Wear a mask only if you are sick, sneezing or coughing, or exposed to someone who is sick
Well insulated: Jai Dhar wearing his company’s protection suit
Personal protection equipment such as masks, suits, and sanitisers have been in great demand. And despite explicit use-case advisories from the WHO and others, there has been a tendency to hoard. Parts to produce masks sourced from China have been hard to come by. In about 15 days, we’ll launch a natural mask’, made in India using nano-technology. These will be 50 percent cheaper; we’re expecting high sales, says Gupta.
1. Wear a mask only if you are sick, sneezing or coughing, or exposed to someone who is sick
2. Make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask
3. Re-use a mask only if it is a sterilisable type
4. Before putting on a mask, clean hands with alcohol-based hand-rub or soap and water
5. Avoid touching the mask while using it; if you do, clean your hands
6. Replace the mask if it gets damp
7. Do not re-use single-use masks
8. Remove mask from behind (don’t touch the front of the mask); discard immediately in a closed bin; clean hands.
