The Case for Everyone Wearing Masks
- The people who are already infected do not spread the infection to others.
- Those who are not infected do not get the infection from others.
- When the virus is contained within the mask of an infected person, it will not get on his hands so that he will not touch on surfaces and deposit the virus there and thereby spread the infection to anyone else who is touching the same surface. One very important point to note in this case is that the persons wearing masks should not touch their masks at all.
