Face masks have more or less become part of daily life as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Cameron Mattis, from New York, thought he’d come up with a very bright idea when he decided to use a photo of the lower half of his face, in the hope the mask would ‘blend in’.
But in revealing the pictures of him wearing the mask on Twitter, Cameron said the picture of his face was printed 20 per cent too big, making him look ridiculous.
His tweet, which went viral and was liked more than 600,000 times, prompted dozens of people from the US and the UK to reply with their own pictures of their ‘face’ masks.
