AccuWeather CEO Shares, Americans may need to wear masks for up to 18 months

Americans may need to wear masks

Americans may need to wear masks for up to 18 months, Yale expert says AccuWeather CEO and Founder Dr. Joel N. Myers said, “When somebody says you should wear a mask for 12-18 months, we should say, ‘Wait a minute. It depends. If you’re in New York City, yeah, probably so.”

AccuWeather Global Weather Center – April 2, 2020 – Health officials across the United States did an about-face on face coverings last week as pressure mounted from experts in the medical community. Now a top Yale University doctor is suggesting Americans should get used to the idea of wearing face masks well into next year to curtail COVID-19 spread.

 

Americans may need to wear masks

After more than a month of consistent messaging from health organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Surgeon General and even President Donald Trump that face masks were unnecessary and ineffective at preventing coronavirus transmission, the CDC reversed its guidelines on April 3 and began suggesting that Americans should consider wearing face coverings in certain public settings.

Days earlier, President Trump insisted that if the guidance for mask-wearing were to become necessary, masks would only be needed for a short time. However, Dr. Shan Soe-Lin told AccuWeather she has a very different prognostication.
