Blaird.....obviously there were no scrubbed up surgeons on my flight from Frankfurt to London, otherwise, according to your logic, we would have all had to gown up and glove up to protect us from respiratory viruses emanating from the nostrils of the surgeon. Thankfully, idiots on planes are few and far between.

The question now is about mandates.
People need to take responsibility for themselves. If you are immunocompromised, wear a mask or don't travel. It is not others responsibility to care for you.
If we take the view that we all take precautions to protect the vulnerable we will never progress at anything. Humans have made unbelievable strides in all forms of life through incredible people pushing boundaries. If we regress to being scared of any type of risk, we are dying as a race.
Government intervention in almost all cases of life is bad.
How many incredible humans are politicians? In most cases they make bad decisions. Mandates are one such decision.
pattrickk...those who took the poison prick are going to keep getting covid over and over and over again. No amount of masks are going to help them. Keep count as to how many repeat infections you will get in the next 12 months, and then get yourself another shot and double up on your mask. I'm vaccine free and travelling the world free of these self inflicted liabilities. Never felt better or safer. Hello from London. Thankfully I left Australia in Oct 2021 and since been to Germany, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Montenegro and UK. I think I had the Omicold once in Croatia. So don't believe everything on MSM that all those vaccine free will end up in hospital. Ha ha.

It completely shows the masks are completely useless and they introduced the mandates to see how far they could push the population or 'cattle'. They have gotten completely away with it and people are now so brainwashed they will do whatever these criminal, globalist organisations and governments tell them to do without a second thought.
If all you believe is mainstream media you will never be awoken. If your interested look into the tree of global ownership and you will soon see all the mainstream media is owned by the same people who control public health, energy, governments, organisations and so forth, and thus, will always only ever portray the desired agenda or narrative. Money, power and globalism has completely brainwashed society and people don't even realise it.

Anyway patrickk, mask up, boost up and stay at home. How long has it been now?

Only a Covidiot would make such an idiotic comment. Surgeons wear them to prevent spittle entering a patient during surgery. Wearing a mask indoors or outdoors in any other setting, when that has never been done before is a sign of mental illness. Let's scrap the muzzle wearing on planes. Europe has already done so, America too. It's high time Australia followed suit.
Besides, Australia was the last major country to impose masking on flights - what's so hard about now ending the mandate?

The thing is, anything an individual wants to do to mitigate their risk is fine, good for them.
But governments, back off, stop telling us what to do with politically motivated mandates.
Firstly, outside of Japan (and Hong Kong/Guangdong during bird flu), masks weren't common in Asia prior to Covid-19. There was the occasional person, perhaps 1/1000 people who did wear them, but if you looked hard enough, the same was true in the west (mainly in hospitals, where nurses who didn't want to get the flu shot were mandated to wear a mask instead...in countries ranging from the USA to Australia and the UK).
No one in Asia, where mask wearing is still prevalent (though it depends on the country as some such as Myanmar and Cambodia have effectively stopped wearing them...in Myanmar this is despite the mandate still being in effect) wears an N95 mask. They wear cloth masks that allow you to breathe better but are simply ineffective.
Aircraft have highly effective air filtration systems hence why mask wearing really isn't necessary.
Sounds like all those shots you received have only made you more scared and paranoid, but aren't protecting you.
