Mass wearing of masks reduces infections. Experts from Germany conducted a study,, which proves this.
According to the scientific portal PNAS, German scientists analyzed the incidence statistics in Germany. Experts concluded that masks are effective in reducing the infection rate among the population. According to their calculations, the daily increase in the number of cases decreases by 47% if such a collective security measure is observed.
They cited Jena as an example, where all have been to wear masks since the beginning of April this year. As a result, the incidence was almost zero. In other regions of Germany, where the general wearing of masks has also been introduced as a rule, a decrease was also recorded in the number of coronavirus cases.
As of December 8, Germany is 11th in the ranking for the number of infected people worldwide.
