If u didn't mask up when 80,000 people died of flu in 2018, are you a hypocrite?

CDC: 80,000 people died of flu last winter in U.S.

yes. i honestly don't even care what the figure is. if you think you may have contracted or been exposed to a harmful and potentially lethal airborne disease and you do not mask up, ur a piece of shit. if you accept that for covid and not for other airborne diseases then ur a hypocritical piece of shit.

Citation for the number please, as is this 80,000 in the US alone, and for the entire year of 2018 or just the winter months. What about leading into 2019. End of 2017??

Cite.

No, you would not be, as there was no domestic nor international campaign for the use of masks in 2018, there was little NHS guidance for example in the UK, yet during coronavirus, signs asking you to wear masks, both government issued and private can be seen everywhere.

Different circumstances. Question is, do you think the government should have done more in 2018, e.g. masks campaigning, or should be doing less now? This post smacks of antivax.

EDIT

Apologies, I see the source cited now :)

u should not need a domestic or international campaign to tell you not to be an asshole. literally billions of people have been taking this basic precaution for decades now. this is not a novel precaution.
