Fact check: A graphic shared on social media falsely suggests that wearing a mask will cause bacterial infections and hypoxia. Reuters has previously debunked claims that masks can cause bacterial infections https://t.co/GdOXcZfLua
@Reuters So wearing the same old dirty mask like a lot of people do is safe? Are you insane? I can understand if we talk about masks with filters that can be replaced, but you talk about a simple piece of cloth. How can that prevent anything?
@Reuters If masks are unsafe why do NHS wear them 24 7 such utter rubbish for goodness sake do the research wear them properly and keep them clean and do not take them off by touching them all over I worked in a clinical environment for many years and I am still here words fail me.
