Description:
COVID-19 Public Information : Sharing is Caring

Who should wear a mask:

1. Doctor or nurse at a clinic or hospital

2. Someone taking care of a sick person at home

For a healthy person, wearing a mask in public is less effective  than putting that mask on a sick person. This is because, even when the others are wearing masks, the sick person’s infections droplets can gets everywhere. For instance, on others’ shoes, mobile phones, clothes and etc. Consequently, it is all too easy for others to get infected when they touch their faces  after removing their masks or when they shake hand with others.

However, if the sick person wears a mask, the infectious droplets are contained and everyone is safe.
