The coronavirus is being spread through droplets and mucus. These droplets and mucus come out when a person coughs or sneezes. Wearing the masks will be helpful in blocking droplets and protect from inhaling it.
The masks should be at least a two-layered cotton cloth that should not leave any space between the face and the mask, the orders said.
States like Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Karnataka and Delhi have already made wearing masks mandatory to their citizens.
