Hospital administrator decries improper wearing of face masks in Anambra



ADMINISTRATOR, State Hospital Management Board, Enugwu-Ukwu, Richmond Achugbu has decried the attitude of people who wear face masks in the jaw instead of covering their mouths and noses.

  Dr Achugbu said this shortly after Monday morning routine prayer session at the hall of the General Hospital, Enugwu-Ukwu.

 According to him,“Proper wearing of the facemasks entails that one’s mouth and nose must be covered; this is to help to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.”

He maintained that proper wearing of face masks would not only help people not to contract the disease but would prevent them from infecting others.

  “The face mask should always be worn properly. It is not a jaw mask, so do not wear it on your jaw but properly wear it to cover your nose and mouth.”

  Dr Achugbu demonstrated to staff members how to wash and sanitise their hands with soap, water and hand sanitiser.

  He noted that strict adherence to safety measures outlined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to fight COVID-19 would help in reducing the spread.

He gave out bottles of hand sanitisers to workers, urging them to always make use of them.
