Here is why wearing a face mask to prevent infection is not the answer.
You are the only person responsible for whatever happens in your life.
When someone punch me on the nose, I don’t say “Oh my God, someone hit me!” Instead, I say “How the hell did I put myself in that situation!”
You are the only person responsible for whatever happens in your life. Face masks are only preventing you to infect people. They are not preventing you to being infected. As a matter of fact, masks might actually increase your chances of being infected.
Wearing a mask is only providing you a false sense of security, leading you to forget to wash your hands often, stop touching your face and stop keeping a safe distance from others, the much more effective prevention method.
Believing that you are protected, you will forget everything about social distancing which is really the only way to protect yourself from a possible infection. Staying at a safe distance of people and making sure that people are staying at a safe distance from you is the only way to make sure that you will not be infected.
Wearing a mask will not protect you. It may, if you are wearing it correctly and if it is the kind of mask that is efficient, only protect people that are foolish enough not to stay at a safe distance from you.
People are mainly buying face masks due to a lack of accurate knowledge about the transmission of the coronavirus. The hysteria is also clearly pushing demand as the public is met with an onslaught of pictures in the media of people wearing masks.
You want to protect yourself, don’t wear a mask, stay away from people, stay at a safe distance from people and make sure people are staying away from you.
