Using masks is the most effective way to prevent corona infection: Satyendra Jain
Health Minister Satyendar Jain gave all the information after press conference about growing corona infection in Delhi. He said that we have learned from the experiences during lockdown that the best way to prevent corona infection is to use the mask to the maximum.
The longer we wear masks upon exit, the safer we will be. He said that many people have stopped wearing masks and many people are seen to be negligent in applying masks. People should not do this. However, we are trying to make them aware of the use of masks and for this, many types of campaigns are also being organized by the Delhi government.
