There's not any solid scientific evidence that wearing surgical or cloth masks is effective protection against the virus, and N95 masks, the type that do stop viruses, are already in extremely short supply around the world, including in hospitals, where they're needed most.

I dream of tuning in to a press conference where everyone - politicians, medical experts, and even President Donald Trump - is wearing his or her own homemade mask.

"If you are making your own mask, they must be washed and dried appropriately - not left hanging over a radiator for days - or thrown away and a new one created".

"People may not fit the masks properly or take them on and off".

There was mixed evidence, but most indications were that surgical masks would have some benefits, and even an improvised cloth mask was likely to be better than nothing, though the US Centres for Disease Control was looking into this, he told RNZ. "Depending on the material, it's thicker".

He said the recommendations would not be mandatory "because some people don't want to do that" and that "people can pretty much decide for themselves right now".

The administration has said states should have done more to stockpile medical supplies, but it's not clear if anyone is prepared for the rush that could ensue if everyone follows the White House guidance.

N95 respirators and surgical masks (face masks) are examples of personal protective equipment that are used to protect the wearer from airborne particles and from liquid contaminating the face. "They wear them incorrectly, and they can increase the risk of infection because they're touching their face more often".

If you're walking around a grocery store, it's not necessary to wear a mask, Bickel said.

Deliveries to New Zealand of 41 million masks by privately chartered plane, and to public Ministry of Health stocks, will begin to arrive from tomorrow, and the ministry is trying to secure 20 million more masks per month. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.

The spread of the disease by people who are asymptomatic could be one reason for the CDC to reconsider its recommendation.

Vice President Mike Pence addressed the potential for a mask advisory based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at Thursday's daily briefing on the pandemic. But federal officials are expected to limit the recommendations to places with high rates of community spread.

Tables and chairs are taped for the social distancing law enforcement to help curb the spread of the coronavirus at a Starbucks coffee shop in Hong Kong.

But Dr Harvey Fineberg, chair of a US National Academy of Sciences committee on infectious diseases advising the White House, wrote in an April 1 letter to the government, that there is some evidence to suggest that this coronavirus can spread just through exhalation or conversation, citing several recent studies.

Officials caution that should this become the new official guidance, Americans shouldn't be lulled into a false sense of security.

Countries such as Taiwan, South Korea, and China that have encouraged their people to wear masks in public seem to have greater success in preventing major outbreaks like the current pandemic.

People who are not sick had not been advised to wear a face mask by the CDC.

However, Spencer said that the mask will not give full protection from the virus, therefore, social distancing must continue to be practiced.

On Monday, he noted that the World Health Organization does not recommend masks for healthy members of the population.

"The big mistake in the US and Europe, in my opinion, is that people aren't wearing masks", George Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who played a crucial role in controlling the pandemic in China, told the Science magazine.
