Insights on Nasal Spray & Face Masks
Earlier, only people working at health care centers, mining sites, or digging sites wore masks. However, in Japan, it is common among the public to wear masks to protect oneself from dust, air pollution and many other communicable diseases. On the other hand, nasal sprays were commonly used in providing medication against congestion in the nose caused by various conditions such as common cold, allergies, sinusitis, and hay fever only.
However, in 2019, a newly identified virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infected many people around the globe, where it is believed that this novel disease began in Wuhan, China and was declared as pandemic by WHO in March 2020. Further, to prevent the spreading of infection various precautionary measures were taken such as wearing of masks, social distancing, staying in quarantine etc. Face masks along with sanitizers and social distancing are proved to be one of the best safety measures against coronavirus. Wearing a mask not only protects the person who is wearing it, but also the person around him.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has made it mandatory for everyone to wear a face mask and to maintain a social distance of about 6 feet. So, after 2019, wearing a mask was not limited to only healthcare professionals or miners, however every person adapted himself to wear a mask for getting protection from the virus as well as preventing onward transmission of the virus from one person to another thereafter.
