“…there are not enough masks for everyone…Here, therefore, DIY could come into play: following some precautions, anyone can create a homemade mask, always considering that homemade masks have reduced effectiveness but are still useful as a last minute remedy”

“Coughing and sneezing, but also breathing and speaking, scatter what are called droplets, micro-drops of saliva, which in the case of powerful sneezing can easily reach a meter away, which could contain the virus inside.
