Journal Title:Acta Scientific Otolaryngology
The confirmed cases of COVID-19 are increasing in India even after more than a year of the pandemic (as of April 19, 2021). The standard preventive measures to fight against the virus are to wear face mask, social distancing, frequent hand washing or sanitizing and to get vaccinated, if eligible. The masks act as a physical bar-rier to guard you and others from the infection. Un-doubtfully wearing a mask, especially if in close proximity to others, is im-perative to break the chain and contain the spread of COVID-19.
