There is something odd about our public health doctrine on the social use of masks for disease prevention. I don’t intend to play Monday morning quarterback here: I am not qualified to say we have made a public health mistake in failing to adopt Asian social practices in at least a preparatory way. But there is definitely something funny about the discussion we are having about masks, and if you were to ask me to bet on what topic we will be second-guessing when the smoke has cleared, this is it.
