Be safe out there, COVID-19 is no joke; however, hysteria won’t help us get past this.
Follow this advice from the World Health Organisatiohttps://www.who.int/docs/default-source/documents/advice-on-the-use-of-masks-2019-ncov.pdfn (they know what they are talking about:
- Perform hand hygiene frequently, using alcohol-based hand rub if hands are not visibly soiled or soap and water when hands are visibly soiled.
- Refrain from touching mouth and nose
- A medical mask is not required, as no evidence isavailable on its usefulness to protect non-sick persons.
“Wearing medical masks when not indicated may cause unnecessary cost, procurement burden and create a false sense of security that can lead to neglecting other essential measures such as hand hygiene practices.”
