Today, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released another report on its guidelines and guidelines on how to properly wear a face shield in such a difficult time as it is now. Despite the fact that most of the users in any case are already actively using masks on a daily basis, nevertheless, statisticians continue to register quite a few cases when they are worn incorrectly, or when some people in the most flagrant way violate generally accepted and established rules of hygienic behavior at the time of a global pandemic – this is exactly what a new report from specialists from the CDC is dedicated to.
First of all, it is worth noting the fact that their new statistical study on the main trends in wearing masks and the related report in one way or another targets that audience group that in the most direct way violates the established rules and does not want to wear masks in principle – as experts warn , it is this reluctance that is the primary reason why the new type of coronavirus continues to spread. In addition, experts noted the fact that the mask must necessarily cover the area of the mouth, nose and chin, since some people – one might even say many – neglect this point and usually lower a protective mask over their mouth, leaving the nasal area open.
Regarding the type and format of masks, the CDC recommends looking closely at using a standard cloth mask, without separate opening respiratory channels, since this format often leads to confusion and inability for users to control them.
It is worth noting the fact that the new rules for wearing masks and other principles of personal and collective hygiene from specialists from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in principle, are not even such – they only remind people to adhere to the rules of being in public places, taking into account all current viral trends and behavior patterns in the new type of coronavirus.
