If you read between the lines, the "official" reccomendation in the states is that you don't need them, but the main reason for this actually seems ot be that they are in such short supply that they need to go to health care workers first. They stay they are "studying it" based on the experience in Japan and South Korea. My bet is that once the shortage is over the reccomendaiton will change.

I'm going by what was recommended and explained by Dr. Hugo López-Gatell. The person in charge of the Mexican federal government's COVID-19 response. Because of the virus' density it doesn't hover in the air like an aerosol but appears to be getting transmitted among the general public by physical contact, not because someone sneezes or coughs into someone's face as may be more likely in a hospital environment. A plastic face-guard would actually protect the general public better.

¿Debo usar cubrebocas?
