The most important thing that has been proved to avoid infection in the corona period is the mask. Governments are asking people to wear masks to reduce the spread of disease. Since the arrival of Corona in the country, the highest N-95 cover has been prevalent among the people. This mask is believed to prevent infection from spreading. But the truth is different. The central government has issued a warning about this mask which is essential for you to know. The central government has issued a letter to all states and union territories warning people against the use of N-95 masks containing valves. The Center says that they do not stop the virus from spreading and their use is detrimental to the measures adopted to prevent the infection. Rajiv Garg, Director General of Health Services in the Ministry of Health, has written a letter to the principal secretaries of health and medical education of the states, saying that people, especially the valve mask are misusing the N-95 mask. He also referred to the advisory available on the website of the Ministry of Health on the use of in-house protective face and mouth cover in the letter.
