Los ANGELES - Gen Z and Millennials may get bad rap for what people perceive as apathy toward COVID - 19 and lack of social distancing, but more than half of 18 to 39 - year - old Americans are always wearing face masks in public settings, according to Facing Truth Survey conducted by ENGINE INSIGHTS on behalf of SQ Medical Supplies. The Us - base Survey found that 62 percent of Americans 18 to 23 always wear face masks in public settings, compared with 54 percent of Americans 24 to 39. Sixty - one percent of people 40 to 55 years old, known as Gen X, say they always wear face masks in public settings, versus 69 percent of people who are 56 to 74 years old. From a broader perspective, survey says that the majority of Americans either wear face masks all of the time or most of the time in public settings. The frequency of mask wearing is highest among people 65 and older. It is easy to stereotype Gen Z and Millennials and assume they are not wearing face masks, but the truth is, adults of all ages are wearing masks these days, and that is positive news as we continue to combat COVID - 19, says Jeffrey Tipton, MD, who specializes in occupational and preventative medicine. We know that wearing a mask significantly lowers the risk of transmitting disease to others, as well as prevents contracting disease. Do all masks protect the US perfectly? Well, no, but something is better than nothing. When survey participants were asked if they wear cloth face mask, surgical mask, N95 or KN95 respirator, most people said cloth, followed by surgical mask. Only 14 percent of those surveyed indicate they are wearing N95 or KN95 respirator. N95 respirators are certified in the United States and KN95 respirators are certified in China. Dr. Tipton says cloth masks are generally good at stopping and capturing small droplets but are not great at stopping super tiny particles found in viruses. Higher quality cloth masks with couple of layers of fabric typically block around 80 percent of viruses or bacteria from entering mask, compared with protection of greater than 95 percent from surgical masks. Fit N95 or KN95 respirator is the gold standard for protection, but they are largely reserved for healthcare setting, Dr. Tipton say. Respirators are designed to block more than 95 percent of virus - sized particles. The Facing Truth Survey also tracks the frequency of face masks worn among different races. Seventy - two percent of African Americans report they are always wearing face masks in public settings, compared with 58 percent of non - Hispanic whites who were survey. Regionally, 67 percent of survey participants in the Northeast say they are always wearing face mask, compared with 51 percent of Americans in the Midwest, 63 percent in the South and 66 percent in the West.

Welcome to SQ Medical Supplies

Los ANGELES - Dr. Jeffrey Tipton says it is easy to stereotype Gen Z and Millennials and assume they are not wearing face masks, but recent survey suggest that the majority of those generations are doing their part amid the COVID 19 pandemic. The Survey, conducted between July 27 and July 29 by Engine Insights on behalf of SQ Medical Supplies, question 1 004 adults. It find majority of the youngest generations wear masks all the time or most of the time while in public. Of Gen Z respondents, 62% say they wear a mask. That number drops to 54% when examining Millennials. Doctors have stressed that young people are immune from disease. Though the survey shows clear majority of younger people pulling their weight when it comes to wearing facial coverings, Millennials had the lowest percentage of respondents claiming to wear masks. Sixty - one percent of Generation X say they wear masks while 69 percent of Baby Boomers say they do the same. In all, surveyors say 86% of respondents report wearing masks, which Tipton says is welcome news. The truth is, adults of all ages are wearing masks these days, and that is positive news as we continue to combat COVID - 19, Tipton said in a news release. Do all masks protect the US perfectly? Well, no, but something is better than nothing. As pandemics have progress, health experts have repeatedly cited benefits that masks provide to wearers in helping to prevent infection and spread of the novel coronavirus. Mask mandates have become more commonplace in cities and states, with multiple businesses and organizations requiring that customers wear one when entering their establishments. Relate: McDonald's to require customers to wear masks at all US restaurants amid a spike in COVID - 19 cases. Researchers and scientists are now learning that not only does wearing a mask reduce viral transmission, but it may also help you avoid major illness, even if you end up contracting novel coronavirus. The hypothesis is explained in an article published in Journal of General Internal Medicine by Dr. Monica Gandhi which further lay out the second theory that wearing a mask actually results in milder disease if you do get COVID - 19. One study, published in Oxford University Press, found that surgical mask partitions significantly reduce transmission and severity of infection of novel coronavirus among hamsters. Mask partitions reduce viral load in hamsters that do get infect, as they were found to have fewer viruses within their bodies than those infected without a mask. This story was reported from Atlanta.
