An American epidemiologist: the most effective method for corona prevention

Brendon Brown, the epidemiologist at the University of California School of Medicine in the American Riverside, considered a medical mask as a better safeguard against the Coronavirus.

Brown, during his participation in a scientific conference held on Wednesday on “Medical Express”, where he gave his evaluation of the preventive measures against the spread of the disease, that the use of medical masks helps a lot in preventing infection because it allows avoiding unintended touches to the face, which is the most prominent way for the infection to reach the human body.

The American scientist pointed out that the use of gloves with this goal is futile, indicating that it does not prevent people from touching their faces.

And that people always try to unintentionally touch their faces, and this is usually difficult to control, and this always happens even if gloves are worn.

“This process is normal, and it happens regardless of whether we want it or not,” Brown said.

The American scientist stressed, however, the need to clean and disinfect hands very accurately, stressing that the virus cannot live in these conditions.

Since January 2020, the world has been facing a deteriorating crisis caused by the outbreak of the newly created Coronavirus “COVID-19”, which started spreading since December 2019 from Wuhan, China and led to huge losses in many sectors of the economy, especially transport, tourism and entertainment, and the collapse of global exchanges. The fall in energy markets has accelerated.

The World Health Organization has classified coronavirus as a new epidemic and has recorded more than 1.453 million cases of this strain in nearly 180 countries worldwide, including 83.6 thousand deaths and 310 thousand cured.
