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.
