A new study published in medRxiv, people who wear glasses are 2-to-3 times less likely to contract COVID-19.
"Protective role of the spectacles was found statistically significant, if those were used for (a) long period of the day," he added. "Touching and rubbing of the eyes with contaminated hands may be a significant route of infection."
The researchers said people touch their face on average 23 times an hour and the eyes on average three times per hour.
Me: WOW *puts glasses back on*
