    N-95 masks with breathing valves do not prevent COVID-19 spread: Health Ministry

    N-95 masks with valved respirators do not help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, a health ministry expert has said. Doctor Rajiv Garg, Director-General of Health Services – which comes under the Ministry of Health – has urged all states and union territories to take cognizance of the fact that such masks won't check the spread of COVID-19.

    In a letter dated July 20 and addressed to health authorities concerned in all states and UTs, he said: “The use of valved respirator N-95 masks is detrimental to the measures adopted for preventing spread of coronavirus as it does not prevent the virus from escaping out of the mask.”

    The letter further urged the authorities to revisit the advisory issued by the Health Ministry regarding the use of home-made protective cover for the face and mouth, which is available on the ministry’s website.
