In the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor, a study was conducted, the result of which showed that people wearing medical masks in public places were less likely to contract respiratory infections than those who neglected this rule. With their use, the risk of penetration of ARVI pathogens into the body decreased by 1.8 times. Gloves significantly reduced the likelihood of contracting an infection by 1.3 times.
Medical devices also protect in contact with an already sick person: masks minimize the risk by 1.8 times, and gloves – 2.7 times. It is important that the mask fits snugly to the face and does not leave gaps. After the first use, it must be disposed of in a bag.
The ability of the coronavirus to cause mental disorders has been previously reported.
