During the current pandemic, the use of face masks has long been a debate. And one woman's obituary for her husband really makes the point better than anything else could.
Over recent months, our lives have changed completely.The pandemic has taken over.
However, in the past few weeks, little bits of normality have been appearing...With things beginning to reopen again.
But whilst things are getting back to normal, we must still take precautions.This is very important because we need to stop the spread of the virus.
In fact, some precautions are becoming mandatory in some places.There are many small things that can help stop the spread.
In some states, it has become mandatory to wear a face mask on certain occasions.For example, in some retail stores like Costco, customers are required to wear one.
Some people are choosing to wear a face-covering regardless.To provide them with peace of mind.
But there are issues with face masks that many people have discovered.Not only are they in short supply, after most countries in the world are requiring PPE.
But the issue that many people are claiming masks are uncomfortable.Particularly when they are worn for a long period of time.
Some say they can also make it hard to breathe whilst wearing.
There has been an ongoing debate as to if 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.

Many people have resorted to making their own masks.Both for themselves and for essential workers, as they are not being provided with enough.
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.
A lot of people have decided to take on board these expert suggestions...But, equally, many are still refusing to do so.
In spite of the horrific consequences of this sort of selfishness.Which has been summed up incredibly by one woman this week.
This is Stacy Nagy and her late husband, Dave.Dave sadly passed away from Covid-19 on July 22nd.
And Stacy pulled no punches in Dave's obituary."Dave did everything he was supposed to do, but you did not. Shame on all of you, and may Karma find you all!"
People are loving this fitting tribute.
Many say they want the same done for them if the worst comes to the worst.
