Recommendations about shaving off a beard during high risk of contracting the virus were given by experts several years ago.
The American Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends men shave their beards, as it increases the chance of contracting a coronavirus 1000 times. It is reported by the Daily Mail.
The study is based on whether a mask can effectively protect a man depending on the type of his beard. Scientists have demonstrated their findings clearly.
Experts have shown how a protective mask should be placed on the face so that it performs its functions. A thick and long beard does not allow you to correctly fix the mask on the face, which increases the likelihood of contracting it.
