Letter to the Editor: The Mask Is Necessary

To the Editor:

They have said to remove the mask in open spaces but to wear it when we are in a crowded place. I do not think we understood that but we interpret it as we see fit. The danger is not over, the virus is still here and there are even mutations, so we must continue to carefully follow the instructions given to us by experts. Even those who got the vaccine should be careful because we do not yet know what happens to the mutation and how contagious it is. Some countries, at least in Europe, have already begun to take action, so we must not be complacent in order to avoid the worst that can happen.
