The World Health Organization is reconsidering its decision to tell healthy people not to wear face masks to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

"This is voluntary. I don't think I'm going to be doing it", Trump said.

It is still unclear whether this is true or not.

Experts have argued in Western states which there was little information to encourage wearing face masks to stop the spread of viruses.

'But as the evidence becomes available, it seems there will be a debate trying to decide whether masks play a role at some point in the outbreak'.

The US Centers for Disease Control had on Friday recommended the use of cloth face covers, especially in areas of significant community transmission of the virus. "The universal use of cloth masks will slow down transmission of the virus", said T. Jacob John, a clinical virologist and emeritus professor at the Christian Medical College, Vellore.
