Non-pharmaceutical measures such as wearing masks and social distancing are as important as medical treatments. Prof. Howard Stone recently published a study on pathogen transmission in speech. Prof. Makoto TSUBOKURA is researching the effects of wearing masks and face shields. These two experts will explain their results to the general public, followed by a discussion and Q&A.
