But when we look around, we see that many people do not know or do not follow the rules of wearing a mask in the right way. As a result, many of us get infected with the covid 19 virus even after taking one or two doses of the vaccine. Improper wearing of masks and not wearing masks are equally harmful. Which can cause serious disaster for you and your family. That is why it is important to know what to do and what to avoid when wearing a mask.
