When and How to Use Surgical Masks?
When and How to Use Surgical Glove?
The use of sterile gloves against coronavirus is also not recommended. These gloves used by health personnel are used based on certain rules. These gloves become permeable after a certain hour. For this reason, it is also not recommended to use gloves.
Fabric/cloth masks do not protect you from virus. The masks which are not used according to the rules become more vulnerable to viruses. If you feel sick and are diagnosed, you should wear a mask to prevent the virus from infecting other people.
