Face mask plea

A deaf teenager has asked Boris John­son for his help to get more peo­ple wear­ing trans­par­ent face masks. Emma Church sent the prime min­is­ter a spe­cial mask she made her­self, in the hope that he will set an ex­am­ple by wear­ing it in pub­lic. The mask has a see-through win­dow that al­lows the wearer’s mouth to be seen. Emma says this will help peo­ple with hear­ing dif­fi­cul­ties to com­mu­ni­cate, be­cause they can lip-read when peo­ple are speak­ing to them.
