Why face masks are the norm in East Asia but not in the West

In countries like Japan or China, people have worn face masks in public since long before the coronavirus pandemic. Here's why.

    Leaders, doctors and scientists are saying that, for the last four months, people have been dying due to corona virus. But I do not agree with this. I have asked you, do you have a post mortem report of a dead person or not? The post mortem report will prove what caused the death. Now you tell me what are the reasons behind not making the post mortem report public? No one knows anything about how death is happening. Only the leaders and doctors of political parties are aware of this. Politicians and journalists of any country have made public the post mortem reports of those who died? Do you have any post mortem reports of anyone dying, or not? Hydroxychloroquine is the main cause of death of people infected with the corona virus. To divert attention from this truth, leaders are trying to create an atmosphere of chaos. I am surprised that there will be riots in America on the death of a man. Everyone is trying to react to these riots. The truth is, these riots have happened to cover up the truth. The main purpose of rioters is to fight people amongst themselves, to divert attention from the truth. I am not feeling sad The truth has been denied every century. What are you thinking that I will be silent by sharing this message? Earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes are enough to bring out the truth.
