COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, has been spreading, causing a world pandemic.
Hospitals are constantly full and are constantly under stress as they run out of room and are under pressure 24/7.
Remember to always stay 6 feet apart to prevent spreading any contagious germs.
Healthcare workers are constantly on the battlefield against COVID-19 and need all the encouragement, support, and help they can get.
Don't forget to always wash your hands so the germs from the virus won't spread.
Please always wear masks as they are effective in preventing the virus from spreading.
The project is called the Face Mask Detection where it uses facial and object recognition to accurately distinguish those with or without masks. The user would upload an image and the program would analyze it and output whether or not they're wearing a mask. This project is needed to prevent higher risk of spreading the coronavirus and to enforce those who don't follow proper guidelines to wear a mask.
Wearing a facial mask in public has become a mandatory requirement since the start of COVID-19. They’re important in public space (ex. stadiums, airports, warehouses, and other crowded spaces) where foot traffic is heavy and safety regulations are critical to safeguarding everyone’s health.
