young children do not need to wear masks for protection from the coronavirus since it can hinder their breathing. In addition, such a measure does not make much sense from the point of view of combating the spread of the disease.
it was on his page on the social network wrote the doctor and TV presenter Elena Malysheva, responding to a comment one of the readers. The issue was caused by the fact that the Ministry of health of Kazakhstan issued a decree on the compulsory wearing of masks in public places for citizens of all ages, including babies.
Is not acceptable, – said Elena Malysheva. In the USA there are two cases of deaths of children who were in masks. Children have an imperfect system of breathing. In addition, they pose no threat to adults.
