CDC urges more Americans to wear N95 masks

U.S. health officials have encouraged the use of N95 and KN95 masks to slow the spread of corona virus.

These types of masks are considered better for purifying the air. But in the past, there has been a shortage of these masks, and officials at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention say the masks should be a priority for healthcare workers.

According to the latest guidelines, CDC officials, while removing concerns about supply shortages, have made it clear that regular-fitting N95 and KN95 masks provide the most protection.

However, agency officials made it clear that some masks are harder to tolerate than others, and the agency urged people to choose the best-fitting masks that they can wear permanently.

CDC spokeswoman Christine Nordlund said in a statement that Pamara’s basic message is that no mask is better than no mask at all.

The CDC has periodically improved its guidelines on the duration of the global epidemic.

A previous update from the CDC encouraged the disposable N95 mask, saying that it could be worn in a variety of situations, such as caring for a patient or traveling long distances.
