Many doctors have been calling on governments to make the wearing of face masks mandatory in public spaces over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Studies show that wearing a mask is effective at preventing coronavirus from spreading when worn by at least 80% of the population.
Not everyone who is infected with the coronavirus disease shows symptoms. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of infections are mild or entirely without symptoms. Research shows that asymptomatic and presymptomatic transmission is a major factor in how the COVID-19 virus spreads.
