Also, if everybody wears masks (not just the people who are infected) there won't be any public shaming. I think this is something they discovered in South Korea.
Will it protect me if somebody exhales near me? Probably not.
On the topic of re-using masks:
"However, they wrote, "70 C / 158 F heating in a kitchen-type of oven for 30 min, or hot water vapor from boiling water for 10 min, are additional effective decontamination methods."

CDC spending has increased every year since Trump has been president.. The unit was not fired, people left and roles were reissued..
The second part is simply intentionally inaccurate. Some were forced out and their roles were not reissued, they were dropped or ignored.
Although imo The Donald is just another selfish liar & con-man, the important part of that sentence is not ‘just another’. With this virus, He lies, people die.
I never could convince my old boss of that. He was using like 12 year old carbon filters. He swore that since he couldn't smell anything from the paint, it wasn't getting through. He was starting to forget stuff though, and was having other behavioral issues from the years of exposure.
