As the coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, a medical expert believes he has the answer to controlling the spread.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director, Robert Redfield, the answer to controlling the spread of the coronavirus is unsurprisingly face masks. Redfield and his fellow CDC colleagues pointed towards several studies that show how wearing masks can significantly reduce the rate the virus is spreading in communities.
Redfield told Dr. Howard Bauchner, JAMA's editor in chief, "The data is clearly there that masking works. If we can get everybody to wear a mask right now, I really do think in the next four, six, eight weeks ... we can get this epidemic under control." In the JAMA publication, Redfield and colleagues say that wearing a mask should be universal as "there is ample evidence" that asymptomatic people are what is causing the virus to keep on spreading among communities.
