Recent studies recommends the use masks. In many countries they have already demanded or at least recommended to use them. In countries where they are used the virus has spread much more slowly than before.
On 20 April 2020, the German government strongly recommended the use of protective masks in public areas. In some countries, the use of protective masks is mandatory, especially in public transport and shops. Masks can reduce the risk of droplet infection to other people when breathing, talking, throwing, or coughing.
In Canada, the use of masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19 is also recommended. Citizens are encouraged to use non-medical protective equipment to reduce the risk of infection for others. Canada made recommendations when it received new findings on the role of an asymptomatic carrier in the spread of coronavirus.
According to experts, thanks to the spontaneous use of masks by citizens, Hong Kong and South Korea have achieved good results in preventing the spread of the coronavirus. In these countries, movement in public places is not severely restricted. On 23rd April 2020, there were 1,034 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong, four deaths and no new cases. The total number of South Korea on April 23rd 2020 is 10,702 confirmed cases and 240 deaths and only eight new cases have been identified. Hong Kong and South Korea are showing the world that there is light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel.
In Singapore, the use of masks is mandatory in public places and a fine of $ 212 is imposed for violating the rule.
It is assumed that the use of masks will also increase in Finland and elsewhere in Europe. Masks also prevent contact with the mouth and face area, which in itself reduces the risk of infection. If you have an asymptomatic infection, you will not spread the virus this way either.
