Mask guide for children from the World Health Organization!
The World Health Organization has published its guide on face masks for children as students are slowly getting ready to return to school.
While the World Health Organization recommends that children under the age of 5 wear masks according to their location, it warned that children between the ages of 6 and 11 should use masks according to their location and the risk they carry.
The World Health Organization also stated in the guide that it has published that children aged 12 and over must comply with social distance rules and must wear masks like adults.
Created with UNICEF, the International Pediatric Association and other healthcare organizations and professionals, the guide aims to protect children from the virus in a safe way.
Studies show that older children have a much greater potential to transmit the virus to other people than younger ones. As a matter of fact, coronavirus was detected in more than 75 thousand children between 30 July and 13 August in the USA alone, and there was a huge increase of 24 percent in total.
Emphasizing that wearing a mask is a critical tool in combating the epidemic, the World Health Organization emphasized that these measures are necessary for a safe life away from the epidemic for everyone.
