A recent article by Medscape discusses the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield saying last Tuesday that if all Americans wore a mask, the rising cases of COVID-19 could be under control within four to eight weeks.

“I think if we can get everyone to wear masks right now, we can bring this under control within four, six, eight weeks,” Redfield said. The CDC director also said wearing a mask was a public health issue and that he was “sad” to see it become so politicized.
