Protective masks reduce the strength of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus by a thousand times This is another study that clearly shows that it is worth wearing a protective mask, not only for your safety, but also for concern for other people.

Recently, we could see the results of research by Japanese scientists who used the world's most powerful supercomputer, called Fugoku, in their experiments. And now scientists from Italy have published their research. In both cases, we get confirmation that protective masks are the most effective weapon in the fight against CoVID-19.

The results of the research from Italy have just appeared in the pages of Clinical Microbiology and Infection. They were performed at the Sacro Cuore Don Calabria hospital in Negrar in the north of the country. There, 373 people who were infected with SARS-CoV-2 between March and May this year were analyzed.

Doctors examined the scale of coronavirus infection in each person, and then constantly monitored the course of the disease and the emerging symptoms. It turns out that people who were ill in May and were transported to the hospital had a much lower "concentration" of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in their bodies than those who came to this medical facility in March.

The researchers said unequivocally that the difference was that the government introduced a lockdown in May and required face masks, social distancing and frequent disinfection. As a result, the virus had significantly more difficult conditions to spread. It is also not without significance that after the introduction of strict restrictions, hospitals breathed a sigh of relief, as the number of people who required hospitalization began to drop automatically.

Let's take to heart the opinions of scientists and doctors who are on the front lines of the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. If we want to defeat the pandemic quickly, we torrent links catalog follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Health. Although the number of infections in Poland is growing day by day and breaking records, scientists believe that it could have been 2-3 times higher if the restrictions were not applied. It's also important to wear masks correctly, as 80 percent of people don't do it correctly.
