Many countries including Malaysia have imposed restrictions to buckle up against the new Omicron variant. Even though most of the Malaysian population has already gotten both doses of vaccines, booster shots are still needed in response to the Covid-19 variants.

Practice like wearing face masks in public, social distancing and the use of MySejahtera is still ongoing to fight against the Covid-19 virus. According to the health website CodeBlue which gathered the opinions of health experts across the world, cloth masks are not useful at all against the Omicron variant.


The health professionals explain that cloth masks have minimal effects on filtrating, and most of them have more function to style than to protect.

At this period of time, it is crucial that the public wears masks like surgical masks, N95 masks and other medical masks that can protect them against the deadly virus.

More potential Omicron cases have also been found in the country, thus remember not to be complacent and follow the professional guidelines to ensure the safety of yourself and the people around you.
