Does anyone know where you get get these from? I've tried a couple of local pharmacists but they don't appear to have any in.

Thanks in advance,

I made this from a sheet of kitchen roll and two elastic bands folded in a fan shape and folded at the ends and stapled. Not ideal but better than nothing.
Worth a Blue Peter badge maybe lol

There's a worldwide shortage of face masks and unless you are caring for someone suspected to have Covid-19, or have a cough and believe you may have contracted the disease, it is not recommended to use them. This extract from the UK's medical journal, The Lancet, explains:

"We compared face mask use recommendations by different health authorities. Despite the consistency in the recommendation that only symptomatic individuals and those in healthcare settings should use face masks, discrepancies were observed in the general public and community settings.

"For example, the US Surgeon General advised against buying masks for use by healthy people. One important reason to discourage widespread use of face masks is to preserve limited supplies for professional use in health-care settings. Universal face mask use in the community has also been discouraged with the argument that face masks provide no effective protection against coronavirus infection."

The WHO are changing their minds about the information that was put out about masks.

They cannot make it worse!
