Why Wearing A Face Mask Alone Will Not Protect You From COVID-19 – NCDC


Many states are enforcing the use of face mask in public, though the NCDC has advised that it is used as an optional additional layer of protection.

NCDC advised Nigerians not get a false sense of protection because they are wearing a mask, but should be combined with physical distancing.

In addition, when people wear face masks, cloth masks or other cloth covering for their face, the face masks should be carefully removed and if disposable, thrown away in a dustbin carefully or washed daily if made of cloth.
