Dubai Doctor Finally Ends Online Debate On The Correct Way Of Wearing Surgical Mask
Residents of the UAE can now be seen wearing surgical masks outside after reports on the first coronavirus case in the country.
With this, many residents are arguing on what's the correct way to wear a surgical mask to reduce the risk of getting the deadly virus.
Some say that if you're sick and do not want to spread germs around, you need to wear the mask with colored side out. And some netizens also claim that you wear your mask white side out when you're not sick and you want to stop germs from getting in.
To put an end to this debate, Filipino General Physician Dr. Daffodils Guevarra posted on her personal page the truth.
"The standard surgical mask has a repellant coloured side and an absorbent white side. The only correct way to wear this kind of mask, according to the WHO, is to 'SHOW YOUR COLOR.'
"Wear the coloured facing out. Please read carefully," she added.
