The outbreak of the contagious Coronavirus, the government has issued us to all wear masks to combat the spread of the virus. The mask should be a basic precaution for outside activities in heavily populated areas. To me, the mask is a very important factor when it comes to public health and environment. Germs and bacteria should be kept to the carrier and should not be spread around.
