There will be a debate regarding emphasizing on social distancing or the use of facemasks. As medicines are going to run out of supply very soon, and nearly 10 million Americans have registered themselves for unemployment benefits.
Right now, there are more than 1 million people who are COVID-19 positive around the globe. All the countries are facing difficulties in meeting medical supplies. On Thursday, President Trump administration seemed to be in a state of dilemma regarding the recommendation of wearing face masks when they go out in public.
Like the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Federal Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not issued an advisory for ordinary people for wearing masks unless they see any symptoms of COVID-19. The reason behind not allowing wearing masks to ordinary people is to preserve medical-grade face masks, including N95 and N99 respiratory face masks for medical workers who are in the utmost need of these medical supplies.
In a briefing at the white house, President Donald Trump commented that his administration is planning to come out for regulations on the wearing of facemasks. They will emphasize on voluntary use of facemasks.
According to federal, CDC has been planning to implement a restriction of wearing facemask while going in public places like the grocery store and pharmacies to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
