Rethink the use of masks

BOTH the World Health Organisation (WHO) and our Health Ministry have reiterated that people who are not sick need not wear face masks. They have advised that only people who are unwell or caring for the sick need to wear a mask. This is to enable the masks, which are currently in short supply, to be made available to the frontliners in the fight against Covid-19.

Infectious disease experts are also worried that masks could give people a false sense of security and make them less disciplined about the other preventive measures to ward off Covid-19, including social distancing and hand hygiene.
