Western countries are experiencing higher rates of COVID-19 infections compared to Asian countries because of the West's aversion to wearing masks. We need universal mask-wearing to aid in lowering COVID-19's virality.

We are asking the UK government to make wearing masks when outside the house mandatory. We can hand-make them for ourselves and others at home - and even sew some for the NHS!

The official stance against mask-wearing because of its ineffectiveness in lowering COVID-19 cases is not backed by any research

We need to set the record straight on masks because the research shows the effectiveness of mask wearing. 

Why masks lower COVID-19 deaths

  • Decreasing virus spread by infected individuals. The mask traps virus particles on the inside, preventing the virus particles becoming airborne. Protect others.
  • Decreasing new infections by uninfected individuals. The mask prevents airborne virus particles being inhaled from the outside. Protect yourself.
  • Limiting hand to face contact. The mask puts a physical barrier between potentially contaminated hands and passages to one's lungs.

We need to increase these virality-decreasing pathways by encouraging a universal mask-wearing protocol to fight COVID-19.
