Abstract


The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COV-ID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is undoubtedly the defining global health crisis and the greatest challenge the world has faced since the World War II. . Actually, this serious health problem mandates lockdown and certain protective measures. These includes social distancing, self-isolation measures as well as use of facemasks. All these measures have negative impact on communication. For example, wearing Facemasks can hinder proper communication as the sounds be-come muffled. However, it is considered one of the most protec-tive measures as it guards against infection and keeps people safe. More than 50 countries mandate wearing masks in public.
