Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has offered an alternative to masks amid reports of a shortage in his state of N95 masks recommended for protection against coronavirus. In a video on Twitter, Biplab Deb demonstrated how the traditional towel - known as gamchha - can be used instead. Addressing the people of Tripura, Deb urged them to ‘always keep a Gamchha’ handy for use as a mask.
