While we all would agree that face masks provide some kind of protection against Covid-19 but as awareness about the disease has increased and new guidelines about the use of masks are released, we often wonder how we could maximize our protection against Covid-19. In this video, we try to get all your FAQ about masks answered in the simplest way possible.
Not in all cases, but doctors are advising that in some situations, wearing at masks is suggested even at home. So when exactly should we wear masks at home?
If you have a Covid patient at home and you are visiting a public place, then double mask or N95 mask is advised which covers your nose and mouth completely. Cloth mask over a surgical mask is the right way for double masking.
America's top medical body has confirmed if you are wearing a double mask then your chances of getting infected by Corona reduced by 85% compared to single mask, where the protection is less than 52%.
The answer is 'No'
