to be taken more seriously than the danger of young healthy people wearing masks dying of the virus. I think social distancing should be left to common sense if people are by law required to wear masks in confined spaces. Queuing outside shops in the future is ludicrous so time to wear masks and get back to work.

    There will never be a law for people in the UK to wear masks. We can't currently even meet the demand for keyworkers to have enough masks, let alone most of the UK public needing them.

    People underestimate how many masks would be needed. It's not one mask per person.

    Are you serious, If supply was the problem there would be no problem. It's the desire to do it that is missing. I can see everyone's point of view but this economic meltdown is simply not a solution.

    Supply is a major problem at the moment and one that isn't being solved right now.

    You go and try to buy 60,000 masks right now. It's impossible unless you're back-ordering weeks in advance at a minimum.

    I agree with you on the economic situation. We've swapped one major problem for multiple other major problems which will come after the fact.

    Masks are compulsory here in Andorra and in Spain. It's the norm. Although I think people who drive solo and wear them are daft, its like wearing a condom and not having sex.

    https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-shearings-collapses-with-loss-of-2500-jobs-11992922 Shearings the other day too. They specialise in group OAP trips and hotel stays, so that will have a knock on effect on hotels.

    It's a weird time because it's reasonable to think that things will get much worse for companies before they get better, and that while feasibly things covid-19 might be a thing of the past in a year or so (or at least not terrifying the elderly and vulnerable), so many companies will be unable to hang on for that to come about. It won't look pretty when the furlough scheme ends. So many people will be let go.
