I've always wondered the same thing. Sure seems like those people would be the best advertising for promoting mask use.Where are all the people on the news that regret not wearing a mask because they got sick? Surely if we were the problem this would be on the front page.
New York never used the hospital ship that was available.True, but that was a pop up hospital built in an effort to head off the chance of a huge wave to would overwhelm the current system like in New York.
Plus who knows, maybe it was money trading hands and some back scratching going on. Guess those people should have worn a mask and not cost the tax payers so much money.
