In an interview with AccuWeather, Shan Soe-Lin, a lecturer in global affairs at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, said that people
"are going to have to wear masks until there's a vaccine."
"Masks are one of the most equitable interventions we have,"
Soe-Lin said. "We know not everyone can socially distance, but everyone can cover their face."
Soe-Lin also said that masks can be worn by almost anyone in the population, making them an easy way to try to prevent the spread of the virus.
