Exactly right these people are just like the jews and will prey on the vulnerable to gain from their fear.
These masks and safety equipmwnt will not stop corona virus but social distancing and simple precaution as frequwntly washing hands with soap and water. Sanitizers are temprory solution which is used for a short time in absence of water.recomended 6 feet distances is the minimum.dont need to buy masks you can use your own cloth to cover the face which will be more safer then the 3ply paper masks.
