This just underlines the need to keep our footing to make sure we take the public health measures that we talk about it all the time,” Fauci said, reiterating that the vaccine is “safe and effective,” adding at a White House Coronavirus Task Force press conference yesterday: “It is extremely important for pregnant women or women who planning to become pregnant in order to get vaccinated.” He referred to a study of 35,000 pregnant or breastfeeding women who had no unusual side effects.

You know you must, but do you know why you must? “To understand the rationale for wearing masks to prevent the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, it is helpful to understand how the virus spreads from person to person,” Fauci wrote in a paper. SARS-CoV-2 is primarily transmitted by respiratory droplets exhaled by infected individuals; these droplets span a spectrum of sizes. Larger droplets fall from the air relatively quickly while close to the source, usually within 6 feet. Smaller droplets, often referred to as aerosols, are also present up close, but can remain in the air over time and at greater distances, decreasing in concentration as they move outward from their source.” A mask prevents these droplets from entering your body and prevents you from spreading them.

These measures “are the sort of thing that will prevent this new species from spreading any further,” Fauci said. Follow the basics and help end this pandemic wherever you live – get vaccinated ASAP; if you live in an area with a low vaccination coverage, wear an N95 face mask, don’t travel, social distancing, avoid crowds, don’t go in with people you don’t hide with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, and to protect your life and that of others, don’t visit any of these 35 places you are most likely to get COVID.
