Since the start of covid19 back in January, I have been following the various decisions made by those around the world be it scientific or government advisory.
I researched the great pandemic of 1918.
The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. Although there is not universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide during 1918-1919.
This happened without the luxury of the general public able to fly and hop from country to country like we can in 2020.
In the United States, it was first identified in military personnel in spring 1918. It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States.
(somethings don't change)
I researched the images, I am more visual than interpreting the written word, (I'm dyslexic ).
The images portrayed women walking the streets covering their mouths.. It was a no brainier for me to begin making masks and face coverings.
Despite being trolled at the very beginning of my quest to develop the best fitting mask, I have pursued other options hence the MAScarf© was born.
I have waited to release this until the time was right and I had registered my design for copyright.
I have always been someone to solve a problem, this is how my button and go scarf was developed, I am sure you have all read about the start of REW?
New versions will be available weekly.
