This government, and Our BBC's, advice not to wear masks (gloves and goggles) is ensuring that every single one of these people is going to catch it. It's viable for 3 hours and 4.5m in direct aerosol form (China, US NIH and CDC). Washing your hands is hygiene theatre.
When are they going to change that advice, and whose heads will roll when they do?
