Protective Masks – FOR and AGAINST it
The protective masks have now become an integral attribute. Without them, it is forbidden to be in shops, workplaces, public transport, and even on the street. Modern society has divided into two camps during the pandemic, one for those who are FOR wearing masks and the other for those who refuse to wear them on principle. It can be heard from some experts that even an increase in the number of the diseased will not force “covid dissidents” to wear masks.
Many feel like being without individuality, restricted, some are just tired of fear and express their feelings in such a manner. Many doctors claim that it is due to the violation of such rules that the number of patients with coronavirus is increasing. Our article summarises the arguments FOR and AGAINST the mask regime but how to act remains in your own sense.
Difficult times cannot be survived without humor, so we have selected trends that have occurred during nine months of the pandemic. Feature: “What Is in Fashion Today?” at the end of the article.
So, let us start by arguments AGAINST wearing masks:
Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the head of the department of the microbiology, virology, and immunology of the First Moscow State Medical University, named after I. M. Sechenov, Vitaly Zverev (Виталий Зверев) states that wearing masks is not only meaningless but harmful. According to him, the virus cannot survive on surfaces for 2 – 3 days, it breaks down quickly. In other words, what the mask gives to a person is only a bouquet of fungi, allergens, and bacteria that we bring home and put to our faces. Wearing a mask in the fresh air has no sense at all. It is not possible to pass the virus by observing social distance.
Now let us look at arguments FOR wearing masks:
Mask – Protector
There are statements that masks protect the rapid spread of the virus, up to 50%. Here is how it happens: saliva contains particles of the virus. While sneezing, yawning, and yes, even while simply speaking intensively, the mask protects against the spread of the infected saliva that could settle down on a surface that for the time being might be touched by a healthy person. The percentage value of the efficiency of the mask depends on its material.
Маsk – Limits Habits
By the way, have you noticed how often we touch our faces? If not, observe it. It happens when we think intensively, when we are tired or worried when we laugh, yawn, etc. That way, we try to feel our faces once more. In such a situation, the mask is the best way to refrain from touching the face unnecessarily and it reminds us that it should not be done during the pandemic, given that the virus may be transferred from our hands into the mucosa.
Mask – As a Moral Sign of Solidarity
We are all for one! For the maintenance of public order. A person wearing a mask reminds us once more that there is a particularly difficult time at present in which we can support each other by using a distinguishing mark – and so be it a mask.
Do not forget that masks can be argued endlessly, but if a person shows symptoms or has been diagnosed with coronavirus, he/she must stay at home or be hospitalized.
