Philadelphia 1918 vs 2020. Hopefully History doesn’t repeat itself.

They continued to wear masks well after it was over and it took a long time for things to get back to normal. People were very spooked and it had lasting effects. At least until 1920. In 1918 it was illegal in some places to not wear a mask. All of this to say that it STILL spread because masks can only do so much.
