It is now proved that face masks combined with other preventions like hand washing frequently for 20 Seconds, and make social distancing helping much to stop the COVID-19 virus to spread Countrywide. The World Health Organization (WHO) now includes face masks in their recommendations to stop the increasing rate of COVID-19 virus. It should also be noted that at the beginning of the pandemic, masks were not recommended for the general public, but this changed the thought that the virus easily spread by affected patients as well.
We may see that many countries did not take it seriously that mask is mandatory with all other SOP's, so, they are still ravaged by viral diseases. In Contrast, other countries that mandated wearing masks in public places contained the novel coronavirus infection effectively.
Like in Pakistan, where many people wear masks has decreased the rate of growth of coronavirus nationwide. According to Public Health Experts, it is one of the reasons why Pakistan has decreased the growth rate of coronavirus in the country.
The World Health Organization issues the order to wear the mask in a public place. WHO has asked people to make wearing a mask a normal part of being around other people. The Latest Guidelines say, “Mask should be used as part of a comprehensive strategy of measures to suppress transmission and save a life; the use of a mask alone is sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection against COVID-19 pandemic”.
This summer, I got a chance to do volunteer work in different activities with MilKar platform, a non-profit organization. The MilKar platform, where there is masses number of volunteers across the nation. MilKar distributed massive number of Masks and ran the campaign #LahoreWearMask initiated by Commissioner Lahore to spread awareness nationwide, “Why is it important to wear a Mask?” With MilKar, I also distributed masks in different public places which itself is a good cause. MilKar used its platform to aware the public and urge them to participate in the Lahore Wear Mask as a volunteer. As their acts of today will significantly impact in building a better tomorrow.
Every non-profit organization/foundation with their volunteers conducts different campaigns in the nationwide. Likewise, “MilKar” is an organization that works for a social causes, MilKar works with organizations, volunteers, students, and institutes, etc.
Anyone who wants to produce for social cause and work for the betterment of the society on a wider scale, what social work/cause organizations do must be acknowledged and platforms like MilKar should be promoted for the nice work they are doing.
