Winter like then? – Even more Corona pitfall: (no) comeback of masks


Will mouth and nose protection return next winter?

For two winters, corona masks determined daily life in Austria. After the government declared that the virus was over and also stopped free testing, the pandemic became quiet in the summer.

The wave of disease is coming
But local health experts warn: next winter and the next wave of disease will definitely come. Opinions are divided on whether this will mean a comeback for masks. In a letter to the medical association, about fifteen top doctors call for the return of FFP2 masks, at least at ordinations and hospitals. The federal government will of course be careful not to issue any regulations a year before the planned elections for the National Council…

The fact is that starting school after the summer holidays or moving activities indoors when temperatures drop will increase the number of colds and viruses.
