The researchers from India included 304 respondents between the ages of 10 and 80 who reported symptoms of Covid-19.
People who wear glasses are 3 times less likely to get the coronavirus because they touch the eyes significantly less, according to a new study from India, reports “Tanjug”.
The researchers conducted the study on 304 respondents aged between 10 and 80 who reported symptoms of the virus.
About 19 percent of them wore glasses for most of the day, and the rest did not wear them, which indicates that people who wear glasses for 8 hours a day are less likely to get Covid-19, reports “Daily Mail”.
“People touch the face an average of 23 times in an hour, and the eyes 3 times in 60 minutes. “Those who wear glasses for a long time do not touch the face or eyes,” the study said.
A similar study was conducted in China last year, which found that a person wearing glasses was 5 times less likely to become infected with Covid-19 than those who did not.
