How can we demand all Brits to wear masks when our NHS workers are going short? – The Sun

Face reality

IT is easy to demand that all Britons should wear anti-Covid masks. But there are nowhere near enough.

And there is no case for anyone wearing one if it means social care or NHS staff going short, as they shockingly now are with PPE gowns.

They are directly exposed to infectious victims.

That said, well-made masks must surely be the key to relaxing these crippling lockdown conditions while minimising further spread of the virus.

Experts are split on how effective they are.

They are almost certainly better at containing a sufferer’s coughs or sneezes than at protecting others from microscopic particles in the air. But that’s far better than nothing.

And, frankly, what else do we have to prevent a second wave of infections once the lockdown begins to be lifted — as it simply MUST be soon?

Give now to The Sun’s NHS appeal

BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.

But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?

The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.

The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.

We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.

The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.

No10’s scientists are still laboriously “reviewing” their effectiveness.

Why so hesitant? Masks work in hospitals, after all.

Other nations’ governments are again beating us to it, relying on them as their exit strategy.

We reckon they are right.

Ours should do the same, whatever it costs.

Broken China

WHAT else is China lying about?

Its official Wuhan death toll has been raised by 50 per cent.

The original was clearly impossible to sustain, and locals say the real total is vastly higher still.

It no longer seems so far-fetched that the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab as scientists tested it. Is that why the regime was desperate to silence whistle-blowers and lie about its severity?

The World Health Organisation swallowed every line and worked as Beijing’s PR agents.

Meanwhile lefties here scream “racist” at anyone calling this horrific, ruinous disease — let loose in China, covered up by China, killing thousands in China — the “Chinese virus”.

We should not trust a word from China on this plague.

And we must pursue reparations from them on a colossal scale when it is over.

Jihad enough

WHAT an outrage that taxpayers had to foot the legal bill for enabling an alleged hostage-murdering jihadi to dodge the ultimate penalty.

El Shafee Elsheikh and his “Beatles” psychopaths were evil even by IS standards, beheading aid workers on video.

Terror victims’ families struggle to get a penny in Legal Aid.

Elsheikh’s mother got £23,000 to hire the finest QCs.



Joe Biden's sitting on his hands as Boris vows to protect Ukraine


No one wants a dead-end job but at least it's a start


Putin is attacking Ukraine because he thinks he can get away with it


Boris’s enemies are not the problem. It’s allies like me who voted for Brexit


And — surprise, surprise — the Supreme Court spared him from facing a death sentence in a US court and potentially paved the way for his return home despite him having lost UK citizenship.

We long for the day when the public no longer has to fund spurious appeals by monsters who would cut our throats.
