I think the mask thing is more of a fashion statement in Taiwan. I know Korea and Japan have been wearing masks prior to covid for fashion. However 99% of China wore masks pre-covid because of smog.

Masks are an Asian commodity it seems

Was going to say this. I had several foreign transfer students in my school previously that were Asian, and always wore a mask when they were sick, and for other reasons, all pre covid. Must be a cultural thing

Yeah 100% mask compliance in Korea and Japan pre-covid, sure...

Pre-Covid it was like 1 in 100 to 1 in 1000 in Asia (including China) - wearing masks.

No one cared, it was not political. Today it is and you get 100% compliance and it's legally enforced.

Correct. Taiwan is pretty frikkin based. They were warning everyone about the man-made CCP virus long before anyone else. With direct, and specific language. They give China the middle finger more than anyone else. They know Chyna is asshoe. But I digress, they have strict let controls because they’ve been hit hard by China a few times before, SARS being the most recent. Millions of our sheep would have been saved if this wasn’t all intentional where Fauci did everything in his power to allow it to spread, and we listened to them instead of him. But yeah, they wear their masks to fight China, our libs wear their masks to salute their comrades.
