Wearing face masks properly can prevent viruses, including the new coronavirus, from getting into the nose and mouth. But viruses can penetrate our body through the eyes, too.
The new coronavirus, like many other viruses, spreads through the airway; coming into the air, the virus penetrates the body through any mucous membrane, including the eyes. That is why it is also necessary to protect the eyes with the help of special glasses.
However, it should be noted that the likelihood of such infection through the eyes is quite low in countries such as Armenia, where the risk of coronavirus is low.
Dr. Richard Dawood told Express.co.uk that such special glasses are needed for medical professionals, but they are not needed for the rest of the population.
