Regarding the nCoV2019 virus this time, she wrote an article about her experience and knowledge in the face of infectious diseases. In the article, he mentioned that wearing gloves and washing hands frequently in the face of the spread of the virus is more important than wearing a mask!
In real life, no matter what kind of pneumonia, it will be infected by droplets. Because droplets are very heavy, they will not spread in the air, so the chance of people inhaling these bacteria directly into the body is very low. But the bacteria in the droplets can stay on the surface of any public goods for 24 hours and are still very active. Studies have shown that an ordinary person touches the face 10 times an hour. Once your hands are contaminated, you touch your eyes/nose/ Mouth, you will be in danger. This is why in the early stages of SARS, even though medical staff were wearing N95 masks, they were still infected with the disease.
Therefore, in the face of this epidemic, for the health of yourself and others, please wear disposable gloves while wearing a mask in your daily life.
