One of such non-factual statements is that wearing masks for longer duration impacts health as the amount of CO2 level in the breathable air around a person increases.
A day before, news agency ANI had shared a video on social media where a senior Congress leader was informing the media that prolonged wearing of masks is not advisable. “When you use masks for a longer duration you tend to inhale the same CO2 that you are exhaling. It is not good for health,” the Congress MLA from Jamtara, Jharkhand, who is also a MBBS doctor, said.
On wearing masks many experts and researchers have given several recommendations; but everyone corroborates that this is so far the ultimate armour against COVID-19 infection.
