Today I would like to briefly say why you should wear a mask.
I am currently working as a cashier at a convenience store.
When the instructions were first given to use a mask, most of them did not use a mask, and many people were angry at my request to wear a mask. Of course, most of them are doing well now. However, there are still people who only cover their noses, people who only cover their mouths, and sometimes people who only cover their chins. And the most worrisome person is when parents wear masks and children don’t. They wonder if they want their children to get sick or if they have a different purpose.
Here are some reasons to wear a mask.
When talking or coughing, the virus mixed with saliva can be transmitted up to 5M.
Even if I do not have the virus, if the saliva of another person is transmitted to the nose or mouth, it is vulnerable to the virus.
In public places or crowded places due to one virus carrier, many infections can occur at once, so it should be used to prevent the spread.
If you wear a face mask, it’s best not to speak. This is because the mask gets contaminated quickly. But the people who come to the convenience store where I work talk a lot. Wearing a face mask makes it difficult to understand what each other is talking about, and it makes the voices very loud. I wonder if I should quit my job
