You are now going out of your home to meet a friend or relative somewhere
My question is:
Will you wear a mask or not?
In this video I will look into this question
I know how useful the mask is in our daily life
But before I start my experiment
I need to be in a somewhat different place
I’ll be in…. a cafe
In this cafe, I will be wearing a mask
And I will be the one who is not wearing a mask
And I will complete the whole experiment without a mask
I am ready to start the experiment
The idea of the experiment is to measure the ability of the mask to limit the spread of infection
So we tried the mask in three different cases
We brought a model and put the red plate on it in the areas that most capture the infection, specifically in the mouth and nose area.
And we put it one meter away
One time, I talked.
And the second time, I coughed
And the third time, I sneezed
Once without a mask and the other was with a mask
We sent the six samples to the Regional Laboratory in Riyadh
Which is an affiliate of the Ministry of Health and is the largest in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East
In the laboratory the samples were classified
And put it inside the designated incubator
Which helps accelerate the growth of bacteria on the samples during the incubation period
After 48 hours; the samples were out of the laboratory
The difference between wearing a mask and not wearing one was huge.
Before presenting the results, I asked Dr. Alaa Al-Ali
He is the head of the infectious diseases department at King Saud Medical City, the mask.
My question was simply why do we wear the mask?
The mask is one of the means of protection and defence
From this virus
Of course, spray is transmitted between one person and the other
And infection occurs
Therefore, the mask prevents this transmission
It is a simple tool
And an easy way… and really inexpensive
But its results are very significant
I reviewed the results with the doctor
The obvious difference between them
In the upper photos, they are the samples in which I was wearing a mask
As for the below photos, they were without a mask.
As you can see
It is quite clear that with the mask
Whether in talking.
Or coughing. or sneezing
The results are healthy, Praise Be to Allah.
But .. in the absence of the mask
There was no filter or any cover to block that spray
Note that talking, coughing, and sneezing
All spread infection
The experience that you have done..
Truly! is proof, which I believe that no one can do
To prove to people the importance of the mask
The mask is very important
The next time you think of removing the mask, remember these results
You know that it is the slogan of society now
“To Return Cautiously”
We need more interest in the topic of caution
Wearing a mask is very important… for every person and for others
We hope that there is commitment
We hope that the number of cases continues to decrease
Because of this awaited awareness,
