LIVE WHO: fabric mouthcaps are still effective

Even now that vaccination has begun, the coronavirus blown over from China continues to cause worldwide disruption. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 2 million people have died of the virus worldwide. In the Netherlands, about 13,000 people have succumbed to the virus. More than 100 million coronavirus infections have been detected worldwide. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.

Even with new coronavirus mutants running around, dust mouth masks are still effective to prevent the spread of the virus. This is what the World Health Organization (WHO) reports on Friday, which adds that it has no plans to adapt the recommendations.

โ€œ The fabrics, non-surgical masks can be used by anyone under 60 years of age who has no particular health problems,โ€ said Maria Van Kerkhove. At the WHO, the US is responsible for managing the pandemic. โ€œIn regions where the virus circulates, people have to carry them when they are packed together and it becomes impossible to keep at least one meter away from others. And also in poorly ventilated areas.โ€

Germany and Austria forced earlier this week to wear surgical masks in shops and public transport. โ€œCountries are free to take measures they deem necessary,โ€ says Van Kerkhove. โ€œBut even with the variants that can be more contagious, we have no indication that the way in which those variants are transmitted is different.โ€
