Since today new quarantine restrictions are introduced in Ukraine. In particular, it is forbidden to be in public places without wearing a respirator or mask. Now grocery shopping without a mask can cost you 17000 UAH.
Citizens must provide themselves with masks and respirators on their own. Buying this protective equipment is still quite difficult. The drug stores are almost run out of them. The price starts from 25 UAH for a disposable mask.
Health workers are convinced that protective masks should only be worn by people with symptoms of the disease, as well as health workers who are in contact with patients. And it is recommended to use one mask only two hours.
Healthy people can only harm themselves by using them, because the mask still does not protect them from the contaminated air.
The government suggests using homemade masks. However, their degree of protection is even lower.
Using disposable protective masks gives imaginary safety. People will wear a disposable mask many times.
