Russia makes masks mandatory across country amid new Covid-19 surge

The Russian government has made wearing masks compulsory in public places across the country as it struggles to contain a second wave of the coronavirus. This is Russia’s most aggressive move yet to stem the pandemic. Rospotrebnadzor, the Russian federal health watchdog, urged the governors of the vast country’s 85 regions to order restaurants and entertainment venues to close by 11pm.

My main issue with all this demands is that they are arbitrary. Let me explain. Why does restaurants closing after 11 PM stop virus from spreading? Is it because people are more likely to be intoxicated and take less care? Why not tackle it with limit on alcohol? If masks help when they are properly worn and not when people just put over their mouth (I see it almost everytime, my estimate would be 50-60% people do it), why only focus that people have to wear it and not actually how? Can't check article as it's locked behind dumb login-to-view, so I can't tell when they must wear it, but if they have to wear at all times, isn't that just dumb? Not sure if it's just me, but doesn't wearing mask at all times increase your chance of catching some bug, seeing as you are providing warm, humid breeding ground near your mouth?

I guess they didn't read the science on the subject. Good, maybe they will take all those crap masks over there and get their people sick. Hopefully there is such a shortage none make it to my country. Wishful thinking, I know.

If only we lived in a totalitarianism hell hole that ordered masks from a single centralized government... Wouldn't that be better?
