The CoronaVirus epidemic is currently facing all over the world. Physicians and medical experts recommend to maintain physical distance and to wear face masks to control the spread of the coronavirus.
However, there is a widespread belief that wearing masks releases high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), which in turn can lead to health issues.
But it is not true that wearing a face mask releases high amounts of carbon dioxide. A recent study has found that respiratory problems are just rumors. The Thornysic Society of America has made this clear. In a crowded area, people believe that one should wear a mask when going out of the house, the same way from the clutches of the virus.
Only those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were found to have a respiratory problem due to wearing the mask. Research has shown that these problems can occur in people with lung disease. But such people are advised to wear breathing masks.
Some people experience dyspnea or shortness of breath when wearing a face mask. However, this is not a problem caused by excessive carbon dioxide emissions. It has been found that the problem is more likely to occur if the air circulation (ventilation) where you are is poor.
