Differences of opinion and resulting decisions are the mainstay of this country’s democracy, and debate is a healthy and beneficial process. Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) infectious disease physician Steven L. Berk, M.D., says no one is likely to die today because of one’s own individual viewpoint, with a recent exception – choosing to not wear a mask, a controversy that goes beyond politics, arguments and opinions.

Berk, who is also the TTUHSC executive vice president and School of Medicine dean, says the most important thing to remember during this pandemic is – wearing masks does save lives.
