President Trump has been taking a lot of airtime for his slow response in handling the coronavirus outbreak. Trump made some outrageous comments about the virus. On one occasion, he said - “It will disappear, it’s like magic. It’s going to disappear one day.” President Trump, on Wednesday, advised that wearing a scarf on the face to prevent the spread. The effectiveness of using a scarf is still unknown. In his daily press briefings, President was asked whether the public should be wearing masks instead of protective gear as the gear was in shortage for the health care workers.
The President responded that it wouldn’t cause much harm to the people to wear masks, but scarves could be a perfect substitute. “It doesn’t need to be a mask. It can be a scarf. What I do see people doing here is using scarves, and I think in a certain way, a scarf is better depending on the fabric,” said President Trump. However, as of now, there is no concrete evidence to support Trump’s claims that scarf is a better alternative than face masks in protecting against coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists some of the items like bandannas and scarves as homemade face protection units. But they need to be used only as a last resort for health care workers who are exposed to the virus when proper protection gear is out of supply. The CDC also specifies that cloth substitutes can’t be termed as personal protective equipment (PPE) because of their unknown capability of protecting the health care workers.
