After making peace with the WHO on Biden’s orders, Dr. Fauci , the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, said during a meeting that it is “common sense” to wear two protective masks to stop the spread of COVID-19.
In the same logic, wearing three masks is even better, right?
US health officials have long advised people to wear a three-layer protective cloth mask , or a surgical mask, or N95, to protect themselves against the new coronavirus.
According to Fauci, it is a good idea, especially in more crowded places. “If you have a single-layer physical coating, put another layer on, it’s “common sense” and would probably be more effective. That’s why you see people with two masks,” Fauci told NBC News ‘TODAY, according to Business Insider.
Anthony Fauci explained that the new strain of COVID, discovered in South Africa, which is known as 501Y.V2, can avoid antibodies obtained by treatments against the SARS-COV-2 virus. Consequently, this would diminish the effectiveness of vaccines, as preliminary results of some studies show. However, specialists argue that the results need to be analyzed for the theory to be confirmed, CNBC reports.
Although treatments are not as effective against new strains of COVID, they can still provide a degree of protection, argues Dr. Fauci, which reconfirms the importance of vaccines to end the pandemic.
Epidemiologists have warned that new strains of the SARS-COV-2 virus discovered in the UK, South Africa and Brazil are much more contagious, but do not show a higher level of mortality.
Speaking of “more cases” of covid, when in history have overall hospitalizations declined in the middle of winter?
December through February always have the highest fatalities of the year.
That is just the way it is.
