- Considerable debates about the general community use of face masks for protection against COVID-19 stemmed out from differing views taken by health authorities.
- Misconceptions and stigmatization towards the use of face masks may hinder the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Suggest promoting effective behavioral changes in personal protective measures by teaching microbiological knowledge instead of just listing out the “dos- and-don’ts”.
