The coronavirus pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges in the world. To flatten the graph, regulations like social distancing, hygienic practices like masks and hand sanitizers are made compulsory.
To fight against the global pandemic its important to wear a mask in public and maintain hygienic practices. As the outbreak continues and parts of the country reopen, many localities and businesses are suggesting, even requiring, the wearing of masks or other types of face coverings to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Homemade masks, made of cotton are claimed to protect wearers from possible spreading of the virus.
As businesses reopen and employees return to work, masks can play a pivotal role in helping block the spread of the virus, especially from asymptomatic carriers. The more people in a given space wearing masks, the less viral particles are making it into the space around them, decreasing exposure and risk.
Masks should be used in conjunction with social distancing, not as a replacement of that practice.
