What does the World Health Organization recommend?

In the World Health Organization guidelines on masks they state the following “Wearing a medical mask can limit the spread of certain respiratory viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the use of a mask alone is not sufficient to provide an adequate level of protection. Other measures such as physical, or “social”, distancing, hand hygiene and cleaning frequently touched places by members of the public should be adopted.”
