As a physician who faces the risk of contracting the virus every day, I would not be telling the truth if I didn't express frustration.
Selfishly, the more people don't wear masks, the more it puts a growing number of people, including myself, my colleagues and those I love, at greater risk.
But I’d like to make a suggestion: If you believe no one can force you to wear a mask, use your free choice and wear a mask.
Right now, it’s the only thing we really have that can help save your own life and the lives of others.
The more people wear masks, the less chance the virus has to get free and harm others.
