“Curious” behavior: Criticism of Laschet's statement of “invented limit values”

 “Curious” behavior: Criticism of Laschet's statement of “invented limit values” CDU boss Armin Laschet met with criticism from the SPD and the Greens with skeptical statements about the importance of corona incidence figures. "Anyone who, like Laschet, speaks of 'invented limit values' is destroying trust in the Corona measures," wrote SPD parliamentary group vice Katja Mast on Tuesday on the Internet service Twitter. © dpa Armin Laschet SPD general secretary Lars Klingbeil accuses Laschet of a dodging course in the corona pandemic.

According to a study, the risk of corona infection in glasses wearers is significantly lower than in people without glasses. We clarify what this is all about.

People who wear glasses in the corona pandemic were mainly noticed by fogged glasses as a result of wearing mouth-nose masks.

An Indian study has now come to the unexpected result that people with fogged vision are less likely to be infected with corona than people with clear vision.

wearers of glasses protected from Corona?

Around 41 million people in Germany wear glasses, 23 million of them constantly. Glasses are not only an indication of poor eyesight, but also of pronounced intelligence (the latter at least like to claim the latter about themselves). And now a study also shows that the visual aid protects against corona infections.

Even if the new infections are slowly declining, the Robert Koch Institute again reported over 10,000 cases on Thursday. The main question with a corona infection is still: Where did I get infected? Now a large source of infection should have been uncovered.

304 people with mild Covid-19 symptoms were asked in a hospital in northern India how they were wearing their glasses. The researchers observed that people who wear glasses all day have a lower risk of being infected with corona.

That is the reason

The study also shows that people touch their faces on average 23 times an hour and rub their eyes three times. Unsanitary behavior that is not recommended, especially in times of Corona, as it can also lead to an infection through the nose, mouth and eyes. It was observed that

glasses wearers rub their eyes much less often. Conclusion: The risk of infection decreases.

However, the results of the study should be treated with caution. First of all, because 304 test subjects are anything but representative. In addition, the study was not conducted during the height of the pandemic in the country. Accordingly, the result could be a "coincidence", as infranken.de writes .
