The Big Q: Are there benefits to wearing a face mask in this crisis?

Scroll down for the good news, share with your friends and relatives.

The Big A: According to US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, wearing a mask may actually increase your risk of infection, as most people will touch their face even more frequently when wearing 1.

The CDC only recommends surgical masks for:

  • People who are symptomatic, as the mask will inhibit the spread of the virus if you cough or sneeze into the mask
  • Caregivers for infected patients

Mayo Clinic infectious diseases specialist Dr. Nipunie Rajapakse explains:

“The current recommendations regarding masks are that if you yourself are sick with fever and cough, you can wear a surgical mask to prevent transmission to other people.

If you are healthy, there is not thought to be any additional benefit to wearing a mask yourself because the mask is not airtight and does not necessarily prevent breathing in of these viral particles, which are very tiny.”

The CDC also does not recommend that the general public wear N95 respirators, which are designed to be tight-fitting and capable of filtering out at least 95% of much smaller (0.3 micron in size) airborne particles.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:

For the general American public, there is no added health benefit to wear a respiratory protective device (such as an N95 respirator), and the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low.”

From all of the hyped up fear in the MSM, you would not think the health risk from COVID-19 was “considered low“.

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has inflected about 185,000 people worldwide and killed about 7,300, according to data from Johns Hopkins University Tuesday.
