MoHFW URGES PUBLIC TO FOLLOW GUIDELINES ON USE OF FACE MOUTH COVER

 

                                                                Panaji:-July 23, 2020

 

 

          The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) has informed that there is an inappropriate use of the N-95 mask (particular with valved respirator) by the public other than designated health workers. It is also brought to the notice that use of  valved respirator N-95 masks is detrimental to the measures  adopted for preventing the spread of Corona Virus as it does not prevent the virus from escaping out of the mask.

 

          The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has  therefore urged all concerned to follow the guidelines, on the use of face mouth cover and prevent inappropriate use of N-95 masks, as available on the website of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India https://www.mohfw.gov.in/pdf/Advisory&ManualonuseofHomemadeProtectiveCoverforFace&Mouth.pdf
