- May 06, 2020-

Cloth masks have no effect on preventing coronavirus infection. It is recommended to wear disposable surgical masks or N95 masks to prevent coronavirus infections. These two masks have a better effect on preventing coronavirus infections. In addition, close contact with patients with suspected new coronavirus pneumonia should be avoided. This is because even when wearing a mask during close contact, the occurrence of heart coronavirus pneumonia cannot be prevented.

Therefore, we should minimize assembly, try not to go to public places, and minimize going out. These measures are conducive to preventing the occurrence of new coronavirus pneumonia. Also pay attention to hand hygiene. Washing hands frequently can also help prevent coronavirus infection.
