With the resurgence of the Corona Virus in a number of areas around the country, Director of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci predicts we will have a number of effective vaccines to help blunt the rate of infections – and those vaccines should be ready by the first of the year.
In the meantime Dr. Fauci strongly urges everyone to wear a facemask when they’re out and about, especially while shopping. Dr. Fauci told a congressional hearing that wearing a facemask slows down the spread of the virus among those who don’t even know they’re carrying it, which is a major cause of the high rate of infections across the country.
In short, when wearing facemasks, fewer mouths spewing the virus means fewer people dying. And those who claim that “This is a free country, I don’t have wear a facemask,” should realize that while it’s illegal to walk down the street firing off a gun, it’s perfectly legal to spread a virus that has killed half-a-million people around the world – 120,000 in the U.S.
Denial is just as deadly as the virus itself.
