The coronavirus hysteria ramped up a notch when the CDC and the White House coronavirus task force "recommended" wearing face coverings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus through droplets coughed or sneezed into the air.

Misinformation and fear mongering by the news media led people to believe the virus is easily transmitted by lingering in the air for 3 hours -- which is not only false, but caused more mass hysteria.

Less than two months ago, WH task force member Dr Anthony Fauci said face masks were not necessary and could put people at risk because masks cause people to touch their faces more.

The virus enters the body when you touch your face before washing your hands. You should always wash your hands for at least 20 seconds before touching your face.
