the world health organisation, WHO, has changed its recommendations on the use of the facial mask.
It writes the BBC.
the world health organisation recommends now that all use the mundbind, when you are in places where it is difficult to keep distance to the others.
It says the organisation's director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, during a news conference Friday.
Seen in the light of new research, WHO recommends that governments should encourage the general public to wear mundbind in places where there is massespredning, and where the social distance is difficult to comply with.
- For example, in public transport, in shops or other places with limited space or densely populated areas, says director-general.
Some countries, different places in the world recommends or instructs that the wear face mask in public.
the WHO has previously said that there was not evidence enough to say that healthy people should wear masks.
the Organization is all the time recommended health care workers to wear mask when they are in contact with sick persons.
Masks alone can not, however, protect against coronasmitte, reads it also from the WHO.
Masks may provide a false sense of security, which allows people to look great on the hand hygiene and distance, says Tedros at the press conference.
the WHO also recommends that vulnerable groups such as persons over 60 years of age, and persons who have other ailments, should wear medical face masks in places where it is difficult to keep distance.
In Denmark, director at Danish Health and medicines authority, Søren Brostrøm, repeatedly said that it will not recommend healthy danes that use the face mask.
In the entire world there are registered more than 394.000 coronarelaterede deaths, while over 6,7 million persons have been tested positive with the virus.
