President Trump is under constant criticism for his handling of the CCP Virus, and his latest message about the wearing of masks is sure to incite the left, even if they secretly agree with him.
The Trump campaign sent an email on Monday, Aug. 3, and the president suggested wearing a mask is “something we should all try to do.”
“Friend,” the letter begins, “I know how difficult the past few months have been. Your unwavering support during this time has not gone unnoticed.” This email is not asking for a “contribution,” this time, President Trump is asking his supporters for co-operation, reported Breitbart.
“We are all in this together,” the email, signed by Trump, continued, “and while I know there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks, I think it’s something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others.”
“I don’t love wearing them either,” Trump admitted in the letter, reported by Breitbart. “Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great,” he allowed. “They can possibly help us get back to our American way of life that so many of us rightfully cherished before we were so terribly impacted by the China Virus.”
With over 30 states, Washington, D.C., and multiple major cities requiring the mandatory wearing of masks in public, the president’s message reinforces the need to use a mask as a precautionary method to help stop the spread of the virus that is taking the lives of so many, especially the elderly and infirm.
It is still unknown how much the masks will help, and shifting guidelines may have sown confusion among the public about their usefulness.
However, health experts agree the evidence is clear that masks can help prevent the spread of the CCP Virus and that the more people wearing masks, the better.
University of California, San Francisco infectious disease specialist Peter Chin-Hong, M.D., said the mask needs to cover both the nose and mouth.
“I think the biggest thing with COVID [CCP Virus] now that shapes all of this guidance on masks is that we can’t tell who’s infected,” said Chin-Hong. “You can’t look in a crowd and say, oh, that person should wear mask. There’s a lot of asymptomatic infection, so everybody has to wear a mask.”
The mask can protect the nose and mouth. However, the virus can enter the body through the eyes, but wearing a mask will reduce your risks of becoming infected. And you will be helping others stay safe, as it reduces their incidence of becoming infected too.
