Reader asks why he should wear a mask

To The Editor:

Please tell me again why I should wear a mask?

I have asthma and wearing a mask makes it difficult to breathe as moisture builds up. Millions of Americans have asthma more severely than I do. Millions more Americans have other lung problems, i.e. C.O.P.D. and they have enough of a hard time breathing let alone adding a mask which exacerbates their problems.

So please explain to us all why we should wear a mask and cause us further harm?
