Magen Yisrael Headquarters director Tomer Lotan announced that the Israeli Ministry of Health is researching a recommendation to wear two masks to help minimize corona infection, one of which is a normal medical mask with a cloth muzzle on top of it.

The idea of suggesting a double muzzle came from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief epidemiologist who is leading the fight against Corona in the United States and advising the White House. The suggestion is still under consideration by the ministry.

This entails wearing the normal medical mask most of us already wear, with an extra cloth muzzle on it, and following the advice of Fauci, administration officials, including Vice President Kamala Harris, a spokeswoman for the White House, supported the concept and even Tom Cruise, a Hollywood star.

The purpose behind the recommendation is that it allows for improved face covering by wearing two masks, as the original muzzle is not built to match the dimensions of the face, in addition to this, wearing a muzzle over a muzzle allows additional concealment that protects against virus infection and multiple mutations.
