WHO Recommends Use Of Masks In Public As COVID-19 Resurges Globally

As part of a continuous process of reviewing COVID-19 response, treatment, and management, the World Health Organisation, WHO, has said that nose masks continue to be a key tool against COVID-19 and continues to recommend the use of masks by the public in specific situations.

In a new update, the WHO recommends use of masks irrespective of the local epidemiological situation, given the current spread of the COVID-19 globally. 

The WHO also updated its guidelines on mask wearing in community settings, including treatments, patient care and clinical management.

The global health body said that it is working with guideline development groups composed of independent, international experts who consider the latest available evidence and the changing epidemiology.

“Masks are recommended following a recent exposure to COVID-19, when someone has or suspects they have COVID-19, when someone is at high-risk of severe COVID-19, and for anyone in a crowded, enclosed, or poorly ventilated space.”

The Agency argued that previously, its recommendations were based on the epidemiological situation.
