Due to rise in fear of contracting the COVID 19 (coronavirus) general public & many organisations are using these disposable masks which is very harmful for our environment. The PP masks break down into micro-plastics which is killing our aquatic & wildlife. There is no collection & recycling system currently deployed to deal with this immediate threat to our environment.

Overuse & bulk panic buying of these surgical masks has led to shortage in availability of these masks which are vital for the health care industry. These surgical masks which are vital for health care professionals to help protect themselves from pathogens and germs during surgical procedures are not effective against preventing risk of infection from viruses as mentioned by the WHO.

 

The most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID 19; as adviced by WHO is to wash your hands with soap regularly & social distancing.
