It is clear from the huge up spike in some US states of  COVID-19 cases that wearing masks in enclosed public places helps to reduce the spread of the virus. 

States such as New York which mandated wearing masks have seen a weekly 25% decline in new cases whereas state such as Arizona have experienced a 80% surge in new cases.

As we lift our lock down restrictions in the UK we must put in place measures to prevent the virus spreading as it did before.

Our government must act now to ensure that we learn from America's mistake.  It is such a simple thing: cover your face, give people space, keep everyone safe!
