A new study has settled the debate about the feasibility of wearing a face mask to prevent the emerging corona virus, in light of the increasing voices opposing this, especially among the skeptics of Corona, and concluded that not wearing a muzzle may be a very great risk to life.
And researchers from the “Mayo Clinic” Institute, in a new experiment, found that the muzzle plays a crucial role in transmitting the virus, and they tested most types of masks, from medical to those made of cloth.
And they published a video clip that greatly explains the role that the muzzle plays in limiting the spread of breath drops that may carry the virus during exhalation.
The American “BGR” website published the video, commenting if the mask did not wear Corona after this video, “You are crazy.”
The researchers also tested the role of social distancing in preventing the virus, and found that the more people are separated from each other, the less transmission is, especially if the spacing is combined with wearing a face mask.
“We found that wearing a mask is the most important measure to reduce the risk of infection with the Coronavirus,” said Chief of the Radiology Department, Dr. Matthew Kallstrom.
He added, “We found that the disposable paper masks and masks made of two layers of cloth are effective in reducing the transmission of virus-carrying drops, and we did not find a difference between the types of masks in terms of their effectiveness in preventing aerosol particles emitted by the wearer.”
Kallstrom explained that “the most common method of transmission of the Corona virus is through respiratory droplets, which are larger than aerosols, and are more easily blocked by masks.”
The researchers measured the distance of the transmission of aerosol particles carrying the virus from source to target at different distances, and found that the number of particles decreases as the distance between the source and the target is greater.
