(ETH) – Hope you really enjoy wearing your masks? That’s because Health experts are warning that Americans aren’t going to be taking them off any time soon.


According to a new report from Fox News, Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security who has studied pandemics for a great length of time has stated that face coverings are a vital defense to stop the spread of the virus and believes that COVID-19 isn’t going to slow down anytime soon in the U.S. even as states start to slowly reopen. He went on to state that “There’s going to be no summertime lull with a big wave in the fall,” he said as part of CNET’s Hacking the Apocalypse series.

“It’s clear that we are having a significant resurgence of cases in the summer, and they’ll get bigger. And it’ll keep going until we lock things down again.” He went on to emphasize that until there is a vaccine, communities’ best defense to fight it is through creating distance and wearing masks. “I think that mask-wearing and some degree of social distancing, we will be living with — hopefully living with happily — for several years,” he said. “It’s actually pretty straightforward.

If we cover our faces, and both you and anyone you’re interacting with are wearing a mask, the risk of transmission goes way down.” Even Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is a top official handling the U.S. COVID-19 response, recently stated that he was cautiously optimistic that there could be a vaccine for the virus by 2021.
