Face Masks Should Have 3 Layers Of Fabric

Fabric mask or non-medical mask can be used by the general public in areas where there are many people infected with COVID-19 in the community, and physical distancing of at least one metre cannot be achieved, says Dr Baller in WHO’s IGTV.

A wide variety of masks are available in stores, and you can also make one at home. “These masks act as a barrier so that you can protect those around you. They should ideally be made of at least three layers of fabric,” Dr Baller says in the video.
