The World Health Organization has released an updated version of the recommendations for the use of medical masks. The main one is compliance with the entire range of preventive measures.

As stated in the document, wearing a medical mask can cause a person to have a false sense of security due to which he will begin to neglect other methods of protection against coronavirus. These include hand hygiene, lack of touching the mouth, eyes and nose, refusal to visit crowded places.

At the same time, WHO experts add that the mask is not required for those who are not sick, since there is no data on its usefulness for human health. If it is all used, the rules for its replacement and disposal must be observed.

Earlier it was reported that the Ministry of Industry and Trade began centralized supply medical masks in the regions of the country. This allowed us to meet the needs of medical organizations and prevent speculation.
