Can medical mask protect one against coronavirus?

Medical masks cannot protect against CoronaVirus when used alone, you should always use them with hand hygiene and other preventative measures. WHO recommends use of masks if you:

  • Have cough, fever and difficulty breathing and seek medical care
  • Do not have these symptoms you do not have to wear a mask as there is no evidence that they protect people who are not sick
  • Are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected CoronaVirus Infection.
