The results of the study, researchers from the University of Nicosia in Cyprus.
Scientists from the University of Nicosia in Cyprus has conducted a study that showed that infected droplets can be transmitted through the air from one person to another, even if both in medical masks. For that, people need to be at a distance from each other not more than five feet, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to t.ks.ua.
If the person is coughing regularly, using a mask, it becomes even less effective in protecting others from infection. All this underlines the need to respect the distance of 2-3 m between people, which is practiced in some countries. Note that in Ukraine a safe distance set at five feet.
In the UK it is two meters, but the Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing unprecedented pressure from business, especially the hospitality industry.
He is required to immediately repeal the rule, because compliance even in the short term will lead to the ruin hotels, airlines, cafes, restaurants and similar establishments. In them the observance of a distance of 2 m will reduce the loading by approximately 50%, and a direct path to bankruptcy, if the authorities do not compensate for the shortfall in income.
Interestingly, a few weeks ago, the world health organization is not recommend healthy people wear medical masks.
It was alleged that they makes breathing difficult, lead to the accumulation of dust, fungi, dirt, dangerous for victims of asthma and COPD, and other lung diseases and allergies.
Masks are advised to wear only the people with symptoms of colds, but now it is proved that asymptomatic carriers COVID-19 can infect others even talking. They don’t have to cough and sneeze.
