MILAN, 08 OCT – The anti-covid masks that are received by the Ministry of Education are considered to be of bad or poor quality, by more than 80% of the students and ineffective by more than 75% who declare that, among other things, they are not fit well with the face; 65% also have a bad smell. This is what emerges from a report on over 750 students from the Freud Higher Institute in Milan. Director Daniele Nappo explains that “it is very difficult to distribute them and explain their needs to girls and boys and the fact that they need to be changed over the course of hours”. Young people, more than 7 out of 10, define them as “diapers for the face” and more than 85% prefer to take them from home. “The mask, its manufacture, is still too important not to give the right importance, both to maintain everyone’s presence in the classroom, and – underlines Nappo – to avoid this waste that, after all, is around ten million masks. , delivered, for each school day “. The report shows that “families are worried because in fact these masks make the classrooms of the environments less safe than they should be, and are used not only by students but also by all the teaching and secretarial staff” and it is feared that “they have a lower filtering value than the necessary protection “. The situation was “reported by many schools to the Ministry” as well as that “often the masks remain packed in cartons”. (HANDLE).
