“Mask-trees“ have been cropping up around the Czech Republic as a form of solidarity. Volunteers are making cloth masks at home and hanging them on “mask-trees” for anyone in need


For info, by governmental order #CZ requires everyone to cover their mouth and nose while in public.

This is quite easily achieved with a regular #scarf or neck #gaiter but for some silly reason people have taken to making “masks” out of old clothing. Clinically it doesn't achieve much but it's somewhat useful for other purposes.

I think the fixation with “masks” might be related to the supposed “oriental” origin of the affliction and possibly has #xenophobic undertones.
