Latest COVID-19 Guidelines: WHO Makes Mask Mandatory

Geneva: The World Health Organization (WHO) has unleashed strict guidelines on wearing a face mask in the wake of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Going by the latest recommendation, the mask has been made mandatory for everyone in healthcare facilities and those leaving in poorly-ventilated indoor spaces in places where COVID-19 is spreading.

The world body asked the governments to use masks in indoor and outdoor public places where there was a risk of transmission of novel coronavirus, reported news agency Reuters.

The WHO, in an advisory released on Wednesday, said that in places and areas where the pandemic was spreading, people — including children and students aged 12 or over — must wear masks in shops, workplaces and schools that lack adequate ventilation. People have been advised to wear a mask while receiving visitors at home in poorly-ventilated rooms.

Mask should also be used in well ventilated indoor spaces where physical distancing of at least one metre (3 feet) cannot be maintained.

WHO added that in all cases, masks have to be accompanied by other precautions like regular washing of hands.

More than 63 million people have so far been infected by coronavirus worldwide, while nearly 1. 5 million people have succumbed to the infection.
