Governments have used the coronavirus as an excuse to radically change our society in a very short period of time, and “normal” as we knew it is not coming back.
Our rulers won’t ever come out and admit that they blew things out of proportion, that coronavirus is about as dangerous as the flu, and that the lockdown was not only useless in stopping the spread but also a highly damaging and unnecessary measure.
These hazmat suits are here to stay, face masks are here to stay, and the lockdown is here to stay too — unless enough people get up to speed with the truth about the coronavirus hoax and start demanding all of their rights back.
After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officially recommended widespread use of face masks to help slow the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, the minimalist medical mask quickly got reimagined as a fashion accessory. Then model Naomi Campbell—a famous germaphobe—and musician Erykah Badu stepped it up a notch, sporting custom hazmat suits for stylish social distancing. Now, with the novel coronavirus pandemic showing no sign of slowing, travelers are taking note.
Yezin Al-Qaysi says haute hazmats are just the thing to make flying feel safe again. In mid-April the co-founder of VYZR Technologies, a Toronto-based company specializing in personal protective gear, launched a new product called the BioVYZR via crowdfunding site Indiegogo. The $250, futuristic-looking outer layer resembles the top half of an astronaut’s uniform, with anti-fogging “windows” and a built-in hospital-grade air-purifying device. Paranoid flyers were quick to scoop it up, pre-ordering about 50,000 suits and raising $400,000 for the nascent company. The first batch is set to be delivered by the end of July.
Nobody, not even Al-Qaysi, knows how TSA officials or airline staff will react to the suit, but that hasn’t dissuaded such early adopters as Ginny Maxwell, a talent manager based in Nashville. The mother of two children aged 10 and four had been on the fence about returning this fall to her childhood home of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to see her parents. “I was especially concerned about our 4-year-old not being able to keep a mask on for a flight,” she says.
After learning about BioVYZR through an email from Indiegogo, she and her husband decided that being laughed at for looking like Teletubbies would be worth a degree of safety; $1,000 later, the family of four feels better prepared to travel.
“They give us a lot of peace of mind,” says Maxwell. “And the kids are excited to wear their ‘space helmets.’ If nothing else, they will be a strange souvenir of this crazy time.”
So far, customers have included doctors, dentists, hairstylists, and long-haul travelers, though Al-Qaysi has seen a recent surge in interest from teachers and school administrators looking for a way to keep staff safe as schools look to reopen.
This paranoia is the result of a relentless, months-long bombardment of coronavirus fake news by the media/government. They are not going to stop on their own. People have to spread the actual facts about this hoax on their own.
These suits do not have to be a glimpse into the future.
Consider them a warning.
