Masks are mandatory again at airports

The determination of National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) for masks to be mandatory in airports and planes will come into effect from this Friday, 25, across the country.

The decision was taken earlier this week. The directors of the agency claimed the increase in the number of cases of covid-19, the proximity of the end of the year festivities and the holidays to justify the order. Masks are no longer mandatory in airport boarding areas and on planes in August this year.

Despite the determination, according to Anvisa, people will be able to remove their masks to hydrate and eat during the flight service. The rule also applies to the internal areas of the airport.

Determination goes against the grain of studies

Anvisa’s decision is questioned by a series of scientific studies that point to the effectiveness of masks as a protective measure against covid-19.

The medical organization Cochrane last year reviewed almost 70 studies on the use of the item and concluded that masks make little or no difference in the number of people who become infected.

Still in 2021, a Danish study, published in Annals of Internal Medicineinvolved almost five thousand people and found no difference in covid infections between the group with a mask and the group without a mask.
