Briefings on the fight against coronavirus are continuing in Tashkent. A member of the staff of the fight against coronavirus Barno Abdusamatova answered a question about wearing masks.
Why don’t they cancel the wearing of masks in Uzbekistan?
– Masks do not protect 100% from the virus, it’s true. However, the mask will help reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus when worn by those who are infected. In some cases, the disease passes without symptoms, and the person may not even know that they are infected. For this reason, wearing masks is very important. This way we can reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
It is worth noting that in many countries, masks should only be worn in places where a large number of people congregate. In Uzbekistan, it is mandatory to wear masks from March 23.
