‘Its time to wear mask inside the house’

While addressing a press briefing on the prevailing Covid-19 situation, NITI Aayog member (Health) Dr VK Paul said that people should also avoid stepping out of their homes unnecessarily.

Amidst the ongoing surge in the second wave of Covid-19 in the country, the Central government has said the time has now come to wear a mask even at home as well, and avoid inviting guests. While addressing a press briefing on the prevailing Covid-19 situation, NITI Aayog member (Health) Dr VK Paul said that people should also avoid stepping out of their homes unnecessarily.

He also added that If there is a Covid-positive person inside the house, he or she must wear the mask so as to prevent other family members from getting infected.

“Rather, I’ll say that the time has come that we start wearing masks even otherwise inside our homes. We used to talk about wearing it outside homes, but the way the infection has spread, it will be better if we wear mask inside our homes if we are sitting with someone. But, definitely, if there is a Covid-19 positive person, that person must wear the mask and others inside the house also must wear a mask and the positive person should be kept in a different room,” Paul said in the briefing
