Deputy Head of the Ministry of Health Oleg Salagay added "his own five cents" to the dispute about the need to wear masks for those who have had coronavirus or were vaccinated.
“Not wearing masks for those who have had covid is about the same as not washing their hands for those who have had rotavirus,” Salagay wrote in his Telegram channel.
It's not just about immunity, the deputy head of the Ministry of Health said. First, the infection is still poorly understood. Therefore, according to Salagai, one should not be imprudent.
Secondly, the mask protects not only from coronavirus, but also from other diseases transmitted by airborne droplets. Thirdly, it is demonstrativeness.
“Something similar is to smoke in a public place: maybe the smoker in particular will not die of cancer, but it may well involve a dozen of those who will die. Therefore, it is absolutely correct to wear masks by everyone, and not only selectively by those who were sick / did not get sick, walked / didn’t walk, were vaccinated / didn’t get vaccinated,”Salagay specified.
He also noted another very important point. “It is associated with the gradual formation of an important habit of behavioral immunity in our country - wearing masks during the epidemic rise of diseases transmitted by airborne droplets. In many countries, this is the perfect rule. This helps to preserve the life and health of hundreds of thousands of people,”concluded Salagay.
