  • NCDC issues advice on use of  face masks


    The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Friday advised Nigerians to adopt all the COVID-19 containment measures including the use of face masks.

    These measures, the centre said on its Twitter handle, included avoiding large gatherings, physical distancing by maintaining a distance of 2 metres between yourself and others, regular hand washing with soap under running water, and frequent cleaning of surfaces with soap and water or disinfectants.

    The NCDC noted that COVID-19 was primarily spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.

    Also in response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Nigeria, it advises the use of face masks as an additional layer of physical distancing to help block the spread of respiratory droplets from person to person.

    Noting that the Federal Government has mandated the use of face masks in public, NCDC said due to the global shortage of medical face masks several countries are turning to alternatives forms for use by the general public.

    According to the centre, a cloth face mask, made out of everyday fabric can act as a barrier to respiratory droplets but cannot completely protect people from COVID-19.
