As COVID-19 marches its way across the world, one subject has occupied two of the world's alleged leading nations overnight - face masks.
In the US the two leading men continue to publicly ignore the need for face coverings as those around them fall ill while in the UK, the public service broadcaster has provided a handy how-to for those with questionable (or no) sewing skills.
The UK's interest in face masks has been heightened after the government, keen for people to return to work, advised people in England to cover their faces in settings where they can't social distance
The public is also being urged not to buy surgical masks or respirators, which are prioritised for healthcare workers. So, let the how-tos begin.
Safe to say two men unlikely to bookmark any of those pages are the US President Donald Trump and his vice-president Mike Pence.
The US President has appeared sans face mask this morning despite the new guidance released to Trump administration employees will require them to wear masks when inside the West Wing.
Two aides working near the president - a military valet and Katie Miller, the vice-president's spokeswoman - tested positive for the virus last week.
Mr Trump and Mr Pence have long ignored the need to wear masks so that's unlikely to change anytime soon - even with the death toll surging past 80,000 and the push to reopening the economy growing.
A former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr Thomas R Frieden said: "We're not reopening based on science. We're reopening based on politics, ideology and public pressure. And I think it's going to end badly."
