Acute Respiratory Sicknesses can be transmitted by respiratory droplets over a short distance or through direct contact with a patient’s secretions. Wearing a mask offers protection against various airborne bacteria, germs and viruses. If you have a respiratory tract infection, it also helps prevent the spread of the illness. Surgical mask, if properly worn, are effective in preventing the spread of droplet infections. Wearing a mask is just one way to help prevent respiratory tract infections. Most important is to observe good personal hygiene.  

Points to note about wearing a mask:

Wash hands before putting on a mask, before and after taking one off. When wearing a surgical mask, ensure that: The mask fits snugly over the face.The front side of the mask faces outwards.The strings or elastic bands are positioned properly to keep the mask firmly in place.The mask covers the nose, mouth and chin.Try not to touch the mask once it is secured on your face as frequent handling may reduce its protection. If you must do so, wash your hands before and after touching the mask. When taking off the mask, avoid touching the outside of the mask as this part may be covered with germs.After taking off the mask, fold the mask outwards (i.e. the outside of the mask facing inwards), then put the mask into a plastic or paper bag before putting it into a rubbish bin with a lid. A surgical mask should be discarded after use and under no circumstances should it be used for longer than a day.Replace the mask immediately if it is damaged or soiled.
