Austria Has 90% Drop in Coronavirus Cases After Requiring People to Wear Face Masks

It’s not the masks. Stop spreading misinformation.

The drop was already in motion BEFORE the mask requirement was in place.

Plenty of other countries (Australia and New Zealand) which hardly NOBODY wears masks here and we have very low cases (relatively).

Isolation, border control and lockdown are the key contributors. Not a stupid piece of cloth in front of your mouth.

Masks actually make people touch their face far more than in a normal situation. And touching your face is how most people get sick... the mask is irritating to wear and needs constant adjustment which causes people to constantly touch their mask and face. This is bad.
