A new normal that we’re all getting used to is wearing our masks. We rarely leave our houses without our trusted face masks and even if we do, there are only a few places that actually allow you to enter their premises without masks on.
However, wearing a mask is useless if you’re not doing it properly! Our Health Director-General, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, informed on his Facebook yesterday, 19th July, that we should NEVER bring our masks down to the chin even when we’re eating.
Either you wear your mask properly or remove It completely.
When you bring your mask down to your chin or neck, you’re essentially contaminating it through the exposed area. When this happens, your mouth and nose will be infected by bacteria and even viruses.
If you’re out for a meal, instead of bringing your mask down, just remove it completely. Make sure to always carry spare masks with you.
We need to remember that despite being in the Recovery Movement Control Order, the Covid-19 threat isn’t behind us. We recorded 15 new cases yesterday with four imported and 11 local transmission cases.
According to Astro AWANI, four new clusters have also been detected at:
- Pitakwa PUI cluster
- Shirala PUI cluster
- Kuching medical centre cluster
- Jupiter cluster
Make sure to don your masks at all times and practice social distancing. Download the MySejahtera app and register before you enter any premises. Remember, the fight against Covid-19 doesn’t lie on the shoulders of our frontliners alone, we’re in this together!
