5 Reasons All Aussies Should Wear Masks

World opinion shifts in favour of masks as virus fight deepens.

“The benefits of wearing face masks are clear” – Dr Beng Goh – Emeritus consultant physician, Royal London Hospital

1. Despite current Federal Govt advice recommending masks only for those with symptoms, those without symptoms can still be infected – a study from Iceland showed that roughly half of all people with COVID-19 did not show symptoms.

France is the latest country to do a U-turn, joining others such as the US, Austria and Singapore in advising the public to wear face masks that have long been used in Asia and could reduce coronavirus risk.

With the number of coronavirus cases surging in the US, the country is now advising people to wear face masks when out in public.

The United States is now urging people to wear face masks when they go outside amid growing evidence suggests that even a simple cloth mask can be an effective tool against the coronavirus if it is used correctly, according to health experts.


2. Masks prevent disease-causing droplets from breathing, sneezing and coughing.

The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reversed its long-standing position on face masks last week – telling Americans they should now wear one when they go outside.In a 2013 study by Overalresearchers found masks led to a more than threefold reduction in how much virus people sprayed into the air.


3. Masks help protect your peers as well as yourself – hence the slogan of the #Masks4All movement – “My mask protects you, your mask protects me”

However, Jason Wang, a physician and director of Center for Policy, Outcomes and Prevention at Stanford University, said growing evidence about the nature of SARS-CoV-2, the highly-infectious virus associated with COVID-19, suggests masks may be necessary at all times when in social settings.


4. Masks have the added benefit of constraining the spread of other viruses such as flu

Some countries have already made it mandatory to wear masks in public – no one in the Chinese city of Wuhan where the outbreak began late last year was allowed onto the street without one amid a strictly-enforced quarantine – while other governments, such as Singapore, distribute a set of masks to each household.


5. Whilst some governments claim there is not enough conclusive evidence to say that masks reduce the spread of COVID-19, there is at this time no evidence to the contrary

Some countries have made it mandatory for people to wear face masks when outside. A media campaign in Czech Republic led to the creation of millions of homemade masks in less than a week, normalising their use and leading to a decrease in infection rates by protecting each other from the droplets we unwittingly spread. That campaign called #masks4all is now sweeping the world.
