A 55-year-old male asked:
is covering mouth and nose by mask sufficient to avoid corona exposure? can it not be transmitted through eyes and ears?

Probably not: The virus can apparently be transferred to your hands, and then if you touch your face, nose, etc, you can be exposed. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds before touching your face.
