In such times when the bar of the COVID-19 positive patients is continuously increasing, a statement from Centre made all the citizens go awestruck. The statement came that N-95 Masks are not appropriate for the use as they can spread the contamination and are not effective in containing the infection. According to recent reports, the valved respirator N-95 Masks are imperfect in preventing the virus to escape out of the mask.
The statement said “if an asymptomatic person is wearing a valved N-95 mask, then the propensity of that person infecting others exists.’’
It means that if a person is infected with coronavirus and shows no symptoms that means he has the ability to infect other people despite wearing an N-95 Mask.
A formal letter by DGHS Dr Rajiv Garg was wrote to NHM and to all principal health secretaries in states concerning the same. He asked the state governments to advise all concerned to implement and follow guidelines on use of mouth coverings and advised not to further use the N-95 masks.
