Wearing a mask during the current pandemic has been accepted by and also rejected by large portions of the US population.Some of reasons are political, some are irrational and some are based on science. The latter being the more logical rationale.
It seems that the, “What you don’t see won’t hurt you”, mindset has taken over our ability to feel threatened by the virus. Yet, this virus like all airborne viruses has no concience or cares little about your ability to see it. You can only see particle sizes down to about 20 microns with the naked eye and this virus is about 0.005 microns in size which makes it only visible using an electron microscope. When someone who has Covid-19 talks, coughs, sings or laughs they are expelling millions of sub-micron particles into the air, some as droplets some as fine, invisible mist. The closer you are to that individual and the longer you stay in close proximity to that individual the larger the concentration of the virus you will breathe in. Unless of course you are wearing a mask.
The use of any covering over your mouth and nose is by far much safer than wearing nothing at all. Maks will prevent you from getting high concentrations and also minimize the amount of the virus you may transmit if you are infected. It is, in essence, the human thing to do.Covid -19 will continue to be with us for a long time just like the other Covid viruses for which many of us get inoculated each Fall to reduce our chances of getting the Flu. And, like the Flu this virus is always changing and the longer it stays around the more virulent it becomes and the less exposure you will need to become ill.
