    "Is it true that" The onus is on you to provide basis\evidence\links\sources, you haven't given any for your bold claim. I agree with another poster who suggested they may have had to wear masks to protect themselves from the sand.

    No. It was to keep the sand from blowing into the nostrils and mouths.

    Hitler, Stalin and all the other autocrats kept their people submissive, and none of those peoples wore masks.

    People everywhere wear masks and distanced themselves from each other during epidemics to keep from dying from the disease. Be glad and thankful that no authority has boarded up your doors and windows.

    Google "plague" "Black Death" "cholera" "influenza" "typhoid" and "smallpox" 

    I'd rather be a live "sheep" than a dead "goat".
