Research has indicated that wearing face masks can help in limiting the exposure of the Covid virus and in turn generate an immune response in the body.

Masks can help in increasing asymptomatic cases and slow the spread of the disease.

Adam Ozimek, chief economist at Upwork, shared an article on how wearing masks can help in providing immunity against the Covid-19 virus.

Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine notes that wearing masks can help in reducing the severity of the virus.

Wearing a mask can help in creating a form of inoculation that can generate immunity against the virus and slow its spread as a vaccine is awaited.
