'Masks here to stay’: ICMR chief on need to follow Covid protocol

Nov 29, 2020 09:24 IST

Speaking at a webinar hosted by a Lucknow university on Saturday, ICMR chief professor Balram Bhargava said India is making rapid progress as far as the development of Covid-19 vaccine is concerned. He however said the health protocols put in place to tackle the coronavirus will stay for a long time and people will have to continue wearing masks even after a vaccine is available. Calling masks ‘ fabric vaccine’, he said its contribution in stopping the Covid spread cannot be ignored. He added that masks also play an important role in keeping people who have recovered from the infection safe.
