Melania Trump encourages wearing masks, after Donald Trump said he would not.
The first lady of the United States of America encourages wearing a mask during the coronavirus pandemic.
Melania Trump, the wife of US President Donald Trump, has launched a series of posts in the online environment, pointing to the importance of wearing the protective mask in public as a way to prevent the spread of the contagious virus. Of course, the first lady, aged 49, recalls that social distance is also a necessary preventive measure, especially since the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has suggested the existence of asymptomatic COVID-19 cases.
"The CDC continues to study the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and in this regard recommends wearing masks or face coverings in the public space, but also distancing them as precautionary measures," said Melania Trump while holding a mask. "These are recommended to keep everyone safe," the first lady added.
The campaign launched by Melania Trump comes just a week after her husband, US President Donald Trump, said he would not wear this mask despite expert recommendations.
"The CDC advises us to cover our face when we go out into the public space as a precautionary measure," said 73-year-old Donald Trump during a press conference. "It's optional so you don't have to," the US president continued.
A month ago, President Donald Trump's wife had a series of appearances trying to sound an alarm and motivate the spread of coronavirus pandemic information.
"Changes must be made now. We will not live like this forever, "he said after filming. "Our children will return to school, people will return to work and we will gather again for concerts and sporting events," continued the first lady of the United States. "Please stay connected with your family and loved ones through video conferencing, mobile phones, social media and other secure technologies. Be safe and remember that while we are away from each other, we are all together, "concluded President Donald Trump's wife.
Donald Trump has been wearing a face mask for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic
US President Donald Trump wore the public mask of COVID-19 for the first time since the outbreak of the pandemic on Saturday, the BBC reports.
"I've never been against wearing a mask, but I really think there's a place and a time for that," Trump said before the visit.
Earlier, he said he would not wear a mask, mocking his Democratic rival Joe Biden, who was wearing it.
On Saturday, however, Donald Trump said: "I think when you're in a hospital, especially in this situation, where you're talking to a lot of soldiers and people who in some cases have just left the operating table, I think it's a great thing to wear a mask ”.
"I am totally in favor of wearing a mask," the US president told Fox News a week ago.
However, when the American Centers for Disease Control began in April to recommend that people wear masks in public in order to stop the spread of the virus, Trump told reporters he would not follow that recommendation, the BBC notes.
Coquettish and with a protective mask! Celebrities perfectly matched their protective masks with their clothing
Who says you can't look good if you cover most of your face with a face mask? The rules of protection against infection with the new coronavirus do not prevent the ladies from the royal families or with high positions in the state to be chic. At the first official engagements during the pandemic, Queen Mathilde of Belgium and the President of Slovakia perfectly matched their protective mask with their clothing.
Queen Mathilde of Belgium (46 years old) recently adopted a bold outfit, with an asymmetrical blouse and intense orange pants, at a meeting with women entrepreneurs from a flower farm. It is the queen's third public engagement since the quarantine was established in Belgium, a country severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
In fact, the queen's visit to Gediflora aimed to address this topic, the impact of coronavirus on the business in Belgium. Coquettish, Mathilde accessorized her outfit with oversized earrings, a gold bracelet, a clutch with green finishes and green sandals.
But the most important accessory was the protective mask, which the queen took care to match with the rest of the outfit.
Slovakian president accused of turning a face mask into an aesthetic accessory.
Zuzana Čaputová, the president of Slovakia, made people angry at the end of March, when she matched her protective mask with a garnet dress, during a political event held in Bratislava. At the time, Slovakia had reported 186 cases of infection with the new coronavirus, and there were many who criticized the president's flirtation.
Other voices have argued that her gesture could be a source of inspiration, especially for young people, who treat the coronavirus pandemic with too much relaxation. In fact, Zuzana's image was compared to the famous Mileena from "Mortal Kombat".
Known for impeccable clothing taste, Queen Letizia of Spain taught a lesson in adequacy during the coronavirus pandemic. On a working visit with her husband, King Felipe, on the largest fresh food distribution platform in Spain, Letizia impressed with her sober, practical outfit and perfectly adapted to the new rules of protection.
While interacting with the workers on the platform, Letizia wore a protective mask and black gloves, matched with black pants and blouse. In fact, at one point, he waved his elbow to avoid direct contact with workers.
How FC Barcelona makes money during the coronavirus pandemic
The well known football clubs also make money during the pandemic. FC Barcelona decided to sell anti-coronavirus masks and launched 3 models, in three different sizes.
Each of them costs 18 euros and, according to the statements of those in the marketing department of the Catalan group, they are made of ecological cotton. Moreover, they are reusable, because, according to the "data sheet", they do not lose their anti-virus qualities even after 40 washes. To encourage local industry, Catalans ordered masks from workshops in the city.
To advertise them, the people from Barcelona also photographed the technician Quique Setien wearing it at one of the trainings this week, so that the fans know exactly what they are buying. Because they are already on the market and, according to the official website of Messi's team, the masks can be found in five stores, one of which is also in Barcelona airport.
The three existing models are now only the first of a total of nine to appear until the resumption of the Spanish first division, which is scheduled to take place around 12 May.

The beaches of Hong Kong, "suffocated" by disposable masks
Disposable masks have invaded the beaches of Hong Kong where, for several months, residents have been covering their faces to protect themselves from the new coronavirus.
According to environmental associations, these masks add to the already worrying amounts of plastic waste floating in Hong Kong's waters, writes Agerpres.
"The disposable mask is just another weight we leave to future generations," said Gary Stokes, co-founder of OceansAsia.
Shortly before the pandemic broke out, the Hong Kong environmental organization launched a one-year study on waste and microplastics found on one of the country's most remote and uninhabited islands.
The five most commonly found items were bottles, polystyrene packaging, lighters, disposable cutlery and plastic straw.
Currently, disposable masks float on the surface of the sea, along the beaches and the coast.
Recently, environmentalists identified and collected 70 masks within a radius of 100 meters. A week later, another 30 masks were found.
"Since people started wearing masks, the consequences of this phenomenon are now visible on the beaches," Stokes said.
Hong Kong's nearly 7.5 million people produce six million tons of waste each year, of which only about 30% is recycled.
