Why you should wear your mask

A review funded by the World Health Organization and published in the scientific journal lancet concluded that staying at least three feet from others and wearing masks do appear to limit the transmission of the coronavirus. 

When someone coughs,talks, sneezes they could release germs into the air that may infect others nearby.

Wearing a face mask will help prevent the spread of infection and prevent the individual from contracting any airborne infectious germs.

Another study found mass adoption of face masks could even prevent a second wave of the disease.
