Description:

UCLA's Dr. Anne Rimoin joins to discuss the importance wearing face masks will continue to have in fighting the coronavirus pandemic. Aired on 05/22/2020.


Susan Page joins to discuss the president's resistance to wearing a face mask and the fact that has become another issue division for Americans on opposite sides of the political divide. Aired on 05/15/2020.
According to CDC and World Health Organization guidelines, only the sick, and their caretakers, should wear face masks. Here's why University of San Francisco research scientist Jeremy Howard thinks otherwise.
The WHO says it does not generally recommend the wearing of face masks in public.

STICK TO MY PREVIOUS REMARKS
ABOUT THIS, BRIAN.
>> I GET IT.
ANNE RIMOIN, FINAL WORD.
MASKS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
HELP PEOPLE FIGURE OUT WHAT
THEY’RE -- HOW THEY PRESENT TO
THE WIDER WORLD WHEN THEY LEAVE
THEIR HOMES.
>> MASKS ARE GOING TO BE A
CRITICAL STRATEGY GOING FORWARD.
WE ARE OPENING UP WITHOUT ALL OF
THESE THINGS WE’VE DISCUSSED,
WITHOUT VACCINE, WITHOUT
THERAPEUTICS, WITHOUT ADEQUATE
TESTING.
WE DO KNOW THAT THERE IS A LARGE
PROPORTION OF INDIVIDUALS WHO
ARE GOING TO BE ASYMPTOMATICALLY
INFECTED.
WHAT THAT MEANS IS I DON’T KNOW
IF YOU’RE INFECTED.
YOU DON’T KNOW IF I’M INFECTED.
AND IN THAT CASE, THE BEST WAY
THAT WE CAN GO FORWARD IS IF
EVERYBODY KEEPS THEIR DROPLETS
TO THEMSELVES.
AND THE WAY TO DO THAT IS TO
WEAR A MASK AND TO BE SOCIALLY
DISTANT, AND OF COURSE THAT IN
COMPLEMENT WITH HAND HYGIENE,
WASHING YOUR HANDS AND DOING ALL
OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE BEEN
SAYING ALL ALONG.
IT’S THE BLUNT PUBLIC HEALTH
MEASURES THAT ARE GOING TO MAKE
THE DIFFERENCE AND SAVE THE DAY
HERE AS WE OPEN UP.
PLEASE, EVERYBODY WEAR A MASK.
KEEP YOUR DROPLETS TO YOURSELF.
>> IN OTHER WORDS, I’VE HEARD IT
SAID THAT WE SHOULD ALL ACT AS
