CDC director's comments underscore value of wearing masks to combat COVID-19
The comments made Wednesday by CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield caught the attention of many, including Dr. Nancy Nielsen, former President of the American Medical Association. Redfield said that masks can better protect individuals from COVID-19 than a prospective vaccine. "This really put into stark contrast what Americans need to know," Nielsen said during her weekly conversation with WBFO. "But, frankly, it was also a stark rebuke to the President who basically said masks don't matter."
