Video / NZ HeraldA photograph of a baby wearing a full-face mask on a recent Air NZ flight has sparked fierce debate - but the man that took the photo says that the negative reaction is misplaced. The photograph, taken on a flight from Auckland to Wellington on July 1, shows the child wearing an adult-sized mask across its entire face, with holes cut out for the eyes. Jandre Opperman, who snapped the viral image and shared it on Instagram, told the Herald it was a "super-sweet interaction". "However, a key point about young children is that they very quickly show you when they feel uncomfortable," Kvalsvig said. "If a young child is wearing a mask and they're active, alert, and happy and they're being closely supervised by an adult, that's reassuring to see."
