While most people seem to understand the importance of wearing a mask in today's current climate, there has been a growing concern about anti-maskers and lockdown-breakers.

And now, one previously anti-mask TikToker has made an important plea to her followers...

Over recent months, our lives have changed completely.

A pandemic has taken over.

However, in the past few weeks, little bits of normality have been appearing...

With things beginning to slowly reopen again.

But while things are getting back to normal, we must still take precautions...

And that includes the use of face masks.

Throughout the last few months, face masks have become the norm...

And they are now mandatory in most public spaces and transport.

But there are issues with face masks that many people have discovered...

Some masks have been found to be incredibly harmful to the environment, with thousands already littering our oceans.

But the other issue is that many people have discovered how uncomfortable face masks can be.

Particularly when they are worn for a long period of time.

They can also make it hard to breathe whilst wearing.

You may think the uncomfortable nature is a small price to pay for the safety they could provide.

But obviously, there has been an ongoing debate as to whether they actually provide enough protection.

The world seems to be divided on the issue, with lots of people claiming that the masks are in fact only an accessory used to control the masses.

And that's why many are refusing to wear them.

Anti-lockdown protests have been taking place, even since the President shut the country down a few months ago as people would rather "live freely than be oppressed by masks." Yikes.

Despite this, health experts have stressed their importance.

Healthline describes them as "crucial in the fight against the pandemic." They stressed that this rule is to protect others and not yourself. Wearing a mask reduces the transmission of the disease by at least half.

Another person to stress their importance was scientist and presenter, Bill Nye.

Commonly known as "Bill Nye the Science Guy", he shared 2 videos on TikTok that highlighted just how important and effective face masks can be.

In the videos, the sixty-four-year-old conducted a simple experiment using several types of facing coverings and a candle.

But there's one other TikToker who's offered a rather controversial perspective...

Jada Woods was a popular TikToker with a strong anti-mask stance.

But she's now had a change of heart - and it was for a truly heartbreaking reason.

She'd shared her journey from her now-deleted TikTok account...

From saying she doesn't believe in wearing masks to tearfully sharing that multiple members of her family had caught the virus.
