Everyone should wear a face covering in public, says Royal Society president
Everyone should wear a face covering in public to reduce the risk of a second wave of Covid-19 infections, the president of the Royal Society has urged.
Professor Venki Ramakrishnan said people should wear a mask when they leave home – particularly in enclosed indoor spaces – but acknowledged that the public remain “sceptical” about the benefits.
Not wearing them outside the home should be considered as “anti-social” as drink-driving, or failing to wear a seat belt, he said.
