      Europe learns to live with the mask

      People in England will be required by law to wear a face covering in shops and supermarkets from Friday, extending a rule already applied to public transport. As European governments seek to open their economies after months of lockdowns, national authorities broadly acknowledge that masks or other face coverings can help limit the spread of the coronavirus.

      Minister of Health Kiril Ananiev has reversed his Monday order, which obligated citizens to wear a face mask at both indoor and outdoor public spaces. He announced that the state will buy one million masks for low-income citizens and for those who lack the financial means to buy them. The minister added that the masks to be ordered will be of the FFP2 or FFP3 type.
