In an endeavour to get every single American to wear a face mask to ease the spread of the Coronavirus, the Association of American Medical Colleges has released a straight-forward guide for the general American population

The recommendations are meant to give everybody in America with a unified method for wearing face masks correctly in an attempt to end misinformation and untruths mainly on social media which causes undue hardships and some of which are a danger to life

"Doctor Grover reminded all that until a vaccine has been discovered and implemented to the general population the face mask is the only way to reducing the impact of this pandemic

Grover had some rather startling statistics as to the wearing of a face mask saying that if you and others in your vicinity wear a facemask, then the transmission of the Coronavirus can drop by almost 90% plus a figure which we all have to admit is good for the American population as a whole

The company researching the effectiveness of a face mask is the well respected AAMC, a nonprofit association which represents all of the accredited US and Canadian teaching hospitals, medical schools, academic societies and health systems

The research compiled by the AAMC association assembled the new recommendations utilizing the latest scientific evidence and studies on mask use gleaned by the US Centers for Disease Control and other health professionals

What masks to wear

Their findings indicate that any form of face-covering should cover both your mouth and nose and worn in a way that it minimizes any possible gaps around your chin and nose and if a person is using a face mask made of cloth then it must have a minimum of at least two layers cloth face masks should have at least two layers although a face mask with three layers should give a wearer optimal protection
