There has been a ginormous surge in coronavirus cases, the demand for masks have soared in all markets across the country. People are purchasing masks hoping to protect themselves from the reach of Covid-19, but there are still a few particles that may combat the shield of masks.
While before trusting a mask in hoping we can be saved from coronavirus? One needs to know in details about the trusted mask:
- If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected Covid-19 illness.
- Remember, tiny viral particles, known as aerosols, can enter masks.
- But masks can capture droplets from a cough or a sneeze.
- Studies have shown that masks are a protective barrier. But they make little difference if you are out for a walk around town.
A new study on coronavirus claims that the disease may not be spread through tears, contrary to what some reports had claimed earlier. According to the study, the virus can enter a non-infected person’s body via eyes, but it may not spread through tears of an infected patient.
The study was published in the journal Ophthalmology, where researchers have said that it is absolutely clear that the virus spread through mucus and droplets expelled by coughing or sneezing, but if it spreads through other bodily fluids like tears, etc is still unclear.
