          How Wearing a Face Mask Can Reduce the Risk of COVID-19 Infection

          During the ‘unlock phase’, it is important to wear a mask when outdoors. This infographic developed by Center for Communication and Change-India visually explains the importance of wearing a mask and how it can reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection/transmission. These infographics are available in English and other Indian languages.

            3-D Simulation about Social Distancing

            Scientists who study the transmission of respiratory illnesses like influenza say that infections typically happen when a healthy person comes into contact with respiratory droplets from an infected person’s cough, sneeze or breath.

            This simulation, created using research data from the Kyoto Institute of Technology, offers one view of what can happen when someone coughs indoors. A cough produces respiratory droplets of varying sizes. Larger droplets fall to the floor, or break up into smaller droplets.

              Advice on the Use of Masks in the Context of COVID-19

              This document is an update of the guidance published on 6 April 2020 and includes updated scientific evidence relevant to the use of masks for preventing transmission of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as well as practical considerations.

              The main differences from the previous version include the following:

              • Updated information on transmission from symptomatic, pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic people infected with COVID-19, as well as an update of the evidence of all sections of this document
              • New guidance on the targeted continuous use of medical masks by health workers working in clinical areas in health facilities in geographical areas with community transmission1 of COVID-19
              • Updated guidance and practical advice for decisionmakers on the use of medical and non-medical masks by the general public using a risk-based approach
              • New guidance on non-medical mask features and characteristics, including choice of fabric, number and combination of layers, shape, coating and maintenance

                Physical Distancing, Face Masks, and Eye Protection for Prevention of COVID-19

                Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) causes COVID-19 and is spread personto-person through close contact.

                The authors of this article aimed to investigate the effects of physical distance, face masks, and eye protection on virus transmission in health-care and non-health-care (eg, community) settings. They did a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the optimum distance for avoiding person-toperson virus transmission and to assess the use of face masks and eye protection to prevent transmission of viruses.

                The findings of this systematic review and meta-analysis support physical distancing of 1 m or more and provide quantitative estimates for models and contact tracing to inform policy. Optimum use of face masks, respirators, and eye protection in public and health-care settings should be informed by these findings and contextual factors. Robust randomised trials are needed to better inform the evidence for these interventions, but this systematic appraisal of currently best available evidence might inform interim guidance.
