Since the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), the World Health Organization hasn’t relented in sharing health tips and how to stay safe. Well,
quite recently, The World Health Organization issued updated advice on the use
masks for curbing the spread of Coronavirus Disease. The guidance is based on evolving
evidence and provides advice on who should wear a mask, when it should be worn
and what it should be made of.
The WHO Says that when social distancing isn’t possible outside the
on public transport and in locations as varied as shops and refugee camps, it
is suggested that everyone’s faces should be covered with homemade masks to
avoid passing on the infection.
The 60s with underlying health conditions should go further and wear medical-grade
masks to give themselves better protection. As well as anyone with
an underlying medical condition — should wear not merely a face mask, but a
medical mask whenever they can’t socially distance. The WHO had previously
recommended that only health care workers, people sickened by COVID-19, and
their caregivers wear masks.
In the UK, the government announced on Friday that hospital visitors and outpatients would be
required to wear face coverings, and that hospital staff would have to wear
medical masks, even if they were not in a clinical setting.
guidance will come into force on 15 June, as more businesses open up and more
pupils return to school. Let’s endeavour to adhere to these guidelines.
