What do world leaders really mean by refusing to wear face masks?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In the midst of a global pandemic, where the disease can be spread through coughing or sneezing, covering your mouth and nose in public might seem like an obvious thing to do. Yet, whether it’s on a trip to the supermarket or giving an address to the nation, wearing a mask has become much more than a way to hold back the virus. Depending on which part of the world you live in, it may be interpreted as a political, social, economic or moral gesture.
