It is also informative to know that until recently, the CDC did not issue a PSA or recommend wearing a face mask or covering of any kind unless a person was known to be infected.
People who are not infected need not wear a mask. When a person has TB it is advised that they wear a mask, not the entire public of non-infected. The recommendations by the CDC and the WHO are not based on any studies of this virus and have never been used to contain any other virus pandemic or epidemic in world history.
