Masks, respirators, and coronavirus: Catching up to the changing advice
As state and federal officials continue to ramp up efforts to control the outbreak of coronavirus in the United States, new information about the virus — in particular the potential for transmission by people without symptoms — is raising new questions about the official messaging on the use of face masks during this pandemic. In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb suggested that evidence that the virus can be spread by asymptomatic people undermines the official position maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that masks should only be worn by the sick. "If the concern is that asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic younger Americans (millennials) are continuing to spread #Coronavirus because they don't heed warnings, you could require anyone between certain ages to wear a procedure mask when they go out," wrote Gottlieb. Procedure masks, similar to surgical masks, are general-use medical face masks that attach to the back of the head or ears with straps and are used to catch bacteria released from the wearer's mouth or nose.
