The knight rode up to the tower.
"Hello!"
A dragon looked out of a window, high up.
"Yes?"
The knight held up a basket.
"Your food delivery."
"You're a hero! Please leave it by the door."
The knight did so, saluted, and rode off, leaving the dragon in isolation.

Mask wearing is to lower infection overall. Once you have it or think you get the symptoms it's too late.

A lot of cases are shown to be asymptomatic.

Unfortunately mask wearing gets associated with panic, so there is either more social pressure not to do it, or less social pressure to do it (it's growing now here in Germany/Berlin at least one of the articles have talked about wearing masks going outside)

I'm sorry, NL, but you have a dreadful food guide (De Schijf van Vijf). It's too complex to be useful, while also promoting commodities over health. Here is an actually useful guide (the one I used to use with my patients) translated into Dutch: hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsour
