"Many people could currently be infected with COVID-19 without showing any symptoms, therefore they would not know about their infection. As a result, they may infect healthy people, so it is most justified to use personal protective equipment to cover one’s nose and mouth in public spaces", stated the deputy Minister of Health, Waldemar Kraska.
