How to make a protective mask from a T-shirt and two elastics? It takes 45 seconds to complete

Dr Jerome Adams works for American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He showed in a short film how to make a simple and effective mask from things that we have at home without the slightest doubt.

Tomorrow we will not be able to leave the house without a mask. From April 16, until further notice, an obligation to cover the mouth and nose in public space is imposed. It is recommended to wear specialized medical masks, however, it is not mandatory - you can also use a scarf, apron or anything that will stop the spread of droplets when you sneeze.

Masks are primarily intended to protect us, not people in our immediate surroundings. It is worth remembering that in many people coronavirus infection, in particular its initial phase, does not give any symptoms. That is why, even if we feel healthy and full of strength, we will have to cover the mouth and nose.

It is not difficult to guess that specialized masks will become a very scarce commodity. Fortunately, a specialist from a health organization enjoying great trust - the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - recorded a short film in which it shows how to make the right mask at home in a few dozen seconds.

And it's ready! We've gained something, we've lost something. We are richer with a sufficient and efficient mask that will help us to limit the spread of this disease. We are poorer for an excuse, I do not have time and money to hunt for masks . And so it was miserable.
