One of the reasons the U.S. has such a hard time getting in front of the pandemic is wearing a mask has been turned into a political statement.
That’s according to President Joe Biden, who says the government will soon be sending masks to all Americans. “We're probably going to be sending out an awful lot of masks around the country very shortly, millions of them,” Biden says. "We could have saved literally an awful lot of lives if people had listened. We turned wearing masks into a political statement. If you were for this thing, you wore it, if we were for somebody else, you didn't wear it, when in fact, it's just plain basic science.”
Last April, the previous Administration discussed sending out 650 million masks to all Americans, but the plan never went anywhere.
Would more people have worn masks from the start if they'd been given them for free?
