Finally, we took a step truly innovative science forward in preventing the spread of COVID-19 The impact of this change seems almost too good to be true. We found an instrument of struggle against the disease when used properly, the person from person to be able to drastically reduce the SARS-CoV-2 transmitted virus that causes COVID-19 Studies have shown that this tool could reduce transmission of somewhere between 50% and 85%. The tool is cheap and remarkably low-tech. You can even have a house. It has significant side effects. It shows every day, the effectiveness of scientific research instrument becomes stronger and stronger. If this tool is a vaccine or drug, we would have its high fiving them and popping the champagne, we know they had discovered an important means to help prevent the spread of the pandemic. I speak, of course, on the face cloth masks, surgical or even a scarf. masks block the spread of respiratory droplets that can carry the new coronavirus. But, as with so many other aspects of the response to COVID-19 including ground testing, contact tracing and the rapid deployment of stay-at-home-orders of the Member States once again wasted the opportunity. In many countries that have been successfully controlled their COVID-19 epidemics, public health leaders, politicians and the public fully embraced the use of face masks with no hint of controversy. A recent study found that countries in which the masks were widely used soon after their 19-COVID outbreak began were more likely to maintain their low mortality rate and have a shorter outbreak. Countries such as Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, which quickly adopted masking, along with other control measures such as social distancing and monitoring have reported fewer than following COVID-19 6 deaths per million but in the United States, where the death rate of COVID-19 is now 379 per million people, face masks were used for partisan weapon purposes. Take their signals by President Trump that the bears appear before the camera has rejected a face mask, and said that Americans who wear masks, do to show their rejection of him now see many of his followers a mask as a affront to wear personal freedom. According to the Washington Post, “I am less likely to engage, and Republican voters are more likely to abandon and even despise them.” Republican leaders health officials, the mask funded mandates, their work has to stop after receiving death threats. As a result of these alarming polarization, only 18 states and the District of Columbia are mandating them face masks to the public throughout the state. Only two Massachusetts and Maryland have Republican governors. Meanwhile, many led Republican states seek to undermine local active measures. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts went so far as to say that he denies funds for federal aid Crown by local governments when they try and sent mask use in their work. Reject inevitably masks the COVID means include 19 cases and deaths. A US study found that states with a warrant had estimated a rapid decline in COVID-19 daily growth rates and that the mask use on 450,000 cases of COVID-19 prevented by 22 May 2020. And while researchers Washington University now predict that the United States could reach 180,000 COVID-19 deaths in October, they say, we have these dead, some at least 95% of people could prevent 33,000 to wear a mask than half of new deaths Modellprojekte- . It’s true. We can save the death of 33,000 of our parents, grandparents, siblings, peers, teachers, bus drivers, postmen, nurses and workers and ward only to be attacked by a piece of cloth dollar over the nose and mouth. So what stops us? One problem is the “me first”, that their right to public affairs to go beyond unmasked savings culture in the United States, where anti-Masker statements like life. What we seem to have is that while masks can protect the wearer, the most important reason is to protect the use of others. If you are infected, yet do-not you, that you do not have symptoms ( “asymptomatic infection”) or symptoms ( “” infection pre-symptomatic) have not appeared – a mask reduces risk which is spread other viruses around you. What’s more, the higher the percentage of people wearing masks that reduce the risk that the crown will spread herd immunity after vaccination by the municipality, in a similar way. Once a certain percentage of people will be vaccinated known as the “heart” (eg 95% for measles vaccine), people are not vaccinated are protected. Similarly, the mass masking provides benefits for the entire community. This is why it is so important to take the mask sent to governments and to enforce. Not surprisingly, the rate of mask use is much higher in states with mandates. The highest mask cushion (60% -70%) rates are in northeastern Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, all of which have national mandates. The lowest rates (below 10%) are they not state mandates in Arizona, Indiana and Tennessee. COVID-19 cases, which acted too quickly to open on the rise again in 31 states and is growing exponentially in states of crisis, such as Arizona, Texas and Florida company again. The only way the dramatic increase in this claims to control “humanitarian catastrophe” will lockdowns use full and mandatory social distancing again. masking Masse is not the way to end a great COVID-19 increase Instead, he is one of the ways we can prevent blocking of repeated cycles help and unlocking. There is a lot of evidence from countries around the world, the widespread mask in combination with 2 meters of social distancing, hand washing and the test track and trace allows us the safest things that we so desperately want and They must do: go back to work, reopen schools, see friends and family, and restart our economy. But it did not happen, we must reformulate the use of masks and depoliticize. I encouraged to see some Republicans, including Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even Dick Cheney, publicly support the importance of wearing masks. This support should steam in state legislatures and governorships win. Leaders must remain strong and publicly condemned the spread of misinformation fringe on the masks and openly violating the guidelines for public health. wearing a mask is not a sign of weakness. It is an act of solidarity, an expression that we all Independent Democrats, Republicans and a role in the victory of one of the biggest challenges gaming public health that we face in our lives.
