Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases.
Recent research, which is being updated daily, now suggests that a mouth & nose covering is a credible and effective way of reducing the spread of Coronaviruses, including COVID-19:
Masks decrease the virus spread by infected individuals. The mask traps virus particles, preventing them from becoming airborne.
New infection is decreased by lessening the ability of unaffected individuals to inhale the virus particles.
Acting as a physical barrier, limiting hand to mouth direct contact and further risk of contamination.
Visible promotion of universal mask wearing is a standard public health requirement in public spaces across the globe.
- Taking personal ownership and responsibility of your environment and public health.
