Wear masks in public, says WHO, in update of COVID-19 advice

The World Health Organisation (WHO) is now recommending the use of fabric face masks in public places where social distancing is not possible. The global body said new information showed they could provide ’a barrier for potentially infectious droplets’.The WHO had previously argued there was not enough evidence to say that healthy people should wear masks.
