“The advantage of wearing a face mask is that it protects you from contracting Covid-19 and spreading it in case you have it. Since we know that it can spread through respiratory droplets, and given we use our nose and mouth to breath if we wear face masks, it will prevent us from contracting or spreading it to others. There are many people who refuse to wear the face masks properly and others who refuse to wear them entirely due to different reasons. Some people have sinusitis which prevents them from breathing normally, and thus decide not to wear a face mask because it bothers them. There are other people who say a face mask brings too much warmth which forces them to remove it or wear it improperly.”
