Health provides the use of a mask for the whole year

 We have been informed that the Government of Pedro Sanchez expects that we will have to wear masks for the rest of 2021. This measure has been taken by the government together with the Ministry of Health to limit the number of infections. This news comes to us since the government has renewed its mask supply contract until January 2022, and it is believed that it could last until 2023.

In the agreements of the Ministry of Health it can be read that the duration of the contract is annual, that is, since it is formalized, it will have to be supplied by the same company throughout that period, and this contract could be extended if the current circumstances are prolonged.

This emergency contracting includes disposable surgical gownsnitril glovesor; safety glasses; Type II and II R surgical masks; protective masks (with filtration efficiency equivalent to ffp2 and ffp3); Covid-19 molecular test and extraction kits. The budget for this purchase amounted to 2.131 million euros and was formalized on December 23.

Salvador Illa, Minister of Health, stated the other day on Cadena Ser that although collective immunity is achieved, the use of masks will not be stopped since the virus will not suddenly go away, he said that most likely we will have to continue wearing masks once the pandemic is “over”, to ensure that there are no relapses.

He also commented that there will be sectors in which the use of masks will continue to be mandatory, such as medical centers, where there is the possibility of contagion of other diseases. He affirms that society is already used to its use and that having this evolution will not be a problem for citizens.

We do not know how the solution could evolve since many believe that its use will not be mandatory before the end of the year. It is impossible what can happen, but seeing the latest data will still be necessary to use it for a long period. 

The data indicate that in recent times there has been an increase in new daily cases, meanwhile, governments are afraid to take measures as strict as the quarantine we suffered last year because the economic consequences would be dire for Spain and Europe.

Everything indicates that the vaccine will be able to stop the advance of the disease, but until then we will have to continue using masks and safety measures.
