Doctor says healthcare providers have no agenda other than wearing a mask to protect people

“We, along with the public health community and the scientific community, are trying to protect as many people as possible, which is our job,” Dr Figueroa said.

Bill Nye “the Science Guy” is famous for breaking down complex concepts into simple language. he is now taking face masks during the pandemic.

“Why do members of the scientific community want you to wear a face mask?” Nye asked in her viral Tik Tok video.

Nye first uses a scarf around her mouth to blow out a candle. It then moves on to different “levels” of masks. In one part of the video, the cloth mask in his hand is probably the most common right now. He puts on the mask and demonstrates its effectiveness in blocking the air.

“And it blocks air movement, very effectively,” Nye said in the video.

In just one day, the video got millions of views on Twitter. The New Orleans Saints also posted a message about masks. A chorus of Saints players, including defensive star Cam Jordan, sings a chant of “if you get dressed now, we can get dressed later.”

There are a plethora of memes and videos around COVID-19, and millions of people are consuming them. In the open landscape of social media, anti-masking occupies the same platform as Bill Nye. Many face mask skeptics say there is a vetting agenda behind the mandates and recommendations. Dr. Julio Figueroa of LSU Health says doctors don’t have a program, but a mission.

“We, along with the public health community and the scientific community, are trying to protect as many people as possible, which is our job,” Dr Figueroa said.

Figueroa has spent more than half his life studying the spread of disease. If people are looking for medical advice, he says you don’t have to rely on social media for advice. Healthcare professionals have been telling us for months to wear masks when we can’t maintain social distancing of at least six feet. Skeptics can seek a second opinion. But if it’s coming from a medical professional, you’ll probably get the same message.
