The entire western world didn't take it seriously enough, so no-one wore masks, and the virus ripped through entire communities in no time flat.

Where numbers are high in Asia, it's predominantly because of small clusters of arrogant or stupid behaviour (e.g. religious meetings), where masks were spurned.

So, rule one, for the next one: Wear masks.

Rule zero is, of course, Don't be a dick, but that rule's appropriate at any time, not just during a pandemic.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
