Wear face mask when travelling, says Khan

London

18 April 2020
 

People should be advised to wear face masks when travelling in London, said this week.  

The mayor believes masks could help reduce the spread of Covid-19. The BBC quoted him saying: “The evidence around the world is that this is effective. I’m lobbying our Government and advisers to change their advice, and I want us to do that sooner rather than later. They are already reviewing this on the basis of our representation.”

The Government’s social distancing guidelines do not  currently mention face masks.

Although there is a debate about how effective masks are at reducing the risk of contracting the virus, some health experts say the bigger benefit comes from reducing the risk of a carrier spreading the infection.
