Stitch by stitch, you’ll save children’s lives

UNICEF’s Coronavirus Response Strategy is in line with the World Health Organization (WHO). WHO recognises that there are many questions about the use of face masks to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in the community, and that many countries are recommending that people wear them. Wearing a medical mask can limit the spread of certain respiratory viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection. Other measures such as physical distancing and hand hygiene should be adopted. For more information please refer to WHO.
