Coronavirus is spreading at a rapid pace and the government is taking every possible step to protect the citizens from the deadly virus. In the recent advisory issued by the Health Ministry it is said that homemade reusable face cover should be used even by people who are not suffering from medical conditions or having breathing difficulties to maintain personal hygiene
Here are things to keep in mind while using homemade mask
Make sure it covers the nose and mouth completely, ensuring that there are no gaps on the sides.
The internet is filled with instructions for DIY masks and the best patterns and materials to use, but to make the mask more effective opt for cotton material and wash before use.
Wash the mask after every use with soap and warm water.
Always keep in mind that the homemade masks do not give you complete protection and it is always better to maintain distance.
Never share your masks with anyone
