Anthony Fauci, one of the scientists who leads the team against COVID-19 from the White House, assured that the use of the mouth mask is a symbol of good practice

Disputes about the use of mouth covers in United States continue but Anthony Fauci, one of the scientists who leads the team against the coronavirus COVID-19 from the White House, assured that the use of this is a symbol of good practice.

In an interview with CNN, Fauci affirmed that the mask is effective, although not the only way to counteract the spread of COVID-19, but it also implies respect for the other person and that whoever is nearby respects the rest. By using all masks there is community protection.

He stressed that in addition to using it out of consideration for the rest, he uses it as a “symbol” for people to observe what must be done to take care of themselves.

This marks a new difference between Fauci’s statements and Donald trump, President of United States, who refuses to use face masks and criticized people who use it, such as Joe Biden at Monday’s Memorial Day ceremony or a reporter who asked him to remove it and later pointed out that he wanted to be “politically correct,” to which the respondent refused.

The president wanted to give an image of normality in the country and asked his team to also stop wearing face masks in front of the press photos, at least at the ceremony this Monday, although some positive cases have already been recorded in the White House due to illness.

During the interview, Fauci added that the debate on whether or not to celebrate party conventions, both Democrats and Republicans should review the conditions of the states where they will hold them.

He recommended that the parties reserve their comments, since the progress of the disease should be analyzed for the dates on which they are scheduled, which corresponds to the last days of August.

This question arose because Trump threatened the state of North Carolina that he could remove the convention because there was still no chance to fill an arena. For their part, the Democrats raised the possibility of doing it via streaming to prevent contagion from increasing.
