Face Masks and the Second Wave
In the last 6 weeks the global number of confirmed Covid-19 cases had doubled to 20 million.
World wide, the control of the pandemic is incredibly bad. Just terrible!
In Canada however, our new case numbers are far down the slope - at 1/10 of their peak,
and new case numbers have levelled out,
In Dufferin we have had less than one new case every few days for the last month.
Recently, wearing a face mask has become the new normal.
The timing could not be better.
We now know that taking a “covid history” of a recent cough or fever will not identify the majority of new infections.
The majority of infected persons do not have symptoms!
This knowledge makes social distancing and the wearing of a face mask
of critical importance in controlling this pandemic.
Let's keep up the pressure.
We can prevent a second wave!
