Please know whenever anyone decides not to #WearAMask, they’re endangering themselves, along with everyone around them.

The best way to enforce an international mask-wearing mandate, it appears to most folk who we have heard from, would be if there were a database where people worldwide could take a photo of the culprits and load it along with a geographical identification.

Mask Wearing makes sense and public health officials have urged everyone to take three simple steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19: wear a mask, practice physical distancing, and wash hands whenever possible.

We agree that people across the world to continue to practice safety measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.

This campaign aims to offer resources on proper mask-wearing and care practices in addition to advice from health leaders to better equip our nation with the information they need to keep themselves, their family, and their communities safe.

We encourage all people to follow science: continue social distancing, washing hands for at least 20 seconds, and most importantly, to wear a face-covering when outside the home.

The coronavirus death totals are staggering: Recently, we lost more than 4,000 Americans in one day to COVID-19. Left uncounted are the thousands of people who got #COVID and survived, only to be left with long-lasting symptoms. Now, a new study involving 3,762 "long haulers" for that is what those people have been dubbed has pinpointed the most common signs of long COVID, including those related to gastrointestinal illness.

According to Yale University researchers, In spring 1957, tens of thousands of refugees in Hong Kong fell ill with a novel strain of the flu. The virus would spread around the world, the first global outbreak since the 1918 flu pandemic and the first test of a fledgling early warning system. More than one million people died, 116,000 of them in the United States. But schooling, shopping, and sporting events went on as normal, and that pandemic largely faded from public memory.
