Psychosocial, biological, and immunological risks for children and pupils make long-term wearing of mouth masks difficult to maintain.

Website BMJ

Dear Editor,

IIn a recent article, Westhuizen and colleagues [1] argued for a global implementation of face covering to control COVID-19 virus spread. In doing so, they do not differentiate between adults, adolescents, and children. This rapid response considers the negative effects at the immunological and psychological level of mandating facemasks for children and adolescents and maintains that they outweigh the possible gains.
