Video: WHO instructs on how to wear and remove masks properly to avoid reverse infection of pathogen

Before wearing a mask, you must also wash your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (over 60%) or soap and clean water.



The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that two subjects should wear masks during the new corona virus epidemic. The first is those who are having symptoms of cough, fever, difficulty breathing. These people should wear masks as a precaution for others around them.


The second is healthy people who are in the same room as someone who is suspected or has been infected with the new corona virus.


It can be understood that it is doctors, family members taking care of people with suspected symptoms, or anyone who is worried that there is a person infected with corona virus in their office or other small space.

But when wearing a mask, you must put it on and remove it properly to work. In addition, the medical mask is a disposable product, you cannot reuse it, so please put it in the trash immediately after use. This will prevent pathogens from spreading back from the mask into your respiratory tract.


In the video below,  Christine Francis, WHO's infection control and prevention expert, will guide you to put on and remove a mask properly:




WHO says when wearing a mask you need to remember a few things:


1. Before wearing a mask, also wash your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (over 60%) or soap and clean water.


2. Make sure the mask covers your mouth and nose, there is no gap between your face and the mask.


3. While wearing the mask, avoid touching its surface. If accidentally touched, wash your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (over 60%) or soap and clean water.


4. Replace your mask with a new one if it becomes damp or steamy.


5. When removing the mask, remove it from the back (grasp the strap to remove, not the front of the mask).


6. After removing the mask, dispose of it in a closed trash can with a lid.


7. Finally, don't forget to wash your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (over 60%) or soap and water.
