Editor’s Note: As Steve Leimberg was fine tuning his photographs from Tanzania, he sent us this photo and asked to have our readers visualize the flies as the Coronavirus trying to infect us all. Once you grasp the imagery, ask yourself, “Would you wear a face mask?”
Steve Leimberg provided us with information on two reports regarding mask to share with our readers.
One is an alarming report in the Journal Nature Medicine which said, “If mask wearing is 49% through Feb (what Americans are doing now), and states continue with removing social distancing mandates, the Covid-19 death toll across the United States could reach about 1 million deaths by Feb. 28th.”
Another report from CNN which shows the benefit of mask wearing said a recent modeling study suggests, “If 95% of Americans wore masks in public, more than 100,000 lives could be saved from Covid-19 through February . . .”
The State of Florida is approaching a milestone of 800,000 cases of Coronavirus, and the number of new daily cases are rising in the state. Today’s data shows 5,444 cases.
