Scientists have created masks only for the nose: you can drink and eat with them
Researchers in Mexico have created a new nose-only mask for COVID-19. It should be used when a person is eating. Writes about it New York Post.
Nose masks are worn as usual - with straps behind the ears, it is recommended to wear them under a large mask. The new development was shown in a demo video in which a man and a woman are dining at a table wearing miniature masks on their noses.
In the video, the couple takes off their usual masks, and under them - special for the nose.
Some users praised the idea on Twitter, noting that it would "reduce the transmission of the virus," while others ridiculed the silly appearance of such masks.
On the subject: CDC allowed vaccinated people not to wear masks
"This is hardly a new invention, because clowns have worn them a long time ago," one user wrote along with a photo of a bright red clown nose.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the human cells that give humans the sense of smell are a key entry point for the coronavirus, making nasal coverings important.
But the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that people wear masks that cover their nose, mouth and chin to better protect themselves from the virus.

Monitoring by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shown that the more material is used for the mask, the better. Last month, a CDC study confirmed that wearing two masks could significantly reduce the spread of the coronavirus. And if you also wear a nose mask under them, it turns out that for better protection, a person needs to wear 3 masks at the same time.
The report did not mention the names of the Mexican researchers, their company, or the time when nasal masks might go public.
