Hello to all, I am launching this campaign to raise money for educating people in the proper, hygienic use of disposable paper face masks.
It now seems that face masks are going to be around for a very long time.They are being made LAW in some places with huge fines if you don't comply. Presumably they are supposed to stop the spread of virus and infection but I constantly see people using these masks in ways that are extremely unhygienic and, instead of preventing infection, they are more likely to spread it further.
When someone has been wearing a mask for even a fairly short time it becomes sweaty, and traps any germs/bacteria/virus against your face and in the mask. The mask is then a hazard to the health of others once removed.
These are the things I routinely see people doing.
1. Entering bars/restaurants and other public places wearing a sweaty mask, and then removing it and putting it in their pocket or wearing it around their neck, under the chin, around the wrist or worst of all placing it on the bar or table.
2. Throwing used masks onto the sidewalk, onto the beach, in the sea or into rivers.
3. Removing sweaty masks and then sneezing without covering their face with their hands.
It's the same as blowing your nose into a tissue and then wearing the tissue round your chin.
EVEN CATS KNOW THIS IS WRONG!
I intend to produce leaflets, information signs, web campaigns, and many other forms of advertising in order to educate both the public, and all establishments/shopping centres/bars/restaurants/train stations..in fact everywhere , on how to properly use face masks.
I also intend to inform the public that there are places where it is completely pointless to be wearing a face mask, for example walking along an empty beach. Breathing in fresh sea air would be healthier.
Please help me to get this important message out there, otherwise we're never gonna live normal lives again..
Thankyou for your help.
