>Nose-only COVID-19 masks
墨西哥推出防新冠'鼻罩'

Researchers in Mexico have sniffed out a new COVID-19 mask designed for people to wear only over their noses while they eat.
墨西哥研究人员发明了一种预防新冠的新型面罩,这种戴在鼻子上的面罩专为用餐中的人设计。

The nose masks - worn under a full mask with similar behind-the-ears straps - were unveiled in a demonstration video where a man and woman sit down for lunch, according to Reuters.
据路透社报道,在一段演示视频中,一男一女坐下用餐时,露出了戴在口罩之下的、用绳带挂在耳后的鼻罩。

In the video, the pair takes off their normal masks to reveal their nose-only gear before chowing down at an outdoor table.
视频显示,两人摘下了正常的口罩,露出了只遮住鼻子的装备,随后在一张户外餐桌上大快朵颐。

Human cells that give people a sense of smell are a key entry point for coronavirus, making nose coverings important, according to Johns Hopkins University.
根据约翰霍普金斯大学的研究,与嗅觉有关的人体细胞是冠状病毒入侵的关键目标,因此鼻子遮挡物至关重要。

But the World Health Organization recommends that people wear masks covering their nose, mouth and chin to best protect themselves from the virus.
但是世界卫生组织建议人们戴口罩时遮住鼻子、嘴和下巴,以最大限度地保护自己免受病毒的侵害。

And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studies have shown that more mask material is generally better than less, and that double-masking can significantly decrease the spread of the coronavirus.
而美国疾控中心的研究表明,一般来说,口罩用料多比用料少要好,双重口罩遮蔽可以显著减少新冠病毒的传播。

The report didn't note the name of the Mexican researchers, their company or when the nose masks could become available to the public.
该报道没有提到墨西哥研究人员的名字、公司,也没有提到口罩何时会上市供公众购买。
