Doctors declare surgical mask unsafe in smog

Medical experts and doctors have declared the surgical mask unsafe for protecting citizens of Lahore from heavy smog.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the medical experts and doctors were not fully satisfied with the surgical masks available in the city in a big quantity as full protector of smog.

During a survey conducted on the 24News HD TV, they said the surgical mask that was being used by masses couldn’t protect them from respiratory illness.

They advised the citizens of Lahore to use a mask that must protect their nose and mouth completely from the polluted air to save themselves respiratory system-related diseases.

On the other hand, the mask vendors have introduced an anti-smog mask in the name of ‘Korean Mask’ that was also available in the local market having a different shape to the surgical masks.
