COVID-19: People Will Have To Wear Masks For Many Years To Come, Scientists Say

The second wave of Coronavirus in America is still on the rise, and there are still people who refuse to take it seriously and avoid wearing masks.

Consider that Coronavirus cases are decreasing in almost every country in the world, except USA and India. Because these are the only two countries where people are so thick-headed and ignorant to even admit that the virus is real, and most of them don’t wear masks.

We will have to wear masks for years

In the midst of all this pandemonium, health experts have declared that we might have to wear masks for years to come, and there will be no time soon enough which will make it safe to not wear masks.

Wear a mask: Coronavirus vanishes the fastest and the fewer people die

This is the opinion of senior scholars at the John Hopkins Center for Health Security – there are the people who have been working on preparing for viral pandemics for years and they recently ran a simulation that shows people will be needing masks for the foreseeable future.

Many of their Coronavirus pandemic simulations found that the virus is not going away for years, and there will always be the threat of the pandemic bouncing back to kill more people even if there is a single person in the world who is untreated.

The simulations run through different situations and map the responses of the citizens and government and healthcare infrastructure to calculate how long the pandemic would last.

Under all the circumstances, it was found that the fastest way to achieve a Coronavirus-free society is when all people are wearing masks. It was also the scenario with the fewest possible deaths.

The researchers have said this in words as clear as possible:

“There’s going to be no summertime lull with a big wave in the fall. It’s clear that we are having a significant resurgence of cases in the summer, and they’ll get bigger. And it’ll keep going until we lock things down again.”

According to the scientists, until and unless a vaccine is found – people will have no choice other than to practice social distancing and wear masks.

“I think that mask wearing and some degree of social distancing, we will be living with — hopefully living with happily — for several years,”

He said , “It’s actually pretty straightforward. If we cover our faces, and both you and anyone you’re interacting with are wearing a mask, the risk of transmission goes way down.”

They also said that people who refuse to wear a mask will eventually learn their lessons.

“They will get over it. It’s just a question of how many people get sick and die before they get over it.”
