There is evidence to support the use of cloth face coverings to help slow the spread of COVID-19
Masks are in constant shortage the world over as the spread of Covid-19 increases. The World Health Organisation (WHO), South Africa's own NICD and other health bodies globally are shifting from the directive for only those who have Covid-19 and health workers to wear masks.
It now says everyone should wear masks when out shopping in contact with others. According to WHO and CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), there’s new evidence that there may be some benefit to wearing a cloth face mask in crowded places like the supermarket, versus no face covering at all. The directive is to wear cloth masks and not the N-95 and medical masks reserved for medical and health care workers. The beauty about the cloth face mask is that it can be washed and reused time and again, instead of only using them once and then discarding it. This is a major innovation and saving in itself and far more hygienic.
CDC and other health bodies globally continue to study the spread and effects of the novel coronavirus globally. We now know from recent studies done by CDC and WHO that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms and that even those who eventually develop symptoms can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity, for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing, even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, it is recommended to wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain e.g. grocery stores and pharmacies, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Global Health Bodies are advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others.
