In a not-so-shocking reversal of previous claims, experts have now come out warning people amid the coronavirus you definitely should be wearing a face mask. According to this Science magazine, experts have now warned that a face mask indeed actually can help slow the spread of the killer Coronavirus.
“This virus is transmitted by droplets and close contact. Droplets play a very important role —you’ve got to wear a mask, because when you speak, there are always droplets coming out of your mouth,” the Chinese Center’s George Gao told the magazine.
“Many people have asymptomatic or presymptomatic infections. If they are wearing face masks, it can prevent droplets that carry the virus from escaping and infecting others,” he said.
