Face masks may never go away, believes ICMR DG

New Delhi, Jan 03 (ANI): Director General of ICMR, Dr. Balram Bhargava, shared his views on COVID situation and said he believes mask culture will probably never go. “We don't know for how long vaccine is going to effective, we don't know how much of the population we'll have to vaccinate to break the virus transmission. What we know is that we've been able to control the pandemic in the country by following COVID appropriate behaviour,” said DG ICMR. He even added, “I am of the opinion that masks will probably be the last to go & probably may never even go.”
