As the positive coronavirus cases have been increasing dramatically in the past few days in Canada, a lot of citizens are starting to get vigilant about the situation and worrying about its future outbreak. At the same time, people who moved to Canada from Asian countries like China, Korea, and Japan have been getting news report about the seriousness outbreak that's going on in their home countries.

Health professionals and authorities in Asian countries have been recommending for putting on a mask as a preventive way of the Coronavirus. However, we have seen a lot of people being discriminated by wearing a mask in the past few weeks in Canada. People being rude to those who chose to wear masks, especially some of them are intentionally coughing loudly in front of the ones that having a mask on.

It is one's freedom to choose to wear a mask and we do not want to force other people to put it on. Nevertheless, we strongly urge the Canadian government to acknowledge the effectiveness about using a mask, since there are huge discrimination going on around this issue. 

It is important to acknowledge that although the masks does not provide perfect protection around the virus, it is clear that wearing mask as an effective way to reduce the risk of catching Coronavirus, and it is because masks are effective at capturing droplets - a main transmission route of coronavirus.
