Wear a mask to help prevent the spread of Covid-19,” said the alert, which appears at the top of Facebook’s news feed. A recommendation that applies in public space, both for the mouth and the nose.

This prevention message will first be disseminated in the United States, where the coronavirus epidemic is experiencing a rebound. This has led the authorities of several states to make the wearing of masks compulsory in public places.

An alert that should in any case not please Donald Trump, very reluctant to wear a mask. The recommendation on Facebook and Instagram should later be extended to other countries around the world.
