The Dudes Who Won’t Wear Masks

The Dudes Who Won’t Wear Masks

It has been driving me crazy that almost no one in Switzerland is wearing masks in public, not even in crowded trains and shops. I find it puzzling that people apparently can’t be convinced otherwise. Harvard epidemiologist Julia Marcus now gave me a fresh perspective on this, by comparing the current situation to the early years of AIDS: «Trying to shame people into wearing condoms didn’t work—and it won’t work for masks either.»
