During my medical school days, facemask was a part of operation theatre apparel. Even the intensivist at ICU would adorn a facemask.
Facemask would never be worn in the public unless it was medically necessary. The cancer patients would be required to wear a facemask to prevent infections.
The coronavirus pandemic has pushed everyone to wear it all the time. Facemask in the public wasn’t adviced in the initial phase of the pandemic.
As the pandemic began to spread across the nations then the countries began to issue the public advisory for compulsory facemask.
Some people aren’t serious about its correct usage. When facemask is used, it must cover mouth as well as nose. Often people cover mouth and leave nose open.
The facemask should not be touched by your hands. It looses it’s protective property after 3-4 hours. It has to be replaced with fresh one after that period.
If it becomes wet with sweat or water, then it needs to be replaced.
It has to be safely disposed. It is an infectious material for other humans. It needs to be taken care during its storage and final disposition.
Matthew 15:11 (CJB): “What makes a person unclean is not what goes into his mouth; rather, what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him unclean!”
The Holy Bible talks about the spiritual uncleanliness caused by our words (breath). If our mouth is used for wrong purposes it can bring uncleanliness.
Similarly, the breath containing virus can cause the Covid-19 sickness. Be careful to keep it covered so that we can prevent harm to self and others.
Bless you in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.
