Coronavirus Pandemic: Face mask not enough to protect from coronavirus, says White House

Wearing a face mask alone is not adequate enough to protect an individual from coronavirus, the White House has said, emphasising that the strict enforcement of social distancing measures and other precautions are key in the fight against the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. The White House announcement came amidst an intense debate in the US on the necessity of wearing a face mask.

"Just remember, it (face mask) is not a substitute for everything that were asking people to do," Deborah Brix from the White House Task Force on Coronavirus told reporters at a news conference on Thursday.
