The COVID-19 Masking Mosaic!
The people who live on Planet Earth have been wearing masks for more than two years or are forced to do that due to the COVID-19 disease that appears to be very reluctant to assist in the long-awaited demasking of Homo sapiens. There has been various degrees of protests or complaints as well as deemed-hazards of wearing masks continuously. In a way the citizens are showing signs of an acute mask-fatigue which is actually very unfair to even hint at in view of the pandemic-fatigue experienced by the tirelessly working medical fraternity-particularly during the peak periods like the disastrous Second Wave in India. But the point of view of the people can't be ignored for it is real. In certain instances, the mask-fatigue is causing massive protests/uprisings within the US or even in European countries like Germany. This is why it is our duty to study the reasons behind it while sure enough maintaining our masks of sincerity in place. Visit:- All around us we've been familiar with people masking themselves in most distinctive ways: some have loosened it up a bit so that the nose stays evidently visible, as if the wearer has only just realized the importance of this organ as when inhaling oxygen and exhaling nitrogen is concerned; others are more daring, with it as necklaces that are hung under their chins. Some are the bolder ones keep it in bags or pockets and wearing it whenever the law enforcement authorities arrive; and , like this class, there are others who do it as they enter shopping centers or other places where the "no masks, no entry' signboard is prominently displayed and the first time they walk in, they say to the sellers that they've got masks and are not a problem (in truth, the mostly mask-wearing shopkeepers or sellers do not need to just smile toward them. Instead, they should be able to command, 'if you've got it, why not wear? '). The older citizens haven't complained much since they have come to realize that they're the least susceptible segment of the population to contract the disease. But, the vaccination that comes in the full required doses makes them more confident in starting to complain and not removing the masks. They frequently cite doctors (we're not sure if they were real or fictional) informing them to not wear masks while taking walks in the morning or at night as it may adversely affect the breathing process. But many elders including myself haven't felt any discomfort in taking the walks wearing the masks. Some do not wear it at all and others demonstrate other styles of wearing like making sure the nose is not visible or wearing it as a necklace. Visit:- The males of the young age group happens to be the ultimate example of a group who wears masks with complete disdain, especially after they have been vaccinated. Their instinct to impress those who are more attractive is an important factor since with their faces concealed, they can't in any way afford to display their gorgeous features as well as some other "inspiring" activities or habits. Their 'chivalrous' and "brave display can be seen in the street, in the market, in playgrounds or parks and when they ride their 'brave-heart' racing bikes, not just placing other lives at risk of being injured, as well as infecting others with the same disease. They are referred to as the future of the country but they are unable to comprehend their obligation towards all in families or the others in the community, whether inside or outside. Visit:- The girls of the young age group showed a lot of interest, at the start of the pandemic age as they wore masks. They were eagerly looking for masks that fit their clothes perfect or actively participating in the largest pandemic-related industry of mask-making. As in other cases, their interests changed slowly and gradually by a heightened fear of masks, triggered by similar desires to show their gorgeous countenances with full use of the makeup products like lipstick, which were greatly affected by the pandemic that was lingering. They have ceased wearing the masks, not even following the unique styles of wear since they would impact their appearance in various degrees and make it difficult for them to create the image they desire all around. There is a crucial cause of fatigue in masks that is affecting all of the communities listed that is the long season due to global warming. This causes sweat accumulation in the masks. This causes it to become very uncomfortable to wear them continuously. It is a good idea to carry more than one mask on you? If it becomes uncomfortable, clean your face with a clean handkerchief and put on the second one; we rebut. There are huge quantities of economically affordable masks available in the market. The sweat-factor, however, comes in while traveling/going out without a need and crowding the metro or trains trains or flights, or buses, or even the markets. For instance, it was the Durga Puja celebration, 'eat-only devotees' crowded the fronts of restaurants that were crowded with people throughout India. Indian cities of Kolkata specifically waiting for hours in the dead of the night, and of course, not noticing the masks because of unstoppable sweating, or the fact that they'd need to take off the masks when they get inside to eat. There is an agreement regarding this issue that you should not eat with the masks on. The governments or the authorities are in the process of making the wearing of masks a requirement all the time with some even having to impose penalties for those who violate. Authorities also monitor mask-related behavior and require that you not wear masks that are below your nose , or on necklaces'. But , unfortunately, the citizens on Planet Earth feel that 'enough is enough' and the "unmasking procedure" has to be ushered in via hook or crook. For instance, in India with the Diwali celebration coming up, this mask-fatigue could, on the contrary, usher in another peak of the disease, and could reverse the 'unmasking' process completely, God forbid. States of India have a strict ban on fireworks during the Diwali celebration, but allow "green crackers," the ambiguity of their definition, which results in the typical pollution and a flurry of people with unrestrained 'fire-power such as the one seen this year. Let us conclude by making an acknowledgement that no generalization is intended in this article. Actually, a large portion of the population adheres to norms such as wearing a mask very seriously as do people in all of the communities listed here. The main concern is of the growing numbers of'unmasked Covidiots' across the globe who put the norms-abiding populace at risk. To take a serious tone at the end it has been proven medically that vaccination jabs can't provide complete protection against infection or limit the seriousness of the illness and hospitalizations; however, people who have multiple illnesses and weak immunity remain at a high danger, and young people endanger their lives because they carry the virus and transmitting it.
