This is the medical report in Yucatan for Tuesday, February 8th
(MERIDA, YUC. – SSY).- The Yucatan Ministry of Health (SSY) recommends to the Yucatecan population avoid the use of cloth face masks or scarves since it is described that IT DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY PROTECTION AGAINST COVID, INCLUDING THE ÓMICRON VARIANT, therefore, to protect each other, we suggests the use of two-layer, three-layer or medical-grade masks such as KN95, since these have up to 95% coverage against Omicron.
